Take the City of Madison Government Structure Survey!

July 26, 2019 9:51 AM

You can help shape the future of the City of Madison's government. Please consider taking the survey below!

CITY OF MADISON TASK FORCE ON GOVERNMENT STRUCTURE

WHY DID THE CITY CREATE A TASK FORCE ON GOVERNMENT STRUCTURE?

Do you know when the City is making key decisions that will impact your neighborhood?  Or who is making those decisions?

Do you have the time, resources, or know-how to voice your opinion to City Government?

The Task Force on Government Structure is asking these questions and others to find out if changes to city government structure could help make the City work more effectively for all of its residents, and, particularly, for residents of color and low income.

WHAT DOES MADISON'S GOVERNMENT STRUCTURE LOOK LIKE NOW?

Madison's Mayor is elected every four years in city-wide elections and is responsible for, among other things, running the day-to-day operations of the City and proposing a city-wide budget to Madison's Common Council.   

Madison Common Council consists of 20 different "alderpersons" elected from 20 districts across the City.  The Common Council's responsibilities include making city laws and policy by passing resolutions and ordinances and serving on the City's Boards, Commissions, and Committees.  You can find your aldermanic district by address or map.

Finally, Madison has over 90 Boards, Commissions, and Committees consisting of nearly 700 alder and resident members.  These Committees make decisions and recommendations that affect city policy and administration.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

The Task Force wants your help to find out if this current city government structure works for all Madison residents --- or if changes could help make city government work better.
