Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/29/2015

The Wisconsin Natural Resources board elected to retain its current officers for 2015. During the group's monthly meeting in Madison on Wednesday, the board re-elected Preston Cole of Milwaukee as chair, Terry Hilgenberg of Shawano as vice chair and Greg Kazmierski of Pewaukee as secretary.

Cole is Director of Operations for the City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works. He is a member of the "Milwaukee Green Team," where he and his colleagues seek to create a more sustainable Milwaukee through stormwater reduction practices, energy conservation programs, waste reduction initiatives, all while creating green jobs. Cole was appointed to the board in 2007 and reappointed in 2013.

Hilgenberg is a realtor and president of Coldwell Banker Hilgenberg Realtors in Shawano. He has been in the real estate business since 1975 specializing in commercial real estate in Green Bay, and is a partner in Hilgenberg & Associates, Inc., an investment and development real estate company.

Kazmierski grew up on a dairy farm in rural Mukwonago, which inspired his appreciation of Wisconsin's natural resources.

The DNR sets policy for the Department of Natural Resources and exercises authority and responsibility in accordance with governing state laws. Board members are appointed to six-year terms by the governor with the advice and consent of the Wisconsin Senate.
