One thought on “MKE County: County Committee Mollified on Couture”

  1. Patricia Jursik says:

    Of course Rick Barrett should appear before the county any time he is asked. The citizens of Milwaukee County have given Barrett a unique opportunity supported with public land and public resources. He is not doing this as a favor. Let’s not forget the only representative citizens have in overseeing the use of these public resources are elected officials.

    I do hope we see the Couture rise; but it seems to me that developers are taking a victory lap before the victory. They still can not close on this deal. And the time limits have run. I know how difficult it is to deal with HUD and think the EDC committee has to be reasonable on time lines. But lets not act hypercritical of government process. When developers decide to build on public land, asking for public money, they should be big boys and know what is in store for them, whether they wear socks or not.
