PUBLIC TO GET A SAY IN FUNDING FOR NEW BREWERS STADIUM?
Published August 25, 1995
Milwaukee County property taxes "would likely be tapped" to repay $18M borrowed to finance infrastructure related to a new Brewers stadium, according to Gretchen Schuldt of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. Milwaukee County Board Finance Committee Chair Richard Nyklewicz "hinted" at a possible referendum on the stadium. Nyklewicz noted that they will wait to see "what the Legislature does" before making any decision (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 8/25). Opponents of the stadium argued yesterday that the price of a new stadium would increase when interest costs are added. Critics charges that under the funding structure being pushed by the team and WI Gov. Tommy Thompson, costs would triple with taxpayers liable for $530M of the estimated $750M tab (AP/MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 8/25).
