Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic’s October E-Newsletter: Special County Budget Edition!

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Fall has arrived with its cooler temperatures and beautiful colors. With fall comes budget season at the County Board. We will be considering a $1.3 billion budget proposal from the County Executive with public hearings throughout October, with the Board’s annual public budget hearing at 6:30 on November 3 at the Milwaukee Art Museum. The full Board will vote on a final budget on November 10.

In addition, Supervisor Jason Haas and I will hold a joint town hall meeting from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, October 20 at the Humboldt Park Pavilion, 3000 S. Howell Ave., Milwaukee.

Since elected in 2004, I have held over a hundred town hall meetings. In the upcoming month, the County Board will adopt the 2015 budget and take up the proposed sale of O’Donnell Park downtown to Northwestern Mutual. I look forward to receiving input directly from the people I represent.

In addition to the budget and O’Donnell Park, the Board will consider many other key issues in the coming weeks, including the proposed sale of the Downtown Transit Center to developer Rick Barrett for construction of a 44-story apartment building.

As always, if you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at 278–4282 or email me at

I look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks.
