The Winnebago City Council passed a new Tax Abatement program for new single family and multifamily housing. The program would allow for 100% of city taxes to be eligible for abatement for 5 years for newly build single and multifamily projects. This is a project that is currently under revision and consideration in Blue Earth and Wells.
City Administrator Judy Hynes has also announced that there is a new website for the City of Winnebago, cityofwinnebago.com. The redesign and release was intended to modernize the sit and to make it more user friendly.
