Milwaukee alders demand answers from MPD, MFD for slow response times for non-emergency calls

Alders said they have heard from constituents and have experienced themselves the extensive wait time for an answer to a non-emergency call.

"They say they're waiting over 30 minutes for non-emergency," Ald. Marina Dimitrijevic said. "And at which point they hang up and call emergency."

"I called and I was on hold for 42 minutes," Ald. Scott Spiker said.

Data on average wait times or other information is not available because it's not tracked by any department, though there are efforts to change that. Still, the lack of information is a concern.

"I'm very disturbed by that," said Ald. Dimitrijevic, the committee chair. "That's our lifeline, those are the people that are speaking up and watching their neighborhood."

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) --Milwaukee Police and Fire Department leaders told city leaders obstacles like staffing shortages and rising crime are factors leading to long response times for non-emergency calls.The issue was

Yesterday I visited another D14 business, Goodland Extracts LLC.

Did you know that we are home to one of Milwaukee’s only h**p processing and CBD oil producing facilities?

I took a tour with Ryan Pattee and entered the world of CBD!

Using h**p from Wisconsin farmers, Goodland Extracts employs a state of the art h**p extraction process and proprietary CBD extraction technology.

With a 95% + extraction rate, Goodland’s proprietary technology nearly doubles that of market standard technologies, and makes them the most efficient Wisconsin h**p processor.

The final product is natural, Wisconsin-based, h**p derived CBD. It can be used as a powder for foods or even an oil or roll on for skin to reduce muscle and joint pain as well as reduce anxiety and many other benefits.

DCD is kicking off a neighborhood plan for Bay View to involve residents, business owners, and other stakeholders around a variety of important issues including development and land use, housing affordability, historic preservation, neighborhood beautification and local business support.

The goal? To ensure Bay View continues to be a unique and desirable place to live, work and play in Milwaukee.

“Our current strategic plan for the area is more than a decade old and so much has changed here. We are at a crossroads in Bay View, and have an opportunity to be the architects for our future and reimagine our public and private spaces. By planning together we can lead by sharing what we want to see here rather than what we do not. I invite everyone to participate in this unique, inclusive process to build a vision for our future together,” explains 14th District Alderwoman Marina Dimitrijevic.

In this edition of “Around the 14th” I visited a Bay View staple, just a few steps from my house Goodkind!

I sat with owners Lisa Kirkpatrick and Katie Rose on there tranquil outdoor patio to discuss their inspiration for their ever changing menu of drinks and food. Paul Zerkel is also an owner and not pictured here.

Lisa and Katie use what is most in season and believe me you can taste it! I ate delicious food called a fairytale and drank a belladonna!
See the menu for exact details but the eggplant was mouth watering and the drink used yellow pepper syrup creating a divine pairing of their current, local harvest.

The staff works as a united team and enjoy serving up craft cocktails and amazing food! Congratulations to these owners for keeping all staff and patrons safe while working hard to survive and thrive as a small business during the our most unpredictable times-we are lucky to have you in D14!

Honoring exceptional residents of District 14 is one of the very best parts of this job.

Today I delivered a special city certificate to Jens Duschak.

He and friends held lemonade stands and toy sales which raised funds for Children’s Hospital, Humboldt Park and the Bay View Neighborhood Association.

Jens says, “I like to give money to people that do good things. “

I wish we had a thousand more Jens and it was a pleasure to recognize the outstanding kindness of this child from our neighborhood today!

Email us at [email protected] if you know a ⭐️ in D14 who deserves a city certificate and a visit!

(Espanol abajo) DPW Storm Operations Ongoing Through Weekend

The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works (DPW) will continue its response and cleanup to the Tuesday weather event by working throughout this weekend. Following the August 10, 2021 storm DPW has received more than 1,300 tree service requests, 70% that are of critical level which include downed trees/branches blocking the public right of way and those that have fallen on buildings, houses, or vehicles.

Since the immediate aftermath of the storm, Forestry has worked non-stop deploying no less than 36 field staff and management during the overnight and 59 during the daytime, with roughly 30 pieces of equipment. Moving into the weekend we continue to have staff working around the clock. For a 12-hour-shift Saturday, Forestry crews will be supplemented with Sanitation crews picking up brush on curbs using 12 skid crew operators.

We continue to work with We Energies on trees and branches tangled in downed electric wires. Downed wires in-or-near the work zone must be removed or de-energized before crews can safely begin cleanup.

Electrical Services also continues to work 24/7 in close coordination with We Energies in dealing with the high number of outages at traffic signals and street lighting. We anticipate that more problems will reveal themselves once power is restored, and there is no way of knowing the full extent of the issues at this time.

To report an electrical outage or check the status of an outage:

Outage Map:
https://www.we-energies.com/outagemapext/

Residents performing cleanup this weekend
• The City of Milwaukee Drop Off Center accepts up to 6 cubic yards of brush, including logs and larger branches at no charge. Spoiled food that is bagged will also be accepted, double-bagging spoiled food at the Drop Off Center or in garbage carts is encouraged.
Drop Off Centers are open Tues-Sun 7 a.m – 3 p.m. Visit milwaukee.gov/dropoff for locations. Open to City of Milwaukee residents and property owners, ID required.
• Sanitation Services will collect up to 2 cubic yards of brush, branches less than 6” in diameter and less than 4’ in length, curbside upon request at no charge. Request a brush pickup online at milwaukee.gov/clickforaction or by calling 414-286-CITY.
• Brush should be at your regular collection point for service. Please do not put brush or other debris in the street for collection.
Parking
If parking access is blocked by downed trees and you need street parking, go online to milwaukee.gov/parking to get up to 3 days permission. For permission more than 3 nights due of storm damage, call 286-CITY to request additional nights.

We ask for the public’s patience in responding to the outcome of this severe weather event. And to report issues that need city service, the most efficient way is via the UCC by calling 286-CITY (2489) or through one of their digital channels found here https://milwaukee.gov/ucc.

El DPW continuará operaciones durante el fin de semana

El Departamento de Obras Públicas (DPW) de la Ciudad de Milwaukee continuará sus labores de respuesta y limpieza ante el evento climático del martes trabajando durante el fin de semana. Después de la tormenta del 10 de agosto de 2021, el DPW recibió más de 1,300 solicitudes de servicio de árboles, de las cuales el 70% son de nivel crítico e incluyen árboles y ramas caídos que bloquean el paso del público, y árboles que cayeron sobre edificios, casas o vehículos.

Inmediatamente después de la tormenta, la oficina forestal ha trabajado sin parar enviando al menos a 36 trabajadores y gerentes durante la noche, y 59 durante el día, con aproximadamente 30 piezas de maquinaria. Durante el fin se semana, seguiremos teniendo personal que trabajará las 24 horas. En un turno de 12 horas el sábado, el trabajo de los equipos de la oficina forestal se verá suplementado por el equipo de sanidad que recogerá maleza en las aceras, usando 12 cargadoras compactas.

Seguimos trabajando con We Energies sobre árboles y ramas enredados en cables eléctricos caídos. Los cables caídos en la zona de trabajo o cerca de ella deben ser retirados o desconectados antes de que el equipo de trabajo realice las labores de limpieza con seguridad.

La unidad de servicios eléctricos también sigue trabajando las 24 horas, en conjunto con We Energies para abordar el alto número de apagones en las señales de tránsito y luces de la calle. Anticipamos que surgirán más problemas una vez que vuelva la electricidad, y no hay forma de saber la amplitud de los problemas en este momento.

Para reportar un apagón eléctrico o para verificar el estado de un apagón, visite:
https://www.we-energies.com/OutageManagement/Status/CurrentOutage
Mapa de los apagones:
https://www.we-energies.com/outagemapext/

Residentes que realizan labores de limpieza este fin de semana
• El centro de entrega de la Ciudad de Milwaukee acepta hasta 6 yardas cúbicas de maleza, incluyendo troncos y ramas grandes, sin costo alguno. La comida dañada que esté en bolsas también se aceptará. Se anima a usar doble bolsa para la comida dañada o en carros de basura.
Los centros de entrega están abiertos de martes a domingo, de 7 a.m a 3 p.m. Visite milwaukee.gov/dropoff para obtener las localidades. Abierto a los residentes y dueños de propiedades de la Ciudad de Milwaukee. Se requiere presentar documento de identidad.
• Los servicios de sanidad recogerán hasta 2 yardas cúbicas de maleza, ramas de menos de 6” de diámetro y de menos de 4’ de largo, en la acera y previa solicitud, sin cargo alguno. Solicite la remoción de maleza en la acera en línea, en milwaukee.gov/clickforaction o llamando al 414-286-CITY.
• La maleza debe estar en el lugar acostumbrado de recolección de basura. Le pedimos que no ponga maleza ni otros desechos en la calle para su recolección.










Estacionamiento
Si el acceso al estacionamiento está bloqueado por los árboles caídos y necesita estacionarse en la calle, visite milwaukee.gov/parking para recibir un permiso de hasta 3 días. Para un permiso de más de 3 noches debido a los daños de la tormenta, llame a 286-CITY para solicitar noches adicionales.

Solicitamos la paciencia del público durante nuestra respuesta ante este severo evento climático. Y para reportar problemas que necesiten el servicio de la ciudad, la forma más eficiente es hacerlo a través del UCC, llamando al 286-CITY (2489) o a través de uno de sus canales digitales que pueden accederse aquí https://milwaukee.gov/ucc.

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
