The Town Board passed 2 ordinances at its meeting on December 3, 2019. One was routine, allowing the town to use a more up to date records retention and destruction policy, and allowing some records to be destroyed without prior notification to the Wisconsin State Historical Society. The other was more substantive. It sets a referendum, to be voted on in April, on whether the town clerk and treasurer positions should be changed from elective positions to appointive positions. This matters, because as things currently sit, only an elector of the township can serve in either position. The town came close to having no clerk in April this year, when the previous clerk retired, and no one ran to take her place. The board seeks to prevent this problem from recurring. Both ordinances can be read and reviewed in the Ordinance section of this website.
