Balancing Act: Weigh in on Milwaukee County's Budget


Share Your Priorities

Milwaukee County’s annual budget shapes and directs how Milwaukee County works, funding critical services like housing, mental health and community support, emergency management and parks.

Transparency and accountability have been hallmarks of County Executive Crowley’s administration from the day he was sworn in. The Balancing Act tool offers a transparent look at the budget process, an opportunity to communicate community preferences on expenditure and revenue options, and a measure of accountability once the recommended budget is introduced by the County Executive and the final budget is signed in the fall.

This year Milwaukee County is starting with a budget gap of $12.6 million — and we need your help to close it. Show us how you would invest in important community services and balance Milwaukee County’s 2023 budget.

Balancing Act is expected to take less than 15 minutes to complete. This tool is also about building a more sustainable future, so all revenue options — both currently available and those that would require a change in state law — are on the table this year.

Let us know what you think, and show us how you would balance the budget!
