(Brown County, Wis.) – For the first time in more than 30 years, the Brown County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved County Executive Troy Streckenbach’s 2021 budget plan, thus providing another major property tax rate cut that reduces the rate to its lowest level in four decades.
“Despite Brown County’s struggles with the COVID-19 pandemic, this budget plan features lower property tax rates, reduction of outstanding debt, and continued investment in our infrastructure,” says Streckenbach. “Thank you to all the Brown County Supervisors who approved this plan promoting historic financial achievements not seen in many years.”
The 2021 mill rate will decrease by 20 cents, from $4.18 to $3.98. On a home valued at $200,000, this year’s equalized tax rate will fall over $40 to $795.84. By the end of 2021, Brown County will have paid off over $64 million in debt while saving taxpayers millions of dollars in interest payments since 2017.
