$108,000,000 +?

Is our Dane County Board just going to push through the $76 million budget line item for a new jail that will cost us $108 million?  They will if you don’t speak up, and soon!

Upcoming dates where you can testify:

Wednesday, November 1st, Health and Human Needs Committee – 5:30 room 357 (no agenda published yet)
Amendment for a restoration center, housing & housing services and more. Amendments won’t be available until late Monday or early Tuesday.

Wednesday, November 8th, Finance Committee
Amendments from the Public Protection and Judiciary and Health and Human Needs Committee will be presented and public testimony will be had.

Week of November 13th, Finance Committee
Will have their “uber amendment” where they decide what makes it in to the proposal that goes before the county board.

November 20th
County Board final vote on the budget – however they do not allow testimony for this meeting. Doesn’t mean we can’t attend and watch.
