Sharing Perspectives: Joint School Board, City Council Meeting Set For Wednesday

As mayor, I want to work closely to build on our already strong partnership with the South Milwaukee School District.

That’s why I’m glad to report that the South Milwaukee School Board and City Council are holding a joint meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, at the district office.

The meeting actually begins with the district’s annual budget meeting, where they set their tax levy. (I’m looking forward to seeing what one of these meetings looks like.) Then we’ll meet together to talk about our budgets, construction and development updates and potential areas of collaboration.

Here is the formal agenda. I hope you can attend.

It only makes sense for our two governmental bodies to work together where we can. We are already doing that, and this is another example of that commitment.

(And a special thanks to Superintendent Rita Olson and School Board President Patricia Bordak for their work in organizing this. They brought forward the idea, and I’m happy we can make it happen.)
