Public Safety and Health Committee to discuss city’s lead abatement program on Thursday

At the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Common Council’s Public Safety and Health Committee at 9 a.m. on Thursday, July 15, the committee will hear a communication file from the Milwaukee Health Department providing a status update on its lead abatement program.

Committee chair Alderwoman Marina Dimitrijevic – who introduced the file that is co-sponsored by Alderman Cavalier Johnson and Alderman José G. Pérez – looks forward to a thorough discussion.

“The city has had challenges with the lead abatement program in the past, including recently. We owe it to our residents, particularly our youngest and most vulnerable, to discuss the lead abatement program’s strengths, weaknesses, areas in which it can be improved and plans moving forward,” she said. “I would invite residents to provide their thoughts by using the e-comment feature available to them, and make sure to tune into the discussion that will take place on Thursday.”

Beginning in September, the Public Safety and Health Committee will return to a fully in-person format.

Over 20 years ago I sat in this gallery as a City Hall intern. I gave many tours of our beautiful City Hall and often dreamed about my future.

Today I sit on the other side, the Common Council Chambers.

This past year has taught me to savor each moment and celebrate the light.

I’m here today in this chair first and foremost because the great people of the 14th District elected me to serve our neighborhood and it is a great honor.

After two long years of campaigning followed by the pandemic, it feels a bit more authentic than I could have imagined. Thank you to my family and husband Eduardo Jaime for the neverending support of a demanding and rewarding position that I take incredibly seriously.

I’m here today as a mother, daughter, wife, stepmother, sister, friend, neighbor, MPS graduate, much more but mostly as a lover of our city. Milwaukee has a way to disappoint you at times but you never give up on it. We will have honest deliberations in this chamber and it is here in the People’s House that we will vote on the largest investment ever to rebuild our city, together.
Let’s keep up the work!

Thanks so much to everyone who came out to our in person townhall meeting at the Humboldt Park Beer Garden tonight!

It was wonderful to finally see so many neighbors.

Special thanks to the city departments who came to meet directly with our constituents and answer questions: DCD, DPW, DNS, DPW-Sanitation, MPD, and MFD!

There’s nothing more American than democracy and I appreciate the opportunity to meet with the people who elected me to serve and respond personally to your concerns.

Together we will move Milwaukee forward.

What a day! In today’s “Around the 14th” we took a pause from eating and drinking to help families in Milwaukee!

We visited Milwaukee Diaper Mission on diaper distribution day. We helped pack and load hundreds of diapers and wipes for Next Door to give to families in need.

Did you know that Milwaukee Diaper Mission is 💯 volunteer run AND provides period supplies ?

Every child deserves to be clean, safe and healthy. No family should have to worry about where their next box of diapers and wipes may come from. We’ve seen families struggle before and during the pandemic so let’s do something about it. As a mom, I know firsthand how expensive diapers and wipes can be -it’s part of our own monthly budget!

I want to live in a Milwaukee where every baby has enough diapers and wipes and every person who needs period supplies has them readily available at all times.

We have provided free WiFi, food and now child tax credits to relieve families in this pandemic -let’s be sure children have all they need to not just survive -but thrive.

Dockless Scooter Operator Contact Info

The 🛴 post:

As I have said and demonstrated many times-I truly support all types of public transportation-especially anything that helps reduce cars on the streets.

The City has started their second pilot program including e-scooters. Our office has received numerous complaints during this pilot and we ask that you use these tools to file complaints with the pilot so that they can be properly complied and evaluated as the pilot concludes.

I am disappointed to see very little helmet use, minors riding scooters, scooters parked on sidewalks without allowing space for pedestrians or wheelchairs, and scooters driven on sidewalks.
We as a city need to get to the root of some of these issues such as creating more safe bike lanes and better road conditions for all.

Scooters Parked on the Sidewalk: Scooters are allowed to be parked on sidewalks as long as they provide a 5' accessible path.

Operators are required to notify users of this requirement by posting this information on each device. Scooters should not be parked in curb ramps, driveways, alleys, or bus stops. Additional details can be found in Section 11.7 of our Terms and Conditions. If issues are observed, they can be reported here:

Visiting milwaukee.gov/ScooterOperators
Selecting "Dockless Scooter Problems" from the home screen of the Milwaukee Mobile Action app (it's the second option currently)
Calling 286-CITY and selecting menu option 3 (the menu states "for problems with dockless scooters, please press 3")
We can track complaints via these methods and we also receive a monthly report of complaints received by operator.

Scooters are Driven on the Sidewalk: The first round of independent sidewalk counts are starting tomorrow and will go through 7/9. Full details of the counts and what the consultant will be doing are available here. In summary, any operator with more than 10% of riders on the sidewalk in Zone 1 will be prohibited from operating in Zone 1, and any operator with more than 10% sidewalk riding in Zones 2-6 will be required to show measurable actions towards reducing sidewalk riding, with the possibility of future prohibitions in those Zones. The results of these counts and required next steps will be shared with the operators by 7/14.

Affordable land and leasing costs, abundant fresh water, an educated workforce, low business costs and easy access to financing, technical assistance and efficient transportation have helped local businesses succeed and grow.

In today’s “Around the 14th” we visited Lion's Tooth, a female, immigrant and independently owned bookstore cafe.

So what’s with the name?
The name Lion's Tooth is a reference to dandelions, those stubborn masters of survival (from the French dent-de-lion).

Did you know that there is a rad Zine collection AND children’s area?

You can also join their fun happy hour Monday-Saturday 5-7 and grab a book, drink and snack- and soon take it all outside!!!!!

Last but not least you do not want to miss Bay View Gallery night with Milwaukee artist Ethan Krause brings his collaborative project The Famous Hairdos of Popular Music to Lion’s Tooth. Everyone is invited to join the fun and draw with us. Christopher Roberts DJs.

Shelly McClone Carriere and Cris Siqueira are waiting to welcome you!

Here’s how it goes. After two years of investigating Milwaukee, a naive buyer puts an offer on a City owned tax foreclosed house at 1129 N 13th Street with a requirement to relocate and occupy the house. List price $5,000.00. My offer to the city $16,133.00 with adequate POF of $101,000.00. The offer is declined. No, no other competing offers at this time. After 40 days, multiple corrections, several different listing agents an offer is finally accepted for $16,133.00. (this property changed listing agents 4 different times among 3 different listing agents) Very similar to the shell game on the corner, watch closely as you try to find who is the responsible listing agent. After over 155 text messages, 40 plus phone conversations and numerous emails with my realtor, I still have no idea when to close on the property. Everyone is quick to explain it will take months to complete after all the offices are closed and everyone is working from home. Day 42 of effective 45 days of a contractual agreement with the City. (Debra Mcolum Gathering relists house for $3,750.00, she then takes (steals) my $750.00 deposit and sends me a letter for non performance. (Closing instructions specifically states for the City of Milwaukee to order title work) It is Impossible at this point for the buyer to not perform other than not show up for a real estate closing. A phone conversation with City employee/agent Debra Mccullm Gathering, “I'm going by memory but the city does not order title work” and the real estate steer is complete. Never a closing and there was never gonna be a closing. Today 1129 n 13th street is now contingent with a price of $3,750.00. The twenty plus year Alderman, instead of a welcome or thanks it's’ Why? Why? Why? Would you want to? The Twenty plus year veteran Debra Mcculmb Gathering, sounds like an intern on the phone, who fully understands the process after 20 plus years working for the city. Amy Turmin, next runner up, knows exactly what's going on and refuses to produce any proof the city ordered title work as declared. Some other city employees said, “You picked the wrong house.” “Is there another one you're interested in?” “maybe they don't like you” I should have known when the word, “litigation” is listed more than once on the bidding results, or when a $20 bill separates the winning bid from the losing one. To the new City Attorney of Milwaukee: Good luck because change has know incentive here, it's just too profitable. Moral character has no value. The bosses always change and the longtime employees who don't have a boss, stay and keep running the show. No sense in crying over spilled milk. This is exactly how Sad America was created. Sad Milwaukee to those here responsible. John Lennon sang it best..Instant Karma’s gonna get you..join the human race. Peace, Jerry Frye
No Availability for COVID vax through City.milwaukee.gov/covidvax🤬🤬 Checked at 2:15.
WHY?
Dam your dumb
Since we are required to wear masks, and this is suppose to be so contagious, how come there are no bio-hazard bins around for disposal..
THANK YOU MARINA! YOU'RE SAVING LIVES!
Everyone on the common council is a joke. How is someone not wearing a mask harming someone who is when they are protecting themselves and I use the term protecting loosely because the boxes of masks even states that they do not protect from the spread of COVID 19. This is nothing more than another grab at power by the demented left. These mandates are not legal. They are unconstitutional and against ADA and HIPAA. Lets punish everyone but the protestors, rioter and looters who have gone weeks without masks. Appaerntly no one on the council follows the WHO and CDC because they are close to delisting this as a pandemic. But as long as I am on my soapbox... since masks are being mandated there is no reason to push mail in voting since we are all being force to mask up. This is only being done because the left handlers are pushing for this in hopes of stopping the Trump momentum. I've never seen such a bunch of un-American politicians as today's Democratic party being run by the Soros machine.
Suppose you can contact someone with the county and get the grass cut here. This is sad. I know not many people use this place, but it’s a nice spot for a social distancing picnic.
Congrats on the new position, I know you will take good care of your constitutes!!!!
I am looking forward to getting to know you as our Alderwoman. Welcome
