History & Purpose
The Kenosha County Department of Human Services and the Kenosha County Human Services Board were created by Kenosha County Board of Supervisors Policy Resolution #7 (November 14, 1995) in accordance with Section 46.23 of the Wisconsin Statutes. The Human Services Board is intended to be a policy-making body only, determining the broad outlines and principles governing the administration of programs relating to the Department of Human Services.
Note: The Mental Health/Alcohol and Other Drugs Services Committee is a standing committee of the Human Services Board. Members are appointed by the Human Services Board.
Members & Terms
In accordance with Policy Resolution #7, the Human Services Board shall be composed of 9 members, 5 of which shall be County Board Supervisors. At least one member shall be an individual who receives, or has received, human services or is a family member of such individual. The remainder shall be consumers of services or citizens-at-large. No public or private providers of services may be appointed to the board.
The Operating Policies for the Kenosha County Human Services Board require that 1 of the 5 County Board Supervisors, appointed to the Human Services Board, be a member of the Human Services Committee. Although appropriate, this provision is not required by Section 46.23 of the Wisconsin Statutes or Policy Resolution #7.
The County Executive appoints members to the Human Services Board subject to confirmation by the County Board. Members serve staggered 3-year terms and received no compensation.
