Green Bay board wants residents notified of where sex offender wants to live

by

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A Green Bay mother of three is leading a small army of grassroots supporters in lobbying city leaders to get notifications sent to residents if a sex offender wants move into their area. 

Vicki Marquardt was upset after learning that a child sex offender was approved by the Sex Offender Residency Board to move in next door, and she didn’t know anything about it.

“If we would have been notified, we would have come to the meeting and voiced our opinion before he was approved,” Marquardt said.

The board voted Wednesday to recommend the city look into establishing a proximity notice policy. 

The board will also reconsider the sex offender Marquardt was concerned about, 50-year-old Samuel Brandt.  He is expected to be released later this month and wanted to move into his mother’s home. 

Last year, Alderman Andy Nicolson pushed for a similar proposal that Marquardt is pursuing now, but it failed at the city council because of the added work for the clerk’s office, manpower, and costs.
