      • The Brown County Commissioners are set to vote this week on reestablishing the cumulative capital development fund to the maximum rate of 0.0333 on each $100 of assessed value for 2022. Moving to the max would put about $56,000 more into the cumulative capital development fund, which pays for mostly county buildings and grounds upkeep, maintenance and IT services.The current rate is 0.0294, which means the increase will be less than a penny, said Caitlin Cheek, a manager with the county’s financial adviser Baker Tilly.

o. American Rescue Plan Funding (ARPA).  Commissioners reviewed the spending plan. This will be shared with the council at next week’s budget hearings.
