Lake County elected officials sworn in; Wollmann re-elected Commission Chair

The Lake County Commission held its first meeting of 2023 on Tuesday.  Before the meeting, four county elected officials took their oaths of office.  Commissioners Kelli Wollmann and Corey Johnke, along with Register of Deeds Shirley Ebsen and Sheriff Tim Walburg were all sworn in by Circuit Judge Pat Pardy.  Commissioners re-elected Kelli Wollmann to serve as Chair of the Commission and elected Dennis Slaughter as Vice-Chair for this year. 

Also during Tuesday’s meeting, commissioners approved their meeting dates and times for the year, which is the first and third Tuesdays at 9:00 a.m., with one exception this year and that’s in July.  The July 4th holiday is on the first Tuesday of the month, so commissioners will meet that Thursday, July 6th instead.  The commission also approved county employees’ salaries for 2023, along with the 2023 board appointments, department liaisons, and other appointments during Tuesday’s meeting.

County commissioners approved one personnel item also during Tuesday’s meeting.  Commissioners approved the hiring of Izaak Hoey as a full-time Deputy Sheriff at a rate of $22.35 an hour.  Hoey’s hiring is effective June 12th because he is in the military and will be in training for several months.
