A Message from Joe Parisi: My 2019 County Budget is built upon the tenets that see us through fear and strife and on a path to promise and optimism. I’ve seen this county change a great deal in my 58 years of life. As the decades pass, our shared values and principles remain constant - we are a determined, resilient, strong community compelled by our unwavering care for one another.
Dane County Executive
The budget increases the operating portion of the county levy by 0.35%. This is the lowest of any of my budgets as County Executive. We estimate the county share of property taxes on the average Madison home would decline nearly $12 with the passage of this budget. The operating budget totals $557,337,626. The capital budget is $63,228,300, bringing the total budget to $620,565,926.
