View from the Parks: Managing Parks and County Budgets

October 2, 2022 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Sheldon Wasserman, Chair of Mke County Board’s Parks, Energy and Environment Committee and Guy Smith, Milwaukee County Parks Director.

Parks staff has had to endure decades of budget cuts and is endeavoring to manage a very large backlog of deferred maintenance. Staff has done an excellent job securing and managing grants and, in recent years, has been proposing a variety of park-sharing/revenue-generating measures to manage our parks for the benefit of all county residents – many of whom depend on the parks for recreation. Supervisor Wasserman is a strong parks advocate. Understanding the perspectives and pressures on the County Board and the County budget is crucial to understanding the current parks circumstances.  Host: Bruce Wiggins

In-Person or Online at 10:00!

In-Person: In Max Otto Hall.

First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee

For over 50 years, the Sunday Forum lecture series has showcased provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: politics, the environment, health issues, the arts, education, and more. The Sunday Forum is held at 10:00 a.m. September through May. Speakers give a 45-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. The content of Forum lectures does not necessarily express the viewpoint of First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, but are meant to offer thoughtful topics which our members often pursue further on their own.
