Kewaunee County Wants Resident Input on 2017 Budget

Kewaunee County is asking residents to share their thoughts on addressing the 2017 budget, including the potential implementation of a 0.5 percent County Sales & Use Tax. This will be done at a public forum that will discuss spending cuts that have been made and additional cuts under consideration, an increase in county sales and use tax, and encouraging tourism, new business and expansion. The public forum will be held Aug. 29 at 6:30 pm at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds, 625 Third Street, Luxemburg. Kewaunee County Board Supervisors, including those who make up the Finance & Public Property Committee, will be on hand to answer questions, as well as Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt. “The Kewaunee County Finance & Public Property Committee is exploring every option to help us maintain a balanced budget, and a 0.5 percent County Sales & Use Tax is one way that the committee has discussed to fix the issue at hand,” said Feldt.
