Every December, Prairie du Chien City Administrator Aaron Kramer compiles a budget book for the coming year. It includes a review of the current year, an assessment of what projects are to come the next year, a rundown of revenue and expenses for the coming year, a chart showing how Prairie du Chien ranks among other cities, as well as some miscellaneous information and pictures.
If you are a taxpayer in the city of Prairie du Chien, this budget book would be of great interest to you. Copies are available at City Hall, and on the city’s website (www.prairieduchien.info).
Prairie du Chien taxpayers will see a decrease of about $2.19 on a home assessed at $100,000 on their 2014 tax bill, determined by the total tax values and rates from the city, the county, the K-12 and college school systems, and the state combined.
