La Crosse County Board of Supervisors Passes Administrator’s Recommended Budget
The County Board of Supervisors passed the 2021 budget of $170.66 million. This is an increase of 2.42% over 2020, with 21.38% of revenues coming from local property taxes. State and Federal revenues, grants, and with fees for service make up the remaining budget expenses.
The recommended budget will retain La Crosse County’s ranking as 6th lowest per capita tax levy among all 72 Wisconsin Counties.
The County ended the close of fiscal year 2019 in the strongest financial position in the past 17 years with strong reserves due to stronger than anticipated revenues and departments underspending their approved budgets. Current 2020 budget performance shows revenues on track year-to-date and decreased expenses in many areas, while the County is working to maximize federal CARES ACT reimbursement for increased cost of COVID-19 pandemic response.
