Grothman Critical of MATC

WEST BEND, Wis. (WHBL) - State Senator Glenn Grothman is taking the Milwaukee Area Technical College to task.  The West Bend Republican says MATC is abusing the exemption for bonding to foil the state’s intended property tax freeze.  Grothman says MATC is using the exemption to fund post-retirement health benefits, not capital projects.  Grothman said he has received complaints from Ozaukee County constituents about the hefty property tax increase from MATC and he intends to introduce legislation which he hopes will be added to the state budget to bring the college’s non-operational levy back to what it was last year.  Grothman said he is a proponent of local control but the board’s abuse is unacceptable.
