Congratulations to all the volunteers recognized at the banquet!

There are aspects of a community that make it strong, like quality education, local economy, and safe neighborhoods. I also believe that a strong community has strong volunteers who help create a positive environment. Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the 47th Brown County Health and Human Services Department Volunteer Recognition Dinner. Congratulations to all those who were recognized for their commitments and dedication to serving the community!

General information

Agriculture Brown County has an excellent agriculture production area and agribusiness is of tremendous importance to the community. Dairying is the largest income generator, although canning, cash crops, and other livestock also contribute substantially to the income in this area. County Courthouse In 1992, Brown County completed a ten million dollar project to restore and refurbish its courthouse. At the time it was originally dedicated in 1911, the newly built courthouse in Green Bay, Wisconsin was described by the newspapers as being "unsurpassed in the State". Education Brown County offers higher education opportunities at three major institutions: The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, St. Norbert College and Northeastern Wisconsin Technical College. Industries Brown County is composed of 13 townships, nine villages and two cities, of which Green Bay is the largest. It is one of the most progressive and rapidly growing cities in Wisconsin while still retaining some of the most beautiful and charming residential suburbs. The largest employer in Brown County is the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin: Business/Development Corp. Our community is home to two of the largest insurance companies in the State of Wisconsin. The principal industry of Green Bay is that of paper-making. The city has four large paper mills, three pulp mills and four paper-converting companies. These mills specialize in tissue papers, such as toilet paper, towels, napkins and tablecloths, with some wrapping and printing papers, and in chipboard for the manufacture of boxes, all of which are used throughout the nation. Green Bay is the largest cheese processing, concentrating and shipping center in the U.S. Green Bay is home base for one of the nation's most recognized environmental quality paper converters and recycling companies. In fact, the recycling industry is fast becoming a sizable economic force in new jobs: paper, plastics, and wood products are all being recycled/processed locally. Brown County is also the home of an internationally recognized manufacturer of custom log homes. Other important industries are furniture factories, automobile parts plants, cold storage plants, dairy products plants, fisheries, meat processing, machinery production, transportation and national communications are all located here within. Green Bay Packers Green Bay holds the distinction for being nicknamed "Titletown, U.S.A." because of their domination of professional football throughout the 1960's. Packer football has been synonymous with leadership, talent, and winning. Thanks to the likes of Lombardi, Starr, Taylor, Davis, Nitschke, and numerous others who are today, enshrined in the Pro-Football Hall of Fame. The Green Bay Packers have captured the National Football League Championship on 14 occasions including the Super Bowl I, II, ###II and XLV.

Zoo, The National Railroad Museum, the Packer Football Hall of Fame, Bay Beach Amusement Park, Weidner Center for the Performing Arts, the Green Bay Community Theatre, the Neville Public Museum, Hazelwood Historical House Museum, and others too numerous to mention. Brown County also operates an 18-hole Golf Course, rated one of the best in Wisconsin! The Fox River is once again becoming a major attraction for water sports, sport fishing and walleye hatchery. Much of the success is due to the improvement of the water's quality and waterfront development/planning. Transportation The Green Bay area is the transportation hub of Northeastern Wisconsin. Our highway system has the only complete beltline in Wisconsin. Together with rail and port facilities, there is excellent cargo service provided by Wisconsin Central. Many trucking firms haul cargo out of Green Bay, with some of the nations largest having headquarters or terminals located within our boundaries. Brown County has one of the finest harbors on the Great Lakes, and the Port of Green Bay is an international port for domestic and foreign trade. Ocean vessels also call at the Port of Green Bay on a regular basis. The marine tonnage entering the harbor has annually averaged more than 143 ships and 1,637,776 tons. Green Bay-Austin Straubel International Airport is owned by Brown County and was named in honor of Lt. Col. Austin Straubel, a Green Bay native, killed in action while serving in the U.S. Air Corps in the South Pacific in 1942. Austin Straubel International Airport is the third largest airport in the State of Wisconsin and has title to 1,500 acres.
