You will soon see a lot of yellow in Milwaukee County Parks. Dandelions sure, but also a whole bunch of construction equipment. Dump trucks and graders are just some of the gear workers will use to make much-needed repairs. The county plans to spend $14.6 million this year improving its parks, chipping away at a list of deferred maintenance needs totaling $300 million.
Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele's office confirms that Sue Black is no longer Milwaukee County Parks Director. No reason has yet been stated. Members of the Milwaukee County Board are not yet commenting, many saying they did not have advanced notice about Black's departure.
