What’s next for the best of the best in Wisconsin?
What’s in store for the Wisconsin dell?
It’s been a rough few weeks for the Milwaukee Public Museum and a lot of its staff, as the city is now facing what’s known as the “discovery tax.”
It’s a new law passed by Milwaukee City Council that, if it’s passed, will effectively raise the museum’s monthly operating budget by about $2,000.
It’s part of a broader tax increase in the state of Wisconsin, which Gov.
Scott Walker (R) has called a “dead end.”
The state has also imposed a tax on the sale of certain types of recreational goods like beer and wine.
It makes up for a $1,500 annual tax that the state levies on businesses and residents.
In Milwaukee, the tax hike has been the subject of heated debate.
Some community leaders have said it’s not fair to levy a tax that doesn’t go to the people who actually pay for it.
Others, like the dell, have argued that it’s a tax hike that will spur economic growth and make Milwaukee a more livable city.
As for the della, it’s still a work in progress.
The museum is still trying to figure out what it’s going to do next, but the board is hoping to announce a permanent closure to the collection.
“The dell is an institution that represents the spirit of Milwaukee,” the museum said in a statement.
“Its future depends on the support and investment of the community and its employees.”
