11/21/20230 COMMON COUNCIL VETO OVERRIDDEN

Minutes note: ---Consideration of those items vetoed by His Honor, Mayor Cavalier Johnson Ald. Dimitrijevic moved to dispense with the reading of the Mayor's veto message. There was no objection. Vetoed by His Honor, the Mayor, was the budget line in the 2024 budget for the One Milwaukee Citizen-Led Transformational Fund at $2,400,000, which was affected by Amendment 1A. Intent of the veto was to use the One Milwaukee Citizen-Led Transformation Fund instead of the tax levy to fund standalone Amendments 5A, 21, 22, and 39 with subsequent substitute action. The question was put: Shall the foregoing amendment be approved notwithstanding the objection of his honor, the Mayor? Ald. moved substitution of the 2024 Adopted Budget with the Mayor's substitute action to change the budget line for the One Milwaukee Citizen-led Transformational Fund to $2,130,152. Intent of the substitute action was to replace the property tax levy as the funding source to fund standalone Amendments 5A, 21, 22, and 39. Ald. Pratt moved adoption of the Mayor's substitute action.
