Board of Supervisors Home
The Dane County Board of Supervisors is a body of government comprised of 37 elected supervisors from each of the districts in the county. The Board acts similarly to the state legislature in that it is the policy-making body of the County government.
As Dane County continues to monitor and takes action to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 virus, the County Board will be evaluating the need for committee and board meetings. Standing committees include:
· Personnel and Finance Committee
· Public Protection and Judiciary Committee
· Public Works and Transportation Committee
· Health and Human Needs
· Environment Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee
· Zoning and Land Regulation Committee
· Executive Committee
Public Health Madison and Dane County advises that the best way to decrease exposure to viruses is to limit the amount of contact with others.
The County Board will be voted at their 3/19 to make changes so committees are able to meet remotely. Committee agendas can be found here: https://dane.legistar.com/, and will contain information for the public to participate remotely.
The committees of the Board (listed above) will also require any members of the public interested in registering to speak to the committee, to complete a registration form 30 minutes before the start of the meeting. The link to the form can be found on the committee agendas at: https://dane.legistar.com.
If you would like to contact the County Board as a whole the email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
County Board Staff can also be reached at: 608-266-5758.
