The Safety and Civic Commission, a key city body charged with recommending citywide measures to improve overall safety and wellbeing, will hold its first meeting tonight at City Hall.

The Commission will meet at 6 p.m. tonight (Monday, November 13) in room 301-B at City Hall, 200 E. Wells St., according to Alderman Terry L. Witkowski, who authored the successful legislation approved in April by the full Common Council to re-create the former Safety Commission as the Safety and Civic Commission, a panel composed of three members appointed by the Mayor and 15 members appointed by Council members (one per aldermanic district).

Alderman Witkowski said tonight’s inaugural meeting of the Commission will include discussion of bylaws and an open records presentation by City Clerk Jim Owczarski. “Tonight’s first meeting will include important information and some on-boarding, but will especially offer a chance for members to become better acquainted with one another,” he said.

Alderman Witkowski said the goal of the Safety and Civic Commission will be to improve the quality of life in Milwaukee by improving safety and addressing citywide problems through effective, targeted public education and public information.
