Residency requirement bill moving forward

Print Article

MADISON - A bi-partisan measure that would give 19 cities and villages, including Beloit and Janesville the option to adopt a residency requirement for their city or village managers has been unanimously approved by a Senate Committee.

Senate Bill 335, authored by Senators Janis Ringhand, D-Evansville, and Dan Feyen, R-Fond du Lac, and co-authored by Rep. Mark Spreitzer, D-Beloit, would allow local government who utilize the manager form of government to decide if they wish to establish a residency requirement. In Beloit, City Manager Lori Curtis Luther does live in the city.

The bill would only apply to the hiring of a city manager. It would not apply to a city administrator, police, fire or other government employees. A public hearing on the bill was held by the committee on Aug. 10 with the City of Beloit and the Wisconsin League of Municipalities testifying in favor. The bill is now to go before the State Senate.
