The crime numbers for 2023 are in, and Milwaukee is a demonstrably safer city than it was the previous year. FBI Part 1 crimes, both violent crime and property crime, were down here in 2023. While numbers are important, I want everyone to feel safe in Milwaukee, so we are working and focusing on driving crime lower.

Our Homes MKE program is transforming more than 120 city-owned, tax-foreclosed houses into ready-to-move-in homes. $15 million in American Rescue Plan Act funds have been dedicated to the effort. We talked about the program today, highlighting this property on North 13th Street, which is now for sale. Emerging developers like Adrienne Hunter of Servant Manor are key to the program’s success.

• $5 million for lead hazard reduction activities
• $700K for Healthy Homes-related activities
• 273 Units will receive lead hazard reduction (up to $40K per unit)

In politics, business, or philanthropy, Wisconsin has lost a major figure -- in all of these fields.
Herb Kohl was an accomplished businessperson – who was instrumental in elevating his family’s business.
He was a politician who brought focus, humbleness, and accomplishments to the United States Senate. There, he showed great interest in increasing public safety and serving the needs and interests of this state.
And his philanthropy elevated teachers, schools, and quality-of-life all across the state.
Oh, yes, he saved the Bucks basketball team for Milwaukee.
I think Herb will be remembered for his friendliness and generosity.
As a teenager in a YMCA program, the Senator invited me and my mentor to a Bucks game – and I sat right in front of him there.
When I first became Mayor, the Senator took time out to meet with me and offer some very valuable advice.
To anyone who met him at his State Fair Milk House, he was engaging and inquisitive.
And, his humility was notable – for a man who certainly could have afforded the greatest luxury – it was not unusual to find him at a table in a downtown café. He did not put on any pretense of importance or snobbery. He was always Herb.
We will remember Herb Kohl as a towering figure of our modern history.

I appreciate all the Milwaukee property owners who are paying their taxes during this busy season.
A very large percentage of these payments are invested in our police and fire departments to make our city safer.
Tax bills can be paid online, by mail, telephone, or in person at the City Treasurer's Office or at one of the City DropBoxes around City Hall.
The Office of the City Treasurer is open Monday through Friday from 8:15 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. They will be closed on December 29, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day.
