29 Kronenwetter residents want judge to void special assessment


KRONENWETTER, Wis (WSAU)   A group of homeowners are suing the Village of Kronenwetter over a special property tax assessment to pay for flooding and drainage problems. 29 people have joined the lawsuit. They say the costs of handling the water problems should come from the village's general fund.

A consultant’s report recommends that the village pay 55-percent of the drainage improvements, with the other 45-percent coming from landowners in the Golden Pond neighborhood. Those special assessments are between $400 and $2,000. Some neighbors say they're being assessed because they live nearby, even though they've never had flooding or drainage problems on their land.

Marathon County Judge Greg Huber will hold a hearing on the case in March.
