Vrakas: Chapter Two

From the outward appearances, Waukesha County Exec Dan Vrakas is making the right move on taxes:

County Executive Dan Vrakas has directed the sheriff and other department heads to develop spending plans for 2007 that would limit property tax increases to less than 3% in some instances.

...Vrakas said he wants to stay within the limits of a state legislative plan that would have capped tax levy increases at the rate of new construction in Waukesha County - less than 3% in recent years.

Not all county departments are being asked to tighten their belts dramatically next year. Richard Tuma, director of emergency preparedness, said he has been advised that his department will get new funding to improve the widely criticized countywide emergency dispatching center.

Dan Trawicki, the Sheriff, is not particularly happy; nor is the UW-Extension coordinator in Waukesha County.
