MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Milwaukee County Board met on Thursday, April 24th to decide if there should be a referendum so voters can decide if they want to pay for a new arena.
“That was the buzz. I think a building could have fallen over and nobody would have noticed because everybody was talking about the sale of that team,” said Milwaukee County Supervisor, Deanna Alexander.
The Board spent the morning debating whether to keep a referendum asking residents if they’d support a new arena tax, or send it back to committee for changes.
“I do have a problem with sending it back to committee,” said Milwaukee County Supervisor, David Cullen.
