The Kewaunee County Board held their final meeting prior to next Tuesday’s election and Chair Bob Weidner says one issue that will be awaiting the new board this year will be a new jail building. Weidner says a Jail Needs Assessment Study will be the first step.
Weidner says a new building site is needed since the current courthouse location does not provide sufficient space for a jail. He says the county owns five or six acres in the city of Kewaunee which may or may not be big enough to for the project. The Kewaunee County Board did approve unanimously the two resolutions Tuesday to urge the Department of Natural Resources to hire a conservation warden to fill the vacancy left open for the last six years and to assist snowmobile and ATV trail rehabilitation projects for next year.
