Transfer of ambulance to AAH expected to bring significant property tax decrease

by Leslie Ehrenberg

Residents of Appleton could see a significant drop in property taxes in 2021. While the Appleton City Council is preparing to adopt a preliminary levy with a 6.22 percent increase, they are expecting to bring this down considerably by the end of the year.

Cities must adopt their preliminary budget and levy in September. They then have until the end of the year to adopt a final levy. At that time, they can lower the levy, but cannot raise it.

The preliminary levy the council expects to adopt includes the Appleton Ambulance Service budget. As the city and Appleton Area Health (AAH) prepares to transfer this service to AAH, hopes are to adopt a final levy with a 5.673 percent decrease.
