Last year, Brown County partnered with the U.S. Census Bureau to encourage everyone to #BeCounted for the #2020Census. #thankyou to everyone who participated! Wisconsin finished in the Top 3 nationally with Brown County having above-average self-responses among counties in our state.

It's Flood Insurance Awareness Week in WI

MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin Insurance Commissioner Mark Afable has announced the start of Flood Insurance Awareness Week.

“This week, we are encouraging Wisconsin consumers to learn more about the importance and benefits of flood insurance before the snow starts melting and the rain starts falling," said Commissioner Afable. “With precipitation on the rise due to a changing climate, proper insurance coverage is a great step to secure the financial stability of families and communities that may be impacted by flooding."

Governor Tony Evers proclaimed February 7 – 13, 2021 Flood Insurance Awareness Week in the State of Wisconsin to underscore the importance of obtaining flood insurance early. Some flood insurance policies, including the policies from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), have a 30-day waiting period before they take effect.

Typical renters, homeowners, or business insurance policies do not cover damage from floods, while federal disaster assistance is only available to flood victims if an official declaration has been issued. Even then, that federal aid is available only to those who qualify. A flood insurance policy can provide coverage with or without a disaster declaration and can help homeowners, renters, and business owners impacted by flooding recover faster. Wisconsinites can buy a flood insurance policy through either the NFIP, a federal program enabling property owners in participating communities to purchase insurance protection against losses from flooding, or through a private carrier.

“Now is a great time for consumers to evaluate their existing insurance coverage and see if they are adequately protected from flood damage," Commissioner Afable said. “An insurance policy cannot reverse the damage inflicted by flooding, but it can help flood victims get back on their feet and on the path to recovery."

Consumers should contact their local insurance agent or visit www.floodsmart.gov for more information about these opportunities.

[2/3/2021] 5:35am. Update on the approaching Winter Storm

Changes to the forecast:
1. A winter storm watch remains in effect for all of northeastern Wisconsin. The start time has shift some for the far eastern counties, to account for a slightly slower arrival.

2. Snowfall amounts have trended upwards, especially for much of northern Wisconsin.

Synopsis:
A light wintry mix will begin to overspread the region after midnight tonight, changing over to snow Thursday morning. Moderate to heavy snowfall will then fall over the region Thursday afternoon and evening, before decreasing again Thursday night. Winds will pick up Thursday night as snow begins to taper off, creating a blowing and drifting snow concern for Friday. This will likely also hamper efforts to clear the recently fallen snow. Travel over the course of Thursday and Friday morning will likely be impacted and slowed down by this storm system. The long period of snowfall will bring upwards of 5 inches for most of the area, and more for a good chunk of northeastern Wisconsin.

The survey takes about 9 minutes to complete. Please consider helping out our Neville Public Museum!

We at the Neville care deeply about making the history, science, and art we share with you, our community and visitors, meaningful.

But we need your help. In these tumultuous times, we need to understand how we can best engage you virtually, when our audiences will be ready to return to the museum in person, and how we can best aid in rebuilding our community after the pandemic wanes.

To learn more about how to do this, we are participating in a national survey of museum-goers, sponsored by the American Alliance of Museums. This survey will provide us with data from our visitors as well as nationwide results, helping us be more effective to the communities we serve in the coming months and for years to come.

The survey takes about 9 minutes to complete. We appreciate your participation and insight.

This a huge announcement impacting our community! #economicdevelopment

I'm excited to announce that Brown County has reached a tentative agreement to purchase part of the Pulliam Plant site! This site is a vital asset not just for the greater Green Bay area, but for the economic growth potential for the Port of Green Bay - The Port of Call for All that impacts all of northeastern Wisconsin. I want to thank Mayor Eric Genrich, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation CEO Missy Hughes, and Sen. Andre Jacque for bringing all of this together by recognizing the importance of port growth and the revitalization of the Fox River waterfront. #economicdevelopment (Photo from Jeff Bollier).

General information

Agriculture Brown County has an excellent agriculture production area and agribusiness is of tremendous importance to the community. Dairying is the largest income generator, although canning, cash crops, and other livestock also contribute substantially to the income in this area. County Courthouse In 1992, Brown County completed a ten million dollar project to restore and refurbish its courthouse. At the time it was originally dedicated in 1911, the newly built courthouse in Green Bay, Wisconsin was described by the newspapers as being "unsurpassed in the State". Education Brown County offers higher education opportunities at three major institutions: The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, St. Norbert College and Northeastern Wisconsin Technical College. Industries Brown County is composed of 13 townships, nine villages and two cities, of which Green Bay is the largest. It is one of the most progressive and rapidly growing cities in Wisconsin while still retaining some of the most beautiful and charming residential suburbs. The largest employer in Brown County is the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin: Business/Development Corp. Our community is home to two of the largest insurance companies in the State of Wisconsin. The principal industry of Green Bay is that of paper-making. The city has four large paper mills, three pulp mills and four paper-converting companies. These mills specialize in tissue papers, such as toilet paper, towels, napkins and tablecloths, with some wrapping and printing papers, and in chipboard for the manufacture of boxes, all of which are used throughout the nation. Green Bay is the largest cheese processing, concentrating and shipping center in the U.S. Green Bay is home base for one of the nation's most recognized environmental quality paper converters and recycling companies. In fact, the recycling industry is fast becoming a sizable economic force in new jobs: paper, plastics, and wood products are all being recycled/processed locally. Brown County is also the home of an internationally recognized manufacturer of custom log homes. Other important industries are furniture factories, automobile parts plants, cold storage plants, dairy products plants, fisheries, meat processing, machinery production, transportation and national communications are all located here within. Green Bay Packers Green Bay holds the distinction for being nicknamed "Titletown, U.S.A." because of their domination of professional football throughout the 1960's. Packer football has been synonymous with leadership, talent, and winning. Thanks to the likes of Lombardi, Starr, Taylor, Davis, Nitschke, and numerous others who are today, enshrined in the Pro-Football Hall of Fame. The Green Bay Packers have captured the National Football League Championship on 14 occasions including the Super Bowl I, II, ###II and XLV. League Championships 1929, 1930, 1931 (League Champions) 1936 Green Bay -- 21; Boston -- 6 1939 Green Bay -- 27; New York Giants -- 0 1944 Green Bay -- 14; New York Giants -- 7 1961 Green Bay -- 37; New York Giants -- 0 1962 Green Bay -- 16; New York Giants -- 7 1965 Green Bay -- 23; Cleveland -- 12 1966 Green Bay -- 35; Kansas City -- 10 (Super Bowl I) 1967 Green Bay -- 33; Oakland -- 14 (Super Bowl II) 1996 Green Bay -- 35; New England -- 21 (Super Bowl ###II) 2010 Green Bay -- 31; Pittsburgh -- 25 (Super Bowl XLV) Tourism & Recreation Brown County boasts numerous tourism attractions which include: Heritage Hill State Park, the N.E.W. Zoo, The National Railroad Museum, the Packer Football Hall of Fame, Bay Beach Amusement Park, Weidner Center for the Performing Arts, the Green Bay Community Theatre, the Neville Public Museum, Hazelwood Historical House Museum, and others too numerous to mention. Brown County also operates an 18-hole Golf Course, rated one of the best in Wisconsin! The Fox River is once again becoming a major attraction for water sports, sport fishing and walleye hatchery. Much of the success is due to the improvement of the water's quality and waterfront development/planning. Transportation The Green Bay area is the transportation hub of Northeastern Wisconsin. Our highway system has the only complete beltline in Wisconsin. Together with rail and port facilities, there is excellent cargo service provided by Wisconsin Central. Many trucking firms haul cargo out of Green Bay, with some of the nations largest having headquarters or terminals located within our boundaries. Brown County has one of the finest harbors on the Great Lakes, and the Port of Green Bay is an international port for domestic and foreign trade. Ocean vessels also call at the Port of Green Bay on a regular basis. The marine tonnage entering the harbor has annually averaged more than 143 ships and 1,637,776 tons. Green Bay-Austin Straubel International Airport is owned by Brown County and was named in honor of Lt. Col. Austin Straubel, a Green Bay native, killed in action while serving in the U.S. Air Corps in the South Pacific in 1942. Austin Straubel International Airport is the third largest airport in the State of Wisconsin and has title to 1,500 acres.
