Kewaunee County taxpayers will get a bit of a break on their property tax bills under the nearly $23-million 2019 budget approved by county supervisors. The tax rate dropped from $7.33 to $7.25 per
$1,000 in home value. That’ll save the owner of a $150-thousand home just under $7.00. County Administrator Scott Feldt says the closure of the county landfill is also giving taxpayers a break.
Kewaunee County taxpayers also get some relief by removing $1-million earmarked for broadband internet development. A committee is being formed to further discuss and research internet needs before funding is allocated for development.
