Milwaukee Ald. Murphy Renews Call For SEWRPC Withdrawal

Another call for getting the City of Milwaukee out of SEWRPC - - this time, from Ald. Mike Murphy, whose remarks are on the Milwaukee Rising blog.

Murphy cites SEWRPC's continuing failure to write a regional housing plan - - the last one was published in 1975.

A recent news story about the issue cited by Milwaukee Rising quotes the soon-to-depart SEWRPC Executive Phil Evenson saying the busy agency is chasing other butterflies to get to the housing study.

33 years is a long chase. Those must be some big butterflies.

Time for Milwaukee to get out of SEWRPC's net, as I have been arguing for some time.
