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 http://county.milwaukee.gov/PSB/County-Budget/2017-Budget-2/2017-Requested-Budget-.htm 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: http://county.milwaukee.gov/CountyBoard

  • 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.
