SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Sheboygan County is in a strong position going into 2014. That's what County Administrator Adam Payne told the county board Tuesday evening during his State of the County address. He said this is evident with the quality of programs and services the county provides, a continued outstanding financial track record, and the strong team working for the county.
Payne said this has led to the county lowering property taxes four of the past seven years, saving taxpayers over 40 million dollars, had the county been following statewide trends with raising property taxes.
Payne added many departments stayed near or below budget in 2013, allowing the county to be in a good financial position with its bond rating and healthy fund balance.
