Alder Heck’s Updates

Week of April 15 Meetings of Possible Interest to District 2 and Farewell

April 13, 2019 11:42 AM

This is my last blog post as Alder.  Being your representative in city government and working with you on neighborhood and city issues has been an honor.  Being able to implement solutions and address so many of the concerns brought to me was a satisfying part of the job.  Addressing issues would not have been possible without the many committed and talented City staff. 

I have also truly appreciated the engagement of so many District 2 residents.  One vehicle for engagement and for influencing what and how things get done in our neighborhoods and in the city is through neighborhood associations.  District 2 is incredibly fortunate to have two strong and knowledgeable neighborhood associations, Tenney-Lapham and Capitol Neighborhoods. The engagement of individuals and of neighborhood associations helps make life in our neighborhoods happier, safer and all around better. 

On Tuesday, Patrick Heck will take over as alder of District 2.  I am confident he will do a fantastic job.  We are fortunate to have him as our new representative.

The week of April 15 has items of possible interest to residents of district 2 at the Committee on the Environment, the Common Council, the Economic Development Committee, the Alcohol License Review Committee, the Urban Forestry Task Force, and the Madison Police Department Policy & Procedure Review Ad Hoc Committee. 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.
