All chairs expected to be filled for County Board organizational meeting
space
The Langlade County Board of Supervisors will hold its April organizational meeting Tuesday, and following the spring election, all districts will be represented.

While they cannot be called new members of the board yet — since they have not been sworn in — there is quite a field who won elections and drew write-in ballots.

Awaiting the meeting Tuesday are Sandy Fischer, District Two, John Breske, District Six, Reinhardt Balcerzak, District Eight, Ben Pierce, District 17, William Livingston, District 18 and Richard Wiegert, District 21.

The meeting will be called to order at 9 a.m. on the lower level of the Safety Building, which is accessible for individuals with handicaps.

 The public is invited to attend the meeting.

After formalities including the oath of office is delivered, a temporary chairman will be selected and the session will get underway.

The first order of business will be to review and adopt the rules of the board except for 18.1, which deals with changes requiring a three-fourths vote of members in attendance.

The election will follow. Those being selected by a simple majority will be:

—Chairman of the board

—Vice-chairman

—Second vice-chairman

—Highway Committee chairman

—Vice-chairman of Highway Committee

—Secretary of Highway Committee

—Two additional members for Highway Committee

—Personnel Committee chairman

—Personnel Committee members (4)

—Executive Committee members (2).

After the elections are completed, Corporation Counsel Robin Stowe will discuss the difference between a super-majority and a simple majority vote and how it may impact the business of the county board.

The discussion is designed for possible changes in the 18.1 rule, that was omitted in earlier action.

During the business session, a 2018 manure storage ordinance will be considered with an eye on updating references to state standards and clarifying existing language. 

The ordinance touches on definitions, standards, permits, fees, plan requirements and administrative duties.

Supervisors will also consider changes in the zoning ordinance that involves shorelands, floodplains, conditional use permits, mobile phone tower locations, community living arrangements, duties of the zoning administrator, fees and processing violations.

There are three resolutions, including one that will carry unexpended 2017 accounts amounting to $845,708.83, into the 2018 budget. 

Another resolution will straighten out an error in designation on a 100-foot strip of land adjacent to the Sawyer Lake boat landing. 

That will be handled by shifting it to Margaret St. Ledger, who has been paying the property taxes on it since 1977. The action will come on a quit claim deed.

The board will also consider a resolution to establish an ad hoc committee to develop options to complete the five-year review of the compensation matrix.

That document is used to set wages of many of the county’s employees.
