Cadott Village Board; The levy and mill rate set for 2021, after public hearing

By Julia Wolf

The 2021 proposed budget was set, during a regular Cadott Village Board meeting, Dec. 7.

During a public hearing on the matter, clerk Sandy Buetow said the proposed 2021 budget, did not change, since they held the budget workshop.

“If you see, on the last page, it shows the village tax levy, which is right at the levy limit, of $616,562,” said Buetow.

The net mill rate is 0.2206, compared to last year’s 0.2146.

“It’s a difference of 60 cents per thousand,” said Buetow.

Members approved the mill rate, village levy and the total levy of $2,097,736.34.

“I just want it to be noted that our last page there, it shows the difference between 2020 and 2021, on the vocational school levy, notice that has gone up 14.3 percent,” said Les Liptak, board member.

Board president Anson Albarado said the difference was, in part, because of the spring Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) referendum.

In other business, Rolly Tichy, public works, reported the village is switching companies for electronic and appliance recycling, since the previous company is no longer working out well. Tichy says there are a few price differences between the previous company and First Choice, the new company.

Albarado also reported he is referring the Chippewa River Rendezvous to the Parks Committee for further discussion, after he had some phone conversations. The meeting will be scheduled after the holiday season, to discuss whether the group can use the mud bog area for their event.
