Kewaunee County budget hearing set

Despite the unknown of COVID-19, Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt is proud of the budget set for a hearing next week. The budget calls for a slight increase in the tax levy, although the tax rate will go down. The budget goes up about six percent over last year due to increases in wages and health insurance premiums. Taxpayers are getting a little help due to increased equalized values and higher than expected collections from its sales tax.  Feldt believes the budget is fiscally conservative while being able to invest in the county’s future.
