WAUKESHA COUNTY AND CITY LEADERS
REMIND RESIDENTS: THERE’S STILL TIME TO GET YOUR FLU SHOT!
“Although the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that most
people get their flu shot by the end of October, flu cases don’t peak until
between December and March,” said Waukesha County Public Health Officer Ben
Jones. “So even if you’ve waited a bit longer than this season, there’s still
plenty of time to protect yourself and your family from the influenza virus.”
An annual flu vaccine is the first and best way to protect yourself and
your family from the flu. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’
visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related
hospitalizations. The more people who get vaccinated, the more people will be
protected from flu, including older people, very young children, pregnant women
and people with certain health conditions who are more vulnerable to serious

WAUKESHA COUNTY EXECUTIVE PAUL FARROW INTRODUCES 2017
(WAUKESHA, WI) – Waukesha County E...
(WAUKESHA, WI) – Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow
has introduced his 2017 Executive Budget to the Waukesha County Board of
Supervisors. The budget freezes the County tax bill on a median-valued home and
reduces the tax rate while funding public safety and economic development. The
County Board is expected to pass the final budget in November.
“I’m proud to say that this
budget is in line with the priorities of our residents,” said County Executive
Paul Farrow. “It upholds Waukesha County’s reputation as a low tax leader while
funding the areas of Justice and Public Safety. This budget also ensures that
Waukesha County will thrive in the future by investing in economic
If the County Executive’s Budget
is passed as-is, a County homeowner with a median-valued home of $256,650 will
see no change from last year on the county portion of their tax bill. The tax
rate would also drop from $2.04 to $1.99 per thousand dollars of home value.
The 2017 Waukesha County
Executive Budget funds public safety priorities while focusing on efficiency.
In addition, the plan invests in the second phase of a fire department study to
identify potential partnerships between municipalities to save taxpayer money.
The budget also supports the new
Waukesha County Center for Growth, an economic development partnership between
the County, the City of Waukesha, the Waukesha County Business Alliance, and
the University of Wisconsin Small Business Development Center.
