K-12 Tax & $pending Climate: “the operating budget is the largest in Madison’s history and exceeds the 2023 budget by about $23 million”

Allison Garfield:

Surrounded by accusations of fiscal irresponsibility, the Madison City Council overwhelmingly passed budgets Tuesday night while tweaking how the city spends taxpayers’ money on staffing and major projects.

The council deliberated for hours into the late evening, ultimately ending with a capital budget totaling $273.1 million — a $6.6 million increase from Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway’s originally proposed budget — and an operating budget just over $405 million, which is about $592,000 more than the initial spending plan.
