Transition For New Economic Development Organization On Track

The transition director for the new organization that will come out of an affiliation between the Fond du Lac County Economic Development Corporation and the Fond du Lac Area Association of Commerce says they are well along in the process. David Omachinski assured the County Board Tuesday night they will have the CEO for the new organization and the organization itself in place by the middle of summer. He says they hired a recruiting firm and got a surprising number of CEO candidates that are interested in the Fond du Lac region. Some supervisors expressed concerns about representation on the board of directors for the new organization especially for the outlying communities. County Executive Al Buechel says the new organization will represent economic development interests of the entire County. He told supervisors the current steering committee for the transition has eight members and only one is from the City of Fond du Lac.
