'Balancing Act:' Milwaukee County wants your input on ways to balance the $1.2B budget

MILWAUKEE -- For the third year in a row, Milwaukee County officials launched on Tuesday, July 16 an interactive online tool simulating the process to balance the 2020 budget. They call it "Balancing Act."

Users are asked to analyze the county's $1.2 billion operating budget and determine ways to close the county’s estimated $28 million budget gap.

"For years, we slashed spending and did more with less in order to build the foundation we need to succeed. Now, we are asking residents to get involved and help us make the hard decisions necessary to put  our fiscal house and priorities in order and continue building an even greater Milwaukee County."

The Balancing Act tool will be open for your review and submissions until mid-August.
