Over the past few years, Milwaukee County leaders have faced some difficult budget decisions. Many efficiencies have been found, and tough cuts have been made. But fundamentally, we don’t control our own destiny when it comes to balancing our budget. Going into 2019, we’re at a turning point: We face a $23.5 million budget gap, and more cuts are going to start fundamentally affecting how – and how well – we can deliver services.
Milwaukee County provides programs that give a helping hand to many of the most vulnerable in our community, and we also offer services that improve everyone’s quality of life, from the airport to the zoo. Whether you live, play or work in Milwaukee County, you’re impacted by what we do – and by our budget challenges.
That’s why we want you to be part of this process. Use our web-based budget tool to learn more about how the County budget works and to show us your priorities. Then sign up to keep receiving info on how you can help make sure our budget is healthy, balanced and fair.
