Tuesday, April 24th - New Kewaunee Co. Board

The "New" Kewaunee County Board will meet at 5:30 PM, and following some brief descriptions of responsibilities will be sworn in on Tuesday evening at the Kewaunee Co. Board Room at about 6:45 PM.  I posted the members of the new board last week on my blog.

So, on Tuesday evening the Board will be called to order by the Administrator, Scott Feld.  Scott will lead the board through the pledge and prayer and will, along with the County Board Legal Counsel, Jeff Wisnicky will explain to the new board what will transpire that evening.

The first order of business will be to elect a new Chairman who will serve for the next two years.  Bob Weidner was the Chairman for the past two years and I have heard from reliable sources that he is running again for the Chairman position and I also have reports that Lee Luft is also seeking that position.  So there will be a vote taken for the Chairman position.  In years past, the candidates seeking that position have been allowed to make a few minutes statement as to why they would be the person to vote for.

Once the Chairman is voted in, the new Chairman will take the gavel and commence the activity of appointing the various committees.  The Chairman will meet with each member of the board in private to discuss what committee / committees the individual member will be appointed to.  The Chairman appoints all the committees with exception of the Highway Committee which is elected by the full board.

In years past while the private interviews were going on, there was a bit of dead time for the members.  This year, in addition to photos being taken of each member there will be an orientation presented for the board.
