Kewaunee County to see lower tax rates in 2024

Property owners in Kewaunee County have good news coming their way when it comes to paying their taxes. Interim County Administrator Ed Dorner shared with the Kewaunee County Board on Tuesday the 2024 budget as a part of his report. Total expenditures are expected to go up $774,703 over the adopted 2023 budget along with the tax levy going up $357,669. Part of the reason for that is the addition of almost two new full-time employees and a boost in the cost of living increases and health insurance premiums. Kewaunee County property owners will see their tax rate drop $1.15 per $1,000 from $6.20 to $5.05. Dorner says the pre-payment of some of the county’s debt and an increase in the county’s equalized value is the reason for good news on people’s tax bills.



You can access the budget by clicking this link. The Kewaunee County Board will hold a public hearing on the budget on October 17th at 6 p.m. ahead of the regular board meeting. The budget could then potentially be approved at the Kewaunee County Board’s November meeting.
