“Wisconsin’s Most Innovative Local Governments: Green Tier Legacy Communities” will be the focus when Curt Witynski, assistant director of the League of Wisconsin Municipalities, speaks at the Climate Change Coalition of Door County’s November program on Nov. 9. Witynski’s talk will begin at 7 pm in the City of Sturgeon Bay Council Chambers on the second floor of City Hall, 421 Michigan St. The program is free and open to the public.
The Green Tier Legacy Communities program is an initiative of the state Department of Natural Resources, 1000 Friends of Wisconsin, the League of Wisconsin Municipalities and other organizations, as well as participating cities and villages, to foster sustainability practices and sound water resource management. Appleton, Fitchburg, Bayfield, Middleton and Weston have already joined the program.
Witynski’s primary responsibility at the League of Wisconsin Municipalities is to represent the interests of Wisconsin cities and villages in the state capitol. He served as the league’s legal counsel for eight years before becoming assistant director. Witynski writes the Legislative Bulletin and Capitol Buzz for municipal officials when the legislature is in session. He has given presentations and written numerous articles on many aspects of municipal law and has co-authored several guidebooks for local officials published by the league.
