Brown County Executive unveils 2022 budget proposal with tax decreases and road investments
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – Brown County’s new budget may help you save on taxes if it survives a vote by county board supervisors at the end of the month.The proposal was presented by Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach on Friday at the S.T.E.M. Innovation Center. It includes investments for body cams, major road projects and a research park at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.“Overall costs of business is going up. Figure out a way to address that,” Streckenbach said to several leaders of county agencies attending his presentation citing inflation.He’s proposing decreasing the mill rate by 26 cents from $3.98 to $3.72. Municipalities and schools can still increase their mill rates to offset that reduction.
…Brown County is also looking to buy 63 acres from UWGB to build a research park called Phoenix Innovation Park. “We’re hoping by the end of this year we’ll have an agreement in place that allows us to ultimately start making the next steps to go forward,” he said.
