FOUR-COUNTY SALES TAX MAY FINANCE MILWAUKEE STADIUM
Published September 8, 1995
A four-county sales tax gained support from state legislators Thursday as an option for paying for a new stadium for the Brewers, according to the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. WI state official James Klauser told legislators that by adding Washington and Ozaukee counties to the areas for a one-tenth-of- a-cent sales tax increase, it would end the need for the hotel- motel surtax in Waukesha and Milwaukee counties. This proposal was presented on the third day of four public hearings on the proposed new stadium (Steven Walters, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 9/8). TWINS LIKE WHAT THEY SEE: Sid Hartman writes from the Twin Cities that Twins VP Jerry Bell thinks Owner Carl Pohlad would be willing to invest money under the same "circumstances" as Milwaukee to get a new retractable roof stadium for the Twins (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 9/5).
