The 0.5 percent sales tax in Kewaunee County could be extended another five years pending a Board of Supervisors vote on April 27th. The tax established in 2016 by a majority vote was set to expire at the end of this year before going through the committee process over the late winter months. The county sales tax generated approximately $1.3 million in 2020, the most it has produced since it was instituted. Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt says it is important to note that the sales tax will be reevaluated again in five years like it has this year.
The Kewaunee County Board of Supervisors will also honor the life of the late family court commissioner Bill Wolske and discuss Feldt’s recommendation to hire Jeff Wisnicky as the new Department of Human Services head at its April 27th meeting. It will take place at the Kewaunee County Administration Center in Kewaunee at 6 p.m.
