(Eau Claire, WI) — There is a push for an ethics commission for the Eau Claire County Board. Supervisor Mark Beckfield says he wants an independent panel to be able to look into issues on the county board without “bias or political ideology.” He is pushing the idea after a change on how the county adopted its latest budget, he says supervisors were shut-out from asking questions. Supervisor Jerry Wilkie says an ethics commission could also help get some answers about the years-long investigation into the county’s Department of Human Services and the million-dollar ‘accounting error’ that started the whole thing.
