Waukesha DA to investigate Norm Bruce
Norm Bruce, the owner of Martha Merrill’s Bookstore and the President of the Business Improvement District, is under investigation by the Waukesha District Attorney’s office. Waukesha DA Brad Schimel is investigating Bruce’s alleged attempt to artificially increase the cost of an open records request made by me in February.
This is from an email from Schimel:
I have reviewed the materials you faxed over yesterday relating to your claim that Mr. Bruce artificially inflated the copying fees relative to your Public Records request. Your complaint sets forth probable cause to suspect an intentional violation of sec. 19.37(4), and I am opening up an investigation to confirm the information reported.
BID Board of Directors meetings are the second Thursday of each month, so the next regularly scheduled meeting is April 12th.
I’m sure there will be more GuitarTown discussion at that meeting, too, as the subject of insuring the giant guitar artworks placed on public property has become problematic.
