Dustin Weis – Public Relations Supervisor Milwaukee City Clerk & Common Council
The election of the next Common Council president will take top billing at the regular meeting (Tuesday, February 11) of the Common Council, and one of the first acts of the new president will be to help honor several members of the Milwaukee Police Department.
The Council will honor six Milwaukee police officers who risked their own safety last week to make sure all residents were evacuated from a burning apartment complex. Police Sergeant Patrick Brousseau, Police Officer Kenneth Daugherty, Police Officer Rufaro Davis, Police Officer Shalamar LeFlore, Police Officer Phillip Lewis and Police Officer Andrew Moutry from District 4 will be recognized for bravery when the Council meets at 9 a.m. in the third floor Council Chamber at City Hall, 200 E. Wells St.
On Tuesday, February 4, 2014, an apartment complex at 7023 W. Silver Spring caught on fire at approximately 9 a.m. The six officers went door to door to check on the residents as they conducted a search of the apartment complex. If there was no answer, they kicked down the door to make sure the unit was cleared. The complex is located adjacent to the District 4 station, 6929 W. Silver Spring Dr.
