Greetings, Morgan! If you have news to share, you can contact me at

Some final finishing touches are being put into place in the new town hall building, which really has turned out to be an outstanding facility. With the new town hall project basically complete, the town board accepted the resignation of town clerk Char Borghese at the March 12 town board meeting.

Char had served in that position for the past seven years and three months and was an integral part of the entire town hall construction project. When her resignation was accepted, Char happily shared that this is her second opportunity to retire, and she will continue to be an active community member.

The interim town clerk will be Julie Belongia, a resident of Morgan for over 25 years. Julie is looking forward to meeting town residents in this role and will tackle new challenges with enthusiasm. She earned a degree in Business Management and operated her own business for 19 years. Julie raised her family in Morgan and thinks it’s a great place to live.

The annual town meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 17, at 7:30 p.m. Did you know that you can hear reports from the assessor, building inspector, Oconto Falls Area Joint Ambulance service representative, Green Valley-Morgan Fire Department chief, as well as a report on town finances, all at the annual meeting? There will also be an address by the town chairperson and a public comment period. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Please remember to vote in the spring election on Tuesday, April 3, with polls open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. For voting, please enter the town hall through the doors located on the east side of the new building. The ballot will include contests for Oconto County Board supervisor, as well as justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, school board and a statewide referendum question regarding the elimination of the state treasurer.

Thank you to all the poll workers who braved the wintry weather to work at the Feb. 20 primary election.

The next regular town board meeting will be Monday, April 9, at 7 p.m.
