“Free landlord training

in Milwaukee”

(NOT the class by Tristen Petit)

The award winning landlord training program operates out of the Department of Neighborhood Services (DNS) downtown location. The goal is to teach landlords fundamental ways to keep illegal activity out of their property. This program was a runner up for the Ford Foundation Harvard Kennedy School of Government Awards program and a 1996 winner of the Innovations In Government award sponsored by the City of Milwaukee Mayor and Common Council.

The class is FREE and held on a regular basis throughout the year at various locations. It is held on evenings and weekends to accommodate virtually anyone's schedule. The class is generally either (1) five hour session in one day or (2) two and a half hour sessions for two nights. Attendees get a free 100 page comprehensive manual and handouts on a variety of legal and business issues related to managing a property.

Still No Word on Signing of SB 179 There is no final word from the Governor's office on the signing of SB 179. The indication is still that the Governor will sign the bill right after Thanksgiving. I will let you know as soon as we have more information on the bill signing and then more on the published bill. If there is a public signing I will let you know in case you might like to attend.

 Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit Bill Passed The October special session bill that increases the state rehabilitation tax credit was agreed to by the State Senate on November 12th. The bill is now on the Governor's desk waiting for his signature. There's been no indication when he might sign it. The bill would increase the amount of the state rehabilitation tax credit for certified historic structures to 20% of qualified rehabilitation expenditures. The bill also creates a new state rehabilitation tax credit, in the amount of 20% of qualified rehabilitation expenditures, for qualified rehabilitated buildings, if those expenditures exceed $50,000. Additionally, the bill specifies that property is eligible for the new credit regardless of whether the rehabilitated property is used for multiple or revenue-producing purposes.

SB 179 on Governor's Desk There is tentative word from the Governor's office on the signing of SB 179. As I understand it, the Governor's office is at the final stage of soliciting input from relevant agencies on the bill's impact and recommended action by the Governor. This is standard procedure for each bill sent to the Governor. The indication is that the Governor will sign the bill right after Thanksgiving. I will let you know as soon as we have more information on the bill signing and then more on the published bill. If there is a public signing I will let you know in case you might like to attend.
