Ozaukee County Supports Compact, Shows It Is Not Waukesha

The Ozaukee County Board votes 28-1 to urge adoption of the Great Lakes Compact.

Pretty impressive - - and a genuine act of regionalism, both within the state and across the Great Lakes.

Maybe the Waukesha Water Utility could direct its cadre of paid consultants, lawyers, public relations lobbyists and scientists who are busy crafting Lake Michigan diversion plans to press instead for the County Board to approve the Compact.

That would be even more impressive.

Perhaps the Waukesha County Board needs to vote on a similar resolution. The results may help voters in contested seats this spring on a new and downsized County Board.
