The Oneida County Board of Supervisors placed a non-binding referendum question on the November ballot:

"After performing their due diligence, should Oneida County allow leasing of County owned lands in the Town of Lynne for the purpose of metallic mineral exploration, prospecting, bulk sampling and mining?"

The University of Wisconsin Extension - Oneida County and the independent, non-profit Oneida County Economic Development Corporation are collaborating to provide expert and research-based information so people will understand the issues and vote with confidence in November.

Please view the Events tab at the link below for a list of public forums in Tomahawk on 10/11, Sugar Camp 10/18 and Minocqua 10/27.

Please consider attending one of these forums if you would like to gain a better understanding before voting on this referendum question next month.
