The building should be open tomorrow, Thursday, June 21, 2012, but employees should double check by calling the Milwaukee County Emergency Response Hotline, 414-278-3900, after 10pm tonight.
Since the County has closed this facility, all county employees working at this building will be paid for their regularly scheduled hours today.
