Whitewater Common Council Approves Resolution for November Ballot Referendum Question

At this week’s Whitewater Common Council meeting, they approved a resolution authorizing a referendum question for the November 2022 ballot, asking whether or not the City of Whitewater should be allowed to exceed its tax levy limit by $1,100,000 in 2023 and on an ongoing basis for the purpose of establishing, staffing, and operating a City of Whitewater Municipal Government Fire and Emergency Services Department. The question will read as follows:


“Under state law, the increase in the levy of the City of Whitewater for the tax to be imposed

for the next fiscal year 2023 is limited to 7.673%, which results in a levy of $4,656,852. Shall the City of Whitewater be allowed to exceed this limit and increase the levy for the next fiscal year 2023 for the purpose of establishing, staffing and operating a City of Whitewater Municipal Government Fire and Emergency Services Department (Municipal Department), by a total of 23.621%, which results in a levy of $5,756,852, and on an ongoing basis, include the increase of $1,100,000 for each fiscal year going forward?”


A “yes” vote on the question means that the elector is in favor of $1,100,000 of additional

taxation by the City of Whitewater through an ongoing increase in the annual property tax levy to establish, staff, and operate a municipal government Fire and Emergency Services Department.


A “no” vote on the question means that the elector is not in favor of $1,100,000 of

additional taxation to pay to establish, staff, and operate a municipal government Fire and

Emergency Services Department.
