J ennifer,
I have a 2:45 meeting at Coggs today. I will likely leave straight from there and I
have my closing tomorrow so I'm off. However, I will be available by cell-phone.
Somehow, I've misplaced my blackberry (hopefully it is at home) but you can reach
me on my personal cell: 414 350 6585.

Cynthia,
Per your request, attached are the dollar amounts that a 15% employee
contribution would yield. These are based on our 2010 premium equivalent
rates. This would be across the board and did not make changes based on the
already settled RN labor agreement.
If you have any questions, please let Matt or I know.

Good Afternoon All,
Well, tomorrow is my last day with the gang at DAS-Fiscal. Thank you for the
CArcher_Journal3000007
appreciation card I received today. And thank you all for making my time here
meaningful and substantive.
I have been able to learn a great deal from each and every one of you in the
world of local government finance. Despite the time limitations most of you
faced, I was never turned away, even with my excessive questioning (sorry
J ohn).
As for now I will focus most of my attention on successfully completing my
second and last year of UWM's MPA program. I will still be searching for part-
time employment, so therefore, if any one has any leads, feel free to contact
me.
Sometime over the next two weeks we will meet up after work hours for drinks.
To be determined. Stay tuned!!!
If you need to contact me for any reason, I can be reached at (347) 233-8227
and at damiank.albert@gmail.com.
Signing off,
Damian Albert----- Forwarded by J ournaling Mail/IMSD/Milwaukee County on 12/01/2010 03:12 PM ---

Subject: Re: 2010 Recommended Budget Highlights
I'm assuming that you want a spreadsheet of the reduction in full-time
equivalents (FTE's) by department. We can get that to you by 1:00.
I have to make an important distinction. The table in the budget highlights
states there is a reduction of 393 FTE's. This is different than the number of
employees or the number of positions. Using FTE's is the most accurate way to
indicate the size and cost of the County's labor force, but the numbers for
positions and employees are slightly different. I recommend that you use the
393 number but refer to it as FTE's and not employees.
The 2010 budget assumes either 12 furlough days or 21 35 hour work weeks
for all County employees, except sheriff's deputies, correctional officers and

Archer

to: Bill Domina
09/23/2009
07:34 PM
I suspect we will get questions on the detail of the wage and benefit package in the CEX
budget. Specifically, how much each item saves. We just gave the total savings in the
budget since we felt the details of savings for each component should be disucssed in closed
session since we are embarking on concession bargaining. Do you agree? And if so, I will
tell the press that the details are a subject of bargaining and will be disucussed in closed
session.

Also, should I alert Cady and Finance Chair of this position?

Cindy,
I felt it was important to make sure that the final details were taken care of this
morning. Last year you had asked me to personally make sure that the
budgets were not delivered too early, so they were not being brought in to the
room by Board staff during the speech. I assumed that you would want me to
do the same this year.
I did stop in to the Board room during the speech. However there were a
number of citizens in the hallway who apparently couldn't get in to the room
and I thought it was more important that any available space be left for them.

Each of your budgets include proposals to privatize services or functions. We are required to
provide certain notifications to unions now that the board will contemplate these proposals.
To expedite this process and to ensure consistency, I have asked Barb to schedule a meeting
for tomorrow to review the requirements, provide a template notification letter and get
guidance from Greg Gracz on what is and what is not required. I have also asked Greg to
attend meetings you will be having with labor leadership on this topic once those are
scheduled. If you cannot attend tomorrow, I request that you send a representative.
Thanks

RE: Wage and Benefits for County Employees
This week I will be submitting my recommendations for the 2010 County Budget. As has
CArcher_Journal3000059
been widely reported, the County is facing significant fiscal challenges this year, next year
and for the foreseeable future if we fail to address the factors contributing to our structural
problems.
The 2010 budget process began with a projected gap of $90 million. Some of the primary
factors creating this gap are projected wage and benefit increases. In 2010 alone, employee
health care costs are projected to increase by more than $10 million; pension cost are
projected to increase in excess of $25 million. A report issued last week by the Financial
Forecasting work group that included DAS staff, County Board staff, a representative of the
Public Policy Forum and others indicates that the County will face a structural deficit of
almost $153 million by 2014 if the County fails to adopt sustainable structural changes that
address the factors driving our budget pressures. As noted in the report, without substantial
reform, fringe benefit costs alone will account for 20% of total county expenditures by
2014.
It is clear that structural reform is required to ensure the solvency of Milwaukee County. It is
also clear that meaningful reform must include an exhaustive review of all components of
Milwaukee Countys wage and benefit structure. In recognition of the rapid escalation in
employee benefit costs and the impact these cost have on our ability to provide services to
the citizens we represent, the County Board recently passed, and I signed, a resolution to
create a work group to examine the current employee/retiree benefit structure and develop
recommendations on methods and strategies to control these costs.
While I support this effort and understand that deliberate study is required when analyzing
certain types of potential benefit changes, I believe we can do more. We can take immediate
action now to curtail some aspects of our benefit costs. Further, I do not believe we should
limit reform to employee/retiree benefits. Meaningful reform must include changes to the
entire wage structure as well.
The 2010 Budget I will be submitting this week will include a number of policy
recommendations related to wage and benefit reform. I am request your careful
consideration of these initiatives for inclusion in the Countys collective bargaining process.

The budget gap faced by Milwaukee County for 2009 and the gap we faced in putting
together the 2010 budget are firm reminders that we cannot afford to maintain the current
wage and benefit levels for county employees. With this in mind, I believe there are
improvements that should be pursued now related to wages, employee contributions for
health care and pension cost and overtime provisions that exceed what is required by federal
law. Embracing these changes will insure the financial stability of Milwaukee County far
into the future.

[attachment "Address.doc" deleted by Cynthia Archer/DOA/Milwaukee County]
Chairman Holloway, members of the County Board,
Constitutional Officers, fellow citizens of Milwaukee
County, it is my honor to present our 2010 county budget.
Seven years ago, Milwaukee County was on the precipice
of financial and organizational meltdown. Since then,
despite constant challenges and formidable opposition,
we have had our share of successes in county
government.
Since taking office, we lowered the county debt by 10%
and reduced the taxpayer-funded workforce by more
than 20%. While Milwaukee Countys bond rating had a
negative outlook in 2002, Standard & Poor's recently
ranked the county financial practices as strong, and
CArcher_Journal3000063
Moodys attributed the improvement to strong
management and prudent budgetary controls.
How did we control government spending?
We told department heads how much money they would
have and asked them to prioritize spending based on
available revenue. Together, we crafted seven straight
budgets with no increase in the property tax levy from the
previous year. In 2008, when other state and local
governments faced massive budget shortfalls, Milwaukee
County finished the year with slight budget surplus.
And we did it without sacrificing quality.
The Milwaukee County Parks Department is a top finalist for
the prestigious 2009 National Gold Medal for Excellence
as the best park system in the country.
A recent state audit concluded that when compared to its
peers, the Milwaukee County Transit System consistently
delivers more rides for less cost, has the lowest per
passenger cost and the highest ridership per capita.
There are those who say we must either significantly raise
taxes to fund our priorities or impose massive cuts in
government service. But our choices arent limited to
raising taxes or cutting services. Greater innovation will
allow us to maintain essential government services without
sacrificing community assets that enhance our quality of
life.
General Mitchell International Airport is another award-
winning county asset. In 2008, Mitchell International served
a record 7.95 million passengers and received the
Transportation Safety Administrations Partnership Award.
Since 2002, we have invested $199 million dollars in airport
renovations and improvements without increasing the
property tax levy.
Now, looking forward, our budget has five major
CArcher_Journal3000064
objectives:
1. To make it more affordable for families to live and work
in Milwaukee County.
2. To create a better environment to retain and attract
new jobs.
3. To maintain a high quality of life for Milwaukee County
residents
4. To provide a balance between public and private
sector benefits
5. To enact major budget reforms to protect taxpayers
and ensure the long-term viability of county assets and
services.
__________________________________________________________
1. Afford to Live and Work in Milwaukee County
There has never been a more important time to commit to
the principles of limited government and fiscal
responsibility.
Our economy has been the subject of numerous
commentaries and reports. Without exception, the authors
agree that we need fundamental change to put our
economy back on track---
And the first order of business is to change the way
government does business.
We must be certain that what we do helps employers
maintain and grow jobs, rather than making it more
expensive for employers and families to make ends meet.
That is what weve done for seven years, and it is what we
will do again next year.
We know that it wont be easy. Since the beginning, weve
been engaged in perpetual battle with those who are
determined to maintain a status quo that Milwaukee
County families and employers can no longer afford.
CArcher_Journal3000065
And more families are struggling today than at any point in
recent history.
Today, I am joined by J ohn and Sue Smith. Like so many
families in our community, the Smiths work hard to pay the
bills, take care of their kids and prepare for the future.
They are concerned about the economy and about rising
costs.
And their concern is not without reason. This spring, the
state unemployment rate reached a 27-year high of more
than 9%, and that kept l foreclosure rates above 20%.
So today, for the eighth year in a row, I am presenting a
county budget that does not raise the property tax levy
from the previous year.
In addition to holding property taxpayers harmless, we will
not raise the sales tax or implement a wheel tax to fund
county government, as these taxes place an added
burden on struggling families and employers just as surely
as increases in the property tax and income tax do.
__________________________________________________________
2. Attract and retain jobs
Milwaukee County is blessed by the beauty of our great
lake and our pristine parks and trails. Our natural resources
combined with the ingenuity and strong work ethic of our
people, have made Milwaukee County --- and the state
of Wisconsin --- a great place to live, work, raise a family
and to retire in.
Our companies are recognized as world leaders in
everything from manufacturing motorcycles, to brewing
beer. Our people are famous for their midwestern work
ethic.
But too often we hear businesses say that government is
getting in the way, making it harder for employers of all
sizes to maintain and grow jobs right here.
CArcher_Journal3000066
Our 2010 budget includes an aggressive plan to retain and
attract jobs in Milwaukee County.

Milwaukee County Works, in the Executive Office of
Business Development, will partner with existing employers
and new businesses to foster economic development and
job growth.
In an effort to jumpstart our local economy, we will
accelerate the county building program, beginning $120
million in new projects by the end of 2010.
The plan includes; $50 million to rebuild highways bridges
and roads. Close to $20 million for new trucks, highway
maintenance vehicles and county fleet cars and vans,
and over $38 million for park improvements.
Richard Bub, the CEO of Graef is here today. His firm did
the engineering work on the David F. Schultz Aquatic
Center we opened this summer.
Some XX jobs were connected to that one job.
Accelerating three years worth of construction work into
the next 16 months will help folks like J ohn put more
people to work within Milwaukee County.
In fact, over 1,000 jobs will be created in order to complete
the more than 100 projects funded for 2010 in our
accelerated plan. In addition, we will save up to $3
million in interest expenses by utilizing the Build America
and Recovery zone bonding programs.
Recovery Zone Facility bonds are another tool to spur new
developments within Milwaukee County and to that end,
we set aside $18 million in these low interest rate bonds.
And we designate the entire county as a recovery
development zone.
Our investment in transit includes maintaining existing
routes and adding 125 new green and clean buses to the
fleet. To get people to and from work, the plan includes a
CArcher_Journal3000067
new Bus Rapid Transit line from the county grounds
through downtown Milwaukee to the UWM campus.
Last but not least, the plan includes major investment to
improve and expand capacity at General Mitchell
International Airport.
These are all important steps on the ladder of economic
recovery, but they are not enough. Our state leaders
must be part of the solution.
Today I am calling on the Governor and state lawmakers
to help us get Wisconsins economic engine humming
again, by adopting bold and immediate steps to improve
the states economic climate , and to reverse the
damage caused by years of deficit spending, and
excessive borrowing and taxation.
Governor Doyle and the members of the Legislature
should move to immediately repeal the job killing
Combined Reporting tax which was signed into law earlier
this year.
In February proponents of the Combined Reporting tax on
Wisconsin businesses told us it would not have a negative
impact on our employers.

If only their predictions were true. Unfortunately,
Combined
Reporting cost Milwaukee Countys own Harley Davidson
Motor Company $22.5 million in higher taxes and
contributed to a major decline in profits. This loss forced
Harley Davidson to lay off more than 400 workers.
Now is not the time to experiment with new taxes or to
take no action hoping the current trend will simply reverse
itself. Manufacturing jobs have been the mainstay of our
state and local economy for decades and we must do
everything in our power to keep and grow good paying
manufacturing jobs here.
CArcher_Journal3000068
3. Maintain Quality of Life
Our budget helps maintain the quality of life for Milwaukee
County residents.
It starts with our budget priorities to keep public safety
funding intact while fully funding - and in some cases
expanding funding - for safety net programs for low-
income families, children, veterans, and people with
disablities.
Significant capital improvements for the Sheriffs office are
included in our budget and I am honored to be joined by
Sheriff David Clarke, J r. here today. And our county- wide
Emergency Medical System is maintained with more
revenue available to local units of government.
In addition to maintaining safety net services for people
with disabilities, older adults and veterans, our plan
provides $4.8 million for the expansion of Family Care to
include people with developmental and physical
disabilities.
People like J ohn Smith are already signing up for the new
Family Care program. J ohn and his family are here
today.
And we are investing in our parks and recreation facilities
too.
Our budget includes three times as much for park
maintenance as in 2009 and more than $38 million for
capital projects including new bathroom facilities,
playground equipment and parkway improvements.
The budget also leverages a private donation to begin
work on a major aquatic center at Hoyt Park. For years,
Denise Lindberg and a wonderful group of volunteers have
raised funds through the Friends of Hoyt Park and Pool.
Their hard work caught the attention of XXX and XXX XXXX
who made an incredible donation. Others like Don and
CArcher_Journal3000069
Mary J o Layden helped lead the cause to raise the rest of
the funds. And I know that Supervisors Schmitt and DeBruin
know just how much work went into this project. This
budget invests the funds needed to break ground.
Plans for a fourth aquatics center in the southeast region of
the county are also underway. Once completed, we will
have a major aquatic center in every region of the
county. National research shows us that aquatic centers
and splash pads are what kids and families want and we
are ready to make a big splash.
Several deep well pools with declining clientele will be
replaced with more popular splash pads. We expect
these transitions to be as successful and as cost effective
as the other splash pads in the system - like Gordon Park.
And one of the most exciting initiatives in our plan is
funding for the creation of a non-profit organization to run
the Milwaukee County Zoo. Specifically the budget
creates a planning group to prepare the legal framework
for such a transition by October of 2011.
This new organization will combine the continued financial
investment and skill of the county, with the Zoological
Societys expertise in education and conservation.
Some may wonder why we need to improve the Zoo as it is
one of the best in the world today. The answer is simple:
we want it to remain a world-class zoo.
I want to thank Karen Peck Katz and the members of the
Milwaukee Zoological Society who are so committed to
the future success of the Zoo. They are very clear that
they want to work with the County Board and with our
administration to insure a great Zoo for generations to
come.

4. Create Balance between Public and Private Sector
Benefits
CArcher_Journal3000070
Probably the most critical part of this budget addresses the
need to create a balance between the benefits received
by public and private sector employees.
Today, over 48% of the county budget goes to fund wages
and benefits for county employees, --- and the cost of
benefits is growing at an alarming rate. Neither the
problem nor the proposed solutions are unique to
Milwaukee County.
Earlier this year, employees in Racine County agreed to a
wage freeze to avoid layoffs.
Last week, Manitowoc County Executive Bob Ziegelbauer
said he envisioned the need to lay off workers in every
area of county government after public employee
representatives rejected proposed wage and benefit
cuts.
With so many private sector workers in the county seeing
their wages and benefits frozen or cut to preserve jobs, it is
hard not to expect the same from those in government.
A survey just conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation
shows that the cost of providing health benefits for a family
now averages $13,375 per year, with employees paying
$3,515 and employers $9,860.
In contrast, the lowest priced option for family coverage at
the county costs $17,481 with county employees paying
$840 and the county government paying $16,641. In other
words, the average citizen pays $3,500 for his or her own
family plan and then pays taxes to cover more than
$16,000 for each county employee.
There has to be a balance between the public and private
sector benefits.
And while we have taken actions in the past to help
control costs, we must negotiate additional concessions
to help balance the escalating cost of public employee
benefits for taxpayers, now and in the future.
CArcher_Journal3000071
Without further action, Milwaukee County will become
insolvent.
And raising taxes on families and employers already
struggling to make ends meet is simply not an option I am
willing to consider.
__________________________________________________________
5. Enact Major Budget Reforms
Developing the budget for Milwaukee County is never an
easy task given the financial devastation caused by the
county pension deal of 2001. And even though the
county received a $45 million settlement from the
consulting firm that helped to design the disastrous
pension plan, taxpayers are still on the hook for this plan
for years to come.
Under no circumstances will we consider grabbing all of
the funds from the pension lawsuit settlement to balance
the upcoming budget or to otherwise fuel spending.
These monies must be used to protect taxpayers by
covering the long term unfunded liabilities associated with
the 2001 pension deal.
And we have included several significant budget reforms
aimed at improving the countys fiscal stability in the
future.
First, the proceeds from all county land sales will be used to
fund a limited number of one -time projects to pay down
the county debt.
Second, revenue projections from the use of county parks
are adjusted to more realistic levels.
Third, the budget lowers county sales tax projections to
reflect current economic trends.
Fourth, the budget expands the use of public-private
CArcher_Journal3000072
partnerships to leverage private sector funds for capital
improvements in the parks, the zoo and other cultural
institutions. Using tax dollars to leverage private
investments, these partnerships help improve the quality of
life for Milwaukee County residents while maximizing
taxpayer resources.
Each of these, along with the proposed reforms in wage
and benefit packages, will help the county to be financial
sustainable into the future.
These reforms address many of the major concerns raised
by the Public Policy Forum review of county finances
earlier this year. I want to thank Rob Henken for his hard
work and that project and for all of the work he and his
team do to support our community.
__________________________________________________________
Conclusion
Finally, let me remind you that the objectives of our
budget are simple:
1. Make it affordable to live and work in our county.
2. Create an environment to retain and attract jobs.
3. Maintain a high quality of life for our citizens.
4. Provide a balance between public and private
sector benefits.
5. Reform the budget process to insure that the county
is financially viable into the future.
Our budget balances the importance of maintaining vital
human services and investing in our future, with the need
to control the growth of government spending to reflect
the taxpayers ability to pay.
I look forward to working with each of you to make our
county stronger and more vibrant --- and an even better
place to live, work, raise a family and (ultimately) retire in.

Subject: Elizabeth Gilliam's tax withholdings
What we found:
In J une, 2009, Ms. Gilliam had tried to update her filing status in the self service module
of our payroll system. The update did not carryover to the payroll database.
The email Supervisor Coggs forwarded to you from Ms. Gilliam was the first Central
Payroll had become aware of the problem.
Actions taken:
Central Payroll has updated Ms. Gilliam's filing status and her next paycheck will reflect
these changes.
Central Payroll is investigating the reason why the updates did not carryover into the
payroll system to prevent this from happening in the future.
I left a message on Ms. Gilliam's home phone and sent an email to her to let her know
that her filing status has been updated and her next payroll check will be correct. I also
let her know to contact our Payroll Manager, Sue Drummond, directly if something
similar should happen in the future. I apologized for any inconvenience this may have
caused.
I talked with the Payroll Supervisor for BHD, Yvonne Makowski. I let her know that, in
the future, when employees have concerns regarding their paychecks that aren't getting
resolved to contact our Payroll Manager, Sue Drummond, directly for assistance.
If you have any other questions regarding this issue, please let me know.

One additional clarification. The budget does include $34 in capital projects for the
Parks Department. It also includes $4 million for parkways improvements budgeted
in DTPW. In the budget highlights we add the parkways to Parks and state that the
budget includes $38 million in parks improvements. To be consistent, we should
probably do the same here.

Is this information all correct?
Retain and attract jobs in Milwaukee County
County Executive Walkers 2010 county budget includes an aggressive plan
to retain and attract jobs in Milwaukee County. Milwaukee County
Works (County Executives Office of Business Development) will work with
existing and new businesses on ways to retain and create more jobs.
The plan also accelerates the county building program to begin $120 million
worth of projects by the end of 2010. These projects will rebuild the county
and include nearly $50 million for highways, bridges and roads; nearly $20
million for a new fleet initiative and over $34 million in parks improvements.
Recovery Zone Facility bonds are another tool outlined in the jobs plan that
will assist new developments within Milwaukee County.
To get people to and from work, the plan includes a new Bus Rapid Transit
line, maintains all existing bus routes and includes the funding for 125 new,
green and clean buses. The plan also includes major investments to
increase growth and improvements at General Mitchell International Airport.

Cindy,
At my direction and as we did last year, J ohn and the analysts are developing an
estimate of the number of employee lay offs that would result if the recommended
budget were implemented as is. As part of this research Toni called the Register of
Deeds to find out how many of the positions being eliminated as part of outsourcing
initiative are currently filled. When she asked the question she used the term
"abolished" instead of unfunded. The Register of Deeds expressed his concerns
about positions being abolished instead of unfunded. Toni sent me the e-mail
below.
During the budget briefings we recommended these positions be unfunded and
during his budget meeting with the CEX the Register of Deeds asked that they be
unfunded instead of abolished. According to my notes the CEX agreed that the
positions should be unfunded.
We will be sending down a memo with technical corrections to the budget before
the budget hearings start. I recommend that we change these positions from
abolished to unfunded as part of the technical corrections memo to be consistent
with the decision the CEX made during budget briefings.
Thanks.

Hi Steve,
J ust want to give you a heads up that the Register of Deeds will be contacting you
about his concern with unfunding the positions associated with their outsourcing
initiative as opposed to"abolishing" them. Cindy, mentioned in her edits to this
narrative that we should abolish all positions associated with outsourcing.
However, the ROD has expressed his concern that if their outsourcing initiative does
not work, it would be easier to hire for these positions if they are unfunded instead
of abolished, but they are listed as "abolished" in the narrative. I'm not sure how
to address this issue. Thanks!

DRAFT


To: Members of Personnel Committee



This week I will be submitting my recommendations for the 2010 County Budget. As
has been widely reported, the County is facing significant fiscal challenges this year, next
year and for the foreseeable future if we fail to address the factors contributing to our
structural problems.

The 2010 budget process began with a projected gap of $90 million. The primary factors
creating this gap were projected wage and benefit increases. In 2010 alone, employee
health care costs are projected to increase by more than $10 million; pension cost are
projected to increase in excess of $25 million. A report issued last week by the Financial
Forecasting workgroup that included DAS staff, County Board staff, a representative of
the Public Policy Forum and others indicates that the County will face a structural deficit
of almost $153 million by 2014 if the County fails to adopt sustainable structural
changes that address the factors driving our budget pressures. As noted in the report,
without substantial reform, fringe benefit costs alone will account for 20% of total county
expenditures by 2014.

It is clear that structural reform is required to ensure the solvency of Milwaukee County.
It is also clear that meaningful reform must include an exhaustive review of all
components of Milwaukee Countys wage and benefit structure. In recognition of the
rapid escalation in employee benefit costs and the impact these cost have on our ability to
provide services to the citizens we represent, the County Board recently passed, and I
signed, a resolution to create a workgroup to examine the current employee/retiree
benefit structure and develop recommendations on methods and strategies to control
these costs. While I supported this effort and understand that deliberate study is required
when analyzing certain types of potential benefit changes, I believe we can do more. We
can take immediate action now to curtail some aspects of our benefit costs. Further, I do
not believe we should limit reform to employee/retiree benefits. Meaningful reform must
include changes to the entire wage structure as well.

The 2010 Budget I will be submitting this week will include a number of policy
recommendations related to wage and benefit reform. As members of the Committee on
Personnel, I am requesting your careful consideration of these initiatives for inclusion in
the Countys collective bargaining process. I have refrained from making
recommendations that should most appropriately be studied by the employee benefit
workgroup, however, I believe there are improvements that should be pursued now
related to wages, employee contributions for health care and pension cost and overtime
provisions that exceed what is required by federal law.

CArcher_Journal3000091
NEED CLOSING PARAGRAPH DOES HE WANT TO COMMENT ON CURRENT
CONTRACTS





CArcher_Journal3000092
Chairman Holloway, members of the County Board,
Constitutional Officers and most importantly fellow
citizens of Milwaukee County, it is my honor to present
our 2010 county budget.

Seven years ago, Milwaukee County was on the
precipice of financial and organizational meltdown.
Since then, despite constant challenges and
formidable opposition, we have had our share of
successes in county government.

Since taking office, we lowered the county debt by
10% and reduced the taxpayer-funded workforce by
more than 20%. While Milwaukee Countys bond rating
had a negative outlook in 2002, Standard & Poor's
recently ranked the county financial practices as
strong, and Moodys attributed the improvement to
strong management and prudent budgetary
controls.

How did we control government spending?

We told department heads how much money they
would have and asked them to prioritize spending
based on available revenue. Together, we crafted
seven straight budgets with no increase in the property
tax levy from the previous year. In 2008, when other
state and local governments faced massive budget
shortfalls, Milwaukee County finished the year with slight
budget surplus.

And we did it without sacrificing quality.

CArcher_Journal3000093
The Milwaukee County Parks Department is a top finalist
for the prestigious 2009 National Gold Medal for
Excellence as the best park system in the country.

A recent state audit concluded that when compared
to its peers, the Milwaukee County Transit System
consistently delivers more rides for less cost, has the
lowest per passenger cost and the highest ridership per
capita.

There are those who say we must either significantly
raise taxes to fund our priorities or impose massive cuts
in government service. But our choices arent limited to
raising taxes or cutting services. Greater innovation will
allow us to maintain essential government services
without sacrificing community assets that enhance our
quality of life.

General Mitchell International Airport is another award-
winning county asset. In 2008, Mitchell International
served a record 7.95 million passengers and received
the Transportation Safety Administrations Partnership
Award. Since 2002, we have invested $199 million
dollars in airport renovations and improvements without
increasing the property tax levy.

Now, looking forward, our budget has five major
objectives:

1. To make it more affordable for families to live and
work in Milwaukee County.
2. To create a better environment to retain and attract
new jobs.
CArcher_Journal3000094
3. To maintain a high quality of life for Milwaukee
County residents
4. To provide a balance between public and private
sector benefits
5. To enact major budget reforms to protect taxpayers
and ensure the long-term viability of county assets and
services.
______________________________________________________
____

1. Afford to Live and Work in Milwaukee County

There has never been a more important time to commit
to the principles of limited government and fiscal
responsibility.

Our economy has been the subject of numerous
commentaries and reports. Without exception, the
authors agree that we need fundamental change to
put our economy back on track---

And the first order of business is to change the way
government does business.

We must be certain that what we do helps employers
maintain and grow jobs, rather than making it more
expensive for employers and families to make ends
meet.

That is what weve done for seven years, and it is what
we will do again next year.

We know that it wont be easy. Since the beginning,
CArcher_Journal3000095
weve been engaged in perpetual battle with those
who are determined to maintain a status quo that
Milwaukee County families and employers can no
longer afford.

And more families are struggling today than at any
point in recent history.

This spring, the state unemployment rate reached a 27-
year high of more than 9%, and that kept l foreclosure
rates above 20%.

So today, for the eighth year in a row, I am presenting a
county budget that does not raise the property tax levy
from the previous year.

In addition to holding property taxpayers harmless, we
will not raise the sales tax or implement a wheel tax to
fund county government, as these taxes place an
added burden on struggling families and employers just
as surely as increases in the property tax and income
tax do.
______________________________________________________
____

2. Attract and retain jobs

Milwaukee County is blessed by the beauty of our
great lake and our pristine parks and trails. Our natural
resources combined with the ingenuity and strong work
ethic of our people, have made Milwaukee County ---
and the state of Wisconsin --- a great place to live,
work, raise a family and to retire in.
CArcher_Journal3000096

Our companies are recognized as world leaders in
everything from manufacturing motorcycles, to
brewing beer. Our people are famous for their
midwestern work ethic.

But too often we hear businesses say that government
is getting in the way, making it harder for employers of
all sizes to maintain and grow jobs right here.

Our 2010 budget includes an aggressive plan to retain
and attract jobs in Milwaukee County.

Milwaukee County Works, in the Executive Office of
Business Development, will partner with existing
employers and new businesses to foster economic
development and job growth.

In an effort to jumpstart our local economy, we will
accelerate the county building program, beginning
$120 million in new projects by the end of 2010.

The plan includes; $50 million to rebuild highways
bridges and roads. Close to $20 million for new trucks,
highway maintenance vehicles and county fleet cars
and vans, and over $34 million for park improvements.

Recovery Zone Facility bonds are another tool to spur
new developments within Milwaukee County and to
that end, we set aside $18 million in these low interest
rate bonds. And we designate the entire county as a
recovery development zone.

CArcher_Journal3000097
Our investment in transit includes maintaining existing
routes and adding 125 new green and clean buses to
the fleet. To get people to and from work, the plan
includes a new Bus Rapid Transit line from the county
grounds through downtown Milwaukee to the UWM
campus.

Last but not least, the plan includes major investment to
improve and expand capacity at General Mitchell
International Airport.

These are all important steps on the ladder of
economic recovery, but they are not enough. Our
state leaders must be part of the solution.

Today I am calling on the Governor and state
lawmakers to help us get Wisconsins economic engine
humming again, by adopting bold and immediate
steps to improve the states economic climate , and to
reverse the damage caused by years of deficit
spending, and excessive borrowing and taxation.

Governor Doyle and the members of the Legislature
should move to immediately repeal the job killing
Combined Reporting tax which was signed into law
earlier this year.

In February proponents of the Combined Reporting tax
on Wisconsin businesses told us it would not have a
negative impact on our employers.

If only their predictions were true. Unfortunately,
Combined
CArcher_Journal3000098
Reporting cost Milwaukee Countys own Harley
Davidson Motor Company $22.5 million in higher taxes
and contributed to a major decline in profits. This loss
forced Harley Davidson to lay off more than 400
workers.

Now is not the time to experiment with new taxes or to
take no action hoping the current trend will simply
reverse itself. Manufacturing jobs have been the
mainstay of our state and local economy for decades
and we must do everything in our power to keep and
grow good paying manufacturing jobs here.


3. Maintain Quality of Life

Our budget helps maintain the quality of life for
Milwaukee County residents.

It starts with our budget priorities to keep public safety
funding intact while fully funding - and in some cases
expanding funding - for safety net programs for low-
income families, children, veterans, and people with
disablities.

Significant capital improvements for the Sherriffs and
District Attorneys offices are also included and our
county- wide Emergency Medical System is maintained
with more revenue available to local units of
government.

In addition to maintaining safety net services for people
with disabilities, older adults and veterans, our plan
CArcher_Journal3000099
provides $4.8 million for the expansion of Family Care to
include people with developmental and physical
disabilities.

And we are investing in our parks and recreation
facilities too.

Our budget includes three times as much for park
maintenance as in 2009 and more than $34 million for
capital projects including new bathroom facilities,
playground equipment and parkway improvements.

The budget also leverages a private donation to begin
work on a major aquatic center at Hoyt Park. Plans for
a fourth aquatics center in the southwest region of the
county are also underway.

Several deep well pools with declining clientele will be
replaced with more popular splash pads. We expect
these transitions to be as successful and as cost
effective as the other splash pads in the system - like
Gordon Park.

And one of the most exciting initiatives in our plan is
funding for the creation of a non-profit organization to
run the Milwaukee County Zoo. Specifically the budget
creates a planning group to prepare the legal
framework for such a transition by October of 2011.

This new organization will combine the continued
financial investment and skill of the county, with the
Zoological Societys expertise in education and
conservation.
CArcher_Journal3000100
______________________________________________________
____

4. Create Balance between Public and Private
Sector Benefits

Probably the most critical part of this budget addresses
the need to create a balance between the benefits
received by public and private sector employees.

Today, over 48% of the county budget goes to fund
wages and benefits for county employees, --- and the
cost of benefits is growing at an alarming rate. Neither
the problem nor the proposed solutions are unique to
Milwaukee County.

Earlier this year, employees in Racine County agreed to
a wage freeze to avoid layoffs.

Last week, Manitowoc County Executive Bob
Ziegelbauer said he envisioned the need to lay off
workers in every area of county government after
public employee representatives rejected proposed
wage and benefit cuts.

With so many private sector workers in the county
seeing their wages and benefits frozen or cut to
preserve jobs, it is hard not to expect the same from
those in government.

While we have taken actions in the past to help control
costs, we must negotiate additional concessions to
help balance the escalating cost of public employee
CArcher_Journal3000101
benefits for taxpayers, now and in the future.

Without further action, Milwaukee County will become
insolvent.

And raising taxes on families and employers already
struggling to make ends meet is simply not an option I
am willing to consider.
______________________________________________________
____

5. Enact Major Budget Reforms

Developing the budget for Milwaukee County is never
an easy task given the financial devastation caused by
the county pension deal of 2001. And even though the
county received a $45 million settlement from the
consulting firm that helped to design the disastrous
pension plan, taxpayers are still on the hook for this plan
for years to come.

Under no circumstances will we consider grabbing all
of the funds from the pension lawsuit settlement to
balance the upcoming budget or to otherwise fuel
spending. These monies must be used to protect
taxpayers by covering the long term unfunded liabilities
associated with the 2001 pension deal.

And we have included several significant budget
reforms aimed at improving the countys fiscal stability
in the future.

First, the proceeds from all county land sales will be
CArcher_Journal3000102
used to fund a limited number of one -time projects to
pay down the county debt.

Second, revenue projections from the use of county
parks are adjusted to more realistic levels.

Third, the budget lowers county sales tax projections to
reflect current economic trends.

Fourth, the budget expands the use of public-private
partnerships to leverage private sector funds for capital
improvements in the parks, the zoo and other cultural
institutions. Using tax dollars to leverage private
investments, these partnerships help improve the
quality of life for Milwaukee County residents while
maximizing taxpayer resources.
______________________________________________________

Conclusion

Finally, let me remind you that the objectives of our
budget are simple:

1. Make it affordable to live and work in our county.
2. Create an environment to retain and attract jobs.
3. Maintain a high quality of life for our citizens.
4. Provide a balance between public and private
sector benefits.
5. Reform the budget process to insure that the county
is financially viable into the future.

CArcher_Journal3000103

Our budget balances the importance of maintaining
vital human services and investing in our future, with the
need to control the growth of government spending to
reflect the taxpayers ability to pay.

I look forward to working with each of you to make our
county stronger and more vibrant --- and an even
better place to live, work, raise a family and (ultimately)
retire in.

September 22, 2009

To: Lee Holloway, Chairman, County Board of Supervisors

From: Scott K. Walker, County Executive

Subject: 2009 Corrective Action

Earlier today I met with staff from the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) to review
2009 fiscal projections and potential reductions to departmental budgets. Cabinet department
directors were asked to submit reduction plans by last Friday to address a projected County-wide
deficit of $6.2 million. Based on the information I received at this meeting, I directed DAS to
implement approximately $3.1 million in cabinet department budget reductions that will have no
direct impact on services provided to the public. These reductions will not result in any employee
layoffs.

However additional action is necessary to close the remaining gap. Last week I asked the Board
to consider implementation of a 35-hour workweek for four weeks in order to reduce the deficit by
$1.3 million. The 35-hour workweek would apply to all represented and non-represented
employees, except deputy sheriffs, and correctional officers and health care personnel in the
House of Correction and the Office of the Sheriff.

In addition, I believe it will be necessary to implement five furlough days for all non-represented
employees. The furlough days would apply to all departments and would have to be taken by
December 26, 2009. DAS estimates five furlough days applied to all non-represented employees
would reduce the deficit by $750,000.

Finally, I have directed DAS to work with the Department of Transportation and Public Works and
the Parks Department to utilize 14 individuals who are currently in Park Maintenance Worker 2
positions as temporary Highway Maintenance Workers. The Park Maintenance Worker 2
positions, who hold commercial driver licenses, will assist with snow and ice control operations
from November through March. In April, these employees will return to their previous positions in
the Parks Department. This initiative will reduce the Countys projected 2009 deficit by $100,000.


I am requesting that the County Board schedule a special meeting of the Finance & Audit
Committee as soon as possible to consider the implementation of 35-hour workweeks for four
weeks for employees as well as five furlough days for non-represented employees in both
constitutional and non-constitutional departments. Taking these actions quickly will not only
contribute to a reduction in the Countys 2009 deficit, but also create more flexibility for managers
to reduce any impact these cuts would have on services and on County employees.


CArcher_Journal3000105
Chairman Holloway, members of the County Board,
Constitutional Officers, fellow citizens of Milwaukee County,
it is my honor to present our 2010 county budget.

Seven years ago, Milwaukee County was on the precipice
of financial and organizational meltdown. Since then,
despite constant challenges and formidable opposition, we
have had our share of successes in county government.

By 2012 we will have lowered the Countys outstanding debt
by 28% from 2002 levels and Since taking office, we lowered
the county debt by 10% and reduced the taxpayer-funded
County workforce by more than 20%. While Milwaukee
Countys bond rating had a negative outlook in 2002,
Standard & Poor's recently ranked the county financial
practices as strong, and Moodys attributed the
improvement to strong management and prudent

How did we control government spending?

Today, I am joined by J ohn and Sue Smith. Like so many
families in our community, the Smiths work hard to pay the
bills, take care of their kids and prepare for the future. They
are concerned about the economy and about rising costs.

And their concern is not without reason. This spring, the
state unemployment rate reached a 27-year high of more

20%.

and attract jobs in Milwaukee County.

Milwaukee County Works, in the Executive Office of Business
Development, will partner with existing employers and new
businesses to foster economic development and job
growth.

In an effort to jumpstart our local economy, this budget we
will accelerates the county building program by , beginning
$120 million in new projects by the end of 2010.

The plan includes; $38.6 50 million to rebuild highways
bridges and roads; $142 million in Airport improvements; .
Close to $20 million for new trucks, highway maintenance
vehicles and county fleet cars and vans, and over $38
million for park improvements and $______ for county facility
upgrades.

Richard Bub, the CEO of Graef is here today. His firm did the
engineering work on the David F. Schultz Aquatic Center we
opened this summer.

CArcher_Journal3000110
Some XX jobs were connected to that one job.
Accelerating three years worth of construction work into the
next 16 months will help folks like J ohn put more people to
work within Milwaukee County.

In fact, over 1,000 jobs will be created in order to complete
the more than 100 projects funded for 2010 in the our
accelerated capital plan I am proposing today. In
addition, we will save up to $3 million in interest expenses by
utilizing the Build America and Recovery zone bonding
programs.

Recovery Zone Facility bonds are another tool to spur new
private sector developments within Milwaukee County by
making low interest loans available for businesses looking to
expand factories, offices or other facilities within Milwaukee
County. To that end we will seek to use up to $18 million in
these new low interest rate bonds for business development
and expansion in Milwaukee County. Today, you as the
County Board, will have the opportunity to designate the
entire County as a recovery development zone by
approving legislation submitted earlier this month to the
Finance and Audit Committee. and to that end, we set
aside $18 million in these low interest rate bonds. And we
designate the entire county as a recovery development
zone.

The budget I am submitting today maintains oOur
investment in transit all routes are maintained and funding
is included to add includes maintaining existing routes and
adding 125 new green and clean buses to the fleet.
Further, tTo get people to and from work, the budget plan
includes a new Bus Rapid Transit line from the county
CArcher_Journal3000111
grounds through downtown Milwaukee to the UWM
campus.

Last but not least, the my budget plan includes major
investment to improve and expand capacity at General
Mitchell International Airport.

These are all important steps on the ladder of economic
recovery, but they are not enough. Our state leaders must
be part of the solution.

Today I am calling on the Governor and state lawmakers to
help us get Wisconsins economic engine humming again,
by adopting bold and immediate steps to improve the
states economic climate , and to reverse the damage
caused by years of deficit spending, and excessive
borrowing and taxation.

Governor Doyle and the members of the Legislature should
move to immediately repeal the job killing Combined
Reporting tax which was signed into law earlier this year.

In February proponents of the Combined Reporting tax on
Wisconsin businesses told us it would not have a negative
impact on our employers.

If only their predictions were true. Unfortunately, Combined
Reporting cost Milwaukee Countys own Harley Davidson
Motor Company $22.5 million in higher taxes and
contributed to a major decline in profits. This loss forced
Harley Davidson to lay off more than 400 workers.

Now is not the time to experiment with new taxes or to take
CArcher_Journal3000112
no action hoping the current trend will simply reverse itself.
Manufacturing jobs have been the mainstay of our state
and local economy for decades and we must do
everything in our power to keep and grow good paying
manufacturing jobs here.


3. Maintain Quality of Life

My 2010 Budget will Our budget helps maintain the quality
of life for Milwaukee County residents.

It starts with key our budget priorities -- to keep public
safety funding intact while fully funding - and in some cases
expanding funding - for safety net programs for low-income
families, children, veterans, and people with disablities.

Significant capital improvements for the Office of the Sheriff
and the House of Corrections Sheriffs office are included in
this our budget and I am honored to be joined by Sheriff
David Clarke, J r. here today. And our county- wide
Emergency Medical System is maintained with more
revenue available to local units of government.

In addition to maintaining safety net services for people with
disabilities, older adults and veterans, the budget our plan
provides $4.58 million for the expansion of Family Care to
include people with developmental and physical
disabilities.

People like J ohn Smith are already signing up for the new
Family Care program. J ohn and his family are here today.
CArcher_Journal3000113

And this budget maintains our investment we are investing
in our parks and recreation facilities too.

The Our budget includes three times as much for park
maintenance as in 2009 and more than $38 million for
capital projects including new bathroom facilities,
playground equipment and parkway improvements.

The budget also leverages a private donation to begin work
on a major aquatic center at Hoyt Park. For years, Denise
Lindberg and a wonderful group of volunteers have raised
funds through the Friends of Hoyt Park and Pool.

Their hard work caught the attention of XXX and XXX XXXX
who made an incredible donation. Others like Don and
Mary J o Layden helped lead the cause to raise the rest of
the funds. And I know that Supervisors Schmitt and DeBruin
know just how much work went into this project. This budget
invests the funds needed to break ground.

Plans for a fourth aquatics center in the southeast region of
the county are also underway. Once completed, we will
have a major aquatic center in every region of the county.
National research shows us that aquatic centers and splash
pads are what kids and families want and we are ready to
make a big splash.

Several deep well pools with excessively high cost per user
declining clientele will be replaced with more popular and
cost effective splash pads. We expect these transitions to
be as successful and as cost effective as the other splash
pads in the system - like Gordon Park.
CArcher_Journal3000114

And one of the most exciting initiatives in the budget I am
proposing today our plan is funding for the creation of a
non-profit organization to run the Milwaukee County Zoo.
Specifically the budget creates a planning group to
prepare the legal framework for such a transition by
October of 2011.

This new organization will combine the continued financial
investment and skill of the county, with the Zoological
Societys expertise in education and conservation.

Some may wonder why we need to improve the Zoo as it is
one of the best in the world today. The answer is simple: we
want it to remain a world-class zoo.

I want to thank Karen Peck Katz and the members of the
Milwaukee Zoological Society who are so committed to the
future success of the Zoo. They are very clear that they
want to work with the County Board and with our
administration to insure a great Zoo for generations to come.
__________________________________________________________

4. Create Balance between Public and Private Sector
Employee Benefits

Probably the most critical part of this budget addresses the
need to create a balance between the benefits received
by public and private sector employees.

Today, over 48% of the county budget goes to fund wages
and benefits for county employees, --- and the cost of
benefits is growing at an alarming rate. Neither the problem
CArcher_Journal3000115
nor the proposed solutions are unique to Milwaukee County.

Earlier this year, employees in Racine County agreed to a
wage freeze to avoid layoffs. Be careful you will not make
this trade!

Last week, Manitowoc County Executive Bob Ziegelbauer
said he envisioned the need to lay off workers in every area
of county government after public employee
representatives rejected proposed wage and benefit cuts.

With so many private sector workers in the county seeing
their wages and benefits frozen or cut to preserve jobs, it is
hard not to expect the same from those in government.

A survey just conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation
shows that the cost of providing health benefits for a family
now averages $13,375 per year, with employees paying
$3,515 and employers $9,860.

In contrast, the lowest priced option for family coverage at
the county costs $17,481 with county employees paying
$840 and the county government paying $16,641. In other
words, the average citizen pays $3,500 for his or her own
family plan and then pays taxes to cover more than $16,000
for each county employee.

There has to be a balance between the public and private
sector benefits.

And while we have taken actions in the past to help control
costs, we must negotiate additional concessions to help
balance the escalating cost of public employee benefits for
CArcher_Journal3000116
taxpayers, now and in the future.

Without further action, Milwaukee County will become
insolvent.

And raising taxes on families and employers already
struggling to make ends meet is simply not an option I am
willing to consider.
__________________________________________________________

5. Enact Major Budget Reforms

Developing the budget for Milwaukee County is never an
easy task given the financial devastation caused by the
county pension deal of 2001. And even though the county
received a $45 million settlement from the consulting firm
that helped to design the disastrous pension plan, taxpayers
are still on the hook for this plan for years to come.

Under no circumstances will Iwe consider grabbing all of the
funds from the pension lawsuit settlement to balance the
upcoming budget or to otherwise fuel spending. These
monies must be used to protect taxpayers by covering the
long term unfunded liabilities associated with the 2001
pension deal.

And we have included several significant budget reforms
aimed at improving the countys fiscal stability in the future.

First, the proceeds from all county land sales will be used to
fund a limited number of one -time projects to avoid issuing
additional pay down the county debt. This needs more
work what about debt service reserve to pay down debt.
CArcher_Journal3000117
[KRELOW]

Second, revenue projections from the use of county parks
are adjusted to more realistic levels.

Third, the budget lowers county sales tax projections to
reflect current economic trends.

Fourth, the budget expands the use of public-private
partnerships to leverage private sector funds for capital
improvements in the parks, the zoo and other cultural
institutions. Using tax dollars to leverage private investments,
these partnerships help improve the quality of life for
Milwaukee County residents while maximizing taxpayer
resources.

Each of these, along with the proposed reforms in wage and
benefit packages, will help the county to be financial
sustainable into the future.

These reforms address many of the major concerns raised
by the Public Policy Forum review of county finances earlier
this year. I want to thank Rob Henken for his hard work and
that project and for all of the work he and his team do to
support our community.
__________________________________________________________

Conclusion

Finally, let me remind you that the objectives of this our
budget are simple:

1. Make it affordable to live and work in our county.
CArcher_Journal3000118
2. Create an environment to retain and attract jobs.
3. Maintain a high quality of life for our citizens.
4. Provide a balance between public and private sector
employee benefits.
5. Reform the budget process to insure that the county is
financially viable into the future.


This Our budget balances the importance of maintaining
vital human services and investing in our future, with the
need to control the growth of government spending to
reflect the taxpayers ability to pay.

I look forward to working with each of you to make our
county stronger and more vibrant --- and an even better
place to live, work, raise a family and (ultimately) retire in.

CArcher_Journal3000119
Chairman Holloway, members of the County Board,
Constitutional Officers, fellow citizens of Milwaukee County,
it is my honor to present our 2010 county budget.

Seven years ago, Milwaukee County was on the precipice
of financial and organizational meltdown. Since then,
despite constant challenges and formidable opposition, we
have had our share of successes in county government.

By 2012 we will have lowered the Countys outstanding debt
by 28% from 2002 levels and Since taking office, we lowered
the county debt by 10% and reduced the taxpayer-funded
County workforce by more than 20%. While Milwaukee
Countys bond rating had a negative outlook in 2002,
Standard & Poor's recently ranked the county financial
practices as strong, and Moodys attributed the
improvement to strong management and prudent
budgetary controls.

How did we control government spending?

We told department heads how much money they would
have and asked them to prioritize spending based on
available revenue. Under my Administration we have held
the line on property taxes and in Together, we crafted
seven straight budgets with no increase in the property tax
levy from the previous year. In 2008, when other state and
local governments faced massive budget shortfalls,
Milwaukee County finished the year with slight budget
surplus.

And we did it without sacrificing quality.

CArcher_Journal3000120
The Milwaukee County Parks Department is a top finalist for
the prestigious 2009 National Gold Medal for Excellence as
the best park system in the country.

A recent state audit concluded that when compared to its
peers, the Milwaukee County Transit System consistently
delivers more rides for less cost, has the lowest per
passenger cost and the highest ridership per capita.

There are those who say we must either significantly raise
taxes to fund our priorities or impose massive cuts in
government service. But our choices arent limited to raising
taxes or cutting services. Greater innovation will allow us to
maintain essential government services without sacrificing
community assets that enhance our quality of life.

General Mitchell International Airport is another award-
winning county asset. In 2008, Mitchell International served a
record 7.965 million passengers and received the
Transportation Safety Administrations Partnership Award.
Since 2002, we have invested $199 million dollars in airport
renovations and improvements without increasing the
property tax levy.

Now, looking forward, the budget I am sending you today
our budget has five major objectives:

1. To make it more affordable for families to live and work in
Milwaukee County.
2. To create a better environment to retain and attract new
jobs.
3. To maintain a high quality of life for Milwaukee County
residents
CArcher_Journal3000121
4. To provide a balance between public and private sector
employee benefits
5. To enact major budget reforms to protect taxpayers and
ensure the long-term viability of county assets and services.

1. Afford to Live and Work in Milwaukee County

There has never been a more important time to commit to
the principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility.

Our economy has been the subject of numerous
commentaries and reports. Without exception, the authors
agree that we need fundamental change to put our
economy back on track---

And the first order of business is to change the way
government does business.

We must be certain that what we do helps employers
maintain and grow jobs, rather than making it more
expensive for employers and families to make ends meet.

That is what weve done for seven years, and it is what we
will do again next year.

We know that it wont be easy. Since the beginning, weve
been engaged in perpetual battle with those who are
determined to maintain a status quo that Milwaukee
County families and employers can no longer afford.

And more families are struggling today than at any point in
recent history.
CArcher_Journal3000122

Today, I am joined by J ohn and Sue Smith. Like so many
families in our community, the Smiths work hard to pay the
bills, take care of their kids and prepare for the future. They
are concerned about the economy and about rising costs.

And their concern is not without reason. This spring, the
state unemployment rate reached a 27-year high of more
than 9%, and that kept l foreclosure rates rose to above
20%.

So today, for the eighth year in a row, I am presenting a
county budget that does not raise the property tax levy
from the previous year.

In addition to holding property taxpayers harmless, this
budget does not rely on increased sales taxes or
implementation of a new we will not raise the sales tax or
implement a wheel tax to fund county government.
Increasing these taxes places, as these taxes place an
added burden on struggling families and employers just as
surely as increases in the property tax and income tax do.

2. Attract and retain jobs

Milwaukee County is blessed by the beauty of our great
lake and our pristine parks and trails. Our natural resources
combined with the ingenuity and strong work ethic of our
people, have made Milwaukee County --- and the state of
Wisconsin --- a great place to live, work, raise a family and
to retire in.

CArcher_Journal3000123
Our companies are recognized as world leaders in
everything from manufacturing motorcycles, to brewing
beer. Our people are famous for their midwestern work
ethic.

But too often we hear businesses say that government is
getting in the way, making it harder for employers of all sizes
to maintain and grow jobs right here.

My Our 2010 budget includes an aggressive plan to retain
and attract jobs in Milwaukee County.

Milwaukee County Works, in the Executive Office of Business
Development, will partner with existing employers and new
businesses to foster economic development and job
growth.

vehicles and county fleet cars and vans, and over $38

county facility upgrades.

Not without the CEX approval. If it is discussed at all, I would not go into detail but rather have the CEX mention that there will be an initiative. About the same level as he has done in paper. He told me he does not want
the detail on this to come out until his speech. Let the CEX Office take the lead.

Cc: Thomas GNardelli, TimRussell
One thing you might go over at cabinet is the status of 2009 budget deficit and reduction plans. Again, I would not speculate on how the CEX will deal with the proposed cuts but rather let the cabinet know that we have
requested authority for reduced workweek and that we will be reviewing reduction plans with CEX in the morning. I question rather the CEX will be able to make decisions on reduction plans by Wed AM given the probable
impacts so I would not commit that the CEX will announce decisions until we meet with himin AM. He may want to delay making final decisions until early next week. Something we will talk to himabout in AM.

We just received a call from Vera Westphal indicating she had some
concerns about the language in the zoo narrative related to the
transition of the zoo to a 501(c)3. I believe that Cindy and Vera are
working on this - but I used the same language in the Park, Rec and
Culture highlights, so we'll need to make sure we make any changes in
both places before anything is released.
Thanks.

I would list examples of the capital items for cultural and the Zoo so the CEX get
credit for actual improvements and I would take out all the detail on the steering
committee, etc related to the non profit corporation for the Zoo. Too much detail for
press.

Does the 34 million for parks include the 20 million for aquatics or is it in addition?

A draft of the Parks Highlights is attached. It includes all of the items in the CEX's e-
mail and all of yours except the addition of levy to replace revenue. I think that is a
difficult to understand technical issue and begs the question of why revenues were
budgeted incorrectly in the first place.

Vera left message that she is concerned about the effecitve date related to creation
of the nonprofit corporation. Both the CEX and Nardelli personally approved this
narrative. I specifically asked the CEX if he wanted to take the effective date out
given the language the Zoological society inserted. He said leave the date in. The
narrative is final.

Attached is the narrative for the 2010 Property taxes. You should be
aware that once we spread the wage and benefit reductions, the levy
for the Sheriff's department will show a decrease of $3,752,443. The
levy for the County Executive's Office decreases $41,660 and the levy
for the County Board Office decreased $174,454. These reductions
are due entirely to the spread of the wage and benefit package.
Without the wage and benefit package the levy for all three of the
above would have increased.
The narratives for each department will indicate the levy impact
associated with the wage and benefit package.

The narratives for each department will indicate the levy impact associated with the
wage and benefit package.

Property tax narrative is technical so I can't really weigh in on it so
proceed. It is what it is.

This is a follow up to my previous email related to the impact of the
wage and benefit adjustments on levy for each department. Attached
is a sheet that illustrates for each department the 2009 levy compared
to the 2010 levy. The last column illustrates how much of the 2010 tax
levy decrease is due to the wage and benefit package. For the few
departments that show levy increase in 2010 (e.g., Courts, DHSS) the
levy would have been higher by the amount of the wage and benefit
numbers had we not had the wage and benefit reductions.
This is just for your information in the event you get asked about
certain departments and why levy went down.

I do. Sup. Coggs had requested some sort of clearinghouse so that departments that
"needed things" could possibly hook up with departments that had "extra" of those
items. Kreklow told me that we (IMSD) might be able to set up something on the
Intranet as a "Wanted" Bulletin Board where departments could list needs and
others could possibly assist. I'm not sure how helpful it would be, but that's the type
of thing that I believe she is looking for.

Dear Director Archer,
During a summer Finance and Audit Committee Meeting, a request or
maybe a motion for your department to make a listing of department
resources so departments can share or a wish list. We are having a
CArcher_Journal3000167
combined Finance and Audit Meeting next week, I will have a separate
meeting after the combined meeting that day, September 23, 2009.
Please report to the report as soon as possible this agenda item.
Thanks.

Unless there is objection by others, I think it might be better to begin the last line on

A draft of the Parks Highlights is attached. It includes all of the items in the CEX's e-

Tom and Tim asked me to touch base with you on this inquiry. A reporter is doing an article on the
county executive and read that he "decreased annual debt flow by 36% and county debt by 10%"
He wants to know what the annual debt flow is. I think he is just looking for a simple definition - not
a line-by-line tally. Can you verify this statement, and define the "annual debt flow"?
Thanks,

Here are my changes:
COUNTY EXECUTIVE RECOMMENDED BUDGET HIGHLIGHTS
Milwaukee County Public Transit System
Provide $46 million (including $16.4 million in County general obligation bonds and $29.7 million in
Federal funds) to purchase 125 clean diesel buses. 55 buses are expected to be delivered in mid-
2010, with all buses delivered before the end of 2012.
Avoid elimination of entire bus routes (MCTS proposed elimination of XX entire routes).
CArcher_Journal3000196
Provide an additional $2.8 million in tax levy support for Paratransit maintain current fares for
Paratransit riders.
Expand the New Freedom pilot program offering free rides to Paratransit riders on fixed bus
routes, providing more options, flexibility and freedom to Paratransit riders. This initiative is expected
to save $745,000 in 2010 while offering greater flexibility to users.
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)
Utilize $36.6 million in Federal transportation funding matched with $6.5 million in proceeds from
the sale of surplus County property to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for the construction of
a ten mile long Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Line along the corridor from the University of Wisconsin-
Milwaukee main campus through downtown and then west to the County grounds.
The BRT will result in higher rider ship as preliminary estimates indicate approximately 13,000 riders
initially with the potential for a 20% increase in future years.
The BRT line is expected to include the following features in order to increase the efficiency and
convenience of the system:
o Purchase of 20 low-floor, 60-foot articulated buses.
o Upgraded shelters at bus stops with real-time bus arrival/departure information.
o Signal controls and dedicated traffic lanes where feasible to decrease the time it takes riders to
reach their destination.
Construction of BRT related street infrastructure improvements may begin as early as 2010 and BRT
buses are planned for purchase in 2011.
Provide over $101.5 million in capital improvement funds (including $17.0 million in bonds and $6.5
million in Land Sale proceeds) for the purchase of:
o 125 clean diesel replacement buses (see above)
o Fare box replacement for the entire bus fleet
o Annunciator replacement for the entire bus fleet
o Major maintenance and improvements to the transit system facilities
o Bus Rapid Transit (see above)

Assuming SKW sends letter to Board requesting authority to implement 35 hour workweek. I am
thinking I should tell cabinet departments to prepare budget reductions plans without paid time off
for employees (furloughs) unless it is VTO (voluntary time off). I have seen some plans come in
alredy that assume furlough time for nonreps. Until the Board responds to the CEX request,
departments should not assume they can or the CEX will be willing to furlough nonreps in the
absence of board approval. Agree?

These are my changes:
Date: September 16, 2009
To: Lee Holloway, Chairman, Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors
From: Scott K. Walker, Milwaukee County Executive
Subject: 2009 Projected Shortfall and Corrective Action
The most recent 2009 fiscal projections from the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) indicates that
the Countys projected year-end shortfall has increased by $2.4 million to $6.2 million. As a result, I have
instructed cabinet departments to submit budget reduction plans for potential implementation as early as
October 4 th . Departments will be submitting these plans to DAS by the end of the day on Friday, September
18 th .
Due to the size of the projected shortfall, the limited time remaining in the year and corrective actions
departments have already implemented, I expect (without added flexibility) significant layoffs will be required
for the remainder of the year to close our projected gap. This would no doubt result in service reductions that
we would both agree are unacceptable. I believe it is in the best interest of the County to pursue
implementation of four, 35-hour workweeks for all County employees with the exception of law enforcement,
security and direct patient care staff related to public safety.
I maintain that the Office of the County Executive holds the authority to implement reduced work schedules for
staff in cabinet departments to address budgetary deficits. However, this question is currently in litigation and
will not be resolved in time to address our 2009 projected shortfall. Therefore, I am requesting County Board
approval to implement 35-hour workweeks for up to four weeks to ensure this action withstands any potential
legal challenges . In addition, I am requesting the Board to authorize 35-hour workweeks for up to four weeks
for all County staff - including those reporting to Constitutional Officers.
Approval of the above action and cooperation from the Constitutional Officers would result in a tax levy savings
of approximately $1.3 million. This savings translates into approximately 140 averted layoffs of County
employees, which will reduce the total number of layoffs necessary to address the projected shortfall.
Since time is limited in our efforts to balance the Countys 2009 budget, I would respectfully request that this
issue be referred to the Finance and Audit Committee for favorable consideration at the September 17, 2009
Finance and Audit Committee meeting. Without affirmative action from the Board, departments will be left
with few options as they prepare budget reduction plans for 2009.

I would like to send clarification out to departments on the development of their budget reduction
plans. Specifically, that while you have requested approval for reduced workweeks, department
reduction plans should not assume approval. I am getting plans already that assume reduced
workweeks for nonreps. We need to be consistent on this issue and in the event we get the approval
the plans can be adjusted accordingly. Also, we will get a better idea of how many layoffs will be
required if we do not get Board approval. Agree?

with furloughs not as an option. If we get Board approval, we can adjust plans accordingly.

Assuming SKW sends letter to Board requesting authority to implement 35 hour workweek. I am
thinking I should tell cabinet departments to prepare budget reductions plans without paid time off
for employees (furloughs) unless it is VTO (voluntary time off). I have seen some plans come in
alredy that assume furlough time for nonreps. Until the Board responds to the CEX request,
departments should not assume they can or the CEX will be willing to furlough nonreps in the
absence of board approval. Agree?

When preparing your proposed budget reduction plans please be advised that they should not assume
we have the flexibility to implement furloughs or reduced work weeks for either represented or non
represented staff. Attached is a letter sent this morning to the Chairman requesting authority to
implement reduced workweeks. Until the Board has acted on this, your plans should assume no
implementation of furloughs or reduced workweeks. In the event the Board grants this authority we
will adjust reduction plans accordingly.
Please not that it is appropriate however under the corrective action plan we have had in place all
year to include any VTO (voluntary time off) that employees are interested in taking assuming you
will be able to continue the operation of your office/department and assuming approval by the HR
department as required in code.
Given this clarification, I am extending the deadline for receipt of these plans by DAS until the end of
the day on Friday. If you have already submitted your plans and they do not include furloughs or
reduced work weeks you need not re-submit. However, if you plans did assume implementation of
furlough days or reduced work weeks you will need to revise them per the above and re-submit by
Friday.

In response to your recent email, it is important to note that the Parks Department has already made significant
efforts to reduce expenditures. Here are some examples::
All seasonals but those generating revenues, ensuring public safety, or providing essential services are
gone AND Seasonal hours were paired back in late spring prior to the summer season.
Seasonal personnel are shared by all parks division based on need and revenue potential
We have turned the lights off in our buildings
We have not run air-conditioning in administration or other buildings
We are consolidating (the already consolidated) service yards for the winter and shutting down
service buildings
We are closing pavilions and consolidating rentals for the winter
Noyes and Pulaski indoor pools are adjusting hours to reflect simmers usage
King and Kozy are closing early
We have just come through the coldest summer in recent history; to close our facilities now would result in
breaching contracts and refunds; our golf courses continue to be active and generate revenue as fall approaches.
It is unrealistic for the Parks Department to achieve the level of savings suggested without resorting to the loss
and lay-off of full-time employees. If necessary, the department would be forced to lay-off 25 Park
Maintenance Worker Is
and 13 Park Maintenance Workers IIs.
Please keep in mind that we are working cooperatively with TPW to transfer personnel with CDLs to them to
assist with winter road plowing. The loss of all of the PMWs
would result in significant and very visible service reductions and leave the department with few resources to
meet the publics expectations.
I need to acknowledge the Parks staff and their dedication above and beyond their responsibilities. They are
working endless weekends and evenings, using their own vehicles, foregoing vacation time, and working
tirelessly to achieve our revenue targets.

Finally, we have just come through a great summer where the Parks Department made significant contribution to
tourism and the economic well-being of our community. We provide strong property values and are a very
visible resource that this community cherishes.
Let me know if this is acceptable.

The budget reduction plan of $54,139 for the Procurement Division consists of two options. Please
note that fringe benefits are included to arrive at the target.
Option 1
Reduce services accounts (6000's) by $10,700 and commodities accounts (7000's) by $1,200 for a
total of $11,900. The remaining $42,239 could be achieved by each employee taking four weeks off
without pay for a total of $50,118.
Option 2
Reduce services accounts (6000's) by $10,700 and commodities accounts (7000's) by $1,200 for a
total of $11,900. The remaining $42,239 would be achieved by laying off One Administrative
Assistant 12, one Office support Assistant 2 and one Buyer 1 positions.

COUNTY EXECUTIVE RECOMMENDED BUDGET HIGHLIGHTS

Milwaukee County Public Transit System

Provide $18.0 million in levy support for the system. Avoid any transit entire-route
eliminations.

Provide an additional $2.8 million in tax levy support for Paratransit maintain current fares
for Paratransit riders.

Expand the New Freedom pilot program offering free rides to Paratransit riders on fixed
bus routes, providing more options, flexibility and freedom to Paratransit riders. This
initiative is expected to save $745,000 in 2010 while offering greater flexibility to users.

Provide over $101.5 million in capital improvement funds (including $17.0 million in
bonds and $6.5 million in Land Sale proceeds) for the purchase of:

o 125 clean diesel replacement buses (see below)
o Fare box replacement for the entire bus fleet
o Annunciator replacement for the entire bus fleet
o Major maintenance and improvements to the transit system facilities
o Bus Rapid Transit (see below)

Provide $46 million (including $16.4 million in County general obligation bonds, $16.6
million in Federal stimulus funds and $13.1 million in other Federal funds) to purchase 125
clean diesel buses. 55 buses are expected to be delivered in mid-2010, with all bused
delivered before the end of 2012.

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

Utilize $36.6 million in Federal transportation funding matched with $6.5 million in proceeds
from the sale of surplus County property to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for the
construction of a ten mile long Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Line along the corridor from the
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee main campus through downtown and then west to the
County grounds.
The BRT will result in higher rider ship as preliminary estimates indicate approximately
13,000 riders initially with the potential for a 20% increase in future years.
The BRT line is expected to include the following features in order to increase the efficiency
and convenience of the system:

o Purchase of 20 low-floor, 60-foot articulated buses.
o Upgraded shelters at bus stops with real-time bus arrival/departure information.
o Signal controls and dedicated traffic lanes where feasible to decrease the time it
takes riders to reach their destination.

Construction of BRT related street infrastructure improvements may begin as early as 2010
and BRT buses are planned for purchase in 2011.

To: Lee Holloway, Chairman, Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors

From: Scott K. Walker, Milwaukee County Executive

Subject: 2009 Projected Deficit and Corrective Action

As you know a recent report from the Department of Administrative Services (DAS)
indicates that the Countys projected year-end deficit has increased by $2.4 million to
$6.2 million. As a result I have instructed cabinet department to submit cutback plans to
DAS in a total amount of $6.2 million for potential implementation as early as October
4
th
. Departments will be submitting these plans to DAS by the end of the day, Thursday
September 17
th
.

Due to the size of the projected deficit and the limited time remaining in the year,
corrective actions necessary may include significant lay-offs and reductions in services to
County residents. Despite the efforts that we have already implemented and are
continuing to apply, hundreds of employee lay-offs may be necessary to close the
remaining gap. I therefore believe it is in the best interests of the County to pursue
implementation of four 35-hour workweeks for all County employees in departments
reporting to the County Board and County Executive, with the exception of employees in
24/7 operations.

While I maintain that the Office of the County Executive holds the authority to
implement reduced work schedules to address budgetary deficits, as you are aware, this
question is currently in litigation and will not be resolved until the time period for
effective corrective action has passed. Therefore I am requesting County Board approval
to ensure the order withstands any potential legal challenges. Implementation of four 35-
hour workweeks will result in a tax levy savings of $735,000, reducing necessary by 80
employees.

Since time is limited in our efforts to balance the Countys 2009 budget, I would
respectfully request that a special meeting of the Finance & Audit Committee be
scheduled for September 21
st
or 22
nd
for consideration of the implementation of four 35
hour work weeks for the remainder of 2009, as well as the cutback plans that have been
submitted to DAS by cabinet departments.

Subject: 2009 Projected Deficit and Corrective Action

As you know the recent 2009 fiscal projections from the Department of Administrative
Services (DAS) indicates that the Countys projected year-end deficit has increased by
$2.4 million to $6.2 million. As a result I have instructed cabinet department to submit
budget reduction plans by for potential implementation as early as October 4
th
.
Departments will be submitting these plans to DAS by the end of the day, Thursday
September 17
th
.

Due to the size of the projected deficit, the limited time remaining in the year and
corrective actions departments have already implemented, I expect without added
flexibility significant layoffs will be required for the remainder of the year to close our
projected gap. This would no doubt result in service reductions that I am certain you and
I would agree would be unacceptable I therefore believe it is in the best interests of the
County to pursue implementation of four 35-hour workweeks for all County employees
with the exception of law enforcement, security and direct patient care staff related to
public safety.

While I maintain that the Office of the County Executive holds the authority to
implement reduced work schedules for staff in cabinet departments to address budgetary
deficits, as you are aware, this question is currently in litigation and will not be resolved
in time to address our current year projected gap. Therefore I am requesting County
Board approval to implement 35 hour work weeks for up to four weeks to ensure this
action withstands any potential legal challenges. Further, unlike my previous action, I
am requesting the Board to authorize 35 hour work weeks (for up to four weeks) for all
county staff including staff reporting to Constitutional Officers.

Approval of the above action and cooperation from the Constitutional Officers would
result in a tax levy savings of approximately $1.3 million. This savings translates into
approximately 140 averted layoffs of county employees.

Since time is limited in our efforts to balance the Countys 2009 budget, I would
respectfully request that this issue be referred to the Finance and Audit Committee for
favorable consideration at the September 17, 2009 Finance and Audit Committee
meeting. Without affirmative direction from the Board, departments will be left with few
options as they prepare budget reduction plans for 2009.

Cynthia,
I talked to Chuck and our only concern is if the Society has agreed to the concept
and the written language.
Not sure if you are looking for other changes but below are some minor changes to
the narrative.
The Zoo Visitor Spending Cost Patterns Five Year Performance graph needs to be
updated to: $14.72 per capita spending and $3.53 Net Cost / Visitor
Under Zoo hours: add Saturday -Sunday 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to the J anuary
through February / November & December hours (I forgot to add this in the
Request)
The special exhibit fee under General Zoo Visitor Fee Schedule should be $2.50
instead of $2.00 (we charge more for Dinosaurs).

Departments are preparing their 2009 budget reductions. I am hearing that some
would like to propose furloughs for non reps. I suspect we cannot do this without
Board approval and pending the outcome of litigation. correct? VTO would be ok
and short term layoffs. right?

Cynthia,
I talked to Chuck and our only concern is if the Society has agreed to the concept
and the written language.
Not sure if you are looking for other changes but below are some minor changes to
the narrative.
The Zoo Visitor Spending Cost Patterns Five Year Performance graph needs to be
updated to: $14.72 per capita spending and $3.53 Net Cost / Visitor
Under Zoo hours: add Saturday -Sunday 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to the J anuary
through February / November & December hours (I forgot to add this in the
Request)
The special exhibit fee under General Zoo Visitor Fee Schedule should be $2.50
instead of $2.00 (we charge more for Dinosaurs).

Cindy,
Attached is the reduction in force plan.
This was developed by myself, Davida, Karen J ackson and Steve Kreklow. It is part
our our strategy to mitigate the more contentious aspects of the budget. HR did an
excellent job handling the dietary layoffs and this document presents those as a plan
for going forward. While the CEX did not see this document, we did reference it in
our overview of the budget.
I would strongly encourage that it be included in the budget. As a second option, I
would recommend that it be distributed as a supplemental report. We took a lot of
heat last year during the hearings for not being prepared for layoffs or for caring
about what happens to employees. This paper demonstrates forethought and care
for the well being of employees.

Per the below, I asked Steve to make the edits and send to Fran. He decided to not
make one critical edit related to funding for the Samiara (sp) House. As a result the
CEX mentioned this organization on camera today. This organization apparently no

CArcher_Journal3000275
Good afternoon.
The Pension Board meeting is scheduled for tomorrow, with a series of topics that are
primarily informational.
These topics include operational updates, a monthly Activities report and the list of
retirees for J uly and August.
Some areas being reviewed for the Board include:
* V-3 Self Service - active employee and retiree access to their personal
demographic information, forms
down-loading, and pension calculator.
* Cash Flow Report - an informational overview of the monthly financial status of
cash on hand for
administrative and general operational costs.
* Investment Managers Report - the report will indicate positive news of the portfolio
having a value of 1.7
billion dollars and a projection of
a good last quarter.
Board topics which may result in some media interest
1. The RFP recommendations by the Investment Committee/Evaluation Panel for
Small Cap Value and
Emerging Markets Managers. Several companies that submitted may be
disappointed. The press may want
to know the methodology used for selection. ERS has good documentation on the
selection process.
2. There are Pension Board Elections in 2010. A contract for Electronic voting is
being presented. Also,
Telephone Voting for the retiree election is being proposed. This may result in
some intense discussion.

I received an information request for how much the county board increased their
budget every year since 2002. Is this readily available? I looked back in my records
and found reference to county board salaries in an email from Steve - but this
request is for their entire budget each year.

Will this require dropping another project so that this can get funded? If so, we need
to be sure the CEX knows what project we are recommending to be dropped. You
might want to give him a few options.

Pam,
Tim Russell stopped by my office late Friday and told me that the CEX had met with
Bill Drew and agreed to provide $350,000 for the replacement of gas boilers in TIC.
Please see me tomorrow morning so we can figure out how to do this.
Thanks.

DEPARTMENTAL PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The Zoo's organizational structure is designed to maximize efficiency of operations, facilities, animal management
and human resources. The Zoo includes four divisions: Animal Management and Health, Operations,
Administration and Finance, and Public Affairs and Services. These divisions provide a work force organized to
address the seasonal nature of operations, increase attendance and revenue-earning opportunities and provide
optimum animal care.
The Animal Management and Health Division is responsible for the care and management of the extensive
animal collection, which means maintaining fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals and invertebrates in good
health to allow their conservation, propagation and display. This includes providing a well-balanced, nutritious
diet, a preventive medicine program and routine physical exam programs for such animals as the great apes and
the large cats. Specialized medical health services such as surgery, immunology, parasite control and drug and
physical therapy are also performed. The animal facilities are designed and maintained to provide the proper
environment for the animals and to provide an educational and entertaining experience to the visitor.
The Operations Division includes business and concessions functions related to the Zoo's major revenue
sources such as admissions, parking lot, two restaurants with a patio complex, three major food concession
facilities and various food stands, gift, novelty and souvenir stores, a miniature train ride, a Zoomobile ride and a
carousel ride. In addition, this division also provides for the maintenance, improvement and overall grooming of
the grounds, which are critical to visitor satisfaction and return trade. Included in this area are mechanical and
preventive maintenance programs for equipment, ventilating, air-conditioning and heating systems, and minor
electrical and plumbing repairs. Also included are housekeeping and general cleaning of the entire Zoo.
The Administration and Finance Division support functions include cash management, financial and capital
project planning and control, accounts payable and receivable, personnel and payroll, reception, switchboard,
radio dispatch, other general office services and all clerical support. This division provides the Zoo with planning
direction, goals for all divisions, and daily financial and administrative management oversight control. Also
included is the oversight of the Zoo's Green and Safety committees.
The Public Affairs and Services Division is responsible for public relations, promotional activities, special
events and programs, group sales and entertainment program development to increase public use, enjoyment
and awareness of the Zoo facility.

E.xpand Public/Private Partnership
Milwaukee County and the Zoological Society of Milwaukee share a similar vision for maintaining a world-class
zoo in Milwaukee. Therefore, it is the intent of both organizations to build on their existing successful
public/private partnership by jointly creating an independent, non-for-profit corporation that will effectively manage
the long-term operational needs and programmatic offerings of a great zoo and preserve it for the visiting public
long into the future. This new combination of resources will more efficiently serve the residents of Milwaukee
County and the members of the Zoological Society of Milwaukee.
To achieve this, the following steps are recommended:
In full cooperation with the Zoological Society of Milwaukee, authorize the creation of a not-for-profit
corporation to assume operation and management of the Milwaukee County Zoo effective October 1, 2011.
Create a Steering Committee to oversee the development of draft legal documents and establish the process
necessary to implement the change in governance. Draft legal documents including, but not limited to, the
Articles of Incorporation, By-Laws and Lease and Management Agreement.
The Steering Committee would consist of:
Representatives of the Zoological Society and their Counsel
Milwaukee County Zoo Director
Milwaukee County Chief Corporation Counsel
Representatives from DAS and County Board staff
Chief of Staff's from CEX and County Board Chair Office
". Establish as the Co-Chairs of the Steering Committee the Chief Corporation Counsel of Milwaukee County
and a representative of the Zoological Society.
". Provide $60,000 to the Office of Corporation Counsel for outside legal assistance as required. The Zoological
Society of Milwaukee will provide similar funding for any additional outside consultants if needed.
Authorize the Steering Committee to form subcommittees, as required, to develop transition plans necessary
to complete the successful transition from County & Zoological Society management and operation to
management and operation by the newly created not-for-profit corporation. Plans to be developed shall
include, but not limited to, plans dealing with the manner in which administrative functions currently provided
by the County and Society and the assets owned by each respective organization are to be transitioned to the
new corporation.
Direct the Steering Committee Workgroup to develop the draft documents necessary to implement the transition
of Zoo governance, for submission to and to submit these documents for review and approval to the Milwaukee
County Parks, Environment and Energy Committee, the Milwaukee County Finance and Audit Committee, and
the Executive Board of the Zoological Society of Milwaukee for review and approval by no later than December
2010.
Attendance
Zoo attendance is expected to remain at the 2009 projected level of 1,350,000 visitors.
$0
Summer Special E.xhibit $50,455
The 2010 Special Exhibit is changing to the Dinosaur Exhibit. The Avian Special Exhibit did not meet revenue
targets in 2009. The Dinosaur Exhibit will increase the tax levy for Special Exhibits by $50,455, but will assist the
Zoo in meeting their revenue targets.

Zoo Visitor Spending and Cost Patterns
The majority of revenue categories for the Zoo are driven by attendance. The 2010revenue budget was
developed by using actual experience and applying It against the attendance goal of 1.350,000 visitors. The 2009
Budget included $300,000 in additional revenues from the Zoo's new polnt-of-sale system. The 2010 revenue
budget continues this assumption in the revenue model. For 2010, the average visitor per capita spending and
net cost per visitor is budgeted at $13.80 and $3.51 respectively. The chart below shows the five year visitor
spending and cost patterns.

Management Flexibility
The Zoo will continue the following initiatives through 2010:
UNIT NO. 9500
FUND: General 0001
The flexibility to reallocate major maintenance projects and equipment purchases while remaining within the
total appropriation;
The Zoo Director's authorization is continued to discount or waive admission fees and to provide one free
admission day per month during the months of January through April, and November and December.
Milwaukee County Residents
The following discounts are continued in the 2010 Budget:
Discounted admission fees of $9,50 for adults and $6.50 for juniors and school groups for Milwaukee County
residents on Wednesdays;
Daily discount of $1.75 off the admission rate including weekends for Milwaukee County residents
Resale Purchases for Novelties and Souvenirs
The Zoological Department is requesting that the Milwaukee County Purchasing Administrator be authorized to
issue and deliver letters of intent to overseas vendors at a cost not to exceed $400,000 in aggregate for advance
ordering of the Zoo's 2010 and 2011 resale purchases for novelties and souvenirs in October of 2009 and
October 2010 respectively. This amount is apprOXimately 57% of the total requested appropriation for resale
novelties and souvenirs. A substantial portion of resale merchandise sold at the Milwaukee County Zoo is
purchased from import vendors to provide the quantity and variety of items desired by the general public visiting
the Zoo. Due to the distance and travel time required for overseas shipments, the Zoo must order resale
merchandise in the fall for spring delivery. Precedent exists in past County Board authorization for the Zoo to
purchase resale items for the upcoming year. Budget authority is included in the 2010 Zoo budget in lieu of
separate review and approval during the budget year. The County Board of Supervisors may revoke this
authority if 2011 funds are not appropriated for Zoo novelties and souvenirs during the 2011 budget deliberations
in October of 201 O.
Revenues ($1,509,038)
Revenue changes consist of the following:
$658,932 increase in revenue associated with the admission fee increase of $1;
$257,274 increase in revenue associated with the parking fee increase of $1;
$170,000 increase in new revenue from the continuation of the 2009 contracts for face painting and
entrance photos;
$210,030 increase in revenue for concessions revenue based on 2008 actual experience;
$200,000 in increased support from the Zoological Society;
$70,517 in increased revenue for Society parking fees based on 2008 activity;
$57,715 reduction in revenue based on miscellaneous revenue changes;
Animal Division Alignment of Position Within Job Group ($3,670)
One position of Curator of Large Mammals is abolished and one position of Large Mammals Curator is created in
2010. This action realigns the Curator of Large Mammals within the Curator Job Group. A tax levy savings of
$3,670 is generated from this action.
Building Maintenance Change $0
Two positions of Heating and Ventilating Mechanic 1 are created in 2010 and two positions of Zoo Maintenance
Worker are asterisked for abolishment when the positions become vacant. The heating, air conditioning and
refrigeration systems at the Milwaukee County Zoo have grown more complex over the years and require
additional skills to maintain these systems. Creation of the new positions has a zero net tax levy impact because
the positions are part of the Zoo's 2010 vacancy and turnover plan and will not be filled until vacancies occur
within the positions of Zoo Maintenance Worker.

ZOOLOGICAL SOCIETY SUPPORT
The relationship between Milwaukee County and the Zoological Society began in 1910 when the Washington
Park Zool09ical Society, now the Zoological Society of Milwaukee County, was organized to help raise funds for
animal acquisition. The Society has functioned for many years for the purpose of aiding the County in the
operation, maintenance and development of the Zoo and its animal collection. Its mission is to promote
conservation, education, exhibition of animals, research and recreation through fundraising and volunteerism.
In February 1989, the relationship was formalized with a Memorandum of Understanding, thus forging a strong
public/private partnership for the continuing support of the Milwaukee County Zoo. The Memorandum of
Understanding was renewed in 1992 and again in 1996. The agreement provides office space for the Society on
the Zoo grounds, including utilities, custodial and maintenance services and staff parking. To assure continued
support for the Zoo, the County provides free admission for Society members throughout the term of the
Memorandum of Understanding.
The cost of the capital improvement program contained in the 2000-2009 Nine-Year Plan is $29.6 million, which
was split equally between Milwaukee County and the Zoological Society.
For 2010, the Zoological Society support of $1,158,615 consists of the following:
$424,865 continuation of 2008 additional support, as well as an increase of $200,000 in 2010
$310,750 in corporate sponsorship revenue
$74.288 for various ticket reimbursement for Society members
$55,000 summer exhibit corporate sponsorship revenue
$93,712 in miscellaneous support
Capital Investments
$4,984,906 are invested in capital projects for 2010. These include projects that are part of two 2010 debt
issuances and a Fall 2009 debt issuance. The projects funded through the Fall 2009 debt issuance were

MAJOR INITIATIVES


Protecting Public Safety

Provides $194.3 million in levy support for public safety agencies, an increase of $16.1
million.
Key decision items
Sheriff
As a result of the HOC/Sheriff merger, the Sheriffs office implements a reorganization,
approved in May 2009, that increases efficiency and saves $2.5 million
The J ailer Initiative is continued whereby 42 FTE vacant Deputy Sheriff 1 positions are
replaced with 42 FTE Correction Officer 1 positions for a savings of $1.0 million
The Farm and Fish Hatchery is closed for a savings of $237,791
3 FTE Deputy Sheriff Positions are added to provide increased patrols of I-94 during
construction at a cost of $67,469
A daily boarding fee of $6 for all sentenced inmates at the House of Correction is
implemented for an anticipated revenue of $100,000.
District Attorney
1.0 FTE Clerical Assistant 2 position is added to the budget to assist with increased
workload due to the need to comply with court orders to transcribe state statute required
interrogations.
All investigators are equipped with tasers to improve their ability to use non-lethal force
during confrontations.
Medical Examiner
Lab technicians will be cross-trained in using newly purchased x-ray equipment so that
a professional service contract is no longer needed. This will save $11,500 in 2010.
Courts
Universal screening is authorized if grant funding becomes available. Universal
screening will help identify defendants who would benefit from diversionary programs
resulting in a decrease in the jail population. The cost of this program is $1.0 million
Expenditures are re-estimated based on 2009 cost-saving imitative for a total savings of
$160,000
3.5 FTE vacant positions are abolished for savings of $275,000

Public Safety Capital Investments - $10 million
X-Ray equipment - $119,950
Electronic Medical Records replacement- $2.8 million
Video Visitation - $432,000
Security Cameras - $2.6 million
55 Sheriff Vehicles - $______



CArcher_Journal3000292
Economic Development and Job Creation

Provide $450,000 and 4.0 FTE and consulting funds for creation of Office of Economic
Opportunity attached to the County Executives Office.
One director and three business advocates
Work in concert with municipal officials and ED agents to provide comprehensive ED
strategy and comprehensive assistance to businesses.
Focus on business retention/expansion/re-location
See attached.

Accelerate County building program by issuing approximately $120 million bonds over
next two years. Projects will be completed over the next four years. Key capital projects
include:
Parks Aquatic Plan -- $11.5 million over three years
BHD Renovation -- $12.4 million over three years
Fleet Initiative -- $19.5 million over three years
Parks Projects -- $17.7 million over three years
Public Safety -- $9.9 million over three years
Highways/Bridges and Roads -- $46.1 over three years

Use Build America Bonds for County capital program to achieve 35% credit on interest
payments.

Work with businesses to issue over $18 million Recovery Zone Facility bonds for private
endeavors. These bonds will allow businesses to issue lower-interest, tax-exempt bonds
through Milwaukee County. Bonds must be issued by December 31, 2010.


Transportation

No Bus Route Eliminations

New Buses - Provide $46 million over three years to purchase 125 clean diesel buses.
Fifty-five buses will begin delivery April-August 2010 with remaining buses delivered
before close of 2012. [$16.4 million county bonding/$16.6 federal stimulus/$13.1 million
federal funds.

Bus Rapid Transit - Provide $43 million [County $6.5 million/FED $36.6 million] in 2010
and 2011 for construction of Wisconsin Avenue BRT line and purchase of BRT buses.
Targeted completion date mid 2011.

Continued expansion of New Freedom Program by increasing county efforts to assist
para-transit riders to ride mass transit for a saving of over $400,000.

Other Capital Improvements
CArcher_Journal3000293

CArcher_Journal3000294
Government Reform

Wage and Benefit Concessions
Budget almost $30 million in County Employee wage and benefit concessions. (See
Attached).

Outsourcing government work to save taxpayers over $3.2 million.
Outsource housekeeping, Courthouse security services and mainframe operations and
application support. 135 FTE county positions are abolished.

New governance model for Zoo management and operations
Establish process in cooperation with Zoological Society to transition Zoo management
and operations to a private- not-for-profit corporation. Expected completion date 2011.

Increased capital investment to reduce operating costs

Fleet Program: The fleet replacement schedule will be accelerated to take advantage of
low interest rates and replace an aging fleet. An aggressive replacement schedule will then
be maintained so that most vehicles will remain under warranty while owned by the
County. This will allow the County to reduce maintenance expenditures and staffing costs
in the Fleet division while improving the condition of the entire fleet.

The Parks department will continue to shift focus from deep-well pools to splash pads and
aquatic centers, which have lower maintenance costs and increased revenue potential.

The Medical Examiner will update x-ray equipment so that lab technicians can operate the
machinery and not have to rely on private contractors

Land sale revenue in Parks will be available for major maintenance (Crystal Ridge and 68
th

and State).

Land sale revenue related to BHD consolidation will be retained by BHD to be used for
BHD renovation.

Parks and Highways Shared Employees
In 2010, 14.0 FTE Park Maintenance Worker II positions will transfer to the Highways
department for approximately 4 months during the winter to assist with snowplowing
operations
This will reduce the need for temporary employees in Highways, lowering
unemployment costs and creating a more stable year-to-year work force. It also
decreases costs county-wide by approximately $326,000 as the state reimburses the
County for snowplowing activities on the state highway system.


CArcher_Journal3000295
Airport Privatization
Create a steering committee that is responsible for recommending policy to the larger
county board; this committee would largely be advised by the operations committee,
which would also be created in the budget.
Funding of $250,000 will be appropriated to retain consultants and outside counsel as
necessary.

Highways Long Term Planning
Fund $100,000 for a consultant to help develop a long-term plan for county trunk highways.
Ideas that could be explored and developed include:
A special assessment for county trunk work (therefore reducing the bonding and
long-term debt);
Developing a plan for ongoing major maintenance on county trunks;
Investigating the opportunity to transfer authority over county trunks to
municipalities
Feasibility of outsourcing county trunk highways to a private vendor.
Recommending an option to maintain major and minor parkway thoroughfares.

Outsource Airport Fire Department to Air National Guard
Airport will contract with the Air National Guard, who already operates a fire
department near General Mitchell International, for fire services. Currently services are
provided by County employees.
The Air National Guard already provides fire services to the Dane County Airport.

If you are asking me for my recommendations on how to close the 2009 gap,
here they are:
1. We implement a plan to close the $6.2 million gap by $4.0 million. This
reflects the margin of error in our estimates and in my opinion if we're going to
laying significant numbers of employees off, we would be better off ending the
year with a small deficit instead of a surplus.
2. We should seek Board approval to implement 4 furlough days for all
CArcher_Journal3000300
departments generating savings of $2.8 million.
3. We should ask all cabinet departments to submit lay off plans totaling $1.2
million in tax levy savings.
If you're asking me how allocate the entire $6.2 million out to departments, my
recommendation is to allocate it out evenly to all departments.

We discussed this at length with the CEX. His direction at the time was to use any funds
available after we tied out to increase the contingent fund. If we had done that the
contingent fund would have been nearly 7 million.

Next time the CEX Office request information related to the budget, it is our job to get it for
them not to refer them off to a department. If needed you or your staff should call the
department to get the info. on behalf of CEX Office. If the info requested is qualativve in
nature and you are not comfortbale responding, asking them to talk to deparjtment is fine.
In this case they wanted a number and we should have secured that for them.

The talking points showed that the expansion of Family Care will allow services to be
provided to an estimated 2,500 adults. Steve asked the CE if that was accurate, thought
the number was larger.
Also - I have attached a draft release that is just issuing the highlights, without reference to
the individual agencies. Is it ok like this?

There is a sentence in the DHSS narrative that nicely states the rationale for moving HR staff
back into the departments. I would like this exact sentence in every budget narrative for
department's impacted. I have seen it written different ways in different department
narratives. Could you please make sure it is stated the same in all narratives and use the
DHSS languge as the template? thanks.

J ust give me a draft of where they are now. This is mainly for speech prep and before any
#s are used we will verify with your staff. They need to see the highlights to outline the
initiatives they want to mention in the speech. I don't think salary numbers are going to that
important at this point. They are only looking for topics and again we will verify # later.

Subject: Re:
Unfortunately this won't be possible.
Almost all of the information included in the Budget Highlights document is pulled from the
department narratives and most of the numbers include some wages and benefits or cross
charges.
With the change in the wage and benefit reform package that the CEX asked us to
implement on Friday, the wages and benefits and cross charges for every department and
most programs will change. Tomorrow (Monday) the budget analysts will go through the
process of making sure that every department ties out to the totals that J ohn and Natalie
worked on this weekend. After they tie out, the analysts need to go back into their
narratives and update the numbers included in the text to be consistent with the new
totals. Before the narratives are finalized another analyst will double check all numbers in
the narratives against the BRASS system to make sure every thing is accurate. At that point
I can begin the process of incorporating this information into the Budget Highlights
document.
While it's going to be tight, I believe that we'll have the Budget Highlights document ready to
be distributed with the Recommended Budget like we did last year.
Thanks.

Pam,
Tim Russell stopped by my office late Friday and told me that the CEX had met with Bill
Drew and agreed to provide $350,000 for the replacement of gas boilers in TIC. Please see
me tomorrow morning so we can figure out how to do this.

Will this require dropping another project so that this can get funded? If so, we need to be
sure the CEX knows what project we are recommending to be dropped. You might want to
give him a few options.

Cindy -
I have been asked to get a lot of background material together for the county executive's
speech. I will be going in to the office this afternoon to work on it - but quite a bit is
information I have not yet received - upcoming budget highlights for example. I only have
the EMS and Disabilities info.
I will put together a list of the topics and gather what I can from my own files and check
with Tim to see if he received info not passed on to me before I check with you. J ust
wanted to give you a heads up that this is in the works this weekend.
I'll send you the list this afternoon that I'll put together based on the county exec's verbal
outline he gave yesterday in case you have info you know should be included.
thanks,
(ps - if you aren't working all day - there's a great dog event in Brookfield starting at noon
that has an area to check your dog's speed by radar!) It's in the Cue section

Attached is a rough outline of CEX speech. We should focus on narrative higlights in these
areas -- numbers can come later. Fran is working from a blank slate -- she has no narrative
whatsoever to begin the speech. Again, the numbers are not the most important at this
point so waiting on analysts to tie out numbers should not delay getting highlights to CEX
office. J ohn and analyst can focus on getting the budget to bed, your and my top priority is
now getting info togheter for speech.

Subject: Re:
Unfortunately this won't be possible.
Almost all of the information included in the Budget Highlights document is pulled from the
department narratives and most of the numbers include some wages and benefits or cross
charges.
With the change in the wage and benefit reform package that the CEX asked us to
implement on Friday, the wages and benefits and cross charges for every department and
most programs will change. Tomorrow (Monday) the budget analysts will go through the
process of making sure that every department ties out to the totals that J ohn and Natalie
worked on this weekend. After they tie out, the analysts need to go back into their
narratives and update the numbers included in the text to be consistent with the new
totals. Before the narratives are finalized another analyst will double check all numbers in
the narratives against the BRASS system to make sure every thing is accurate. At that point
I can begin the process of incorporating this information into the Budget Highlights
document.
While it's going to be tight, I believe that we'll have the Budget Highlights document ready to
be distributed with the Recommended Budget like we did last year.
Thanks.

I need clarification on the housing programs that are funded. Guest House is
one of two owners (along with Heartland Housing) of Prairie Apartments - the
proposed site for the news conference.
CArcher_Journal3000332
1. I only see Guest House listed - at $50K - is this for any facilities they own?
2. The executive director at Prairie Apts. asked if the budget was providing
emergency shelter funding. I see that it is on the sheet for six homeless
shelters - is Prairie Apts. included in that group?

DRAFT

2010 CEX RECOMMENDED BUDGET HIGHLIGHTS

Program Amount
New Samaria Housing
Development
$ 70,000
Coordinated Community Housing $ 45,000
Supported Apartment Contracts $360,000

Continue tax levy funding $420,000 for six homeless shelters providing emergency
shelter to an average of 337 people every night.

Include over $30,000 to provide domestic abuse counseling services to approximately
480 clients.


CArcher_Journal3000337
5 themes

1. Afford to live and work in Milw. Cnty.

Based on all-time high foreclosure, companies in bankruptcy. Now is the last time we
can afford tax increases. CE Budget: no property tax increase, no sales tax increase, no
wheel tax.
Wants mention of negative impact of combined reporting Harley-Davidson example
cost them $22.5 million. Franklin/Tosa facilities
Call on Gov. and legislature to undo capital gains, reduce corporate income tax on mfg.
Change state tax on manufacturing and business some at risk of leaving.
Employers cant afford a penny more or theyll be out of business. And Im not going to
let that happen.

2. Retain and attract jobs in Milw. Cnty.

-Keeping jobs here. Need to help employers keep these jobs and then grow.
Key element will be the Milw.Cnty Works initiative: CE Office of Business
Development with an Executive Director and staff. Determine how can work with
business to create jobs.

-Accelerating building program. $120 million projects to be completed by end of 2010
18 months.
$50mil transportation infrastructure Hwy, bridges, roads
$20mil Fleet
$20mil Parks improvements

-Recovery Zone Facility Bonds (?) have lower liability, create county as a zone
$18mil additional capacity. Another tool we can use below market loans

-Transit will maintain existing routes, no route eliminations, but some will have segment
adjustments that reflect lower ridership portions.
-New service BRT Think rail, use buses. Adaptable service area. UWM-engineering
campus in Tosa to downtown and north to UWM east side campus.
-125 new green and clean buses Green Initiative. Cost savings will result from
replacing the old buses that cost an extra $10K/year to maintain.
-What is the levy for MCTS? Will be less in 2010.
-Airport has shown record-breaking, continued growth but will dip in 2009.

3. Balance between public sector and private sector benefits

48% of budget consists of Wage & Benefits for employees. Driving force is the
pension, retirement and health care benefits costs. We need to offset those cost drivers
with adjustments in employee wage and benefits.
$35mil cost, $32mil in savings proposed.
Concession bargaining need help from our employees.
CArcher_Journal3000338
(wants examples from the private sector to use as comparables Manitowoc, Racine
counties have freeze for 09, Dane county accepted cuts. All facing this problem.
FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY stress in speech Public Policy Forum report.
5-year forecast escalating structural deficit due to benefits.
Path to sustainability while maintaining necessary services and quality of life.
If choose to ignore this reality, structural deficit only gets bigger.
Examples of companies on public benefits side. Who successful with benefits Lisa
Mower Tool Service Corp.


4. Maintain quality of life

Public Safety: Sheriff/DA/Courts/EMS
Safety net programs:
Eliminate the 3000-person waiting list.
$4.8 million additional support for developmental and physical disabilities
Parks maintenance - $20 mil new bathroom facilities, playground equipment
Leverage private donations for 3
rd
major Aquatic Center at Hoyt and begin plan for 4
th

Aquatic Center in SE. Replace remaining deep well pools with splash pads. Deep well
attendance declining. Use Gordon Park as an example (ask Parks for suggestions of
neighbors happy with this). Transition to splash pads, strategy for underperforming
pools. Each region in county will have Aquatic Center Cool Waters, Dave Schulz,
Hoyt and SE. (others want this information posted on the website now showing
Gordon Park before and after)
Zoo Funding to create 501(c)3. Effective October 2011.
Create panel County/Zoological Society. Blend financial investment from county
with education/conservation strength of Zoological Society.
Chuck W. has examples.

5. Enact major budget reforms

One-time funding source
Wage and benefits is part
Land sales for paying down debt or limitied number of one-time projects and not for
ongoing operating costs. (BRT take proceeds from UW land sale and plug in for county
portion of matching funds).
Park revenues fairly inflated by Board. Adjust to realistic levels.
Sales tax target for 2010 lowered (by $2 million) to reflect economic trends. (dont use
2009 actuals).
We are not using pension lawsuit funds to balance budget. Funds to cover long-term
costs of the unfunded liability in pension. Long-term savings to pension fund.
Apply $30 million each of 5 years to obligation (?).
Dont use it all up front or will have a $30 million hole in 2011.
Expand public/private partnerships Parks, Zoo, other cultural institutions. People
invested in their community. Domes example, Zoological Society funded millions.

CArcher_Journal3000339
Invite:
Sheriff, DA
Goodwill/ARC others?
Parks Denise Lindberg of Friends of Hoyt
Zoo ?
Rob Henken of PPF
Some residents seniors, young couple, employers.

Taxes no increases

2010 CEX RECOMMENDED BUDGET HIGHLIGHTS

Supportive Housing

Provide tax levy funding for the continued operation of the Hilltop residential care unit for
developmentally disabled adults. This is BHD not housing, not appropriate for this
area. Additionally, I would not mention it under BHD because it could be part of the
lawsuit settlement on we do not want the County Executive to state a position one way
or the other.
The 2010 budget emphasizes the need for permanent, supportive housing for all
Milwaukee County residents.

The 2010 Budget continues to provide $660,000 (? Or $661,539) for the following
supportive housing programs. (Are all of these #s estimates or new
budget #s ?)

Program Amount
New Samaria Housing
Development Supportive Housing
$ 70,000
Was $72,500
Coordinated Community Housing $ 45,000
Supported Apartment Contracts $360,000
(was

Our Space $110,000
Guest House (see below) $ $
50,00049,000
Mercy Housing $ $
25,00023,540

(Guest House & Mercy Housing these are contracted amounts)
Provide $75,000 to support the Supportive Housing Development Committee
recommended by the Special Needs Housing Action Team and the Continuum of Care
consortium of governmental and non-profit entities working toward the goal of to
securinge funds to provide housing assistance for Milwaukee Countys homeless
population.

Continue tax levy funding $420,000 (was $418,881)for six homeless shelters providing

The first question does not make sense since we are in collective bargaining that has
not been resolved.

The answer to the 2nd question depends on who is covered by the 35 hour work
week -- public safety/constitional officers/health care?

Scott believes fringe surplus may be as much as 2 million higher. Dave

Attached is my allocation of a $6.2M levy reduction. It is based on
cabinet department's share of total levy. For departments with no levy
(Fleet, Facilities, IMSD. . .) it is based on expenditures. These numbers
are very large and given that we only have 3 months to probably
implement, the impact will likely be dramatic. I have not taken into
account potential service level impacts - it is just a straight allocation.

Scott believes fringe surplus may be as much as 2 million higher. Dave

I recommend we plan for 6.2 and scale it down if the numbers improve.

Attached is my allocation of a $6.2M levy reduction. It is based on cabinet
department's share of total levy. For departments with no levy (Fleet, Facilities,
IMSD. . .) it is based on expenditures. These numbers are very large and given that
we only have 3 months to probably implement, the impact will likely be dramatic. I
have not taken into account potential service level impacts - it is just a straight
allocation.

1. State approved employee benefits for dependent eligibility health coverage for a)
non-student dependents up to age 27, and b) dependent students no age limit, that
could increase costs for county $500K - $2million?
2. Autism insurance coverage
3. State approved domestic partnerships but no requirement for counties to insure

I made some suggested changes..for example groups are sensitive to the 18-59 that it means 18 to 59
meaning people are not eligible for anything in the year they are 59. Therefore please use 18
THROUGH 59.

Thank you,

What is your recommended plan for closing the 2009 budget gap? Earlier you told the CEX that we could
move ahead implementing cost saving measures included in the 2010 budget early. What are those
initiatives and is there really time to get them implemented? The CEX will likely be asked to make a
statement later today on the 09 gap. What do you recommend?

Through these gifts, individuals with MS are assisted with home and auto modifications, durable medical
equipment and other MS-related expenses. Look for this donation opportunity on your 2009 Wisconsin

Subject: Re: Bond rating
Cindy,
Dane County's rating was downgraded from a AAA. I wouldn't characterize their downgrade as due to the
economy and declining sales taxes as much as it was due to their inability to address the budget gap that
resulted. Regardless, I don't believe that the rating agencies would downgrade Milwaukee County on the
same basis. The threshold for maintaining a AAA is much higher than a AA so those counties are also
much more likely to be downgraded.
Having said that I should say that I do believe that the rating agencies are likely to give Milwaukee
County a negative outlook due to the assumed union concessions included in the 2010 budget. The
rating agencies will ask what assumptions regarding union contracts are included in the 2010 proposed
budget. If they judge those assumptions to be unrealistic they will state in their rating that we are
relying on unrealistic assumptions for union concessions to balance our budget. That would likely be
reason enough to give the County a negative outlook.
We will be going through bond ratings the second week of October. We will also be receiving bonds
ratings when we issue debt in the spring and fall of 2010.

Cindy,
My first recommendation is that the CEX not respond publicly in any detail until he has approved a plan
and we have been able to brief Board leadership. I think we're much more likely to be able to implement
if we try to work with the Board.
We reviewed the potential for early implementation of some of the budget changes, but it's too late in the
year and the gap is too large to address it using this approach. Most of the major initiatives could not be
implemented before the end of November and the beginning of December.
We calculated that the County would have to lay off between 680 and 835 employees (depending how
departments with high revenue offsets are treated) as of October 3rd in order to close the $6.2 million
gap. For some departments this may represent over 20% of their work force. Another option would be
to attempt to get Board approval to implement four mandatory furlough days for all employees before
the end of the year. This would save approximately $2.8 million and reduce the number of lay offs
necessary.
Bill is at the J udiciary Committee meeting this morning, so I was unable to discuss these issues with him.
I think we should get his input before making any decisions.

I can get into the eye doctor tomorrow while you're at Personnel Committee. I've been struggling with
my close vision lately and would really like to take the open appointment. J ennifer will be here and is OK

We were looking at two items in particular: 1) the layoff of park maintenance workers as proposed in the
2010 budget - we'll likely be laying off these employees as part of the larger lay off; 2) possible early
implementation of the housekeeping and security contracts. I talked with J ack this morning and we
won't be able to implement those contracts until late November or early December.

Cindy,
My first recommendation is that the CEX not respond publicly in any detail until he has approved a plan
and we have been able to brief Board leadership. I think we're much more likely to be able to implement
if we try to work with the Board.
We reviewed the potential for early implementation of some of the budget changes, but it's too late in the
CArcher_Journal3000424
year and the gap is too large to address it using this approach. Most of the major initiatives could not be
implemented before the end of November and the beginning of December.
We calculated that the County would have to lay off between 680 and 835 employees (depending how
departments with high revenue offsets are treated) as of October 3rd in order to close the $6.2 million
gap. For some departments this may represent over 20% of their work force. Another option would be
to attempt to get Board approval to implement four mandatory furlough days for all employees before
the end of the year. This would save approximately $2.8 million and reduce the number of lay offs
necessary.
Bill is at the J udiciary Committee meeting this morning, so I was unable to discuss these issues with him.
I think we should get his input before making any decisions.

What is your recommended plan for closing the 2009 budget gap? Earlier you told the CEX that we could
move ahead implementing cost saving measures included in the 2010 budget early. What are those
initiatives and is there really time to get them implemented? The CEX will likely be asked to make a
statement later today on the 09 gap. What do you recommend?

what about temps for housekeeping? I would twist J ack's arm on this. Also this is a procurement contract
not a professional sevices. I think Amos can award these from his office. Ask Davida or call Amos.

I hate to have to do blanket layoffs and based on your earlier comment, the CEX believes we can
implement 2010 items in 2009.

The new vendor will need to hire and train employees. Maybe we could twist J ack's arm into moving it up
a couple of weeks, but that would only get us another $50k or so.
