Kenosha County Board expects to go paperless

The Kenosha County Board is expecting to go paperless by next month, an effort that is being promoted by its new chairman.

Ed Kubicki said one of the first things he would like to see happen in the new term is for the board to run more efficiently and take advantage of the technology that will keep supervisors connected.

The new board was seated Tuesday and supervisors received committee assignments Thursday. While not a mandate, he said the board would see a savings in costs for printing, postage and labor.
