D6 Items of Interest Week of September 3, 2018

September 1, 2018 3:01 PM

Highlights

The Common Council has not met for a month. At Tuesday's meeting, we will have three new alders appointed to the Council as we enter into budget season. Welcome Alders Michael Tierney (D16), Keith Furman (D19), and Allen Arntsen (D13). On Tuesday Mayor Soglin will introduce his 2019 executive capital budget. It will be available Tuesday afternoon in Legistar.

Currently my Wi-Fi router is disabled and my laptop can't connect to the internet. I haven't figured out how to copy and paste on my tablet so this is going to be a very brief update! You can find meetings in the city's legislative information center and on the city's official weekly meeting schedule. From these links you can look at every meeting agenda, the ones I tell you about every week. 

If you haven't done so already, please sign up for email alerts at City of Madison/flooding. You will get daily updates about conditions, street closures, opportunities to volunteer and how to seek assistance. The community is ready to help you if you need help. Williamson St will continue to have two lanes of traffic in each direction. Flood Emergency Parking options have been extended at city ramps. The Madison Police Department will provide more traffic enforcement on Williamson. As everyone likely knows, more rain is predicted over the next several days so please continue to be prepared. 

On Tuesday, September 4th, the Council will take up Mayor Soglin's proposal for a motor vehicle registration fee. The Finance Committee and the Common Council Executive Committee both failed to approve the proposed ordinance. Due to the state's 'uniformity clause', it is impossible to avoid a flat fee, which is very regressive. Several alcohol licenses are up for approval – including Café Coda On Willy Street, the Seversin's Citgo at Milwaukee Street and Nook on Atwood. The Winnebago Arts Café will be re-referred. The New Mr. Roberts proposed name change got referred at the last council meeting back to the ALRC, the ALRC won't meet till the end of September. At the end of the council agenda is the report of the risk manager. I've never told you about this section of the agenda before. Several neighbors who live on Oak and Hermina Street, suffered extensive damage from a water main and sewer main break earlier this summer, and have filed claims against the city. The city's risk manager following the advice of our insurance company is recommending these claims be disallowed. More Oak and Hermina St neighbors are filing claims this week under introduction of new business. Between the water main and sewer line break and impacts of flooding from so-called acts of nature, many Madisonian's have incurred thousands of dollars of damage to their property. I started to discuss options with the City Engineer and Risk Manager before the city wide flooding began and I will continue to work on options. Link to 9/4/18 Common Council Agenda.

On Wednesday, September 5th, I am holding a rescheduled Winnebago Arts Café neighborhood meeting. It will take place at Trinity Lutheran Church (1904 Winnebago Street) in the parish hall at 7 pm.
 

On Thursday, September 6th, we will start the second round of historic district meetings with the First Settlement Historic District at 5 pm and the Third Lake Ridge Historic District at 7 pm. The meeting will be in the MGE conference room at 601 Railroad Street. We will hear back from the consultants who have been working on updating standards for each district.. Amy Scanlon, the city's preservation planner, has taken a new position at the city. In the meantime, Bill Fruhling and Rebecca Cnare will provide staffing for the landmarks commission and the historic district preservation plan update process. Amy has been a wonderful staff person to work with and I will miss her humor and expertise.
