Dodge County Board Postpones Vote On Its Strategic Plan

(Juneau) The Dodge County Board Tuesday night voted to postpone action on its strategic plan. The county’s Executive Committee last year identified a need to establish a plan to guide the board’s policy and decision-making process. Several supervisors held meetings between May of 2021 and March of this year to draft a strategic plan document including a mission statement, vision, and values.  

Supervisor Jeff Breselow took issue with the values which the plan identified as respect, honesty, integrity, and trustworthiness. He made a motion to delay adopting the plan until those values were better represented by the county board.

“The board has not been able to exemplify those core values,” says Breselow. “Until we can do that, I don’t think we should undertake such a project like this.” 

Supervisor Lisa Derr did not support the motion to delay. She says the plan is set to be reviewed quarterly which gives them several months to continue to exhibit respect. 

The motion was approved which delayed the vote until the board’s January meeting.  

There are 11 key strategies outlined by the plan. They include coordinating cooperation of fire and EMS services county-wide and regionally; deploy a county-wide, affordable fiber-optic broadband coverage; support childcare, daycare availability; and address the county’s housing supply and demand.
