Earn & Learn internship applications due April 4

Online applications are now being accepted for the city’s 2014 Earn & Learn Summer Youth Internship Program. Applicants who are selected for a city government internship will work 20 hours a week for eight weeks (beginning June 20, 2014), and will earn $7.50 per hour.

To qualify for a city internship, applicants must be between the ages of 16 and 19 and live within the Community Development Block Grant area. Individuals who have previously held a city government internship position are not eligible to be hired a second time.

Earn & Learn is the City of Milwaukee’s program to help young people make a successful transition from adolescence to adulthood by providing opportunities to develop work-readiness skills while they earn wages working in government, community- and faith-based organizations and private sector businesses.

Applications will also be accepted in early Spring for job slots administered by the Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board. MAWIB accepts paper applications from youth ages 14 through 21 who live anywhere within the city limits.

To learn more about each program or apply for an internship, visit city.milwaukee.gov/SYIP and fill out an application by April 4, 2014.


Redistricting Brings 2nd District Changes

According to Alderman Davis, the redistricting process completed last year by the Common Council has brought new 2012 voting wards, polling locations, and district boundaries for aldermanic districts, including the 2nd District.

Effective since April 2012:
• The area bounded by Appleton Ave., 107th St., Daphne St., the Little Menomonee River and 91st St. is now part of the 2nd District.
• Also added to the district is the area bounded by W. Silver Spring Dr., N. 55th St., W. Custer Ave. and N. 64th St. The southeastern border of the 2nd District now follows W. Fond du Lac Ave and W. Capitol Dr., with the areas east and south of these streets now in the 7th aldermanic district.
• All voting wards within the district have been renumbered, and several have had their boundaries altered.

Alderman Davis Honors MPD Hero

Prior to to the July 7, 2009 regular meeting of the Common Council at City Hall, Alderman Davis presented a Common Council commendation to Sgt. William Walsh (District Four day shift) for his brave actions taken June 21, 2009 which led to the arrests of three suspects in a gun incident.

On June 21 Sgt. Walsh was at home playing a video game with his daughter when he heard gunfire on the street outside. He looked out his window and saw three men, and one of the men was firing a handgun into the air.

Still wearing his flip-flops, Sgt. Walsh grabbed his police identification badge, walked outside and started pursuing the three suspects from a distance. A citizen let Sgt. Walsh borrow his cell phone to call for officers to respond to assist. The three men didn’t notice the sergeant until they approached Lancaster School, 4931 N. 68th St., where children were playing basketball on the playground.

Sgt. Walsh positioned himself to keep others out of danger and called out to the suspects and identified himself as a police officer. With the assistance provided by Sgt. Walsh, other police officers responded and arrested the three men without anyone getting hurt, and all three suspects were expected to be charged with recklessly endangering safety.

Alderman Davis said: "Sergeant Walsh knows what duty truly is, and he knows that police officers are never off duty when it comes to protecting their fellow citizens, their neighborhood, and their city. His courage and his sense of duty are to be recognized and commended, and on behalf of the citizens of our great city, I recognize and thank you."
