The lack of a Department of Natural Resources game warden in Kewaunee County has the board of supervisors considering changes. It will first hold a first reading of an illegal burning ordinance, allowing Sheriff’s Department deputies to enforce state laws based on what you can burn and when you can do it. The board will also discuss a previously read ordinance aligning county standards with the newly passed NR-151 rules. Those changes affect all farmers spreading manure on thin topsoils due to the area’s karst geography. Kewaunee County Board Chairperson Robert Weidner says there has been no news on specifically when a game warden will be hired for the area.
The Kewaunee County Board will meet on September 18th at the administrative center in Kewaunee at 6 p.m.
