Do you want to subsidize the billionaires’ Bucks arena? Make your voice heard:

PUBLIC HEARINGS: Room 301-B of City Hall, 200 E. Wells St.
Mon., Aug. 31 at 4 PM  Steering Committee. Comptroller’s report on subsidy costs.
Tues., Sept. 15, 9 AM  Zoning, Neighborhoods and Development Committee
Wed., Sept 16, 9 AM  Finance and Personnel Committee
Tues., Sept. 22, 9 AM Vote by Common Council in its chambers, Third Floor, City Hall

Before you go, please review economic outcomes of sports arenas in other cities – not good for taxpayers! In addition to the article links below, do a search yourself. The rich get richer when taxpayers give them land and money to build sports arenas, sometimes destroying established local entertainment venues. If you cannot attend these public hearings, please urge your representatives to vote against building a new arena.
