Role of the Legislative Services Division

The Legislative Services Division (LSD), Office of the County Clerk, assists Milwaukee County departments in preparing matters for introduction and consideration by the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors and following these matters as they progress through the legislative process.  

LSD provides services to the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors, County Executive, county departments, and the general public. 

Additionally, LSD: prints and date stamps all required original documents; maintains all legislative files; reviews all reports, resolutions and ordinances, and fiscal notes as to standard form; publishes standing committee agendas in compliance with Wisconsin open meeting laws; staffs all standing committee and county board meetings and records the Journal of Proceedings (minutes); and updates existing ordinances and publishes new ordinances. 

Another responsibility of the Office of the County Clerk is the maintenance of the County Legislative Information Center, which provides online public access to legislative documents, meeting agendas and minutes, archived video, and online live streaming of standing committee and county board meetings.

Ad Hoc Committees and Task Forces

In addition to 10 standing committees, the Board of Supervisors occasionally establishes ad hoc committees and task forces to facilitate policy development and implementation. Existing ad hoc committees include: Capital Improvements Committee; Lakefront Development Advisory Committee; and Pension Study Commission. Existing task forces include: American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) Task Force and the Milwaukee City-County Joint Taskforce on Climate and Economic Equity.
