Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley recently delivered his vision address highlighting the county's significant budget obstacles. Crowley explained that without any new spending, the county is estimating a budget gap of about $42 million this fiscal year with potential of reaching $60 million if the COVID-19 crisis persists. If Milwaukee County stays on this trajectory, the gap could reach $80 million in 2023 and $200 million by 2030. "We are prepared to weather this storm again this year utilizing our vision to become the healthiest county as our guide, but we are also clear-eyed that the only way to achieve our vision...is by securing a local long term funding solution," Crowley said.
