Week of June 8 Meetings of Possible Interest to District 2

June 7, 2015 1:55 PM

The week of June 8 has items of possible interest to residents of district 2 at the Public Safety Review Committee, the Emerson East-Eken Park-Yahara Neighborhood Plan Public Open House, the Street Use Staff Commission, the Transit and Parking Commission, and the Board of Park Commissioners. The city meeting agenda items are open for testimony from the public should you be interested in weighing in.  I also appreciate hearing from you on any items on which you have a particular interest or concern so please send me an email or give me a call.

Also, committees and commissions have an opportunity at the beginning of each agenda for Public Comment on items not on the agenda.  If you have something you want to share with a committee or commission, you can use the Public Comment time to do so.


Public Safety Review Committee

5:00 June 9, 2015
GR-22 City-County Building

Please note that I introduced the following ordinance to help address the problem that I've heard about a number of times of people riffling through vehicles (with the probably intent of stealing things of value if they find them) by making it a crime to enter the vehicle without permission even if the person does not end up finding something of value to take.

Agenda item 4

Creating Section 23.07(11), renumbering Sections 23.07(11) and (12) to (12) and (13), amending Section 23.07(13) and amending Section 1.08(3)(a) of the Madison General Ordinances to prohibit the entering of a vehicle without the owner's consent and to create a bail deposit for violation thereof.
