Move Forward MKE
Local governments in Milwaukee County, business leaders, and concerned citizens have come together to advance a solution to the fiscal challenges municipal and county governments face. Move Forward MKE is an effort to have the Wisconsin legislature authorize a one percent, local-option sales tax – a tax that would go into effect if approved in a referendum.
Mayor Tom Barrett will share his perspective on the effort. His 2020 city budget confronted a stark fiscal reality that required a reduction in the sworn strength of the Milwaukee Police Department by dozens of officers. He will provide an update on Move Forward MKE, its prospects in the state legislature, and how passage might change local governments’ fiscal situations.
