After receiving approval from the Land and Water Conservation Committee earlier this month, the Kewaunee County Board will have its first discussion on new agricultural performance standards for the area. Changes to Kewaunee County’s Chapter 39 ordinances would mimic the state’s new NR-151 rules, which went into effect on July 1st. Land and Water Conservation Chairperson Chuck Wagner says the new standards will not be any stricter than the state’s but help the county respond to the issues as they occur.
A final vote on the ordinance changes will not occur until the next meeting. The Kewaunee County Board will consider four resolutions when they meet Tuesday in Kewaunee at 6 p.m., which include decisions on purchasing new highway equipment and urging the state for a sustainable funding solution for the state’s transportation system.
