Madison, WI – Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt was named as one of the League’s Municipal Champions for the 2017-2018 legislative session. He is one of eight Municipal Champions highlighted in the June issue of the league’s monthly magazine.
Rep. Thiesfeldt was the Assembly lead author of Assembly Bill (AB) 78 /Act 137, “Get the Lead Out Act,” allowing municipalities and their water utilities to create financial assistance programs to help homeowners cover the cost of replacing private lead water service lines.
The League also worked closely with Rep. Thiesfeldt and his staff on the introduction of AB 70, enabling cities to publish governing body meeting minutes on the web instead of paying for publication in the newspaper.
“We thank Rep. Thiesfeldt for his work on behalf of municipal government”
– Curt Witynski, J.D. Deputy Executive Director League of Wisconsin Municipalities stated.
