Be The Change

Launched in 2011 by Alderman Ashanti Hamilton, in partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools and Potawatomi Bingo Casino, the Be the Change program is a new youth initiative designed to provide wrap-around mentoring, leadership and literacy support for targeted Milwaukee youth. Be the Change engages young men transitioning from eighth to ninth grade, and is designed to improve academic outcomes through explorations of culturally relevant literature and daily writing practice during the summer months. The academic enrichment portion of the program is complemented by community partner-led components in leadership and reaching one’s full potential. 

Flooding Study Task Force Report & Recommendations

The report and recommendations of the Flooding Study Task Force, co-chaired by Alderman Ashanti Hamilton, were approved by the Common Council’s Public Works Committee in July 2011.

View the task force’s report and recommendations: File #100666  |  Report  |  Report-Appendices

The task force was created after last summer’s devastating flooding and basement backups resulted in millions of dollars in property damage and eventual disaster assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The task force was charged with recommending remedies for storm water and sewage backup flooding of city residential and commercial properties, and flooding of streets and alleyways.

Have you experienced a basement backup?

If you experienced a basement backup as a result of the exceptionally heavy rain in the area, we want to hear about it. Your input is valuable in determining where backups occurred and how to possibly prevent future problems of this nature. Call 286-CITY (2489) to report your problem 24/7.
