8-23-13 fdl county board rejects request to help fund promotional book

The Fond du Lac County  Board has rejected a request to help fund the reprinting of a booklet designed  to promote the tiny communities in Fond du lac County that are part of what’s known as the Holyland and to promote the region’s rich history.   The board voted 15 to eight in favor of appropriating $2500 for a reprint of the book Breaking Bread in the Holyland, two votes short of the two thirds majority needed for passage.  County Board chairman Marty Farrell  says the cost to reprint the 46 page book would have been split between Fond du lac and Calumet counties and the books would have been made available to the public for free.
