The Buffalo County Board has agreed to dissolve the county's consolidated land resources department and return zoning and land conservation functions back to separate departments.
While the board was in agreement to dissolve a two-year merger of zoning and conservation, supervisors were divided over a plan-of-action in how and when to go about doing it.
The county board voted 7 to 6 in favor of delaying formal action on the changes until staffing and funding are in place.
An amendment authorized the zoning committee to proceed with filling positions of zoning administrator, zoning technician and zoning administrative assistant.
But it called for the new Land Conservation & Resource Management Committee to draft a plan detailing administrative structure and funding of its new department for the county board to take a look at first.
