Landlord registration program could be eliminated
Statement from Alderman Nik Kovac June 20, 2013
A bill (AB 183/SB179) now moving through the state Legislature would eliminate the City of Milwaukee’s landlord registration program – a highly successful program that has helped to resolve problems and hold landlords accountable when they have problem tenants or are negligent in maintaining a property. The bill has already passed the Assembly, has had a hearing in the Senate, and could be voted out of the Senate committee any day now.
I urge all concerned residents, as well as neighborhood associations and other stakeholders, to contact the members of the Senate Insurance and Housing Committee to ask them to support amending the bill to allow the city to maintain the landlord registration program. Please let them know how important the program is to the city and your neighborhood.
The committee members are:
Senator Frank Lasee (Chair) 608-266-3512
Senator Luther Olsen 608-266-0751
Senator Dale Schultz 608-266-0703
Senator Tim Cullen 608-266-2253
Senator Jon Erpenbach 608-266-6670

Five small and medium sized arts and culture museums, located on Milwaukee’s historic East Side and in close proximity to one another along the Lake Michigan shoreline, have created the Milwaukee Museum Mile. This joint effort among the Jewish Museum Milwaukee, The Charles Allis Art Museum, Museum of Wisconsin Art at St. John’s On The Lake, The Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum, and the North Point Lighthouse at Lake Park, creates a simple and more affordable way for visitors to access and enjoy multiple museum experiences, while promoting the area as a destination to Milwaukee residents and visitors to our city.
