MILWAUKEE – On Monday, the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors held its annual public hearing on the Milwaukee County Budget. Forty Milwaukee County residents provided remarks on the budget to the full County Board.

Many members of the public showed support for a package of budget amendments authored by Supervisors Sequanna Taylor and Ryan Clancy. The amendments allocate funds to support reentry programs, housing support, youth programs, and other human needs initiatives.

“I would like to thank all the members of the public who joined us at the public hearing to share their priorities, concerns, and comments,” said Supervisor Taylor. “Moving past the budget season, I would like to continue seeing high levels of public input as we continue to push for the priorities clearly expressed by the community.”

“I’m grateful to the many community organizations and individuals who continue to make known your vision for our county, as well as the many co-sponsors these amendments had,” said Supervisor Clancy. “The amendments recommended by the Finance Committee yesterday are a step in the right direction towards funding the real needs of our community instead of ineffective, punitive measures.”

The County Board’s Finance Committee will hold its final budget amendment meeting on Wednesday, November 3 at 10 a.m. The meeting can be streamed via the County Legislative Information Center (CLIC).

Supervisors Taylor and Clancy encourage Milwaukee County residents to continue contacting their Supervisors to let them know their priorities for the 2022 Milwaukee County Budget. Residents can find their Supervisor’s contact information on the County Board website.

The Board of Supervisors will meet to adopt the annual budget on Monday, November 8.
