Residents invited to learn about jobs working at new Bucks arena
The meeting will also offer Milwaukee residents the opportunity to be certified for the city’s Resident Preference Program.
In partnership with the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center, Alderman Cavalier Johnson will host a town hall meeting this Thursday, January 26 at 5:30 p.m. for residents who are interested in learning more about family-supporting careers that will be available at the new Milwaukee Bucks arena.
“The construction and opening of this new arena has the capacity to be a truly transformative moment for Milwaukee,” Alderman Johnson said. “But in order to make sure our residents benefit from this opportunity, we are paying special attention to making sure that Milwaukeeans of all backgrounds are involved in the process.”
The meeting will also offer Milwaukee residents the opportunity to be certified for the city’s Resident Preference Program. The RPP provides job opportunities to city residents with construction skills to work on development projects. Contractors bidding on certain public and private projects within the City of Milwaukee must hire a certain percentage of City of Milwaukee residents to work on those projects. To verify one’s eligibility, the City of Milwaukee issues a certification to qualified individuals.
