More or less the effort from the La Crosse business group to help its members and customers deal with construction-associated headaches. Like limited street parking and not being able to get from here to there. Downtown Mainstreet's Robin Moses. "Great City. Growing Greater" is the name of her new motivational ploy of sorts to help her member businesses survive the massive transformation downtown and look ahead to the economic surge that the construction brings.
Bucks.......Taxes......Citizens. Good Mix?
Hard to convince taxpayers outside of the Milwaukee area that the state pitching in on a new Milwaukee Bucks arena is a good idea. But revenue secretary Rick Chandler, making a pitch for backing the governor's plan to fund the arena, says the funding proposal just makes business sense. He says, for every dollar the state plans to spend on the project, three dollars in income tax revenue will flow into the treasury Under the current plan, the state commits 80 million to the arena, while Milwaukee county and city taxpayers will put in another 170 million and the owners of the Bucks will pick up most of the rest of the half billion dollar tab.
