Zweig Public Art Project to go to full council this morning

By - Apr 14th, 2009 08:19 am

Despite the efforts of outspoken detractors Bob Donovan (Ald., 8th District) and Joe Dudzik (Ald., 11th District) to kill the project in committee, a full house of supporters of the project that included Visit Milwaukee (title) Dave Fantle, Cultural Alliance Executive Director Christine Harris and many others, joined the project’s elected supporters – especially Nic Kovac (Ald., 3rd District) and Michael Murphy (Ald., 10th District) to rally sufficient support to move the project forward.

The Common Council meets later this morning. Public comment will not be permitted on the issue, but the council is expected to cast the votes that will decide the fate of the E. Wisconsin Ave. endeavor.
