County supervisors will present six priorities during the meeting, laying out the county’s legislative agenda for 2019.

Supervisors will talk about the need for a third Dunn County judge and more assistant district attorneys, the need for increased child welfare funding, increasing the Medicaid reimbursement rate, the need for a change to the levy limit law, a local water quality initiative and the need to fund rural broadband development, Miller said.

Monday’s meeting is part of the county’s broader effort to communicate with lawmakers about local priorities, Miller said.
