Neighborhood Watch Program

The Police Department will be holding a Community Watch informational meeting on April 6, at Village Hall.  All residents are encourage and invited to participate.  If you are interested in becoming a part of the Neighborhood Watch Program, or would like more information, please contact Officer Ryan Bowe.

Stormwater Management

With the recent warm weather and rain, large amounts of water are flowing through Bayside.  The Village would like to remind residents to make sure their culvert and ditch areas remain free of debris.  Leaves, twigs, and other items can impede the flow of stormwater, causing flooding.   

Yard Waste Collection Begins April 4

We are quickly approaching the beginning of Yard Waste Collection.  Village crews will begin collecting yard waste on April 4.  Each home will be collected approximatley 15 times throughout the year, weather dependent.  To view the complete schedule and color coded map, visit the Village's website. 


Absentee Ballots Available

The deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail is March 31.  The application for an absentee ballot and sample ballots for both Milwaukee and Ozaukee Counties are available on the Village's website.   


Not registered to vote?  You may register to vote at Village Hall, Monday - Friday, 8 am - 4:30 pm.  When registering to vote please remember to bring a proof of residency.  A list of acceptable proofs of residency and the registration application are available on the Village's website.  

What Are You Doing On April 16?

Participate in the Village's Spring Clean-Up Day! This year we are asking all residents to donate 3 non-perishable food items or a monetary donation to Hunger Task Force in order to participate.


We can't provide these great services without your help!  The Village is looking for volunteers to help at this event. Give an hour, two or six, anything will help.   If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Village Hall.  We look forward to seeing you all on April 16.  


Bicycle Safety

With warm weather on the horizon, the Village would like to encourage bicyclists to remain considerate and courteous when riding on Village streets.  Please do not ride in packs, as it poses a safety hazard to both bicyclists and passing vehicles.  Also, be mindful of your noise level when riding on Village streets, your neighbors will appreciate it! For more information on how to stay safe this biking season, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.
