Sales tax case impacts Kewaunee County budget

Kewaunee County could be making some budget changes depending on the outcome of a lawsuit over Brown County's half-cent sales tax.  A judge says he'll render a decision soon on a challenge to how Brown County uses sales tax revenues.  The Brown County Taxpayers Alliance contends that such funds should be used for direct property tax relief rather than capital improvement projects.  Kewaunee County currently levies a similar sales tax.  County Administrator Scott Feldt says depending on the judge's decision Kewaunee County could face a million dollar impact.



Kewaunee County is currently working on the 2020 budget and estimated county sales tax revenues are being calculated in that spending plan.
