County Budget Update- Proposed Dept Budgets Are posted/ Transit Budget eliminates GO Pass

Mental Health Task Force Make It Work Milwaukee Update

The 2017 Milwaukee County Requested Budgets are now posted at We encourage you to review the budget requests and share your priorities with County Supervisors and County Executive Abele. County Supervisor information is available here:

  • We will be reviewing the posted budgets and preparing a high level description of any significant changes, new initiatives, concerns, etc. Based on a very quick initial review, the most significant change we have noted is the proposed elimination of the GO Pass which provides a free Bus Pass for people with disabilities who meet eligibility criteria, and older adults.

  • Be sure to attend tonight’s Budget Input Session at Washington Park Senior Center from 5:30 – 7:30 to share your priorities for the 2017 Milwaukee County Budget.

  • Plan to attend our August 23rd Budget Briefing at IndependenceFirst, at 540 S. 1st. , 1 – 3 PM. See attached flyer for details.
