District 5 — Lamont Westmoreland


Image of a car being impounded.Exploring Solutions To Make Our Roads Safer

At the beginning of May this year, the Common Council adopted legislation that will allow the City of Milwaukee to impound vehicles involved in reckless driving. Specifically, if an offender is pulled over for driving recklessly a second time (and the first ticket was ignored), the Police Chief will have the power to impound the vehicle, whether it is registered or not.

This ordinance was signed by the Mayor on May 12, 2023 and is a great new tool for us in the battle against reckless driving, and I applaud everyone who worked to make it happen.

Water Quality Task Force Recommendations

The City of Milwaukee Water Quality Task Force has been meeting regularly since September 2016, investigating ways to make sure the city's drinking water is safe from lead in old water line pipes and lateral service lines. A final Report and Recommendations document has been approved, and highlights steps and methods that will ensure the long-term health and safety of Milwaukee's drinking water.  The next step will be for Common Council members to review it and take action on specific areas that may need it.  More news to come as it happens.

Milwaukee youth now have access to more than 200 after school programs and services at their fingertips, thanks to a new app developed by Beyond the Bell Milwaukee. The app is a direct response to a 2013 survey of more than 1,000 Milwaukee youth that found “lack of program awareness” as the number one barrier to after school engagement. Youth, parents and community can download the app on Apple and Android by visiting beyondthebellmke.org.

Beyond the Bell is a coalition of youth-serving agencies, funders, policymakers and youth who work to ensure all young people have access to quality after school and summer opportunities.
