Almost all the city of New Holstein citizens who spoke at last Wednesday’s public hearing on the proposed consolidation of the Police Department into the Calumet County Sheriff’s Office voiced opposition and/or concerns with the plan.
Approximately 18 citizens spoke during the 2-1/2 hour hearing held in the emptied truck bays of the New Holstein Fire Station so that more people could attend. Chairs were set up with social distancing in mind and everyone in attendance wore masks and had their temperatures checked upon arriving. Counting Common Council members and city officials present, about 100 people filled the Fire Station.
Applause was given following comments from each resident during the hearing which became both emotional and tense at times.
