In a county board meeting held remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the 2020-2022 term of Dane County Board Supervisors were sworn in.
Supervisor Analiese Eicher (District 3 – Sun Prairie) was elected County Board Chair, and has now named appointments to the board’s seven standing committees and four other committees.
“Much of the work of the County Board is done by the standing committees, with the full Board acting on committee recommendations,” said Chair Eicher. “This is a talented group of new and returning board members, and I am confident the work of each committee will reflect their priorities and dedication to the residents of Dane County in these challenging times.”
These committees will soon be holding their first meetings, which will be done remotely. Agendas and minutes for these meetings can be found at https://dane.legistar.com. Election of officers will take place at each of the committee’s first meetings.
