Items of Intetest to D1, Board of Estimates (Finance Committee)

March 27, 2017 1:51 PM



Alders have received many emails about this item. These opinions have been largely from residents outside of District 1. I would like to hear from constituents within District 1. Please feel free to send your response to ALL ALDERS as well. 

Authorizing the City to reimburse legal fees to Chief Michael C. Local, as allowed under Dec. 62.09(7)(e), Wis. Stats., and amending the 2017 Adopted Operating Budget to appropriate $21,953 from the Contingent Reserve to Direct Appropriations.


Authorizing the execution of a contract with MSA Profession Services, Inc. and the expenditure of up to $90,000 for Survey of Condition (Blight Study) Services for the creation of Tax Increment Districts (TIDs) and Redevelopment Districts. 


2017 Neighborhood Grant Program - Planning, Community,Economic Development 

The proposed resolution authorizes execution of grant agreements for 2017 Neighborhood Grant Program. The 2017 program awards $26,800 to various neighborhood organizations. The total 2017 budget is $30,000, consistent with prior year funding levels. Budget authority for the program is included within the Planning Department's  2017 Adopted Operating Budget. District 1 was not awarded a grant this year. Let's work together to draft our shared vision for activities for District 1; activities that will promote strong neighborhood, community enhancement projects, leadership and capacity building activities. As Alder of the District, it has always been my heartfelt goal to build strong communities where neighbors are not in fear of each other.  I ask that we work together to push down the walls that exists between our communities. District 1 is diverse, we have a wealth of talent and experience within the District. My goal is to work toward leaving no one behind!!

If this is a value you share, and if interested, I invite you to the table. It does take all of us working together to change course directions.
