City Clerk's Office
As part of its ongoing efforts to improve opportunities for business to thrive in Milwaukee, the Common Council-City Clerk’s Office created the Red Tape Rescue program. Inspired by the Local Business Action Team (“LBAT”), a temporary City of Milwaukee committee, the program’s aim is to fulfill and continue efforts initiated by the LBAT to improve interaction between local business and city government.
In accordance with the goals of the LBAT, we desire to:
Get your new business started off on the right foot! StartSmart can help guide you to the city and state permits that you need.
Want to make sense of regulations and code requirements? Our new Pivot Program brings the experts to you for lively discussions and one-on-one problem-solving.
This instructional video series brings the knowledge and expertise of our staff right to your fingertips.
Want a little more background on this program? Curious as to our progress and numbers? Read the program's inaugural report or check out our 2016 update.
