When the town has a spot to fill on its board or in a committee, there is a good chance Paul Schwengel will be included in the conversation. The Town of Liberty Grove voted unanimously on Wednesday to install Schwengel as an interim supervisor after Lou Covostos resigned earlier this month. Schwengel is currently serving on the town’s plan commission and finance committee, but he has frequently served the board and on other committees on an interim basis in the past. Town chairperson John Lowry says Schwengel is a huge asset for Liberty Grove in these types of situations because of his familiarity with local government.
Schwengel will serve on the board until the term is up in April. The Town of Liberty Grove Board will have a big decision coming up at its next meeting when it weighs in on its own short-term rental ordinance. Lowry says the plan commission has forwarded a draft of the ordinance to the attorneys for the town and the Wisconsin Towns Association to review before it is voted on next month. He adds that one of the ordinance’s more controversial elements involving a minimum six-day stay for rentals has been removed.
