GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Shoppers in Brown County will soon have a little extra cash in their wallets.

The Green Bay-Brown County Professional Football District Board says the half-percent sales tax imposed nearly 15 years ago for Lambeau Field bonds and maintenance is coming to an early end.

Unlike the Miller Park tax which includes five counties around the Milwaukee area, the Lambeau tax was only in Brown County. The board has notified state revenue officials that it has paid off bonds which funded the $295 million renovation of the Green Bay Packers’ stadium and has $90 million for maintenance and operating costs through 2031. That’s when the Packers’ lease expires.

WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/1CMe8kN ) reports the sales tax which began in 2000 and generated about $20 million a year will end no later than September. It was expected to end in 2021.
