Mayor Mike Wiza has been appointed to the board of directors of the League of Wisconsin Municipalities.
The League is comprised of more than 600 members—large and small cities and villages representing both urban and rural Wisconsin.
Wiza said he was “honored” by the appointment.
“The League provides invaluable resources to communities throughout Wisconsin and I’ve been privileged to work with them and my peers to navigate through the waters of local government,” he said.
The League of Wisconsin Municipalities was created in 1898 to help Wisconsin cities and villages share ideas and learn from one another, to train and provide information to the people elected and appointed to govern those cities and villages and to advocate on their behalf with the Wisconsin Legislature, Governor and state agencies.
According to a news release from the organization, the League plans to set a strategic direction during 2021-22 to deal with pandemic-related challenges, aging infrastructure, and address updates to public services.
Wiza is midway through his second term in office.
