Milwaukee unveils new $20 million public library project

“Over the next five years, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is hoping to revamp the Milwaukee Public Library system with a $20 million proposal. The most notable project, announced Saturday, September 21st, is the replacement of four libraries — Forest Home, Mill Road, Capitol, and King. During tight financial times, Barrett says the city’s comptroller came up with a way to pay for the project. “By good management of our long-term debt and restructuring and taking advantage of refinancing over the last several years, we are not going to have to make, in this instance, cuts in other areas,” said Mayor Barrett.” (via FOX6Now.com)
