GREEN BAY (WFRV) The Brown County Board of Supervisors has called an emergency meeting for Tuesday to discuss options for a proposal to expand the current board.

The Board has voted three times since May to expand from 26 to 29 supervisors. The supervisors say an expansion is needed in order to represent all of the county's residents. The board cites population expansion over the last ten years for the reason.

Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach disagrees with the expansion and has vetoed the previous votes by the board. Streckenbach feels an expansion would be too expensive for taxpayers.

County Board Chairman Guy Zima ordered the emergency meeting in order to discuss another expansion vote.

The Board needs to come to an agreement with Streckenbach by November 22 in order to schedule a spring primary election for the three new seats.
