Milwaukee County Board to Hold Budget Public Hearing November 2

Hearing at 6:30 p.m. at Mitchell Park Domes; Public Invited to Speak Out on Budget Issues

By - Oct 30th, 2015 02:42 pm

The Milwaukee County Board will hold a public hearing on the 2016 Recommended Budget and amendments at the Mitchell Park Domes, 524 S. Layton Blvd., at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, November 2. The Board welcomes public testimony to help determine the County’s priorities for the coming year.

“The budget is the most significant document considered by Milwaukee County,” said Board Chairman Theodore Lipscomb, Sr. “It sets the priorities and policies for the County. This hearing continues an open and transparent process of public meetings by the Finance, Personnel, and Audit Committee throughout the month of October.

“I invite Milwaukee County residents to join us at the hearing to speak out on the issues that are important to them. Funding for public safety, parks, transit and the $4 million budget hole created by County Executive Chris Abele to pay the County’s share for the new Milwaukee Bucks arena have been hot topics during budget deliberations.”

The Committee on Finance, Personnel, and Audit will meet at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, November 4th in room 203R of the Milwaukee County Courthouse to consider budget amendments resulting from public testimony at the Board’s public hearing.

“We are elected to represent our constituents’ interests, so listening to the public is a critical part of the budget process,” Lipscomb said.

The Domes will be open to the public with free admission beginning at 5 p.m.
