Tax rate drops in proposed budget

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. A public hearing on the 2020 Kewaunee County budget will take place before the board conducts its business at 6 p.m. at the administrative center in Kewaunee.
