County Debt Levels

The “Debt Comparison Report”  as of Dec 31, 2016, provided by the State identifies that Brown County has the 3rd highest total debt per capita in the State.

Since separate legal entities (building corporations) were created to manage the Jail and now Maple Leaf, curious to know if the debt for these facilities figures into the total debt per capita calculation.

The contract for the Maple Leaf land purchase was in 2017. The contract for the Maple Leaf bank loan signed in 2018.
