Town Officials Workshops

Town Officials Workshops – May 2015

Following the spring elections in odd numbered years, UW-Extension’s Local Government Center working in conjunction with the Wisconsin Towns Association coordinates and delivers a series of day-long programs designed to help orient both new and continuing town officials.

 

In May 2015, topics included powers and duties of town officials, Open Meetings Law, effective meetings and public involvement, town road funding and operations, ethics and conflicts of interest, enforcement of ordinances hot topics, budget update, and leadership in town government. Workshops were held around the state in Stevens Point, Green Bay, Brookfield, Cable, Minocqua, Wabeno, DeForest, Richland Center, Rice Lake, Eau Claire, and Tomah.

Town officials who attended these workshops in past years have commented:

  • “I intend to use this starting tonight – my first meeting as chair.”
  • “It will help tremendously in everyday affairs.”
  • “Without this session I would have struggled for some time.”
  • “The workshop will help me better serve the people – and stay out of trouble.”
  • “Keep doing this.”
