Milwaukee, WI – On Tuesday, Jim Cooney, License Specialist III from the City of Milwaukee License Division confirmed that City municipal IDs will become available for residents in January. According to Cooney, the City’s License Division will start issuing the citywide municipal IDs to local residents in 2017.
Eligible residents applying for a municipal identification (ID) card can be any resident from the age of 14 accompanied by parent or guardian and older. Residents will pay a fee of $10.00 to get an ID (a replacement ID would cost $5.00) and will be 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.
