Board will meet at wood tech center|
The Langlade County Board shifts its site for the December meeting Tuesday, holding it in a conference room at the Wood Technology Center on Forest Avenue.
The session begins at 9 a.m., and the public is invited to attend.
The supervisors will be thanking one of their former members, Richard Olsen, who served the Ward 1 district of Elcho for over a decade. He retired his post earlier in the fall because he was moving to Arizona.
Olsen was a lively member of the board who brought levity to the sessions. His position has been filled by Gary Johnson of Elcho.
Claudia Baker of the Lumberjack RC&D Council will make a presentation and offer an award to the county during her remarks. Chris Berry, who heads the county’s economic development office, will also speak on upcoming training opportunities through the economic program.
In new business, supervisors will discuss using cash from the fund balance to purchase a huge tract of forest in northeastern Langlade County from Plum Creek. The lands would allow sustained timber harvests in the highly-successful county forestry program.
In the consent agenda it is expected that Daniel Kamps will be re-appointed to the Veterans Service Commission for a three-year term and the board will review the statistical report on property valuations.
Two zone changes will be considered.
One is being sought by Michael and Lisa Sekeres for a change in the town of Peck from A-1 to A-2 classification.
The other is being asked by Sherrell Steckbauer for a piece of land, also in the town of Peck.
She is seeking a switch from forestry to A-1.
Both proposals come to the board with approval recommended.
In the resolutions segment of the meeting a compensation plan will be considered for the Highway Department union.
If approved the compensation considers stating wages and then works it way to step 10 as experience grows
The board will also consider a work plan for the forests which outlines the types of trees, the quantity and other factors including invasive species, reforestation, recreation and land purchases.
It is likely that a proposal to create an advisory committee to help anticipate the rewriting of the farmland preservation and the Water resources management plans will be approved.
The land conservation budget will fund the meeting per diems.
