GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - A sales tax imposed in Brown County about 15 years ago is coming to an end.

The half-percent sales tax went into effect in January 2001 to pay for Lambeau Field renovations after voters approved it in a referendum.

WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/1KRrxaK ) reports the tax ends Wednesday.

The revenue was used to pay for $160 million in bonding for the $295 million renovation of Lambeau Field in 2003. It also provided the Green Bay Packers with a capped amount of maintenance reimbursement.
