Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs and her Common Council colleagues recently approved the creation of a new Safety and Civic Commission, a panel that will be composed of three members appointed by the Mayor and 15 members appointed by Council members (one per aldermanic district).
The goal of the Safety and Civic Commission will be to improve the quality of life in Milwaukee by improving safety and addressing citywide problems through effective, targeted public education, and public information efforts.
Issues the new Commission will deal with include traffic safety for motor vehicles, pedestrians, and bicycles, reducing the demand for drugs, raising educational achievement, raising school attendance and graduation rates, addressing parenting, and reducing littering.
Nominations are now being accepted and interested citizens may submit their name for consideration.
If you are interested in serving on the Safety and Civic Commission, please submit your name, address, phone, email, and resume (if available) to:
Alderwoman Coggs at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs, 200 E Wells St, Room 205, Milwaukee, WI 53202.
Nominations are due by Friday, June 23, 2017.
Accepted candidates will be confirmed by the Public Safety & Health Committee.
