Green County board

On Tuesday, May 12, the Green County Board of Supervisors:

• Passed a resolution to request the state restore more than $59 million in state funding for human services. Green County Human Services Director Greg Holcomb said the projected cuts in Gov. Jim Doyle's budget would cause the county to lose about $400,000 for each of the next two years. Holcomb said the cuts would affect funding for child abuse and the county's ability to assess income assistance.

• Passed a resolution, 24-5, to oppose changes to the Prevailing Wage Law. Joe Cousin, Allen Benzschawel, Mike Furgal, Randy Iverson and Sue Disch voted against the resolution. Cousin said he voted against the resolution to protect workers.

• Rezoned a parcel of land in Exeter township residential to agricultural.

• Changed the wording of the Pleasant View Committee to say it will include five Green County Board Supervisors rather than "shall" include at least two board supervisors. The change reflects only a change in how the committee description is worded.

• Heard the annual report from the University of Wisconsin-Extension.
