Transportation: Could Federal Grant Revive the Jobline?

Still, Dimitrijevic questioned why the county couldn’t support the “jobline” as it was called, with the grant funding. The jobline was an inter-county bus service funded by the settlement of a civil rights lawsuit. The service in question was taking workers to jobs in Waukesha and Washington counties, and was shuttered at the end of August. “I’m not gonna sit here and act like it’s all cool. It’s not cool. This is an injustice,” she said.

Milwaukee County Ends Contract Over Vendors Actions At Southern Border

Milwaukee County Supervisor Marina Dimitrijevic said she contacted DHHS after a constituent raised concerns about the company profiting directly from family separation and detention policies.

"Milwaukee County should not be in the business of contracting with anyone that profits from the Trump administration's divisive and inhumane family separation and detention policies," Dimitrijevic said. "I commend the administration for terminating our partnership with this billion dollar family separation empire."

Milwaukee County is ending its 25-year contract with Southwest Key — a national nonprofit organization — because of the group’s operations at the southern border of the United States

Transportation: Could Federal Grant Have Saved Bus Routes?

Dimitrijevic questioned why the grant was for expansion of services while bus routes were being cut. “It’s very odd to me that we would use CMAQ money for the (mobile) app, which I like, but I feel like we need less app because we have less routes that are gonna be available.”

“I’m completely dissatisfied with this entire application,” she declared.

Balancing Act

Good info for those who weathered the water main break in Bay View over the weekend:

“We received over 600 calls for reduced pressure, water quality, and water in the roadway on Saturday due to the water main break on S. Chase Ave. There was a reduction in pressure when the break occurred that resulted in calls reporting low or no water pressure in the Bay View neighborhood.

When the pressure in the main decreased, MWW Operators responded by turning on an additional pump to increase the pressure within 3 minutes, and pressure levels through the system were restored shortly thereafter. We are reviewing data to evaluate exactly how long it took to get to typical pressure levels.

Specific to lead service lines, MWW recommends flushing household plumbing if affected by a main break repair. During repair, the shaking related to construction may cause lead to be dislodged from the service line. Please follow the instructions below:

1. Remove aerators from the end of every faucet and rinse any particles from them.

2. Start in the basement or lowest level and work your way to the top floor. Fully open each cold water tap and allow the water to run.

3. Run the water for 10 minutes. Start at the top floor and turn off the water at each faucet, finishing in the basement.

4. Re-attach aerators to the faucets. The cost to flush four taps for 10 minutes is about 16 cents.

We also include information on flushing in the Lead -Safe Water Guide distributed regularly in billing inserts and available on our website at

https://city.milwaukee.gov/ImageLibrary/Groups/WaterWorks/Lead-Service-Lines/Lead-SafeWaterGuidewebsite.pdf

Constituent questions related to the occurrence may be directed to MWW Customer Service Center at (414) 286-2830 or the 24 hour Control Center, (414) 286-3710.”

Milwaukee County supervisors want answers on pesticides used in parks

As a mother of young children, I share constituents' concerns about the use of chemicals where our families eat, play, and work, especially since courts have ruled that some pesticides cause health problems. It's time for Milwaukee County to have a clear, easy to understand policy that reflects our commitment to safe parks for everyone.

The County ultimately wants the Parks department to be more transparent about their pesticide policies.
