Alderman Urges Sex Offender Notification Changes
GREEN BAY-- A Green Bay alderman is requesting the city's Sex Offender Residency Board make changes to how it notifies the public when a sex offender is moving into the city. Alderman Jerry Wiezbiskie is asking the board to adopt a new methods to inform people in the areas where sex offenders are asking to relocate to the city.
The Sex Offender Residency Board is made up of 5 people who decide if a convicted sex offender is allowed to live in Green Bay on a case by case basis. The board is not required to adopt any changes to how it notifies the public about sex offender's requests to move to Green Bay.
The request for changes comes after people in the McAuliffe Park neighborhood circled a petition protesting a recent Sex Offender Residency Board decision to allow a sex offender to move in with his parents once he released from prison.
Board members are expected to hear from Ald. Wiezbiskie's about his proposal at the board's meeting Wednesday afternoon.
NBC26's Brian Miller will be at the meeting and we'll have more on his story tonight.
