The big topic of conservation at the Kewaunee County Board meeting on Tuesday night was how to move forward with plans in renovating or replacing the jail. Venture Architects, a Milwaukee firm, made recommendations to the Kewaunee County Board about how they should go about either building a new jail or renovating the current one. The firm recommended a couple of other sites to choose from if they decide to build a new jail. The Kewaunee County Board did not make a decision about which direction they would choose. Kewaunee County Board Chairman Robert Weidner says if a renovation is the answer, they would have to get creative as there is limited space to do so where it is now.
The board also made sure all county departments have a clear oversight committee to which they report.
