Get a daily rundown of the top stories on Urban Milwaukee

Every day, decisions are being made about your community. From the trash pick-up on your block, to the operating hours of your corner pub, and even the fare increases for your downtown bus ride; a sophisticated and detailed process of government is in place to represent your interests.

But, do you feel included in the discussion? When’s the last time you felt invested in a conversation about stop lights, lakefront parking, street salting, public school reform, local holidays, public parks, business districts, sales taxes, or job creation? Perhaps these aren’t the most riveting topics to you— but what if they could be?

Join FUEL Milwaukee for Government 101, an interactive presentation and discussion about Milwaukee’s legislative structure. First, an expert presenter will explain the structure of local government, identify the decision makers and tell you how to get involved. Next, you’ll engage in informative round table discussions with local government experts, community leaders, and fellow members of the FUEL network.

This event will help empower you to take your seat at the table. And, as always, you’ll meet dozens of interesting people and reconnect with old friends. This is Milwaukee—and you’re a part of it.
