Community Meeting – Brown County Matters


Aug 25, 2018. 10 am to noon – Library.  Great discussion — it was a fast 2 hours.  Topics included the  local economy, tax policy, need for planning,  the impact of the drug epidemic  on people, culture, courts, police, economy and budgets, local and regional strategies to increase the economic opportunities for our citizens and the need for a community newsletter.

Below are the handouts that were provided regarding the economy and schedule of community meetings to discuss the State of the County  regarding economic development.

On income and property taxes, there is a relationship between the two, e.g, a decision regarding income taxes impacts what you can and cannot do with property taxes. Tax terms  I plan on learning more about:  circuit breaker, growth quotient, levy freeze.
