Delays to the Brown County Sales Tax Plan

Questions raised by the Mayor and City Council could delay vote on proposed tax plan

Press Release ( - GREEN BAY, Wis. - Jun 18, 2017 - Due to some emails and questions regarding the proposed increased 0.5% Brown County Sales Tax to help fund the Expo Center and other area projects, District 11 wanted to clarify that the Green Bay City Council has NOT denied nor rejected the plan (there seems to be some confusion that city has rejected the plan and thus, prevented the 0.5% sales tax from executing).

Based on public comments and statements made by numerous City Council members, they are simply investing time in reviewing the plan, any amendments, and quantifying community impact. It has also been reported that the Green Bay Mayor has some challenges to the proposed plan in its current form, stating that the City of Green Bay is under-served by the capital plan in a memorandum to Green Bay City Council members. While delayed and moving at a cautious pace, it would seem that Green Bay City Council members are supportive to the plan’s concept and goals and have made it clear they want to work with the County on what would be considered a more equitable proposal for the city. Again, this is for informational purposes and if you do have questions or would like specific perspectives, we encourage citizens to reach out to their City Council or Brown County representatives.
