Who paid for this? Hope it didn't come from tax money. Have all kinds of problems in the city and we are installing marble planters on Wisconsin Avenue. How about separating the storm and wastewater laterals so people can enjoy the lakefront? People would actually use the beach if they didn't have to worry about swimming in human waste. As far as the statue, not sure that what the positive is.

At first I thought it would give the city a poor image. Today I think it represents a city with a sense of humor, a city with a smile on it's face, a city where you can have a good time.

I honestly think a proper positive image and message of Milwaukee could have been communicated differently. I also wonder if tax dollars paid the bill.

Tax dollars in Milwaukee County pay for everything! Pays for fired police officers and corrupt politicians and county employees when they turn 45. This statue is the least of worries for Milwaukee County tax dollars. I think people better start looking in other directions at how the tax dollars are used everyday and put in the pockets of undeserving indivduals.

Only in Milwaukee - Another example of a backwards city looking for recognition through a "cartoonish" character on a sitcom. Pitiful.

I doubt a life size statue of the fonz would cost more than 100 bucks,
a 3 foot long plank of wood should be fine.
just draw his stupid face on it and bang it into the ground
