Newbold town chair "okay with that": $10,000 increase to Rhinelander District Library
Link to December 2 Rhinelander Daily News article, "Newbold residents pass tax decrease. Vote forces board to cut $40,000 more from budget".
Excerpt: Newbold’s share in the Rhinelander District Library also went up this year. That is at $144,228, nearly a $10,000 increase from last year. Newbold’s share of the library among the five municipalities is bound by a formula that considers equalized property values and population. Kroll went to the library to try to get the tax reduced but was unsuccessful.
“I was obligated to make the request, it failed, we move on,” Kroll said. “I’m okay with that.”
