An experienced Kenosha County employee has been promoted to the position of Land Information Officer and director of the Division of Land Information.
Scott Schutze succeeds Al Brokmeier, who retired on June 2 after 28 years with Kenosha County. The County Board confirmed County Executive Jim Kreuser’s appointment of Schutze on a unanimous vote Tuesday night.
Schutze joined the county as a GIS senior systems operator in February 1996, and was promoted to GIS systems coordinator in October 2001. He became assistant director of the Division of Land Information in January 2016.
As director, Schutze will oversee the office that administers the county’s real property listing records and the geographic information systems program, including the interactive mapping tool available to the public at http://www.kenoshacounty.org/673/Interactive-Mapping. The Division of Land Information is also the repository for all land surveys conducted in Kenosha County, and it assigns addresses for unincorporated municipalities.
“I have been fortunate enough to work with the county for the last 21-plus years, and I look forward to continuing to serve the county and the public that we serve for many more years to come,” Schutze said.
Schutze earned a bachelor of science in geography from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. He is a member of the Wisconsin Land Information Association and the Wisconsin Real Property Listers Association.
Kreuser said he was pleased to promote Schutze to lead the Land Information office.
“Scott is one of the many employees who work hard every day to make Kenosha County a better place to live, work and raise a family,” Kreuser said. “He will do an excellent job as director of land information in keeping with the fine example set by Al Brokmeier in the role for many years.”
The Division of Land Information is located in the lower level of the Kenosha County Administration Building, 1010 56th St. For more information, visit the division’s website, http://www.kenoshacounty.org/529/Land-Information, or call 262-653-2622.
