Downtown, south side Local Business Action Team public sessions on tap
The public forum on Friday, March 13 will be at 9 a.m. in room 301-B at City Hall, 200 E. Wells St.
The City of Milwaukee’s newly created Local Business Action Team (LBAT) will solicit feedback and ideas about how to make Milwaukee a friendlier place for businesses during a public forum Friday at City Hall, and again on Monday on the city’s south side.
The LBAT is hosting public forums to solicit input from local businesses and Business Improvement District (BID) members/stakeholders. The public forum on Friday, March 13 will be at 9 a.m. in room 301-B at City Hall, 200 E. Wells St.
On Monday, March 16, the LBAT forum will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Robert A. Anderson Tower (third floor), 4001 S. 6th St.
In 2014 the Common Council created the Local Business Action Team, including department heads from Health, City Development, Neighborhood Services, Licenses, Public Works and Information Technology. Each of these city departments may be involved in permits, licenses, inspections and approvals before a business can open.
Business owners and others who would like to provide input and feedback to the LBAT – but who cannot make any of the upcoming forums – are asked to share their information with the team by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org (all information will be kept confidential, however respondents are also welcome to ask that their name and/or contact information be shared with the team).
Please go to www.milwaukee.gov/LBAT for more information and updates.
