Thought for the Week 

"To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle any human being can fight; and never stop fighting"


-E.E. Cummings

Yard Waste Collection Continues
Next week, Village crews will continue with yard waste collection. Please have your yard waste out to your curb by 7 am on your scheduled collection day to ensure proper collection.

Top 5 Reasons to join the Neighborhood Watch

On May 24, the Police Department will be hosting an organizational meeting for the Bayside Neighborhood Watch Program.  The Village would like to encourage all residents to participate.  Here are a few great reasons for everybody to participate:

  1. Help deter crime in your neighborhood;
    • By having members keep an open eye on the activities happening in their neighborhood, collectively the Neighborhood Watch Program can work to deter and reduce crime in the Village.
  2. Improved communications and partnerships between residents and the Police Department;
    • Members of the community watch will have the opportunity to have open, honest, and friendly communication with the Police Department. Residents will be able to aid and assist Officers in identifying potential risk areas.
  3. More secure and prepared neighborhood;
    • Feel more secure in your home, and more prepared to deal with instances of crime.
  4. Get to know your neighbors and Police Officers;
    • Regular meetings will be held to proactively address issues that may arise.  Joining the Neighborhood Watch Program will also give you an opportunity to meet and interact with your neighbors.
  5. It's Fun!
    • Taking an active role in your community is a great way to have fun! 

If you would like more information on the Neighborhood Watch Program, please contact Officer Ryan Bowe.

Be Visible, Be Safe
Please take a few moments to make sure that your home or business address is clearly visible from the roadway.  Put yourself in the place of emergency response personnel, safely step out onto the curb in front of your home or business.  Is your address marker clearly visible?  If not, it may affect the time it takes emergency personnel to locate your home or business in the event of an emergency.  Time is a critical factor when responding to an emergency situation.  The more clearly crews are able to identify your home or business address, the more quickly they will be able to arrive at your location and administer live-saving procedures.
