Stadium Tax Barometer Sticking It To 'Em!!

No surprise here.

Stadium district officials say that, year-to-date, the district is about 7% behind last year's sales-tax collection amount. And with seven months left to report in 2009, the district has collected more than $1 million less than had been projected.

...Milwaukee County is down 6.7% compared with the same time period last year. Ozaukee County, normally considered a wealthy county, is down 2.2% compared with last year.
Also, Washington County is down 5.5%, and Racine and Waukesha counties are down 8.2%.

It's no longer likely that the tax will end in 2014.

Stick It To 'Em, Tommy!!
