The Legislative Reference Bureau, a research arm of the Common Council-City Clerk's Office, is dedicated to providing nonpartisan, factual information on governmental issues. It primarily serves members of the Common Council, the Mayor and city departments as well as offers services to the public.
The Bureau's roots trace back to February 3, 1908, when the Council adopted an ordinance created a Municipal Reference Library as part of the Milwaukee Public Library. On June 30, 1970, the Council created the Legislative Reference Bureau as an adjunct of the Office of the City Clerk.
