With sales tax revenues dropping and some program costs increasing, Bayfield County supervisors and department heads have their work cut out for them crafting the 2021 budget. But they will have a road map provided by residents to follow as they peruse the results of the annual budget survey released Tuesday.

Thanks to COVID-19, Bayfield County estimates losing about $225,000, or 17%, in sales tax revenue in 2020, County Administrator Mark Abeles-Allison said. The sales tax accounts for about 3-4% of the budget’s revenue.
