CITY OF MILWAUKEE OPERATIONAL REVIEW
Updated November 13, 2023
The Greater Milwaukee Committee, a cross-sector consortium of local civic leaders, believes that the City’s fiscal sustainability is essential to both the well-being of Milwaukee residents and the economic vitality of the entire region. The GMC commissioned a detailed and comprehensive review to identify options to address immediate fiscal challenges and achieve long-term fiscal health. The GMC sought to uncover cost savings, enhance service delivery, and build on reforms undertaken over the last decade. This report represents the culmination of that effort.
The GMC is Milwaukee’s social innovation team, cultivating an equitable and thriving city. We engage local leaders and the community to collaboratively explore, create, and support impactful solutions to our most pressing civic and social issues.
