The Walworth County Commission held a regular meeting on Tuesday (Dec. 6th).

Master Transportation Plan
Commissioner Schilling commented on his disappointment in the turnout at the recent meeting regarding the Master Transportation Plan for Walworth County.
Walworth County Auditor Deb Kahl added that without the public’s input, decisions will be made by the State and an appointed committee.
Also at Tuesday’s meeting, the commission voted to give the Auditor permission to advertise for budget supplements, which will then be approved at the board’s final meeting in December. Auditor Kahl said this is necessary so that no funds start the new year with a negative balance.
A motion passed on the American Rescue Plan funds. Commissioner Duane Mohr read the Resolution.
After an executive session, the commissioners passed a motion to authorize advertisement for a full-time administrative assistant in the State’s Attorney’s office.
