80 Year Old Bikes 80 Miles

County Welcomes Kevin Solway As Information Services Director

“I think this is very exceptional for the county,” declared Supervisor Ken Keller after Marinette County Board was formally informed by Corporation Counsel Gale Mattison that the administrative team has chosen former Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Kevin Solway to head the county’s Information Services (IS) Department.

Keller’s sentiments were echoed by others on the board Tuesday, July 29 as they welcomed Solway to the new job that he was to officially start the following day. In actual fact, he began on June 24, shortly after the depar...
