After five years without one, the Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation committee will make their feelings known about hiring a Department of Natural Resources Warden for the area when it meets on Tuesday. A DNR warden handles complaints, responds to environmental and spill issues and participates in field work among other duties in their given region. In the past, the DNR has told Kewaunee County it has lacked a warden because of a lack of qualified candidates and a lack of interest in working in the county. Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation committee member Lee Luft says every county is required to have a warden and hopes a resolution passed by the group adds urgency to the search.
The committee will take up the resolution as a part of its discussion during their monthly meeting beginning at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Land and Water Conservation Department in Luxemburg.
