Milwaukee Co. economic development director to step down


MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - The current Milwaukee County economic development director says he will step down, rather than go through the confirmation process again.

Brian Taffora’s job will be eliminated at the end of the year, then re-created with slightly different wording in the contract.

Members of the county board are reportedly trying to force him to comply with the county’s residency requirement.

Taffora lives five miles outside the country line in Cedarburg. He had a four-year waiver, but the re-wording would force County Executive Chris Abele to appoint him again, starting the approval process.

Taffora put his house on the market last January, but has been unable to sell it. His last day on the job will be a week from Friday.
