✨On this, our final Feature Friday of Women’s History Month 2022, we are pleased to recognize Syreeta Woodley, Water Field Supervisor!

Ms. Woodley began her career with the City of Milwaukee 21 years ago as a Seasonal City Laborer. In 2003, she commenced her journey in Water Distribution as a Water Repair Worker I. In 2008, she was promoted as the first Black female to Water Repair Worker II. In 2014, she became a Water Chief Repair Worker, the first female to hold that position within the Milwaukee Water Works, and by 2015, Ms. Woodley became the first Black female to climb through the ranks of Water Distribution, rising from Repair Worker I into management.

As Water Field Supervisor, Ms. Woodley helped establish Water Distribution’s Lead Service Line Replacement Program, developed and implemented various staff training programs, and is part of the team developing Targeted Universalism processes to be used by Water Distribution and to serve as a template throughout the Department of Public Works (DPW).

Says, Ms. Woodley, “I am dedicated to applying ways to be more thorough and efficient so that the entire department benefits. I am currently enrolled in the University of Wisconsin-Madison Extension Local Government Education Program. Through hard work and a continuous drive to improve relationships, systems, and work climate, I have served the City of Milwaukee.”

Many thanks to Syreeta Woodley for her on-going commitment to her department and to the city’s residents!

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!
