Brown County sales tax

Things That Make Us Wonder and more. . .

Response to County Executive Streckenbach’s press conference this morning 1/8/18

Brown County does not “have to” spend $147 million in additional projects over the next 6 years, so Brown County would not “have to” raise property taxes to pay for them. County Executive Streckenbach this morning stated that the Brown County taxpayer will have to pay $24M more in property taxes if the BCTA prevails in this litigation. How do you reconcile that against the approximate $130M in additional taxes - a sales tax in this case - that it will cost that same taxpayer over the next six years?
