Kewaunee County to host budget hearing Tuesday

You will have your opportunity to weigh in on the Kewaunee County budget for 2022 on Tuesday. The county’s various committees have had their chance to weigh in at their meetings since Administrator Scott Feldt teased portions of it during the last full board meeting. The tax levy sits at $12.8 million while the total expenditures stands at $24.8 million. Taxpayers will see a rate of 6.88 percent, which is the first time it has been below seven percent in a decade and a decrease of 6.9 percent. The budget hearing will take place ahead of the normal board meeting which includes a discussion about approving the new collective bargaining agreement with the union representing members of the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department.  The proposed agreement would remove language regarding someone’s full-time and permanent part-time status. The county proposed a raise of 3 to 5% each year for members of the department depending on their rank. Tuesday’s meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the Kewaunee County Administration Center in Kewaunee.
