[ARCHIVED] Mayor Frazier to Hold Listening Sessions on 2014 City Budget

Mayor Brett Frazier

Milton Mayor Brett Frazier is proud to announce a series of listening sessions he will hold throughout the City as he develops his executive budget which will be presented to the Common Council in October of 2013. “I want to hear from Milton residents and businesses as I work with staff to put together my executive budget that will be presented to the Council this fall,” stated Mayor Frazier.

Frazier went on to state, “We’ll have to make some tough choices to keep Milton affordable this year and every good idea should be on the table. That is why I would like to invite any citizen, as well as employees and Department managers to be an active part of these listening sessions."

The City begins its 2014 budget development process with an estimated $200,000 budget gap from last year’s tax levy that includes anticipated new debt and operational costs for an expanded police station and city administration building and an expanded Milton public library. Frazier has already directed staff to begin looking at finding ways to reduce operational costs that don’t negatively impact service provision and to increase non-tax revenue.

“My goal is to present to the Council a budget that delivers the services that our citizens expect and deserve and one that keeps the City of Milton an affordable place to live and do business. We can balance affordability with progress."

The first listening session will be held on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 at 6 p.m. at Milton City Hall, located at 430 E. High Street, in the upstairs meeting room.

For questions or concerns about the listening session, please contact City Administrator Jerry Schuetz at 608-868-6900 ext. 4, or via e-mail at jschuetz@milton-wi.gov .
