Maine faces the brokaw challenges
The Village of Maine was featured in a Wausau Pilot & Review article on December 29, 2020. Reporter Peter Cameron summarized the creative teamwork and strategies that made the Maine/Brokaw merger work to the advantage of citizens of both villages without raising taxes for residents.
Check out this informative article at:
Residents of the Village of Maine are encouraged to attend Village open meetings. The Board of Trustees meets the 2nd Monday of each month, unless otherwise noted.

Agendas are posted 24 hours in advance of meetings and can be accessed from Upcoming Events on the home page, or by clicking the Documents menu tab, then choosing Agendas, Board of Trustees.

From Patti Neumann,
The Village of Maine tax rate for 2019 was .02098 and for 2020 the rate remained .02098. This amount, multiplied by your total assessed value, is your property tax liability.
This liability amount is increased by special charges (garbage collection) and reduced by credits.
The changes that we are seeing this year are:
*Credit amounts are not determined by the Village.
The percentages in the middle section of your tax bill indicate the percentage of change in the allocation of the total tax revenue, not an increase or decrease of an individual taxpayer’s liability ($41.10 is not a 13.3% increase in what I paid last year as an example).
I hope this provides clarification
