Mayor Barrett’s Statement on Today’s Council Action

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett released the following statement after today’s Common Council meeting where the Mayor’s budget vetoes were addressed:

By - Nov 28th, 2017 11:23 am

“I am pleased the Council adopted over 95% of the budget I submitted. That’s good for City taxpayers and for the City’s fiscal stability.”

“I vetoed items that were financed with increased borrowing and funds from the salary and wage accounts. These actions should serve as an alert to City taxpayers that there are members of the Common Council who would rather satisfy their own agendas by adding to the debt and disrupting the delivery of City services than addressing the long term fiscal issues the City is facing.”
