In Brief: Cudahy mayor raise tabled, Tosa school chief wrong on Obama speech

Just a few news tidbits that caught my eye this morning:

  • The Cudahy Common Council tabled a proposed ordinance that would have tied Mayor Ryan McCue’s pay raises to the raises received by the city’s three largest employee unions. Under the proposal, McCue would have gotten a 3% pay raise for 2010.
  • Wauwatosa School District Superintendent Phil Ertl has said if he could do it over again, he would have allowed students to view the live broadcast of President Obama’s speech to students last week. Ertl added, “(In) hindsight, I think I would have made a different decision on it,” Ertl said. “As I look at it, it is our president of our country and the opportunity for him to speak without disruption, I think, would have been a decision I could have made that would have been beneficial to everyone in our district.”
  • There’s still no update on the negotiations between tenants of the Lake Bluff Apartments and the City of South Milwaukee. Sources tell me negotiations are ongoing, and that the situation could be resolved any day now.
