County set to fire pre-emptive strike against arena sales tax PDF Print E-mail

Resolution opposing Milwaukee facility funding idea considered by board

    The Ozaukee County Board was poised Wednesday to make a pre-emptive strike in a possible fight against a regional sales tax imposed in Ozaukee as well as other counties to finance a new arena and convention center in Milwaukee.

    A regional sales tax that would help finance a replacement for the BMO Harris Bradley Center, home of the Milwaukee Bucks and Marquette Golden Eagles basketball teams, as well as the Milwaukee Admirals hockey team, has not been formally proposed, but a resolution that was to be considered by the Ozaukee County Board notes such a tax has been advocated by Milwaukee officials, business leaders and “media organizations.”

    Ozaukee officials, some of whom begrudgingly note that people who purchase goods and services in the county already pay a 0.1% sales tax to finance Miller Park in Milwaukee, appear unwilling to sit idly by and let the concept of a new tax pick up steam.
