Thank you to Mayor Tom Barrett, County Executive Chris Abele, and Milwaukee Sewerage District Executive Director Kevin Shafer for putting together a plan that will save Milwaukee County taxpayers millions of dollars and finally tear down the Estabrook dam.
The proposed plan will keep taxpayers from being on the hook for an estimated $8.1 million in repairs over the next 20 years.
Despite the obvious benefits of enacting this plan, County Board Supervisors like Theo Lipscomb are still opposed to the demolition of the dam. Call Theo Lipscomb at 414-278-4280 and tell him it’s time to tear down the Estabrook dam.
