The proposed resolution authorizes the Mayor, Police Chief and the City Clerk to sign an intergovernmental agreement with the City of Milwaukee (Milwaukee) to provide law enforcement services during the 2020 Democratic National Convention for a 10 day period in July, 2020. Per the terms of the agreement, Milwaukee will reimburse the City for equipment and salary and benefit costs of all Madison Police Department (MPD) officers providing law enforcement services and will provide lodging, transportation and meals for MPD staff.
