On Thursday, the Milwaukee County Board approved major initiatives that benefit all Milwaukee County citizens.

“There is no question that this has been a productive four-year term,” said Board Chairman Theodore Lipscomb, Sr. “We were able to accomplish a great deal, and today we approved some important measures.”

Among the issues addressed by the Board on Thursday:

  • $500,000 in funding for repairs to the Mitchell Park Domes. Following a public hearing attended by hundreds of people, the Board made a commitment to repairing the Domes.
  • Approval of the partnership between Milwaukee County and the Milwaukee Art Museum for the purchase of the O’Donnell parking structure.
  • A new redistricting process reforming the way Milwaukee County draws its supervisory districts. The measure depoliticizes redistricting and transfers that task to an Independent Redistricting Committee.

“The next term will have new challenges, but the past four years have been highly productive for the citizens of Milwaukee County, and we are proud of what we have achieved,” Lipscomb said.

A special meeting of the County Board will be held to consider vetoes by the County Executive on March 24.
