Budget includes money for key lead water lateral marketing campaign
Statement of Alderwoman Chantia Lewis - November 10, 2017
Today my Common Council colleagues and I approved an adopted 2018 city budget addressing a wide range of health, safety, protective services and infrastructure needs. One of the items included in the adopted budget will provide $20,000 for the Milwaukee Health Department’s Lead Water Service Lateral Information Marketing Campaign. A request for proposals to help create the education portion of the campaign will be directed to City of Milwaukee residents and business owners.
I was proud to be a sponsor for this important budget piece because of the sheer (huge) volume of Milwaukee residents and families who are affected by lead water service laterals. These families and individuals will need to be targeted in a continuing public information and marketing effort to educate and inform them about precautions and appropriate measures to help reduce and avoid exposure to lead in water.
I thank my colleagues for their support of this important funding.
