Dineen, chairman of the Milwaukee County Park Commission, and C. L. Skinner, head of the Dane County Zoning Department said Thursday they would not be opposed to towns setting up zoning regulations if the town authority did not supercede alrcady^stab-lished county rcKiuircmcnts. Dineen and Skinner testified at a hearing on a bill offered to the Legislature by Assemblyman Bnnden (Rep.-Union Grove). His proposal would give town boards authority to adopt zoning regulations so residents of towns could prevent de\'eIopment of undesired business or enterprises. M. W. Torkelson, director of the State Planning Board,, told of the current county zoning ordinances on land usage. Hearings were continued until next month on the zoning proposal and on two other bills offered by Runden. One would license by state law all persons furnishing hayrack and sleigh rides in counties containing first and second class cities and the other would give towns authority to set up recreation departments for young persons. Runden conducted an informal talk on fund-raising plans for the proposed recreation departments. No witnesses appeared for or against the sleigh ride license bill.
