Milwaukee County 2018 Budget Update
Milwaukee County is facing some difficult choices with the 2018 budget, and there is the possibility of significant cuts to services. This is an important time to share your priorities with your county supervisor and to attend the October 30th Public hearing. Most County Supervisors have a newsletter and hold their own meetings to hear from constituents about budget priorities. Check out your supervisorsí web site and ask if they are hosting a budget listening session.
