The Milwaukee County Board’s Budget Committee voted 9 - 0 today to raise taxes on Milwaukee County citizens.
The Milwaukee County Board’s Budget Committee voted 9 – 0 today to raise taxes on Milwaukee County citizens.
The Board voted down the Parks Patrol Plan that would have saved millions of dollars and increased public safety. The plan is supported by County Executive Chris Abele, Mayor Tom Barrett, the Milwaukee Police Department and a majority of the City of Milwaukee Common Council.
“The vote today by the Board sends a disappointing message to taxpayers and hurts future cooperation efforts between municipalities and the County,” Abele said. “This proposal would have saved County taxpayers $5.2 million over three years.”
