Apply Online for City Boards and Commissions

Residents can apply online to quickly and easily place their names in nomination for appointments to serve on city boards and commissions.

Alderwoman Coggs has been an early and strong voice in the city for increasing and expanding community access and involvement in the boards and commissions appointment process, and she encourages residents to get involved and consider submitting their name for consideration using the new options. “The public deserves a nomination system that is more accessible and transparent, and one that will include potential board and commission candidates from across the entire city,” she said. “Residents who want to become more civically active and involved should take advantage of this new process.”

Safe Sleep for Your Baby

The City of Milwaukee Health Department strongly advises parents NOT to share a bed with their infant. This is based on an American Academy of Pediatrics 2005 Policy Statement that states that the “risk of SIDS has been shown to be reduced when the infant sleeps in the same room as the mother,” but the AAP recommends that infants not share a bed with parents or anyone else, due to proven hazards. Click here to view a video that offers some advice on how to avoid the problems associated with “co-sleeping” with infants.
