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.

The Process Behind Road Construction

Milwaukee’s Department of Public Works strives to maintain nearly 1,400 miles of city streets, about 4,000 alleys, and approximately 2,500 miles of sidewalk through paving projects and routine maintenance.

There are multiple ways in which a street, alley or sidewalk gets flagged for improvement:

  • Field observation by City employees
  • Aldermanic/Citizen request or complaint (call center data)
  • Road Matrix Pavement Management System Pavement Quality Index (PQI) Ratings (roadways only)
  • Pavement Core Samples (roadways only)

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.
