Grothman On Renaming Of FDL Post Office
Congressman Glenn Grothman played a key role in getting the Fond du Lac Post Office renamed after native son and World War II hero Lt. Colonel James “Maggie” Megellas (muh-JELL-us). Grothman helped sponsor the legislation for the renaming. He wasn’t able to be at the dedication ceremony this past week because Congress was taking a vote, but sent a representative to make some remarks. Grothman says if anyone deserves to have a post office named after them, Megellas certainly does.
FDL DA Office Working To Go Paperless
Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney says his office is working on going to a paperless system. He says it’s something going on all over the state. He says it took his office a lot longer because vendors had difficulty with it. He says once it’s implemented it should speed things up and make things more efficient. He says it’s close to up and running which will allow them to charge cases quicker. He says the hope is cases are charged quicker, move through the courts quicker, and then they can work on improving some inefficiencies in the court.
