FDL County Board Approves 2020 Budget; Honors Three Retiring Employees

The Fond du Lac County Board unanimously approved the
2020 County Budget and Five-year capital improvement plan at its meeting
Tuesday night. The board voted 24-0 to pass both resolutions. The budget is for
$136 million and includes an operating levy of $513-thousand dollars. The
spending plan also includes a levy increase of $1.5 million to $45.9 million in

for nine years and is retiring as an Account Clerk with the County Treasurers
Office. The board also recognized Sue McManus, who is retiring as Jail Health
