The weather here has been truly great
|The Langlade County Board of Supervisors will hold its annual budget hearing Tuesday at 9 a.m. and after that is closed, the regular October meeting.|
The public is invited to attend both sessions on the lower level of the countys Safety Building.
The budget hearing is traditionally quiet and after a reading of the overview of the 2018 financial picture by Finance Director Carlene Nagel, questions and concerns will be addressed. When the budget issues are settled, the regular session comes to life.
It is a busy agenda that calls for a number of major pieces of business, including the final action on purchase and financing of the Robert S. Lyle Scout Reservation, an idled Boy Scout camp in the town of Elcho.
Supervisors, who previously approved the action at a 2016 meeting, will consider the final action on the 522-acre tract of land southeast of Lower Post Lake.
The resolution states acquisition of this property will perpetually provide forest products to our local economy, revenues to the county and outdoor recreation opportunities to the public.
The scout complex will be purchased for $1.350 million with $636,000

It was ideal for just about everyone.
Of course, all good things do come to an end, anD if you plan on doing those outdoor things on Saturday, try to get rolling a little earlier because as the day wears on the opportunity for rain increases. The National Weather Service said this morning that this evening will be partly cloudy with a low of 52 and on Saturday morning, partly sunny and a high of 70. The sure-thing sort of rain showers will come later in the afternoon and the evening, the Weather Service said.
