Town of Saukville supervisors said Tuesday they hope to create a segregated fund to supplement dollars regularly budgeted for road maintenance.

During the town’s annual budget hearing, Supr. Mike Denzien told town residents that the account would be created from unspent budgeted dollars that currently go into town reserves, which currently total almost $900,000.

“We’re going to go back and see what funds were unspent and look at putting those toward repairing our roads,” Denzien said.

The town has almost 40 miles of roads to maintain. The 2020 budget allocates $265,981 for public works, which includes road repair and maintenance. That’s down from $287,031 in 2019.

At the meeting, town electors approved the 2020 budget, which calls for spending $631,544, up less than 1% from 2019. 

The town tax rate is $2.11 per $1,000 of assessed value. That means the owner of a $200,000 house will pay $422 in town taxes, $2 less than in 2019 when the tax rate was $2.13.
