Reminder: July 1 Minimum Wage Increases

Topic bulletin header
Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Minimum wage increases July 1 in Minneapolis

On July 1, 2019, the minimum wage in Minneapolis is going up to $11 for small employers and $12.25 for large employers.

The Minneapolis minimum wage ordinance defines small businesses as 100 or fewer employees and large businesses as more than 100 employees. Tips and gratuities do not count toward payment of a minimum wage.

The City’s Department of Civil Rights oversees enforcement of the municipal minimum wage, and workers are encouraged to report violations online. The City has received 28 reports of minimum wage violations to date. Employees have received over $21,000 in back wages and penalties as a result of investigations into those violations.

Increases in Minneapolis’ minimum wage invest in the workforce while supporting the City’s goals of promoting economic inclusion and reducing economic and racial disparities.

For more information about the ordinance, visit minwage.

Greetings Ward 6,

I hope you’re having a great start to your summer. I know public safety is a concern for many as we move through the warmer months of the year. Our office is dedicated to our community’s safety. In recent weeks, we have received many emails about drug use along the Hiawatha bike trail. We have been working with MPD and St. Stephen’s Human Services to address these issues. St. Stephen’s is on the front lines of this issue, offering drug abuse help and housing options. During the budget process this fall, I plan to focus once again on long term public safety solutions. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.

Highway 77, I-494 bridge maintenance
Crews will be doing preventative maintenance on bridges on Highway 77 and I-494 near the Mall of America June 4-14. The ramps to the bridges will be closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly. It is difficult to know what nights the bridges will be closed because it’s based on the contractor’s availability. They will not be closed at the same time. Motorists will want to check www.511mn.org and watch the closure signs on the highway. Access to Highway 77 north will be maintained at Killebrew Drive and access to southbound Highway 77 will be maintained at Lindau Lane. Each ramp will be closed one night and then reopened and the closed again two or three days later.

Here are the affected ramps:
· Ramp from Highway 77 south to Lindau Lane
· Ramp from Lindau Lane to Highway 77 north
· Ramp from I-494 east to Lindau Lane
· Ramp from Killebrew Drive to Highway 77 south.
· New: Ramp from collector lane to Highway 77 north
· New: Ramp from collector lane to I-494 west.

Please let me know if you have questions.
