New rules will go into effect at Madison’s City County Building on the first of the year aimed at making it safer.

Monday night, the City Council liaison committee passed a new behavior policy modeled after the Madison Public Library’s rules.

The policy will allow staff at the CCB to ban people because of their behavior.

News 3 reported in October about issues of profanity, drugs, fights and even urinating in elevators.

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin had pushed for security for the building, but the Dane County Executive didn’t want to crack down on people who were not causing issues.

The CCB is often a place homeless people congregate to keep warm.
