A rule that supervisors must be present at meetings to have their vote counted will be discussed at Tuesday's Kewaunee County Board meeting. Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt says many municipalities have adjusted their rules to allow for voting virtually since the onset of the pandemic. Since many meetings have been held remotely in the past year, a clarification of what "present" means needs to be decided.
Feldt believes that physical attendance is preferred, but modern technology allows for the exchange of ideas and ultimately voting. According to Feldt, an advisory vote may occur on defining “present”, but the board will take no formal action during Tuesday's meeting. The Kewaunee County Board will also be nominating Steven Agamaite to fill the District 3 seat vacated by Chuck Wagner earlier this summer. The meeting will begin at 6 pm at the Kewaunee County Administrative Center.
