Kewaunee County looks to rescind emergency resolution

Kewaunee County will no longer be operating under a public health emergency if it is approved by the Board of Supervisors later this month.


The Kewaunee County Executive Committee unanimously approved the motion during its meeting on July 5th. The county has been operating under a public health emergency order since March  17th, 2020. Subsequent emergency orders included closing the county’s offices for a period of time, changing the rules regarding emergency sick leave and Wisconsin FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act), deferring revolving loan payments, and approving videoconferencing and teleconferencing for committee and board meetings.  


With the vaccinations widely available and other municipalities rescinding their emergencies, Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt said during Monday’s meeting it no longer needed to keep theirs.

The final decision rescinding the public health emergency will take place at the Kewaunee County Board of Supervisors meeting on July 20th. The executive committee also discussed applying for additional funds through the state’s broadband expansion grant program. The full meeting can be viewed here.
