October 1, 2014, West Bend, Wisconsin:
While other supposedly conservative counties are increasing their property tax levy on an annual basis, Joshua Schoemann, the Washington County, Wisconsin Manager, released his 2015 budget today. Within the report is a proposed reduction in the property tax levy of $1,000,000. This would be the lowest tax levy in over a decade. This would also represent a 10% reduction in the levy since 2010.
