There has been outrage over the proposed Milwaukee county budget that includes a $60 wheel tax.
Today was the first day for residents to give their input on it and only 10 people showed up.
“The $60 wheel tax is going to make me move out of the county, I'll go to New Berlin. I'm on a fixed budget and it's just gonna be hurting me more. They have other ways they can do it,” said a resident.
None of today's speakers had anything positive to say about the tax that would be added to the state's fee to register your vehicle each year.
Chairperson Peggy West says she wished there had been better turnout at today's meeting.
There is another listening session on October 31 at 6 PM at the Performing Arts Center Downtown.
