Once again, Muskego's senior taxi service will be able to finish the year in the black with the help of $5,000 from the city on top of thousands of dollars from local businesses and community groups and a subsidy by Waukesha County.
On Tuesday, Muskego approved the $5,000 contribution from funds left over from tax incremental finance districts that have met their goals and are now closed.
While the city has provided funding from closed TIFs almost every year since 2008, Alderman Dan Soltysiak called for the city to set up a separate fund that could be budgeted to meet such expenses if groups that provide community services get into a bind. By the time they come to the city they would likely find that every city dollar is already spoken for, he said.
That suggestion will be discussed soon during budget development for next year.
