STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAU) - Portage County’s new Highway Commissioner knows the area. County Executive Patty Dreier says her choice for Highway Commissioner is Nathan Check.
The Portage County Board of Supervisors still has to confirm the appointment September 17th, but Dreier is confident the present Mequon City Engineer and Director of Public Works will be approved.
Check has ten years of experience, and is expected to start October 15th.
Check is moving back where his family roots are. That’s exactly what caused the vacancy in the first place, as former Highway Commissioner Brian Kelley took a similar position closer to his family in Chippewa County in early July.
