The Public Safety Committee will hold two public hearings on Wednesday, July 29 on the appointment of Assistant City Attorney MaryNell Regan to be the next executive director of the Fire and Police Commission.

Wednesday’s Public Safety Committee sessions will begin at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., respectively, in the third floor Council Chamber at City Hall, 200 E. Wells St.

The meetings will be televised live on the City Channel (Channel 25 on Time Warner Cable in the City of Milwaukee), and on U-Verse Channel 99. Online viewing is available by going to www.city.milwaukee.gov/Channel25.

Public Safety Committee chair Alderman Terry L. Witkowski said the two hearings will allow the public to select the time that best fits their schedule. “I am hopeful that people who are interested in asking questions about Ms. Regan’s appointment or offering input are able to attend the hearings,” he said.

The FPC executive director position has been vacant since the resignation of Michael Tobin in fall 2014.

Alderman Witkowski said the committee will consider written questions and/or verbal testimony during the hearings, with a set three-minute time limit per person.

The committee is expected to vote on the appointment at the close of the 6 p.m. hearing, and the recommendation it makes is expected to be considered by the full Common Council on September 1.
