I say this a lot: South Milwaukee is full of smart, passionate people who want to make a difference. One way to do it – step up and be considered for a volunteer board or commission.
The city has more than a dozen of these groups providing oversight and guidance to various city departments and functions, and we’re always looking for new people to provide their expertise in any number of areas.
Right now, we have openings on the Police and Fire Commission, Water/Wastewater Commission and Civil Service Commission.
Interested? Get more details and apply here.
Even if these aren’t for you, please consider filling out the application, so we can get your name on file for future board and commission openings.
And I close with a heartfelt thank-you to John Bordak, who is stepping down from the Water/Wastewater Commission, and Kate Bernovich, who is stepping down from the PFC and Civil Service Commission, for their distinguished service.
Both are terrific examples of community members stepping up to lend their passion and expertise to make South Milwaukee better. Thanks for your service!
