Alderman Tony Zielinski has a resolution supporting Gov.-elect Evers' plan to increase minimum wage. tips.
As the minimum wage in Wisconsin has been unchanged since July 24, 2009, Alderman Zielinski says it is time to make a change: “For almost ten years our minimum wage has remained flat while costs of living have increased. It’s vital we start addressing this disparity once and for all.”

When pressed on many areas of his forthcoming budget, Evers offered few details -- including on transportation funding, an issue on which he campaigned to address.

The 2019 Milwaukee Marathon is operating under new ownership and management following issues with previous marathons including inaccurate course lengths. The new operation has a number of stakeholders including owner Rugged Races,Marquette University and Milwaukee Bucks.

The marathon will take place April 6 with the start and finish line at the Live Block, the plaza next to the Fiserv Forum.

The committee also approved a resolution that would open up monies to implement Complete Streets, a new DPW Milwaukee policy to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit.

Alderman Cavalier Johnson invites qualified real estate developers to submit proposals for a mixed-use project to replace the Capitol Library at 3969 N. 74th St. “With the new library being a catalytic community economic
development project, this is an exciting opportunity for a developer to help shape the future of this neighborhood,” said Ald. Johnson.

The RFP allows suggestions for a new site but must be within about one mile of the current Capitol Branch.

“After successfully redeveloping several library branches in recent years, we continue to improve library service and save ongoing operating costs while fully leveraging private and public dollars,” said Alderman Michael J. Murphy, a Milwaukee Public Library board member and whose district the current Capitol branch is located.

An information session to answer questions about the RFP will take place on January 14 at 2 p.m. at the Capitol Library (3969 N. 74th St.) in the Community Room.

The submittal deadline is January 29. More information about the RFP can be found at

It was an assignment straight out of the movie A Christmas Story. "I want you to write a theme: What I want for Christmas." It turns out, those essays were turned over to police officers at District 3 who took the wish lists and went shopping.

District 3 Officers are making the holidays bright after pooling their own money to buy presents from the wish lists of students at Milwaukee Public Schools Bethune Academy.

The students were selected for being engaging in class, having excellent attendance and staying off the naughty list!

Officers used their own money to purchase the gifts. Then they wrapped them and planned a surprise party for the 35 students.

Before the gifts were given out the students had cookies, ice cream and hot cocoa.

The Winter Wonderland Holiday Light display in the Garden District will be introduced today at 5 p.m. by Alderman Terry Witkowski and volunteers at 6th and Norwich. Last January, the Garden District Neighborhood Association put out a call to collect unwanted Christmas lights and light displays. The intent was to reuse them to make the annual tree lighting area brighter. The response was so great that the neighborhood association decided to decorate as much of the block as possible using volunteers and sponsors.

The nearly 100 lighting displays are can be seen by parking in the parking lot at 6th and Norwich and either walking the curving path along 6th Street, walking along Howard to the new path and light tunnel, and returning to the Farmers’ Market by that path.

Lights are on for six hours from dusk, daily until January 13.

The Common Council today approved legislation moving the city closer to having an anti-displacement tax fund program that aims to keep longtime residents from being displaced because of the development boom taking place in downtown Milwaukee.

“The unprecedented building boom (downtown) has brought a wave of new construction with many positive benefits, including population growth and an expanded tax base,” said lead sponsor Ald. Milele A. Coggs. “But it also threatens the character of the areas in which it is occurring and may displace longtime residents either directly, through removal of their housing units, or indirectly, through being priced out of their neighborhoods as gentrification occurs.”

The resolution – Council file #181287 – directs Milwaukee City Development (DCD) to develop a proposal for an anti-displacement tax fund program similar to the Atlanta Westside Future Fund Anti-Displacement Tax Fund Program, and to submit the proposal to the Common Council for review within 90 days.
