Milwaukee County Mortgage Assistance Program

Milwaukee County Mortgage Assistance Program

The purpose of the Milwaukee County Mortgage Assistance Program is to aid in foreclosure prevention by providing emergency assistance in the form of a grant on behalf of Milwaukee County homeowners who are delinquent in their mortgage payments due to job loss or reduced work hours and wages as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Housing Resources, Inc. is accepting applications now through December 18, 2020. 

Private Property Infiltration/Inflow Reduction Program

The City of Franklin is a full-service community, providing public sewer, water, and stormwater conveyance systems to its residents.  To make sure we continue to provide the level of urban services, the City monitors its systems on a regular basis to address potential issues before they become problems in an effort to save money, time, and resources.  To that end, the City is working with MMSD on a Private Property Infiltration and Inflow (PPII) Reduction Program. This program involves inspection of private property to better understand factors that contribute to sewer backups in the City and are provided as a service by the City at no direct cost to the property owner.  See PPII Reduction Program for more details and how to participate in the program.

The historical buildings are located in Lions Legend Park right across the street from the back parking lot of Franklin City Hall.  Please join the Historical Society for this free family event.
