When they open their bills in December, Menomonie residents should be happy to see they’ll be paying less to the city for property taxes.

At its Nov. 21 meeting, the city council unanimously approved a $4.7 million tax levy, resulting in a tax rate of $6.06 per thousand of valuation – down 24 cents from last year. A new mill rate of $18.74 reflects a 94-cent drop from 2021. On a $100,000 property, taxes will go down $94, double that for a property valued at $200,000.

Jeff Smith - Building Strong Local Economies, One Small Business At A Time

November 28, 2022

I guess you can call me a professional window shopper. For years I worked alongside my father, who founded our window cleaning company in 1954. One of the highlights for me was cleaning storefront windows. It was wonderful to see the unique displays and the twinkling, inviting lights, especially during the holidays.
