D6 Items of Interest Week of January 13, 2020

January 11, 2020 10:05 PM

Highlights: At Monday's Water Quality Technical Advisory Committee meeting, PFAS is on the agenda. Wisconsin Department Health Services staff have been invited to discuss the process for developing potential groundwater standards for PFAS and other currently unregulated contaminants (including chromium VI and 1,4-dioxane) in drinking water.  DNR staff have also been asked to share their perspective on what happens next with these recommendations for groundwater standards. On Tuesday, the Madison Alliance for Historic Preservation's  presents their "Proposed Historic Preservation Ordinance" at the Landmarks Ordinance Review Committee. Also Tuesday, the MNA Preservation and Development Committee will meet at WilMar for their monthly meeting. Austin Carl, the owner of Canopy, the nightclub proposed for 924 Willy St, will be able to attend. I held a neighborhood meeting last week but the owner was not able to attend and Steve Felland the general manager came instead. Over 40 people attended. My major take away was neighbors want the process to slow down and we would all like to see a business plan. We also learned that the restaurant-café portion of the business will require a conditional use process and approval by the Plan Commission. The café will be delayed. Canopy will be at the ALRC Wednesday, along with a new license for Garver Events. The license is being transferred to the Garver owners from Jonny Hunter. The Task Force on Municipal Golf in Madison Parks also meets Wednesday.

All residents who must park on the street the evening of January 11 into early morning of January 12 need to have their vehicles on the EVEN house numbered side of the street between the hours of 1am and 7am. Vehicles parked tomorrow night, the evening of Sunday, January 12 into early morning of Monday, January 13, should have their vehicles on the ODD house-numbered side of the street between the hours of 1am and 7am. Violations of the alternate side parking rules are subject to a fine of $60 throughout the entire City of Madison. Violators could also be towed.

 

Angela Trudell Vasquez to serve as 7th Poet Laureate for the City of Madison

Last week, the Madison's Common Council voted to appoint Angela Trudell Vasquez to serve as the next Poet Laureate for the City of Madison. Ms. Trudell Vasquez will hold the volunteer position from January 20, 2020 until January 16, 2022. The Madison Arts Commission reviewed all the nominations for Poet Laureate at their October 2019 meeting and made their recommendation based on the poet's productivity as a public poet, community and youth education, as well as her literary accomplishments.

Trudell Vasquez is a third generation Mexican-American Iowan, completed an undergraduate degree at Drake University, and received her MFA from the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She has built strong connections with the poetry community in Milwaukee while living there, and is building a similar community here in Madison.

Former Mayor Paul Soglin appointed Madison's first Poet Laureate, John Tuschen, in 1977 during his first term in office. Tuschen remained Poet Laureate for over 20 years. Former Mayor Susan
Bauman appointed his successor, Andrea Musher in 2001. In 2007, Mayor Dave Cieslewicz appointed Fabu Phillis Carter. In 2012, Mayor Soglin appointed Sarah Busse and Wendy Vardaman as Poets Laureate, and in 2015 he appointed Oscar Mireles. Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway approved the selection of Angela Trudell Vasquez to be the 7th poet selected as Madison's Poet Laureate.

Trudell Vasquez's first reading as Madison Poet Laureate is scheduled on February 6th at 6:00 p.m. at A Room of One's Own Bookstore, 315 W Gorham St., Madison WI 53703. The
reading is free and open to the public.

Verify Your Voter Registration Status

As of January 10, the Wisconsin Elections Commission has not issued any directives regarding voters listed on the 2019 ERIC movers mailing list and have not updated their registration status. The Madison City Clerk's Office strongly encourages voters to verify their registration status.

Voters with online access may verify their registration by visiting https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/ . Toward the top of the webpage, they may select "Search by Name" or "My Voter Info" to search for their voter registration. The website will prompt the voter to enter their name and date of birth.

Once the voter's registration information appears on the screen, the voter should look for a status of "You are Registered to Vote!" and should verify that the current address listed is accurate. If the voter sees a green button that says, "Click Here to Confirm Your Address," that means the voter was included in the mailing the Elections Commission recently sent to all voters it believed may have moved. (See the attached image for an example.) It is imperative that these voters click the green button to confirm their address, if accurate, or click the gray "Update Address" button to update their voter registration online. Voters without access to the internet are encouraged to contact the City Clerk's Office to verify their voter registration status.

Please share this info with family, friends and co-workers.

6 59057 Capital Needs Assessment

 

The Golf Enterprise Program (GEP) has historically been structured and expected to support both Operating and Capital Financial needs through revenues generated from course operations and has not been part of the City's Capital Improvement Plan.  Aside from irrigation upgrades in 2000 and the Parks Division's investment in Yahara's clubhouse, GEP has failed to invest in Capital Infrastructure for a number of reasons, and most recently due to lack of available funds within the program.  The failing infrastructure, including both course and building conditions as well as equipment, pose an increasingly concerning problem to the GEP's overall profitability as they have led to course closures and increased operating expenses as staff work to make repairs and short-term fixes to keep mission critical areas and equipment functional.  The Needs Assessment identifies all known capital investment needs as of today and anticipates the needs for reinvestment over the next decade in a manner to demonstrate the scale and scope of capital infrastructure necessary to operate 72 holes of municipal golf at four courses.
