Dodge County Board To Discuss COVID-19 Emergency Declaration

(Juneau) The Dodge County Board will discuss the county’s COVID-19 emergency declaration at their next meeting. The board adopted the resolution last March which, among other things, expedites the use of resources to protect the public from the impact and spread of the virus. The declaration also allows supervisors to attend meetings virtually. The emergency declaration has been discussed during recent county board executive committee meetings, with supervisors debating whether to continue it or terminate it. During yesterday’s meeting, Supervisor Jeff Schmitt said he wants the resolution subjected to the discussion of the full county board. The county board can either make amendments to the resolution, keep it in place or end it. Their next meeting is on March 16th.
