Kewaunee County residents could stand to pay less in taxes next year according to is preliminary budget. The budget is set for around $22,575,000, a decrease of about $210,000 from 2019. That means a $17 savings for taxpayers with a $100,000 home. Kewaunee County Board Chairperson Robert Weidner says the biggest news comes from the highway department.
According to the budget book included by clicking this link, the budget cuts a full-time position from the UW-Extension office and makes changes to other positions in the county.
