Administrator Pogge-Weaver addressed the suggestion that the County hold a special election on November 5th to ask the question of whether the Treasurer position should remain an elected position or be changed to an appointed position.  He pointed out that the Cities of Appleton and Benson as well as the KMS and Benson School Districts may be holding special elections on November 5th so the County could potentially recapture some of the cost of the election which would bring the cost to approximately $6000 to add the question to the November ballot.
08-06-13-11 Commissioner Hendrickx moved and Commissioner Peterson seconded to form a sub-committee of Commissioner Fox and Commissioner Rudningen to meet with the current Treasurer, Ron Vadnais, and bring a recommendation to the full board of whether to place on the November ballot the question of possibly moving the County Treasurer from an elected position to an appointed position.
