Increased bond rating benefits Kewaunee County taxpayers

Good budget management practices have earned Kewaunee County improved bond ratings from a nationally known investing firm.  The county's $9.65-million in general obligation debt led Moody's Investors Service to award an A1 bond rating for its long-term borrowing.  That's an upgrade from the A2 rating issued in 2015 when its general obligation debts of $16.12-millon.  Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt says that will allow work on major projects like the county jail to proceed with lower costs.
 



Feldt says capping the county landfill, the addition of a half-percent county sales tax and a new capital development plan have helped improve the county's financial situation.
