When must a municipal budget be amended and what is the procedure for doing so?
A municipality must amend its budget
to change amounts of appropriations
stated in the budget or the purpose for
which the money will be used. A two thirds vote of the entire membership
of the governing body is required to
amend a budget, and the municipality
must either publish a Class 1 notice of
the amendment within 15 days after
amending the budget or post a notice
of the changes on the municipality’s
website within 15 days after any change
is made. Wis. Stat. § 65.90(5)(a).
