Just in time for Halloween, the Waukesha city budget


It’s hard to read the city budget while Spongebob’s pet snail Gary is infected with Mad Snail Disease and is turning all of Bikini Bottom into zombies.  Yes, I’m married with children.  Fortunately, Darryl Enriquez has already given us a head start:

The overall tax levy is proposed to increase 6.43%,,  from more than $48.3 million this year to more than $51.4 for next year.

Luther explained part of levy increase was due to paying off more than $1 million in debt.

The city has a $359,063 court settlement to pay to Walgreens, a debt created by a dispute on property valuation and subsequent taxes.

Included in the proposal is a one-year freeze for all city workers. This does not look like a budget that gets a mayor re-elected.
