  1. Tom D says:

    The headline is wrong. It should read “…Milwaukee County Transit SYSTEM…” not “…Milwaukee County Transit CENTER…”

    The meetings are at public libraries, not at the Downtown Transit Center.

  2. You’re right. I have to retype them when they come in and screwed this one up.
