Jobs saved in Kewaunee County budget

Kewaunee County residents will not see their tax bill go up despite the board saving two jobs from being cut. The board moved money around from several different areas including the Economic Development Fund and the Land Information Office. The moves saved an administrative position in the UW-Extension office and a part-time clerk in the Register of Deeds office from being eliminated, albeit by close votes. In the end, Kewaunee County Board Chairperson Robert Weidner says he is proud of the budget that was passed by an 18-1 margin.

Weidner noted he was also happy for the money budgeted for important road projects as well as being able to adequately compensate its workforce.  The average property owner with a $150,000 home will save approximately $25 on their county taxes in 2020 as a result of the budget passage.
