Title

Substitute resolution terminating the sister city relationship with Morogoro, Tanzania.

 

Analysis

This resolution terminates the existing sister city relationship between the City of Milwaukee and Morogoro, Tanzania, as this relationship no longer meets the guidelines established by Sister Cities International.

Body

Whereas, The Common Council created the Sister Cities Committee to assist in the establishment and maintenance of sister city relationships pursuant to Sister Cities International guidelines, and the committee reviews requests for new relationships, investigates and makes recommendations to the Common Council concerning the establishment of new relationships and maintenance or termination of existing sister city relationships; and

 

Whereas, The Sister Cities Committee has reviewed the current sister city relationship with Morogoro, Tanzania, and recommends that the sister city relationship be terminated due to lack of information on activities, reports, and documentation as required to meet the goals and guidelines set by Sister City International; and

 

Whereas, This relationship is no longer active, does not have local community support that fosters opportunities for reciprocal cultural, educational, municipal, business, professional or humanitarian exchanges and projects, and is recommended for termination by the Sister Cities Committee; now, therefore, be it

 

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that Resolution File Number 070043, adopted on May 7, 2007, is rescinded, thereby terminating the sister city relationship with Morogoro, Tanzania.
