Alderman DeWane wants to see a change.
"We're not concentrating on the right things," says DeWane.
He is not happy with the headlines the council has been making.
"We're worried about whether or not (Oneida) Seven Generations dooped us, whether or not Chief Molitor should be our Chief," he says.
Last week, the council decided to give Police Chief Tom Molitor a waiver on the City's residency rule. The rule required department heads to live in the city, but Molitor lives about 18 miles away. DeWane says he was surprised by the Council's decision.
At Tuesday night's Personnel Committee meeting, the issue came up again. Alderperson Amy Kocha wanted to get rid of the requirment, but her request was denied.
"Clearly we're still divided, and I have no idea what to really predict," says Ald. Kocha.
DeWane says, the Council should be focused on bigger things.
"KI Convention Center should be our top priority right now," he says.
The Council has been meeting in closed session for weeks on the issue.
"There's a lot of little things involved, the infrastructure itself, you have people that have naming rights, whether or not we can get some money form (Gov.) Walker," says DeWane.
The City says they have lobbied heavily for the state to fund 10% of the $22 million project. Planning Director Rob Strong says the expansion would double the size of the building and bring jobs.
"It's actually about an $8 million impact, if you look at the loss of revenue should we not do something," says Strong.
DeWane says he hopes something happens quickly with the expansion and says, despite the issues, the council works well together.
"One in ten, I would say it is a 9, you know, nothing is ever perfect," he says.
The City says they will wait until after Governor Walker releases his budget next week to make any public announcement about funding for the expansion.
