Ethics board decides to investigate Hatzenbuhler


According to Ethics Board Chairman Peter Califano, the Ethics Board met this past Thursday to review a complaint received by a local resident about work done to the front porch of 4th Ward Alderwoman Diane Hatzenbuhler’s home. The complaint alleges that Hatzenbuhler “rebuilt an entire front porch” without obtaining the proper permit and at one point in time posted an expired permit from 2011. According to Califano, the board decided to investigate further and will be holding meetings for “the next couple weeks” on Tuesdays at 5:30pm at City Hall’s annex building. Califano said that if the board determines there is an ethics violation, they will issue an advisory opinion to the Common Council.
