As you are probably aware, the 2018 Milwaukee County Park System adopted budget includes $1.7 million to be derived from new parking fees to be incorporated in a number of parks and parkways.   
What can be done about this?  Is it too late to reverse this situation?  Honestly, we don't know. 
All we can do at this point is fight it as well as we can.  To do this effectively we need your support.  Please pass this notice on to your friends, neighbors and anyone else you think will take action.
We ask that you contact your County Board Supervisor and the County Executive's office to voice your opposition.  The following link will take you to the County Board web page where their contact information is available:
