April 13 at Pontiac Convention Center: Annual fish and game rule hearing

JANESVILLE – Rock County sportsmen and women are reminded that the Department of Natural Resources’ spring conservation hearing on Monday evening, April 13, has moved to a new location.

The hearing, scheduled for 7:00 p.m. will be held at the Pontiac Convention Center, 2809 N. Pontiac Dr., Janesville. The annual gathering had been previously held at the Janesville Moose Lodge.

Held simultaneously in each Wisconsin county, the hearings give residents their annual opportunity to vote on DNR proposed fish and wildlife management rule changes. Everyone will be given an opportunity to comment on the proposals, but individuals are limited to three minutes for each proposal.

The hearings are held prior to the Wisconsin Conservation Congress county meetings. The Congress, a citizen group created by the Legislature, serves as an independent organization to advise DNR on hunting, fishing and environmental matters. It is made-up of five delegates from each of Wisconsin’s 72 counties. Delegates will be elected at the Congress meeting.
