The board of directors of the WI Counties Assoc. voted unanimously Friday to oppose a state-imposed sales tax on Milwaukee and Waukesha counties to finance a new Brewers stadium, according to Sam Martino of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. The group did, however, pass a resolution endorsing keeping the Brewers in WI. Waukesha County Board Chair James Dwyer: "There is a feeling that this could set a precedent. We don't want to have new regional authorities dictating taxes" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 8/26). Figures released by the Greater Milwaukee Hotel & Motel Assoc. on Friday said the city of Milwaukee would have the second-highest tax on hotel patrons in the country if approved a stadium financing plan is approved (Mike Nichols, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 8/26). Columnist Dale Hofmann writes, "This is a vital project that's taken too long to gather momentum, and there are still plenty of people trying to slow it down" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 8/26).
