Scrima to face same Common Council
In the one contested aldermanic race yesterday, Alderman Richard Hastings handily defeated Scrima-supporter Ron Kading. Scrima faces the same Common Council he did during last year’s city budget debates when he attempted to push through a mandatory garbage fee.
If the city is to have a zero-increase in the property tax levy, if that is Scrima’s goal for the new year, that means some other cuts are going to have to be made. That makes Scrima’s opposition to the consolidation of the city of Waukesha’s 911 communication center with the county’s 911 communication center even more curious.
It also means that the city’s policy of applying for access to Lake Michigan water will remain unchanged as well.
