WI COUNTY COMMITTEE FACES BUDGET STRUGGLE FOR NEW STADIUM
Published October 10, 1995
The Milwaukee County Board Finance Committee Monday held off an attempt to take money for the new Brewers Stadium out of the county's '96 budget, according to the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. County Exec F. Thomas Ament had proposed paying $4M of the county's $18M contribution to stadium costs next year taking that money from the '96 county budget. Gretchen Schuldt writes this indicates the stadium project could run into "rough sledding" in the County Board, with officials complaining that "unfunded mandates" imposed by the state can potentially drive up county costs and property taxes (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 10/10).
