Mayor Tom Barrett

I am pleased to announce that we will be launching our second round of the Milwaukee Restart Program. The grant program uses federal relief funds to assist local businesses that have suffered as a result of the pandemic. Up to $10 million dollars will be available to established businesses with 20 or fewer full-time employees and an annual revenue of less than $2 million.

If you previously received a Restart grant, know that you can apply again. We are encouraging several new categories of businesses to apply, including: home-based businesses, food trucks, licensed daycares and state-licensed group homes. Also new, the money can now be used for some rent and utility payments, as well as winterizing outdoor spaces.

Applications will be accepted online at milwaukee.gov/restart from October 1-8. The Latino Entrepreneurial Network, Milwaukee Urban League and Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative - WWBIC are all available to assist small businesses in preparing their applications.

✨This week’s Feature Friday honoree is Erica Olivier of the Milwaukee Health Department (MHD)! Erica has worked in social services for nearly 15 years, serving children with Autism, performing in-home case management, working in child protective services, and coordinating professional development for child welfare. She has always had a passion for serving families to tackle health disparities, child maltreatment, and infant mortality. In her current role as Maternal and Child Health Director, she is able to develop policies and interventions that support children and families and that prevent and address disparities.

Born and raised in Milwaukee, Erica understands both the beauty and pain in her city. She has strived to help people to understand the reality of the historical disenfranchisement of black and brown people, the need to protect and serve vulnerable and at-risk populations, and the importance of being invested in community-building. She has worked on the frontlines, as a trainer/mentor, and now in upper management in hopes of having a larger reach and impact in Milwaukee.

Erica started with MHD in 2018 as the Program Manager for the Empowering Families of Milwaukee (EFM) Program. In 2019, the Direct Assistance for Dads (DAD) Project was placed in her charge as the “sibling” program to EFM in an effort to streamline servicing, meet grant objectives, and improve the efficacy of service to the public. This year, she was promoted to Maternal and Child Health Director, overseeing not only EFM and DAD, but also the following programs:

- Parents Nurturing and Caring for their Children (PNCC)
- Newborn Hearing and Congenital Disorder Screening
- Birth Outcomes Made Better (BOMB) Doulas
- Women, Infants and Children (WIC)
- Community Healthcare Access Program (CHAP)
- Strong Baby/Title V Program
- Safe Sleep Program

Our thanks and congratulations to Erica Olivier for embodying the spirit of public service in the City of Milwaukee!

✨It’s Superhero Saturday, and today it’s all about the Port Milwaukee Operations Team!
In ordinary times, our team operates port workboats to keep rivers clear of large floating debris, maintains and repairs port-owned railroad infrastructure and other equipment, maintains port buildings and grounds, and unloads cargo. Since the pandemic began, our team has been truly extraordinary, temporarily using an “operational shift” model to maintain Port service to customers and tenants, continuing to handle domestic and international cargo from destinations worldwide, and maintaining uninterrupted 24/7 operations.
Two of our Saturday superheroes are John Dermyer, Port Crane Operator, who facilitates the handling of million tons of cargo each year, and Clayton Ceballos, Port Operations Technician, who is the lead captain of the “Joey D,” the Port’s working tugboat on Milwaukee Harbor. Together, they have 18+ years of experience at the City of Milwaukee, and it shows!
So today we extend our thanks to the hard-working Port Milwaukee Operations Team … kudos for a job well-done!

✨Today we are pleased to shine the “Feature Friday” spotlight on Aycha Sawa, the first female Comptroller in the City’s history!!
The Comptroller is the independent office that is the fiscal watchdog for the City, responsible for sound financial reporting, including grants, payroll, and financial statements; decision making; analysis; debt issuance; and audit of the Mayor’s departments. They do not report to the Mayor or to the Common Council. This means that Aycha is responsible for thinking about the future health of the City.
Aycha came to the City with governmental auditing experience with Baker Tilly as well as the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation. She started in 2010 as an Auditor with Internal Audit in the Office of the Comptroller, and then served as Lead Auditor and then Audit Manager until 2015. She led the division to become Yellow Book-compliant (federal audit guidelines), which entailed a lot of rework and rewriting of policies and procedures. Aycha became Accounts Director in 2015, where she worked on the financial reporting/accounting side as opposed to the audit side. Finally, she became Comptroller Matson’s Deputy in early 2017, where she served in that role running the office alongside the elected Comptroller for three years.
Aycha made the decision to run for Comptroller as Compt. Matson decided to retire and was elected April 7, 2020, during the pandemic. Comptroller Sawa is a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Internal Auditor. She loves using her knowledge and experience to look out for the City and its taxpayers through an independent lens, keeping government accountable and financially healthy.

✨Today’s “Superhero Saturday” gives us the opportunity to laud a hard-working team of front-line workers! The City Hall Information Booth is staffed 24/7 with a group of five dedicated Communication Assistants who have not skipped a beat in providing continuous service, handling incoming phone calls and serving in-person customers during this pandemic.
Comprised of Tracy Fowler, Gerri Williams (pictured), Leland Williams, Donna Johnson, and Judy Powell, this group assisted in redirecting residents’ calls to many of the other City departments that had closed temporarily during the beginning of the pandemic. In addition to answering phone calls, they have also continued to handle in-person inquiries, as the Market Street entrance has remained open during regular business hours. Residents regularly enter City Hall to drop off property tax payments, business license permits, and Milwaukee Water payments. Many have questions as to where the drop boxes are located or seek guidance regarding payment options, and our team members are happy to explain the alternatives.
Over the past several months, the Communication Assistants have overcome challenges of their own, yet have been very flexible, ensuring that the Information Booth has been continuously staffed. Their work ethic and dedication is commendable and is very much appreciated!

✨It’s Friday, a great day to feature Kathy Thornton, who just started a new position as the Business Services Specialist in the Department of Administration-Community Development Grants Administration Office!
This November, Kathy will mark 21 years of City of Milwaukee service. From 1999 to 2003, she worked in the Milwaukee Health Department for the W.I.C. Program. Next, she served in the City Election Commission for seven years. In 2010, she started with the Department of Public Works-Infrastructure, where she worked for ten years. With each job, she has learned the various roles and responsibilities of City Departments and expanded her knowledge of how each department plays its unique part in keeping the City great. She serves City residents and internal customers with respect and professionalism and calls her colleagues her “City of Milwaukee family.”
Kathy has a husband and three children who all currently reside in Milwaukee. Having both grown up here and raised their children here, she says that, “Milwaukee will always be a part of me and my family.” She enjoys participating in church activities, such as the annual back-to-school block party and the “Adopt-A-Site for Elections” program, wherein she has the opportunity to work with the City’s voters. She considers the Milwaukee lakefront to be one of the greatest jewels of the city, where she spends time relaxing and enjoying the beautiful view of Milwaukee.

#LaborDay has always been a day to honor and celebrate the contributions of America's working people. This year, those contributions could not be greater. It's clear that throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, union members and essential workers have gone above and beyond in providing excellent care and critical services to keep our City moving.

Please set aside 10 minutes to complete the 2020 Census online or over the phone. Reach out to friends and family to encourage them to respond if they haven’t already done so.

Remember, this count occurs just once every ten years and determines how much federal funding our city receives. Take advantage of the extended deadline and do your part to help us improve Milwaukee’s response rate.

✨Talk about superheroes! During the health emergency, the City of Milwaukee Assessor’s Office, 42 strong, has been working diligently to assess all of the City of Milwaukee’s properties as directed by Wisconsin statutes. The administrative staff has been providing customer service and updating ownership records. The appraisal team has been busy answering questions about the 2020 assessed values.

Since the beginning of the Stay at Home order in early March, most staff members have been working from home. They have concluded the assessment period from when Assessment notices were mailed to property owners in late April. Following State Statutes, there was an Open Book Period, wherein property owners had the opportunity to object their assessed value. While Wisconsin Statutes designate the close of Open book as the 3rd Monday in May, they provided an extension to June 8th due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 assessments, which reflect 2019 market activity, were objected to at a rate of approximately three times the previous year. Staff members have been working around the clock to handle this high volume to ensure that all objections are efficiently processed and reviewed.

We would like to recognize all of the Assessor’s Office staff for their dedicated service. Thank you for the work that you do and the vital role you play in making sure City records are accurate and the public is helped to the highest degree! #WorkInMilwaukee #WorkForMilwaukee #WorkOnMilwaukee #SuperheroSaturday #AssessorsOfficeMKE
