2013 County budget public hearing Tuesday (11/25/2012)
By Sarah Squires

A public hearing will be held on the 2013 Winona County budget and fee schedule on Tuesday, November 27, at 7 p.m. at the County Government Center on Main Street.

The proposed 2013 property tax levy of $16.4 million is about three percent less than property taxes collected in 2012. The total budget is proposed to be $44.8 million, down from $47.7 million in 2012.

Much of the spending decrease is based on fewer highway construction projects planned for 2013; the highway fund is expected to be down by more than $3 million. Additionally, the Community Services Department budget, which includes public health and human services, has been pared by about $800,000 for 2013.

The board is also expected to appoint a temporary replacement to serve when current Auditor/Treasurer Sue Rivers retires at the end of the month. An assistant to Rivers is expected to be appointed to the position for a short time while the county seeks someone to fill the post until the position is up for re-election in November 2014.

At 6 p.m. on Tuesday, the board is expected to close the meeting to the public in order to conduct a performance review of County Administrator Duane Hebert. A consultant was hired to assist in this job evaluation, at a cost of $150 per hour plus travel expenses.
