County Board hopes to encourage state to reopen

The Kewaunee County Board could formally ask the state to begin the reopening process after its newest members are seated on Tuesday. The board will elect a new chairperson and vice-chairperson and address some of its other organizational details before taking up the resolution. The measure asks Governor Tony Evers to begin reopening the state on May 12th rather than letting his May 26th Safer at Home order expire. May 12th corresponds with the first day after Governor Evers’ emergency powers end. Kewaunee County Public Health Director Cindy Kinnard will give a COVID-19 update to the board prior to the vote. Members of the public will be able to watch Tuesday’s meeting stream on YouTube beginning at  4 p.m. Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt and Corporation Counsel Jeff Wisnicky could not be reached at the original time of this posting.
