City budget deliberations begin Tuesday


MADISON (WKOW) -- The Madison Common Council begins its final budget deliberations Tuesday.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports Mayor Paul Soglin offered some changes to his $266 million plan. He's proposing more funding for the Overture Center, up to $1.35 million now, and eliminating an increase in bus fares.

Council members have countered with a plan that hikes Overture funding up to $1.75 million and also drops the bus fare increase.

You're invited to share your opinion during the budget hearing. Tuesday is the first of three potential hearings on the budget. Here is the list of meetings:

  • Tuesday, November 13 at 5:30 p.m.         Room 201, CCB
  • Wednesday, November 14 at 5:30 p.m.    Room 260, CCB (if needed)
  • Thursday, November 15 at 5:30 p.m.        Room 260, CCB (if needed)
