Supervisor Taylor Disappointed that County Board Rejected the Sale of O’Donnell Parking Structure
"I am very disappointed that a deal could not be made."
Milwaukee, WI – Milwaukee County Supervisor Steve F. Taylor today issued the following statement regarding the County Boards 9-8 vote against the sale of the county owned parking structure to Northwestern Mutual.
“I am very disappointed that a deal could not be made. We had the chance to move forward with the sale and now with Northwestern Mutual’s decision to look elsewhere we have missed our opportunity to sell this property.
“The O’Donnell Parking Structure is a financial anchor around our necks, and it’s a burden that is ultimately the responsibility of County taxpayers. Northwestern Mutual is an outstanding corporate partner that has a long history of working with this community. They have the resources to invest into this property, money the County just doesn’t have.”
“Instead of investing $5 million into our park system, we now have to ask the taxpayers of Milwaukee County to find $6.5 million to fund differed maintenance costs that could have been avoided.”
