Meeting Feb 27

Looks like a full agenda for next Tuesday's meeting.

Here are some points to highlight:

*County Executive's Appointments:
EastWisconsin Counties Railroad Consortium - Supervisor Jef Hall

I'm excited about this appointment.

**Report On Countywide Phone System Upgrade - Patty Francour, Information Systems Department Director**
This project comes through the IS Committee that I am on

*Reducing the Size of theWinnebago County Board of Supervisors - Presentation by Chairman David Albrecht
I do not know what this presentation will be about, as last I heard the committee voted for 28 but did not make and organization reccomendations. Has Chair Albrecht come up with them himself?

RESOLUTION NO. 158-22007: Amend Section 24.12 of the Rules of theWinnebago County Board of Supervisors (Information Systems Committee)
Submitted by:
DAVID ALBRECHT, DIST. #11 COUNTY BOARD SUPERVISOR

Now, I don't get this. The IS Committee is supposed to be voting on this tonight, yet it is already submitted to the full county board by Chair Albrecht? Why take any action at the committee level? I stand behind my previous statements that now is not the time to lessen citizen involvement.

RESOLUTION NO. 166-22007: Name County Building at Sunnyview Complex the Paul W. Stevenson Building
Submitted by:
UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN EDUCATION,
EXTENSION & AGRICULTURE COMMITTEE
PARKS & RECREATION COMMITTEE
FACILITIES & PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE

I think that it is great to name buildings after people who worked in goverment and championed causes. It give a sense of history and connection.


RESOLUTION NO. 168-22007: Create a position of Confidential Secretary (Paralegal) on the District Attorney’s Office Table of Organization
Submitted by:
PERSONNEL & FINANCE COMMITTEE

This will be an employee to help out with domestic violence related issues.

ORDINANCE NO. 170-22007: Amend Section 2.01 of the General Code of Winnebago County
Submitted by:
JUDICIARY & PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE

This is the new map for 36 board members.

Dear Jef :
Should the whole building be named or just a wing of the building- the board voted to approve trying to get sponsorships of various buildings within the Parks system to generate revenue.

Does the "Pepsi Paul Stevenson Expo Center" sound right to you.


So if agree with me to honoring Paul Stevenson by naming somethign for him but not the whole Expo Center Building contact me and also your County Board supervisor and tell him/her how you feel about the issue.

Also the 4-H and Parks Department are housed in the Coughlin Building not the Expo Building.

Name a room in the Coughlin Building in honor of Paul Stevenson.

Since Mr. Albrecht picked the 28 out of a hat with no consideration of committee structure (discusion was not allowed), it will be interesting to see what he alone has come up with.

Jeff,

thanks for standing up for citizens on committees....as far as I'm concerned the committees should be made up of at least 50% citizens

I'll be calling Supervisor Barker about this
