Mayor Tom Barrett has invited Milwaukee residents to join him, Budget Director Dennis Yaccarino and Alderman Michael Murphy for a hearing and presentation of the city’s 2021 budget. The hearing will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 26 from 5 to 7 p.m.
“The city’s finances remain challenged by State laws restricting funding of local government to primarily property taxes,” said Barrett in a statement. “Funding the priorities of our residents, no matter what they are, requires a new revenue source like the proposed 1% local sales tax.”
Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts during the meeting. Those who would like to attend the virtual meeting can register here.
