Alder Rummel’s Updates

D6 Items of Interest Week of January 20, 2020

January 19, 2020 1:14 AM

Highlights: Monday is the annual City-County observance for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr at Overture with music, local honorees and keynote speaker Joyce Ladner, more details below . The Final Report of the Task Force on the Structure of City Government is at CCEC on Tuesday. Also Tuesday, at the Common Council meeting, is referral of amendments to the Madison General Ordinance regarding Tourist Rooming Houses (AirBnB, VRBO and other short term rental platforms).  On Wednesday, the Transportation Commission will review the annual Neighborhood Traffic Management program with proposals for speed humps on the 800 block of Spaight and a traffic circle on the 1300 block of Spaight.

 

Last Wednesday, the ALRC referred the license application of Canopy, 924 Williamson St,  (Class B combo and 21+ Entertainment) to their February 19 meeting. The applicant discussed the changes he was seeking to the license: switch from 18 to 21+E-license, decrease food ratio to 25%, lower capacity to 296, open at 10a not 8a, and put a hold on plans for a café/coffee shop, second floor classroom, and outdoor patio due to conditional use requirements. During the discussion, one of the ALRC committee members questioned the lease prohibition against hip hop and urban music, the applicant stated he was interested in renegotiating the lease after the initial four month period and would revisit that. Assistant City Attorney Jennifer Zilavy noted the lease calls for the establishment to be a "restaurant/bar" which it is not. The applicant had provided a revised business disclosure to the MNA preservation and development committee at P&D committee's Tuesday meeting and a new security plan to Central District Captain Kelly Donahue before the ALRC but did not submit either plan to the ALRC or the alder. After learning Canopy's website advertised a soft opening as a private venue on Saturday 1/18, Captain Donahue contacted the applicant and advised what was permitted (no alcohol, no dancing), assuming that Building Inspection and Public Health have signed off on building inspections. MNA will discuss the application at their Board meeting January 20.

 

The City of Madison has declared a snow emergency on January 18, 2020. This means alternate side parking restrictions will be in effect this evening at 1:00 a.m. for the Snow Emergency Zone as well as the rest of the City of Madison.  Since this is a daytime plowing event, all Madison residents are encouraged to choose off-street parking options for their vehicles and trailers starting January 18 and lasting through January 20. Fewer obstacles in the road means plowing operations will be safer, faster, and more complete.  The snow emergency will remain in effect until at least 7 a.m. on January 20, 2020.

Parking on the Street Tonight (Saturday 1/18/20 into early morning of Sunday 1/19/20)
All residents who must park on the street tonight (the evening of January 18 into early morning of January 19) need to 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 punishable by a fine of $60 throughout the entire City of Madison. Violators could also be towed.

Parking on the Street Tomorrow Night (Sunday 1/19/20 into the early morning of Monday 1/20/20)
Vehicles parked on the tomorrow night (the evening of Sunday, January 19 into early morning of Monday, January 20) should have their vehicles on the EVEN house-numbered side of the street between the hours of 1am and 7am. Violations of the alternate side parking rules are punishable by a fine of $60 throughout the entire City of Madison. Violators could also be towed.

Other Parking Information
Residents are reminded that all daytime and signed parking restrictions will be enforced. That includes restrictions that ban parking on selected blocks in the downtown area and on the near east and near west sides. Parkers should pay attention to all parking signs.

During a declared snow emergency you can park for no charge at the City ramps from 9 p.m. until 7 a.m. If you enter before 9 p.m. or leave after 7 a.m. you are liable for any parking charges before 9 p.m. and from 7 a.m. until the time you leave.

 

DNR issues new fish consumption advisories in response to elevated levels of PFOS (PFAS) in fish tissue sample results. On January 15,  the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) issued a news release which identified fish from Starkweather Creek and Lake Monona with elevated levels of PFOS. DNR will be releasing new fish consumption advisories for Starkweather Creek and Lake Monona. In response to these results, Public Health Madison & Dane County will be publicizing the fish consumption advisories by putting up new signage at lake access points and along Starkweather Creek, hosting two public meetings, and sending a mailing to homes near the water.  Spanish and Hmong interpreters will be available, and one of the meetings will be recorded and available on their website. Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a large group of human-made chemicals found in firefighting foams, stain repellants, nonstick cookware, fast food wrappers, and many other products. One type of PFAS, called PFOS, can build up in the muscles and livers of fish at higher levels than other PFAS.  (https://www.health.state.mn.us/communities/environment/fish/docs/consortium/bestpracticepfos.pdf PDF  page 4)

Madison's drinking water wells draw water from a deep sandstone aquifer below the city, not from surface water. The Water Utility continues to monitor all wells for PFAS contamination and post
information on their website. One well has proactively been taken offline, although all testing results have been below interim guidelines set by the state. To limit future environmental contamination, the City has converted to PFAS-free firefighting foam.

Doug Voegeli, Director of Environmental Health of Public Health Madison & Dane County, will be at the Dane County Lakes & Watershed Commission meeting Thursday January 23  with a PFAS update (see below for meeting details)

City-County Martin Luther King, Jr. Observance

5-8p Overture Center Capitol Theater, 201 State Street

 

On January 16, Dane County Executive Joe Parisi and City of Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway announced Ada Deer and Kenneth R. Cole as this year's recipients of the combined City-County Humanitarian Award honoring Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The award winners were selected by the City-County Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission and are community members who reflect the values of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Both Ada and Kenneth honor the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through their efforts to serve our community and make it a better place for everyone," said Dane County Executive Joe Parisi. "Whether it be Ada's lifelong commitment to Native rights and education or Kenneth's emerging leadership in youth development and community organizing, both have accomplished great things and lift our community up. Ada and Kenneth's dedication to service make them excellent recipients of this award."

"I am really pleased to honor these two recipients," said Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway. "Kenneth Cole is the face of the new generation of leaders, and I look forward to watching him expand his circle of influence. And Ada Deer has been a leader and mentor to thousands of Wisconsinites for many years. She is a true inspiration."

The City and County will present the awards at the annual City-County Martin Luther King, Jr. Observance on Monday, January 20, at the Overture Center Capitol Theater, 201 State Street, Madison. The program will run from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.

The King Coalition is pleased to welcome Joyce Ladner as keynote speaker for the 35th annual King Holiday Observance. Joyce Ladner's life has been shaped through her firsthand involvement with the civil rights movement in Mississippi, including her work as a staff member alongside Bayard Rustin and other civil rights leaders that organized the March on Washington in 1963. As a teenager, she helped organize an NAACP Youth Chapter in her hometown, she was expelled from college for organizing a civil rights protest, and she was jailed for attempting to integrate an all-white church. She was a friend and worked with slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers, as well as civil rights pioneers Fannie Lou Hamer and Ella Baker. As a field secretary for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), she was on the front lines  of most of the major civil rights protests of the sixties. She was on the stage when Dr. Martin Luther King delivered the "I Have A Dream" speech. An eminent  sociologist, she was a pioneer in the study of the intersectionality of race, gender and class. Her book, Tomorrow's Tomorrow: The Black Woman was the first book  published in African American Women's Studies and is now an American classic.

 



Tuesday January 21

Final Round of Xmas tree collection

7a your curb

 

The Streets Division will begin the final round of Christmas tree collection on January 21, 2020. Residents who wish to have their trees collected at the curb should have them out and ready for pickup by 7:00am on January 21. Trees that have been set out at this time and in accordance to the below rules will likely be collected sometime between January 21 and February 7, depending on workload, weather conditions, and crew availability. Placing a tree to the curb after 7:00 a.m. January 21 may result in missing the final curbside collection opportunity. Trees set out late may not be collected until the regular brush collection begins in the spring. Wreaths, evergreen rope, garlands, and boughs will not be collected with Christmas trees. Do not place them at the curb for pickup.

Place these into the refuse container for disposal. Evergreen decorations like wreaths and so on likely contain wires that can damage the wood chipping equipment, and they may also contain an invasive species . Madison residents may also bring their Christmas trees to one of the Streets Division drop-off sites. The sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. on the southwest side and at 4602 Sycamore Ave. on the east side. The drop-off sites are open from 7:30am to 3:00pm Monday to Friday. Sites will be closed on January 20, 2020 in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.

9. 58945 Submitting the appointment of Matthew B. Mikolajewski for confirmation of a five-year term as the Economic Development Division Director.

 

10. 58895 Creating Section 9.29, amending Section 28.151, amending and creating portions of Section 28.211 of the Madison General Ordinances to create an annual permit for tourist rooming houses, to amend the supplemental zoning regulations applicable to tourist rooming houses, amend the definition of Tourist Rooming House and Bedroom, and create a definition for Primary Residence. Sponsors: Arvina Martin, Patrick W. Heck, Shiva Bidar and Marsha A. Rummel

 

Agenda Note / Legislative File No. 58895: Request by Ald. Lemmer to add additional referral to Board of Health for Madison and Dane County (2/5/20). Public Hearings: Plan Commission (2/10/20), Common Council (2/25/20).

 

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance creates a new requirement that individuals operating a tourist rooming house (TRH) obtain an annual TRH permit from the City. In the years since the City permitted tourist rooming houses the tourist rooming house agency has expanded and changed. With this expansion, staff has experienced challenges enforcing TRH regulations, including specifically the requirement that TRH operators obtain a public health license, pay room tax, and comply with applicable zoning regulations. Moreover, prospective TRH operators have expressed confusion over what regulations apply and who is responsible for enforcing them. By creating an annual permit requirement, this ordinance centralizes TRH requirements in one ordinance. Moreover, it requires TRH operators to submit documentation confirming compliance with applicable regulations and requires TRH operators to update this information on an annual basis. Under the ordinance, failing to do either of these things can result in permit denial or revocation.

 

Further, this ordinance specifically provides for TRH inspections so that the Zoning Department can ensure that a TRH is being operated in a manner that is consistent with the documentation the operator has provided. In the event that the operator violates any of the requirements in this permitting ordinance, the ordinance contains a process for revoking the TRH operator's TRH permit. This ordinance also makes several changes to existing TRH supplemental regulations contained in Sec. 28.151, of the Zoning Code. These amendments are necessary because as the TRH industry in Madison has expanded, it has become increasingly difficult for staff to enforce certain key provisions of the TRH regulations. For example, two critical provisions of the current TRH ordinance are that 1) the TRH must be the operator's primary residence, and 2) a TRH operator may only rent the TRH for 30 days per calendar year if they are not present at the time of the rental. The combined purpose of these two provisions is to ensure that the TRH operator is on premises the majority of the time a dwelling unit is being rented as a TRH and to prevent investors from purchasing properties for the sole purpose of renting out the entire unit as a TRH.

 

However, increasingly, staff is encountering situations where TRH operators either do not understand or purposely mislead staff with regard to whether a specific dwelling unit being used as a TRH is their primary residence. Other TRH operators have either failed to keep a guest registry or have been reluctant to share the required guest registry, making it difficult or impossible for staff to determine if TRH operators are exceeding the 30 days of rental days per year when the TRH operator may be absent from premises. Finally, other TRH operators appear to be purchasing or leasing properties in Madison for the sole purpose of renting it as TRH. Staff believes that the combination of the permitting ordinance and changes to existing zoning ordinances will lead to more effective enforcement of TRH regulations.

Depressing news from/for city staff about workplace culture. The Mayor is on it per a press release issued January 16: "Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway said survey results support the need for "immediate action and internal trainings" to improve the workplace culture.

"I am committed to ensuring a safe and respectful workplace environment for all employees."

61. 59130 Amending Sections 3.12(11) and 33.18(1) of the Madison General Ordinances to make the Community Development Division Conference Committee the final decision-maker for grants awarded under the Emerging Opportunities Program and making related housekeeping changes.

 

64. 59138 Repealing Section 33.11, amending Sections 33.23(2) and 33.31 of the Madison General Ordinances to eliminate the Committee on the Environment.

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This ordinance would eliminate the Committee on the Environment.  The Committee is currently tasked with making studies and recommendations relative to the City's urban environment, including the water, land and air quality.  The delegated responsibilities of the Committee on the Environment overlap and can largely be assumed by the Sustainable Madison Committee, or other Committees, or even ad hoc committees, as needed.

20. 58580 Approving the City Engineer's Backwater Valve Reimbursement Pilot Program.

 

The City of Madison Engineering Division has established a pilot program to incentivize the installation and maintenance of backwater valves on homes which do not currently have such a valve. The pilot program will offer participating homeowners a rebate of 75% up to $1,500 to have a backwater preventer installed in the event that it is determined that their property is not currently protected by a functional backwater valve. The pilot program will be available to all one and two unit properties that have had occupancy for 5 or more years.

 

The water main break and sewer main backup into homes on Oak St two years ago was one of the inspirations for this pilot.

2. 59130 Amending Sections 3.12(11) and 33.18(1) of the Madison General Ordinances to make the Community Development Division Conference Committee the final decision-maker for grants awarded under the Emerging Opportunities Program and making related housekeeping changes.

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This ordinance amendment would make the Community Development Division Conference Committee the final body to approve awards under the Emerging Opportunities program.  Currently, the Conference Committee makes recommendations to the Common Council and final awards must be approved through a full Council resolution process.  This amendment also clarifies that individuals and unincorporated groups who are residents of the City are eligible for EOP funds as long as they have a fiscal agent, codifying current practice.  This amendment also changes the number of times per year for soliciting proposals from two to one, but allows for awards at other times of year if funds are available.

 

3. 59188 Community Building and Engagement RFP Overview

The Community Building and Engagement Program was created in 2015 as a means to help residents develop leadership skills, and otherwise support efforts that promise to strengthen relationships among residents build community within Madison neighborhoods and encourage higher levels of participation in civic activities and decision making, particularly among populations that have historically been under-represented in such activities. The City's 2020 Adopted Operating Budget makes two important, and related, changes to the CBE Program that will be reflected in this Request for Proposals (RFP) Process. First, it combines the Program's base funding with revenue streams previously dedicated to community ground works and neighborhood planning councils. And second, it increases the annual funding commitment to the Program from $107,000 to $315,000. Accordingly, though no previously funded organizations are ensured to receive future funding, the scope of activities will expand to cover both leadership development and community building activities. Also, CDD undertakes this RFP process, subject to Council approval and provided that sufficient funds continue to be authorized by the Council in future budgets, willing to commit CBE funds to grantees for use through December 31, 2022.
