Pat Shaw expressed concerned about the tax ramifications on county taxes if the Town Board encourages Waupaca County to increase police staffing. The Town Board explained that they’re not looking for the county to increase overall expenses; rather, to re-prioritize where Waupaca County spends their money to make public safety a higher priority.
