✨Today we shine our Superhero Saturday spotlight on the City of Milwaukee’s Carpentry Staff!
Within the Department of Public Works (DPW), the Bridges & Buildings Section currently staffs seven City Carpenters to help maintain 188 City-owned bridges and over 100 building assets. City Carpenters construct concrete formwork for Bridge repairs as well as perform rough and finish carpentry related to building remodeling and maintenance.
An essential function of the City Carpenter’s role is the board up work they perform. Carpenters are on call 24/7/365 to board up properties that are left unsecured to protect property as well as to ensure the safety of the general public. Many such calls are placed in the middle of the night, always with a Carpenter mobilizing to assist on the other end of the line.
The bulk of our Carpenters’ recent workload has been fabricating and installing COVID-19 protective barriers for City Health Department offices and buildings, the City Hall complex, and other field offices and work locations. This work will be instrumental in providing a safe, socially distant work atmosphere for City employees during a global pandemic.
Now more than ever, we appreciate the hard work of our Carpenters and their unwavering dedication to maintaining the City’s infrastructure and operations. Congratulations, team!

🎉Today we are delighted to honor Tiffeny Marsh for our Feature Friday!

As the Human Resources Assistant in the Department of Employee Relations (DER)-Compensation, Tiffeny processes tuition reimbursement applications and fields related questions, coordinates training sessions, updates the DER website, addresses incoming email messages that come to the Employee Relations inbox, and assists the DER-Staffing Division with posting employment opportunities. She is truly grateful to work for the City of Milwaukee, where she is able to bring energy, confidence, and a welcoming personality to her coworkers every day!

Tiffeny, who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Healthcare Management with a Minor in Human Resources, has had the pleasure of working in multiple departments and classifications throughout the City of Milwaukee, from Service and Maintenance to Administrative Support to Paraprofessional. From each experience she has gained knowledge, and to every department she has been an asset.

Tiffeny’s experience allows her to interact with so many and to tell them how great working for the City has been for her. She has shared her success story with the City of Milwaukee as an employer that promotes growth and development. She even markets the City on her personal page whenever new opportunities arise, as she feels a sense of pride when helping others succeed. Tiffeny says that as an African American woman, she has been able to learn and grow with the City of Milwaukee. She affirms, “I’m here for the People; I’m here for my City! Teamwork makes the dream work.”

Tiffeny is the mother of four beautiful children. She is also an accomplished author, publishing her first book, entitled Overcoming Obstacles, a story that illuminates her personal journey through seemingly overwhelming setbacks into a lovely place of hope and peace. She relates, “Though life is often wrought with trials and tribulations, these obstacles do not have to define us or defeat us.” This was an opportunity to share her testimony and inspire others. Her hobbies include journaling, uplifting others, and being a good listener. To know Tiffeny is to love her; congratulations on this well-deserved honor!

Sherman Phoenix opened in 2018 and hosts more than 25 businesses. This building has been a major generator, bringing the community together as a hub for businesses and culture. With increased pedestrian traffic and concerns of reckless driving, we wanted to build upon this investment by improving our public space.

We were pleased to announce the completion of three reconfigured intersections and additions of pedestrian islands, curb extensions and ADA crosswalks. This project is a prime example of the City’s ongoing efforts to implement Complete Streets, a policy that helps make streets safer for people of all ages and abilities, regardless of their mode of transportation.

Additional improvements to the area include newly installed landscaping completed by Walnut Way to beautify Fund Du Lac Ave, and a vibrant green infrastructure project at the building's entrance made possible with support from the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District and the Fund for Lake Michigan.

To date, 360 individuals in Milwaukee County have died from COVID-19, and over 14,000 people have tested positive. We have work to do as a community, as a state, and as individuals to flatten the curve and stop the spread of the virus.

We have an obligation to take the necessary steps to make Milwaukee a safer place for everyone. Today, I signed the Common Council’s adopted ordinance requiring face coverings in public spaces, both indoors and outdoors.

The ordinance goes into effect Thursday, July 16, and will be enforced until the Moving Milwaukee Forward order is lifted. In addition, the City of Milwaukee Health Department will coordinate the purchasing and distribution of free masks for the community that will be available upon request.

Under this ordinance, anyone ages three and older must wear a face covering when they find themselves around people outside of their household. When outdoors, the face covering must be worn when you are within 6 feet of another person.

Exceptions are made for individuals with conditions or disabilities for whom no other accommodation can be offered and under certain settings.

The City of Milwaukee is committed to protecting our citizens’ right to vote and protecting their health. We especially want to encourage Milwaukee residents to vote absentee ballot by mail because it is the safest way to participate in our democracy while protecting yourself from COVID-19.

We are beginning the necessary education and outreach far in advance of the August 11 election to ensure everyone has the opportunity, resources and assistance to vote absentee and stay home on Election Day.

Starting this week, you should expect to see a SafeVote postcard in your mailbox with written and visual information on how to register to vote and request an absentee ballot. You can also access this information at myvote.wi.gov. In addition, residents will have the opportunity to visit one of eight Milwaukee Public Libraries to receive assistance with the registration or absentee process.

The SafeVote plan will also expand the number of physical absentee ballot drop-off locations at libraries, where voters can deliver their ballot and obtain a witness signature. Plans are still evolving to further expand drop-off locations ahead of the November 3 General Election.

This week we are proud to spotlight Ernest Stubbs as our Feature Friday employee. Ernest started working for the City of Milwaukee as an Electrical Services Laborer in 2013, and after his first year he transferred to the Sanitation Division as an Operations Driver/Worker (ODW). Ernest moved on to become a Special Equipment Operator (SEO) shortly thereafter and continued training on City equipment, with a desire to become a City Instructor. In 2017 that dream became a reality!

Ernest states that training and instruction has always been something he’s had a passion for and enjoys. One of the reasons he appreciates working for the City of Milwaukee is the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people. Furthermore, he recalls that as a kid growing up he was fascinated with watching people operate heavy equipment; he is now able to work with a wide variety of equipment within his career field with the City. Colleagues appreciate his open, friendly, and helpful personality.

Ernest not only works FOR the City of Milwaukee, but he works ON the City of Milwaukee by training drivers to be safe while operating equipment, keeping the equipment in good repair by performing pre-trip inspections, ensuring repair orders are completed, and always maintaining a cordial and professional manner when serving the public. To assist drivers with the standard of care residents expect for the City of Milwaukee, he also periodically drives specialized equipment such as the Vacall to repair city streets and keep sewers draining properly and the Street Sweeper (a.k.a. “The Broom”) to keep our streets clean. In addition, Ernest performs special assignments, such as serving as a subject matter expert during the hiring process for City workers.

We appreciate all your hard work and dedication to ensuring that the City of Milwaukee maintains a high level of operational success!
