Milwaukee, WI – On Monday, the Milwaukee Common Council Licensing Committee approved the communications (rules regulating ID issuing) from the City Clerk’s Office in regards to implementing and begin issuing a citywide municipal identification (ID) card for eligible residents. The Licenses Committee’s approval to place the Municipal rules and regulations on file will now go before the full Common Council meeting for adoption on November 22.
Any resident from the age of 14 accompanied by parent or guardian and older could apply for an ID and pay a fee of $10.00 (a replacement ID would cost $5.00) and good for five years.
Residents would need identity documents (U.S. or foreign passport, Consular ID, Permanent Residency card (Green card), U.S. state or federal ID and a U.S. state license) and must have lived in the city for 15 days to be eligible to get a municipal ID. The ID will be mailed to applicant.
An applicant must notify the City Clerk’s Office within 10 days, if ID is lost or stolen and any change of address.
ID won’t be valid or authorized for voting purposes.
If you are unable to meet the requirements of an ID application, an appeal could be made with the City Clerk’s Office.
