GREEN BAY (AP) — The Brown County sales tax that has helped fund Lambeau Field improvements will end by the end of 2015.

Patrick Webb, executive director of the Green Bay/Brown County Professional Football Stadium District, provided the Brown County Board of Supervisors’ Executive Committee with an update Monday evening.

He said the 0.5 percent sales tax will expire no later than the end of 2015 and possibly as soon as Sept. 30, 2015.

The district was set up by state law after Brown County voters in fall of 2000 approved a plan to fund improvements to Lambeau Field with the 0.5 percent sales tax.

The tax produces about $20 million annually.

    The Miller Park sales tax was supposed to end in 2014. Then it was pushed back to 2018. Now they’re predicting 2021. (insert sarcasm here) Why end it at all? Don’t we have to build a new arena for the Bucks?

    the miller park tax will never end. the city will want to try to collect sales taxes for other projects in the future, i.e. bradley center. good luck getting that one shoved down the tax payers throats. big surprise, tax payers lied to AGAIN.
