WE NEED YOUR HELP!
IN COLLABORATION WITH AREA PROPERTY OWNERS, WE ARE ORGANIZING AN AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM IN PARK EDGE/PARK RIDGE NEIGHBORHOOD FOR KIDS TO HAVE A POSITIVE PLACE TO BE AFTER SCHOOL THAT IS IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD;
The after school programming in the Park Edge/Park Ridge neighborhood is designed to reduce some of the idle time and negative behaviors that have been reported. We are collecting gently used games/items for the site. These items can be dropped off at the West Police District on Gammon Road. We are also planning a Christmas Community Dinner. If you are interested in volunteering or donating to help coordinate this programming effort please contact either Officer Magyera or myself.

Madison Fire Department staff has requested that the following information be forwarded to alders to share on.
Madison Is Now A 'Class 1' Fire Protection Community
Property Owners May Be Entitled To Lower Insurance Rates
The nation's leading supplier of data and analytics for the property/casualty insurance industry has named Madison "Wisconsin's newest Class 1 fire protection community." It's a distinction shared by only three other cities in the state.
The Insurance Service Organization (ISO), through its Public Protection Classification program, examined three areas: Emergency Communications, Fire Department, and Water Supply. Out of 105.50 possible credits in the ISO's scoring metric, Madison received 91.48 credits, placing the city among an elite group of 204 municipalities (out of 47,000) in the country that carry this honor (see: "Points of Pride" document.pdf). The new classification takes effect Thursday, December 1.
The public's ongoing investment in a progressive fire department, a robust and reliable water utility, and a responsive, technologically-advanced emergency communications center is now paying off by way of lower property insurance rates.
Most insurers use the ISO's Public Protection Classification Program when underwriting and calculating premiums for residential, commercial, and industrial properties; therefore, property owners in the City of Madison, Village of Shorewood Hills, and Town of Blooming Grove may be entitled to decreased rates.
Individuals can take advantage of this new classification by contacting their insurance agent and letting them know their community was just upgraded to an "ISO Class 1" ranking. Because each insurer uses ISO rankings differently, actual savings may vary.
