Sheriff’s office study before county board

December 18, 2018 GMT

JUNEAU -- When the Dodge County board meets Tuesday night supervisors will have their opportunity to approve a resolution authorizing a general fund transfer of $55,000 and, subsequently, an agreement with a California-based consulting firm to conduct an operational and financial review of the sheriff’s office.

Only $30,000 is available from the sheriff’s budget leaving the remainder of the cost to use the Matrix Consulting Group to come from the county’s general fund.

If passed Tuesday, the consulting group would be tasked with evaluating the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office organization, staffing, operations, costs and analyzing management systems. The group is scheduled to begin in January and bring a final report to the Dodge County Board in August 2019.

In other business, county supervisors will likely approve Justin Reynolds, as Dodge County’s new information technology director at a beginning annual salary equivalent to $47.92 per hour including benefits as approved by the Human Resources and Labor Negotiations Committee, including 15 days of paid vacation for the use during the first year of employment.

The board will also act on a resolution to authorize the transfer of the Youth Building to the Dodge County Fair Association. The Dodge County Building Committee has considered the benefits of transferring the Youth Building to the fair association. If the transfer is approved, the fair association would control, operate and maintain all of the buildings on the Dodge County Fairgrounds.

Board supervisors will also hear presentations Tuesday night by Bill Ehlenbeck, director of the county’s land resources and parks committee, on the Gold Star Memorial Trail; and Marie Witzel, 4-H/Youth development educator, on the 4-H Key Award recipients, who are Andrew Boschert, Cassandra Luedtke, Katrina Pokorny and Natalie Siedschlag.

The Dodge County Board of Supervisors will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday on the fourth floor of the administration building, 127 E. Oak St., Juneau.
