Huebsch email lays out street closings downtown, precautions for Obama visit Monday

DOA Secretary Mike Huebsch sent state employees an email this afternoon giving them a head's up on various street closings planned Monday for President Obama's Madison rally and warning those in downtown office buildings to keep their blinds closed and to stay away from the windows during the event.

"SAFETY:  all blinds must be closed and staff must stay away from windows on Monday.  Security will be watching the area closely and you must follow this safety precaution to avoid any safety risk to you and your colleagues," Huebsch noted for employees in the DOA and DHS buildings, the state Capitol, and the Risser Justice Center & Law Library.  

According to the email, security will increase beginning Sunday in the area around the rally site on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, which runs south of the Capitol.

Streets around the area will be closed beginning 11 a.m. Sunday through Monday afternoon, and Huebsch wrote law enforcement asked that all state workers wear their state IDs until the conclusion of the president's visit.

"Employees who wish to attend should ensure this is done on their own time and that they have obtained supervisory approval," Huebsch wrote.   "Thank you for your patience.  We realize this poses some challenges with the short notice, but we appreciate your understanding."
