A great initiative that our #milwaukeeforestry and MKE Parks teams are proud to partner on!

In late June, MMSD and City of Milwaukee Forestry planted 15 new trees in Douglas Park on Milwaukee’s northwest side! These trees are part of a bigger project, Improving Our Neighborhood One Tree At A Time, where over 500 trees were planted that will soak up over 255,540 gallons of stormwater in any given storm and help improve air quality by removing 4.58 million pounds of carbon dioxide every year (the gas that causes climate change). www.mmsd.com/what-we-do/green-infrastructure/stormwater-trees

I’m so glad the the streets in front of houses can’t get 1 pass of the plows right down the middle of the street in the Lincoln Creek area between 51st and 60th. I love watching the plow truck go by on Lincoln Creek with its plow up. #taxdollarsatwork
As a Thank You to our Tow Truck and Snow Plow drivers, stop in for a fresh, hot cup of coffee on US!!
Is everyone's garbage pickup pushed back this week? We are in Timmerman West and our scheduled day is today. I only see info that Tuesday's pickup was suspended due to plowing.
City of Milwaukee, why hasn't recycling been picked up in over 6 weeks??? We haven't had that much snow, it hasn't been super cold, what gives? I've been having to fill my trash bin with recyclables because my recycling bin has been full since Christmas.
So who's the cali transplant that thought non emergency road work on Burleigh was a good idea to start in november... in wisconsin....
For the love of (enter your belief), are they almost done with the drilling for that apartment complex on Van Buren & Kilbourn?!?!?!? 😫😁
I had a few questions and opted to send you a private message. Please respond when you have a minute! Thank you very much! ☺️
Bunch of crooks, you are. $25 appeal fee for a $50 fine that wasn't warranted!? Didn't "clear the snow from my sidewalk." Sure buddy, not only was it completely cleared, I received confirmation from the workers who were sent to clear my neighbors sidewalk, "nah man, you're good." Appeal form asks to "attach document" - how am I supposed to attach a video!? Get up to speed and stop robbing people you money grabbing swindlers!
When will the city be addressing their employees regarding the coronavirus and which should be staying home and which should be reporting to work? The employees haven heard anything! This is ridiculous!
