WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) - Recent reports criticizing Marathon County Sheriff Randy Hoenisch’s attendance have the attention of the County Board. Chairman Gary Wyman knows supervisors have been getting calls from county citizens about the Sheriff’s alleged poor attendance.
Wyman has heard that Hoenisch has granted interviews today to at least two media outlets, and he’s anxious to see what transpires during the interviews. "I think that it's appropriate that he has an opportunity to respond to the reports that have been published, and it's my understanding in talking with reporters that he has scheduled meetings, at least two of them, and I told reporters that the board and I will be looking very closely at the questions they ask and the answers he gives.”
WSAU has written and left messages requesting an interview, but so far, there is no response.
An open records request by the Wausau Daily Herald found that Sheriff Randy Hoenisch has put in under two hours at the office so far this year, and only 82 days during 2012 based on logs from his electronic door card. Hoenisch has said those totals do not accurately reflect his time on the job.
