The Village of Ephraim will have a referendum on paying for infrastructure expenses by seeking a one-half percent sales tax on tourism-related items offered by retailers.  The Village of Egg Harbor will be asking voters to decide on a referendum that would allow exceeding the increase-tax limit for 2022, with the purpose of providing operating funds for the Donald and Carol Kress Pavilion and Egg Harbor Library.

At the same time, the City of Kewaunee will have three contested races for their common council.
