D6 Items of Interest Week of October 5, 2020

October 4, 2020 10:29 PM

City meeting highlights: Several police accountability ordinances have made it back to Tuesday's Council meeting including appointments to the Civilian Oversight Board (#16) and ordinances related to prohibiting tear gas, mace and impact projectile devices and procedures for accepting military property from the Defense Logistics Agency's 1033 program (#63-65). At Wednesday's Urban Design Commission is the amendment to the East Washington Avenue Capitol Gateway Corridor Plan to revise the land use recommendation for the block bounded by East Washington Avenue, South Brearly Street, East Main Street, and South Paterson Street from "Employment" to "Employment/Residential" and a review of the proposed mixed use project on the 900 block of E Main St. Also Wednesday at Board of Public Works, Approving Plans, Specifications, And Schedule Of Assessments For Dunning Street, Jackson Street, and LaFollette Ave Reconstruction Assessment District. On Thursday, the Council convenes into a Committee of the Whole to discuss the Ad Hoc Task Force on the TFOGS Final Report Implementation Work Group Recommendations and Reorganizing the Structure of the Common Council. As I stated in my September 28 Update last week, along with discussions about the budget, COVID impacts, police accountability and public safety resource allocation, this is one of the most consequential discussions the Council will be having in the current period. If the Council agrees with the TFOGS committee recommendation to reduce the size of the Council from 20 to 10 members and increase the length of the terms from 2 to 4 years, it must be done via a charter ordinance and a referendum must be approved by a majority of the electors voting to change the structure. If this proposal moves forward, the referendum would be held next Spring. I am interested in your feedback and thanks to those who already weighed in.  Final Report of the Task Force on the Structure of City Government The link is not live for the meeting yet, but I hope you will check the Clerks Weekly calendar later this week or follow news reports.

 

The new rules governing tourist rental housing (AKA airbnbs, etc) went into effect October 1. As of this past spring, a City Zoning Tourist Rooming House Permit (ZTRHP) is required in addition to the Public Health TRH license. The implementation date was pushed out to allow time to acquire that permit. As of 10/1/20, all TRH operators are required to have obtained a valid Zoning Tourist Rooming House Permit (ZTRHP) and that permit number must be displayed in all advertisements. Operators must first possess a Public Health TRH license before applying for the ZTRHP permit. The TRH must be the primary residence of all hosts and cohosts listed in any ad postings. All hosts and cohosts must each submit a separate residence affidavit. Call 608-266-4551 or email ZoningTRH@cityofmadison.com if you have additional questions. Tourist Rooming House FAQ

Mayor Satya: Reimagining Public Safety and Operating Budget released October 8  Highlights from the Mayor's statement "..The City is strengthening its response to the surge of violence that we've been experiencing this year as a result of the COVID-related economic turmoil. We are seeing significant increases in shots fired, auto thefts, and burglaries from 2019 to 2020, and we must do all we can to stop these trends. Our residents are rightly concerned about this spike and the police are keeping their focus on responding to and investigating reports of violent incidents in the City.

We continue to support the efforts of the Community Safety Intervention Team, which brings together multiple levels of government (City, County and school district) to work in partnership with community organizations to reduce gun violence in the community. We will build on this effort by partnering with the County on a major new investment creating a Violence Prevention Unit at Public Health Madison Dane County aimed at identifying and addressing root causes of violence. We'll also be expanding contractual support to community organizations focused on violence prevention and interruption in the community. You can read more about these new efforts here in the Wisconsin State Journal .

Finally, we are starting to reimagine public safety and think deliberately about what jobs are best performed by police and what jobs might best be performed differently. You'll see some of these changes in the 2021 Executive Operating Budget I am releasing on Tuesday. It will show up in Public Health, Community Development, Transportation, and in the Police budget. This is a very tough budget year, and nearly every department is facing cuts. The Police Department is no exception. Reduced revenue (due to COVID) compounded with contractual obligation from the previous administration to raise pay in MPD, make our job harder this year. We have asked the police union to come to the table to reconsider their contract, but they have not yet agreed. Nonetheless, we are moving forward."

The 2021 Executive Operating budget will be released on Tuesday.

District 6 Alder

City of Madison

 

You can fill out the census from home. Everyone living in your household should be counted. Census data determines how more than $675 billion in federal funds are distributed to communities across the country for affordable housing, childcare, healthcare, education, transportation, and more.  That's over $2,000 per person for Madison and Dane County every year.  Please remind friends and family to be counted. By law your answers are confidential. Respond online at my2020census.gov, by phone, or by mail--without having to meet a census taker.
