Parks Supporters Express Funding Needs
The co-chair of the task force, Jay Williams says efforts are underway to find an equitable way to support the diverse needs of the greater community. \"The arena is an important need and it's important beyond the Bucks. It's important for the community that we have a world class venue. But the cultural and entertainment aspect that's globally important whether it's the museum, the zoo, some of the private institutions. They're all valuable.\"
The task force recently estimated it could cost taxpayers $34 million each year for 20 years to build a new arena and make improvements to four other cultural institutions in Milwaukee.
