The retirement of a long-time administrator created an opportunity for Kewaunee County to merge two departments Tuesday. The zoning department will merge its services with the land and water conservation department after Director of Zoning Glenn Selner retired after nearly 40 years of service to the county. The zoning department had been in charge of septic inspections, shoreland permits, and building questions. Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt says the merger will not only save the county money but also help the department be more efficient moving forward.
Beginning Wednesday, zoning questions will be directed to the Land and Water Conservation Department offices located at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds in Luxemburg.
