Mayoral budget vetoes to be taken up at Common Council meeting on November 22


By - Nov 11th, 2022 12:31 pm

Today (Friday, November 11), Mayor Cavalier Johnson delivered a veto message for budget amendments adopted by the Common Council during its meeting on Friday, November 4.

“This is a process like any other. We did our part in adopting the City budget and the Mayor has now done his.  We look forward to reviewing his vetoes and continuing to work in the best interests of all residents,” said Common Council President José G. Pérez and Finance and Personnel Committee Chair Alderwoman Marina Dimitrijevic in response to the Mayor’s vetoes.

The Common Council will take up the Mayor’s budget vetoes at its next meeting at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, November 22. The vote will either sustain or override the vetoes, with a two-thirds majority required to override. If the vetoes are overridden, the 2023 City budget will be adopted as amended by the Common Council on November 4th. If the vetoes are sustained, another vote will be held for passage of what the Mayor has proposed, or for a new amendment to replace the vetoed line-items.

The Common Council meeting at 9 a.m. on November 22 can be streamed live on the City Channel (channel 25 on Spectrum Cable and channel 99 on AT&T U-Verse in the City of Milwaukee) and via streaming video on the city website at
