Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele Announces 2017 Budget Listening Sessions
“As we do the work of creating a responsible budget for the upcoming year, I look forward to hearing from the public”
The first session will take place on Monday, August 8th, from 5:30pm-7:30pm at the Wilson Park Senior Center located at 2601 W. Howard Ave., Milwaukee, and the second session will take place on Wednesday, August 10th, from 5:30-7:30pm at the Washington Park Senior Center located at 4420 W. Vliet St., Milwaukee.
This year, the community input sessions will be facilitated by the Zeidler Center in order to create a space for more meaningful feedback and discussion, and to make sure we can hear from as many people as possible. Each session will include facilitated small-group discussions intended to provide detailed feedback from each participant. The County has recently employed this format in public input sessions on the newly created Office on African American Affairs.
Members of the media and the public are invited to attend one or both of these sessions. If you are unable to attend but would still like to offer feedback, please contact the County Executive’s Office at email@example.com or (414) 278-4212.
NOTE: ADA accommodations request should be filed with the Milwaukee County Office for Persons with Disabilities, 278-3932 (voice) or 711 (TRS), upon receipt of this notice.
