MILWAUKEE –Supervisor Patti Logsdon was one of four members of Milwaukee County Board to vote against a property tax increase on Tuesday when the Board met to finalize the 2020 county budget.

“Milwaukee County homeowners need tax relief, not a tax increase. We rely too much on property taxes and need to find another source of revenue for Milwaukee County,” said Logsdon.

The Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors voted 14-4 to increase the property tax levy from $294 million to $301 million Tuesday, an increase of about 2.28%, or $6.7 million.

Logsdon also voted against the final version of the 2020 county budget, which authorized expenditures of $1.18 billion.
