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.

Alderman Terry L. Witkowski, chair of the LBAT, said the series of forums this month are meant to make it more convenient for business owners with busy and varying schedules. “The City of Milwaukee needs to be helpful and as accommodating as possible to local businesses and business owners to make sure they have a path to success, and we’ve scheduled the LBAT forums on the weekend (last Saturday, March 7), during a weekday morning and one after work on Monday to make them easier to attend,” he said.

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 license@milwaukee.gov (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).
