July 8, 2019 – Washington County, WI – The Washington County Planning and Parks Department want to create an annual special assessment on your tax bill for Properties Served by Private Onsite Wastewater Treatment System (POWTS) to cover costs of tracking and maintenance of the POWTS serving your property.

Recently each property owner who has a POWTS received a letter from the Planning and Parks Department dated June 19, 2019 informing them of a public hearing on Thursday, July 25, 2019 at 7:35 a.m., in Room 1014 of the Herbert J Tennies Government Center, 423 E.  Washington Street, West Bend.

This comes after the Washington County Board of Supervisors wanted to change the form of government in Washington County by changing from an appointed County Administrator to an elected position of County Executive.

Seems Washington County elected officials and staff are trying to create big government in Washington County. Do you support that?

If not, call your County Supervisor and let them know you are against both of the newly proposed changes. You can find the name of your Supervisor and at this website link by clicking HERE.

You also can attend the meeting and voice your opinion on the new TAX ASSESSMENT.

What has happened to the conservative Washington County government which worked to keep taxes low that we have come to expect and trust?
