Transportation Ballot Measures

Milwaukee, WI

Type: Advisory

Outcome: Loss

Results: Fail, 28%-72%

The Milwaukee County Board's finance committee has approved an advisory referendum question that would ask voters in the April 4, 2017, election whether they support the previously-proposed $60 registration fee per vehicle to help pay costs of transit services and transportation projects.  The board has already approved a $30 fee to move forward should voters vote against the $60 measure.  The $30 fee would generate nearly $13.5 million in revenue in 2017. The funds would be split with $11.5 million going to bus transit operating costs and $2 million to be spent on major transportation projects, according to budget documents.  However, the revenues from the diminished $30 fee (down from the recommended $60 fee) is said to be insufficient to meet growing transportation costs in the county.
