Four new members sought for five-person county drainage board in Wisconsin
A Rock County Board committee is seeking to replace four of the five members on the Rock County Drainage Board, an agency that has had its share of controversy in recent years.
Drainage boards are organized to drain lands for agricultural or other purposes, and each drainage district within a board’s jurisdiction can have different land use or property owner rights, according to a state handbook. To be eligible to serve on the drainage board, a person must own property within one of seven drainage districts in Rock County. Appointees will serve terms of one, three, four or five years, according to the release. Applications are available on the Rock County website, or at the county planning and development office. The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 30. | READ MORE
