September 19 Agenda and previous minutes
Visit the County Board Agenda and Minutes page for a review of this week’s agenda and the minutes from the last meeting. Look for a longer update on other county happenings later this week.
City of Madison
On September 17, 2019 the Madison Common Council passed a resolution, which was a combination of two different resolutions addressing the future activities at Truax Base. Last week city staff released a report assessing the Draft F35 EIS.
The resolution process for the Dane County Board of Supervisors is as such: a resolution is introduced during the Announcements portion of an official County Board meeting and Supervisors have the opportunity to sign on to the resolution in support. It is then referred to committees for further examination and approval, and then finally goes back to the full County Board for approval from the whole. The whole process can take at least two weeks, and often longer, depending on the county meetings schedule. In order to ensure the statement is included in the public record by the 9/27/2019 deadline, Supervisors will have the opportunity to optionally sign on to a Letter in Opposition written by Supervisor Paul Rusk, whose district includes the area surrounding the Dane County Regional Airport and Truax field. I intend to add my name to this letter. Click on the link above to view the letter.
