Resident calls for removal of Land and Water Committee chair

Tempers flared in the public comment portion of Tuesday’s Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Committee meeting. Resident Nancy Utesch called for Kewaunee County Board member and dairy farmer Aaron Augustian to either resign or be removed from his seat after allegedly lying about an email inviting USDA scientist Tucker Burch to speak to the county. Burch recently co-authored several field studies on well contamination in Kewaunee County and spoke at an event hosted by Door County Environmental Council and Kewaunee CARES in Sturgeon Bay in March. Things got testy as the three-minute limit was about to be reached during public comment.

Other residents used public comment to ask the committee to use other periods of the meeting to address their concerns. Kewaunee County Conservationist Davina Bonness emphasized the importance of residents participating in their latest well-testing efforts, especially in the Village of Casco where nitrates concerns have dominated the conversations at the county, town, and village levels.
