Grant County Board Votes Not to Change Government

LANCASTER, WI (Ben Caxton) — The Grant County board thinks the current form of government in the county is working just fine. The supervisors heard a two-hour presentation on different forms of county government that might be an option at a special meeting Tuesday night. The focus of the presentation was on county government with a county administrator, or with an administrative coordinator. Outreach Manager from the Wisconsin Counties Association Jon Hochkammer was on hand to answer questions. Hochkammer pointed out that the current trend in county government in Wisconsin is going toward having a county administrator. Twenty-eight counties in the state have a county administrator. He said he can think of only four counties in the state that have Grant County’s form of government where the county clerk holds the title of administrative coordinator but has no authority and receives no additional compensation for that title. The presentation apparently had little influence on supervisors, as they voted 13 to 4 not to change a thing.
