Jefferson County asks residents to define the future of the county

The Jefferson County Board of Supervisors has scheduled four public meetings to garner residents’ feedback on the future of the county, after updating the county’s strategic plan. The plan’s first goal: “Jefferson County is committed to sustainable growth that improves the lives of our residents and other stakeholders and creates a more positive fiscal environment.”

The county also announced that it will be holding special public meetings on the county’s Comprehensive Plan and its Agricultural Preservation and Land-Use Plan. Those meetings, all of which will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., will begin with a formal presentation at 6 sharp, with county staff on hand afterward to answer questions from the public. The meetings will be held:

  • Monday, June 24, at the Bank of Lake Mills, 400 Bernard St., in Watertown.
  • Wednesday, June 26, at the Palmyra-Eagle High School.
  • Wednesday, July 10, at the Dwight Foster Public Library in Fort Atkinson.
  • Thursday, July 11, at the Lake Mills Municipal Building.
