108 E. Court Street-Closure of Sidewalk and Parking Spaces

Intertec will be performing some drilling at 108 E. Court Street in Richland Center on August 22nd for BMO Harris Bank.  They will be drilling two 2-inch to 4-inch diameter holes through the concrete at the front of the BMO Bank building.  Given the limited access in that area, it’s likely they will need to perform these borings within the north right-of-way of Court Street (within the sidewalk), and will need to limit access to the sidewalk within the work area.  The work will be completed within one day and they will patch the holes with concrete when done.

The SafeWise Report Announces the 50 Safest Cities in Wisconsin

The SafeWise Report released its “50 Safest Cities in Wisconsin” report this week. To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2012 to analyze and rank these cities, which all have a minimum population of 5,000 people.

We look at crimes from part 1 of the FBI Unified Crime Report (UCR) reported crime data, which focuses on violent crimes (aggravated assault, forcible rape, murder, and robbery) as well as property crimes (arson, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft). From there, we calculate the chances of these crimes happening out of a thousand in order to level the playing field for cities of varying populations. From all the cities in Wisconsin, we narrowed the list down to 50 and assigned rankings according to data provided by the FBI’s UCR report.

“In Wisconsin, direct involvement from both the police departments and citizens helps foster safe and positive environments,” SafeWise security analyst Carolyn Heneghan said. “All 50 cities on our list made an impressive effort to maintain a sense of security for residents, while ensuing an excellent quality of life.”
