Starting a Business?

There’s a new online tool to assist you. StartSmart can help guide you to the City and State permits that you need. Initially, StartSmart focuses on the new business types opened most frequently. In the coming months, more business types will be added. Small businesses are important to Milwaukee’s economy, and StartSmart is one way to support entrepreneurs launching new enterprises.

Keeping our Water Safe

Report of the Water Quality Task Force

The City of Milwaukee Water Quality Task Force held regular meetings beginning in September 2016, investigating ways to remediate leaded drinking water lateral service lines and lead coming from various sources of internal plumbing. On April 28th the Task Force approved a final Report and Recommendations document on steps and methods to ensure the long-term health and safety of Milwaukee's drinking water, and that document is set for final Common Council review this month.
