Public Hearing on Kenosha County Budget This Week

The public will have an opportunity to comment on the 2017 Kenosha County Budget during a hearing tomorrow night in the board chambers at the Kenosha County Administration Building. County supervisors will then discuss and act on the budget at their meeting on Thursday. Hearings on the 2017 budget took place in multiple Finance and Administration Committee meetings two weeks ago. As proposed by County Executive Jim Kreuser, the budget includes a 2.87 percent increase in the property tax levy. Projects driving the 2017 budget include: the purchase of the Gateway Mortgage building for an expanded Kenosha Adult Residential Emergency Center to give more help to families dealing with mental health issues; remodeling the Public Safety Building to allow for the expansion of the Emergency Operations Center; and highway projects, most of which have state and federal financial contributions in varying amounts from 40 to 80 percent.
