 All in all, most items passed unanimously, 16-0.  (We are down by two until the April 2013 election, when new occupants for the two vacant seats will be elected by the people of the districts.) One of the most consequential items was voting to increase the amount we would pay outside legal council to look at the public trust doctrine issues surrounding the proposed construction on the current site of the Downtown Transit Center. Of course, that won’t be what gets the headlines… and even that passed unanimously in the end.

Results from the June 28, 2012 Milwaukee County Board meeting

We had a very good meeting of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors today. Among the highlights are that we voted on items which will save taxpayers roughly $45,000 a month in interest payments, and we approved an agreement to implement the development of a two acre chunk of the Park East land. That will directly translate into jobs and idle land coming to life.

This incarnation of the County Board has only 18 supervisors. One effect of that is that if we vote 9-9 on an item, 9 ayes and 9 noes, the item fails. That happened a few times today. The first time was to override the county executive’s veto of a parks capital spending plan, the second on a proposal from the sheriff’s dept. to lease space at the MKE Regional Business Park (the former 440th Air Reserve unit at Mitchell Field).

In today’s meeting we had a lot of good energy and vibrant debate. It felt really good to be part of a democracy today!

Thanks,
Jason.
