Police Department Cable Show Information
How do you handle a major blizzard and rescue stranded motorists?
In New Berlin, police officers paired up with city snowplow drivers. The trucks stopped when they came across stranded vehicles, Capt. John La Tour said Wednesday.
Being a taxpaying School District of New Berlin resident, I am interested in the District’s practices regarding financial matters/how District funds are spent.
I sent an email to School District of New Berlin Superintendent Paul Kreutzer and Finance Director Roger Dickson requesting to inspect three records:
- projected 2010-11 cash flow summary utilized for borrowing
- agreement between the District and Booster Club pertaining to concession stand
- BOE meeting minutes of the NB School Board approving the hiring of PMA for the December 2009 financing of boilers.
New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government was formed in March 2002 and is a non-profit Association.
NBCRG's mission is to inform the public about significant issues and to recommend public action when deemed necessary. We believe government officials and their employees should be accountable for their actions or lack of actions.
Last Sunday, the Super Bowl drew a tremendous amount of attention in our state and nationally. The Journal Sentinel reports that the telecast set a TV record. In today's newspaper, columnist Duane Dudek says “Sunday’s game had the largest audience of all time, an estimated 111 million people."
Sunday (Feb. 6) was also the 100th anniversary of the birth of President Ronald Reagan.
Article 2, Section 1 of our Constitution says that "No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President."
We wish to remind Citizens of New Berlin of the next Tuesday, February 15 State Supreme Court primary election.
All polling locations throughout the City for the primary will be at the New Berlin City Hall, 3805 S. Casper Drive. Voting hours will remain the same: 7:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court is composed of seven justices, elected to 10-year terms in statewide, non-partisan April elections.
In Tuesday’s (Feb 15) Primary Election, four candidates will vie for a seat on the state Supreme Court.
West Allis Central's wrestling team fell short of the WIAA Division 1 state meet, competing against Arrowhead in Tuesday night's team sectional at AHS.
Brian Smith (152 pounds) and Eric Vis (160) pulled the Bullodgs within 27-14 with consecutive victories, but the Warhawks clinched a victory when Nick Truog (171) inadvertantly touched his shoulder blades to the mat trying to cradle Arrowhead sophomore Logan Corlett.
A special Plan Committee meeting is planned Thursday, February 17 at 4:00 P.M. at City Hall. They will discuss the City Center Planned Unit Development Revision and 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendments to Chapter 10 (Land Use), and Chapter 15 (Neighborhood E-National Avenue East Corridor).
If you've been following news reports on TV or newspapers, you know thousands and thousands of people have protested Gov. Walker's proposal.
Of course, the Internet is a convenient source of information and opinion, too.
Crowds jamming the streets and in our state Capitol Building protesting the fact that collective bargaining may be taken from them and they may have to pay into their health care and retirement benefits seems odd. All this protesting is being done during the workday. If they can afford to be docked for not working how much less would it be to “pay” their fair share. The thugs that run these unions care little for their membership, and very little if “we” as a state can afford the path toward financial destruction.
We’ve had several private sector companies who were asked, and gave concessions in order to save jobs. What these members pay for health care and retirement is far and above what the “civil” servants were being asked to pay.
New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government (NBCRG) has now created a blog to carry out its mission to inform the Citizens of New Berlin about important and often controversial issues in the City and to solicit comments and opinions from the public.
We also want to inform about the good things in New Berlin (there are good things). As an example of the latter we bring to your attention the efficiency and competency of the New Berlin Fire and New Berlin Police Departments in a recent occurrence. On Thursday, February 10 a fire in a garage in the 12800 block of Beloit Road was reported in a 911 call. The garage was attached to a eight-unit apartment building. New Berlin Engine No. 4 arrived within five minutes and with the support of Hales Corners and Greenfield firefighters quickly controlled the fire limiting damage to two of the eight units.
If I"m not badly mistaken aren't the New Berlin Schools open? Haven't they been open all during this invasion by the imported thugs in Madison? I haven't heard that the local schools are closed so I will continue on that premise.
There are so many shortcomings that we usually notice concerning our schools that it seems odd that nothing has been said about our schools being open. From another perspective I guess that would be normal as we generallly don't notice when things are going right.
There is meeting scheduled Thursday, February 24, 2011, 5:00-7:00 P.M. at New Berlin City Hall in the Common Council Chambers.
This will be an open house to allow the community and others interested, an opportunity to view and comment on the City Center Planned Unit Development Revisions and 2020 Comprehensive Plan amendments to Chapter 10, Land Use and Chapter 15 -- Neighborhood E -- National Avenue East Corridor.

“ Forget voter ID. Scott Walker needs better caller ID. It's astounding that some blogger pretending to be rich Republican backer David Koch called up our governor, utterly fooled him and got a 20-minute unguarded assessment of the war on public unions in Wisconsin. The gov got punk'd.”---- writes colunmist Jim Stingl (today's Journal Sentinel)
