Chippewa County (WQOW) – Chippewa County officials want the public’s input to find out what issues need to be addressed in a new strategic plan.
The county will hold listening sessions where community members can voice their ideas to officials.
Chippewa County wants to hear what the public thinks is going well and should continue, and what is not going well and needs changing.
The county’s last strategic plan was created eight years ago, but moving forward, they want to update the plan every two years.
Chippewa County Administrator Randy Scholz said the change will allow the county board to better accommodate citizen needs.
“Things change. I mean, there are things that can change pretty rapidly. The economy can change,” said Scholz. “So, I think doing it every two years allows us to not spend so much time at one time doing it and it keeps it updated.”
The first of the sessions was at Cadott High School on Monday.
The rest of the sessions are as follows. Each event is from 6 to 8 p.m.
August 14 at New Auburn Village Hall
August 19 at Cornell City Hall
August 26 at Stanley Sunset Homes, community room 124
August 27 at the Chippewa Falls Courthouse, room 302
