On June 23, 2016, the Wisconsin Supreme Court determined that Wis. Stat. § 66.0502 precludes the City from enforcing its residency requirement. Common Council File #160453 recommended for approval  by the Finance and Personnel Committee on July 20, 2016, is a charter ordinance relating to residency requirements for certain City of Milwaukee employees.

Consistent with Wis. Stat. § 66.0502 (4)(b) this charter ordinance enacts legislation imposing a residency requirement on law enforcement, fire, and emergency personnel to reside within 15 miles of the jurisdictional boundaries of the City. The changes to the charter ordinance also include allowing the City Service Commission and the Fire and Police Commission to continue to administer, interpret, and enforce the provisions of this new residency requirement, including reviewing requests for extensions from new or prospective employees to establish residency within 15 miles of the boundaries and reviewing requests for temporary hardship exceptions. The Commissions are also authorized under the proposed language to identify emergency personnel for purposes of this requirement.

This file will be considered by the Common Council at the July 26, 2016 meeting. If approved, the City Service Commission and the Fire and Police Commission will review and modify its rules as necessary. Information regarding the timeline for such rule changes will be shared as soon as it is available.

Recommendations from the City’s Department of Employee Relations regarding a wage differential have not been finalized and changes are not anticipated until after the Common Council’s August recess.
