KRONENWETTER, Wis. (WSAU) - Kronenwetter and Weston officials have agreed to continue pursuing public works partnerships despite Kronenwetter declining to hire Weston's public works director.

That vote come Monday night at the Kronenwetter village board meeting. The village will instead hire their own person to replace the vacant position. Kronenwetter administrator Richard Downey says further cooperation is not out of the question. "They've got a lot of seasoned employees over there that we might be able to use on contract work."

Weston administrator Dan Guild says his staff are always working to try and find cost savings. "Hopefully this is a conversation that we can build on and expand into other partnerships in the future." The two villages already share a building inspector, and have been working together to rewrite their zoning ordinances.
