Alder Rummel’s Updates
D6 Items of Interest Week of April 17, 2017
Highlights: The CCOC Subcommittee on Police and Community Relations meets Monday to review our draft recommendations to the Common Council. The committee has been meeting since Sept 2016 and we are getting very close to making our final recommendations. This meeting was added last week, and since I am chair, it means I will not be able to attend the John Nolen Corridor study meeting at Monona Terrace. On Tuesday, the 2017-2019 term begins with a noon swearing in and election of Council leadership. I served for Council Pro Tem for the last year and will be running for Council President for the upcoming year. Tuesday night is the first meeting of the new council. For the first time in at least 30 years, there is only one new rookie alder, D11 Arvina Martin, and for the first time since I have served on the Council, there are equal numbers of women and men. Alder Martin is also the first member of the Ho-Chunk Nation to serve on the Madison Common Council.

Common Council Presentation of 2018-2023 Transportation Improvement Plan
5:30p, room 201 CCB
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a coordinated listing of short-range transportation improvement projects anticipated to be undertaken in the next five-year period. The TIP is the mechanism by which the long-range transportation plan is implemented, and represents the transportation improvement priorities of the region.
The TIP is not a final schedule of project implementation. The time frame shown in the TIP is a "best estimate" at the time of TIP development. The timing of projects can change due to lack of available federal or local funds, delays in project development activities, changes in implementation priorities, and other factors. The annual updating of the TIP allows for these adjustments to project schedules and changes in relative priorities of transportation improvement.
