Tom Coulter: Hour 1:22:50
Yeah, I’d just like to suggest that in the name of fairness we have an expert with the opposite point of view. Give him 20 minutes, or her 20 minutes, too.

Dan Hansen: What we’ll do is vote on it up or down. I’m not gonna sit through another 20-minute presentation. That’s…We’ve put a lot of time into this already, we’re gonna go forward with it like that. I think we’ll ask staff to put together a resolution and we’ll just vote on it. What do you think? Ed do you have an opinion?

Ed Schactner: I guess in all fairness I kind of agree with Tom but on the opposite position, but, um, I think there’s quite a few county board members that have heard one side, and if they want other on the negative side, I think we could probably dig into that, but, um, I’ll just, I’ll make a motion that we, recommend that we have a resolution before our next Committee regular meeting, and then we’ll vote on it at that time whether we want to bring it before the county board.
Resolution passed: 3-1.

Carbon tax— The initial hour and 15 minutes of the meeting were largely consumed with public comments and an “expert” presentation advocating a carbon tax on energy to discourage CO2 emissions. This is supposed to alleviate the looming threat of human caused global warming. I suggested that we provide equal time to an expert from the counter point of view. That was immediately dismissed by Chair Dan Hansen. I expect to see a resolution presented at the Sept. 19th meeting advocating for a carbon tax. This issue distracted from more immediate county business and I expect it will continue to do so for some time.

Livestock Siting Regs— A resolution to allow counties more authority over livestock siting regulations was proposed. The current state statutes provide for uniform guidance over the whole state. Since farms operate across county lines, it seems an unreasonable to add multiple, and potentially conflicting, compliance burden on farmers. It would also add redundant bureaucratic tax burden to counties for staff to administer. Agriculture is one of the largest economic contributors to the Wisconsin economy. That resolution was tabled until our February meeting.

County Zoning Revision— This matter was deleted from the agenda before the meeting. Some revisions were discussed and the staff is going to draft some new language for some provisions. It will be presented at our Sept 19th meeting.
