On Monday, the Landmarks Commission will be reviewing several applications from Third Lake Ridge property owners and will receive an informational presentation about the proposed demolition of 801 Williamson St. The City County Homeless Issues Committee will get an update on the Homeless Day Resource Center and review the Mayor's latest initiative to combat homelessness.

On Tuesday, the Council Organizational Committee (CCOC) will establish a subcommittee to review police policies and procedures including use of force.

77. 43730 Authorizing the City Parks Superintendent or his designated representative to apply for a Temporary Authorization Permit (TAP) from Wisconsin Department of Transportation for a temporary fence installation within the State-owned rail corridor, including language indemnifying WisDOT and the operating Railroad. (6th AD) Sponsors: Marsha A. Rummel  

From the resolution: 
"The Parks Division is proposing to install a temporary fence within the WisDOT corridor adjacent to Central Park, at the request of the Wisconsin Southern Railroad (WSOR) who operates on the rail. The temporary fence would improve safety for pedestrian and park users and will decrease the amount of trespassing within the rail corridor.  The temporary fence will be maintained until such time as a permanent fence can be erected.  WisDOT requires the City to obtain their Temporary Authorization Permit (TAP) for work on rail right of way, which includes standard language indemnifying WisDOT and the Railroad. City APM 1-1 requires Common Council Approval whenever the City indemnifies another party."
