Water coalition files legal notice, wants city records on lead crisis

MILWAUKEE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A group called "Freshwater for Life Action Coalition" has filed a legal notice with the city.

The group wants access to records related to the lead crisis.

Members claim the city has not responded to an open records request quickly enough. That request was filed on February 1.

"I'm hoping that they will provide the records. I can't guarantee it because they have not provided those records before in previous open records requests. So from their past, can't say they will," said Felicia Miller-Watson, Legal Counsel, Freshwater for Life Coalition.

The Assistant City Attorney sent a letter back to the coalition's legal counsel. It says the request has not been denied and "The office of the mayor has been working in good faith to respond." The letter also anticipates a response within the next 5 to 10 working days.
