Sanborn taxes

About 15% of Sanborn residents now are paying for 100% of town services. Local leaders have pressed the state for solutions, but none has been found so far.

One local leader is increasingly convinced that the state won’t step in to solve a crippling tax problem in Sanborn — though lawmakers say they’re not giving up.

Ashland County Administrator Dan Grady said he believes residents in Sanborn and in Bayfield County’s town of Russell likely will have to seek their own solutions to the problem that saw some property taxes double this year.
