The early stages of constructing the Kewaunee County budget have not experienced the same drama it had just a year ago. Last year’s budget discussion included the debate over the implementation of a 0.5 percent sales tax, which was put into effect earlier this year. This year, Kewaunee County Finance Committee Chairperson Lee Luft says the budget does not just keep in check revenues and expenses, but also details specifics in areas such as capital improvements and personnel.
The Finance Committee will meet at least two more times before a scheduled budget hearing and a public session on October 17 at 6 p.m.
