The Langlade County Board of Supervisors met for their monthly meeting Tuesday morning. The board heard a presentation from a representative of Robert W. Baird & Co. regarding the county's desire for the sale of approximately $1,075,000 in general obligation refunding bonds. The county should save around $25,000 by doing this. Finance Director Gary Olsen explained that the interest rates would decrease to 1.55% by doing this. He says the decision was an easy one as they would be saving money without extending the payment schedule.
Carol Balwat resigned from the libary board, citing a staute with the board that you can't serve on two governing bodies and still be on. Balwat is on the county board and city council.
