Website Page of the Week

As you may know, the Village recently launched a new, user-friendly website.  Each week, the Village will pick one page a week to feature in the Buzz to help residents locate information and become comfortable using the new website. This weeks feature page is the Yard Waste Collection page.  You can access the Yard Waste Collection page by clicking the green 'Collections' button on the left hand side of the homepage.  The Yard Waste page contains helpful information such as the collection calendar, collection guidelines, and a list of acceptable and unacceptable items.  Check out the new website today.  Can't find what your looking for?  Simply Live Chat with Village Staff and we will help you locate what you are looking for.

Yard Waste Collection Resumes Next Week
Village crews will resume yard waste collection next week.  Please have your yard waste out to the side of the road no later than 7 am on your scheduled collection date.  To find your collection date, visit the Village's website.  If possible, please bag your yard waste in biodegradable bags to increase the efficiency of collection.  Can't wait for your scheduled collection date? Residents can drop their yard waste off at the drop-off site located just north of Village Hall off of Fairy Chasm Road.
Report A Concern iPhone App

Do you have an iPhone, an iPod touch, or an iPad? Do you notice property maintenance violations, or missing signage around the Village?  If you answered yes to these questions, we have the perfect solution for you.  The Village's Report A Concern application is now available as an iPhone app.  Visit iTunes and search for Citizen Request Tracker.  Once you download the free application, set your location to Bayside and you are ready to send the Village notifications.

Property Maintenance in Full Swing

The warm weather is here, and that means that the Village's property maintenance program is in full swing.  The most frequent complaints the Village receives are;

  • Unkempt lawns
  • Unenclosed storage (trailers, toys, etc)
  • Fences in disrepair
  • Dead trees

Village staff works diligently to make sure all violations are quickly addressed, however we are unable to visit each property consistently.  If you notice an issue in your neighborhood, please use the Report a Concern application on the Village's website. A property maintenance handbook is available on the Village's website to help homeowners understand and adhere to the program.  For more information, visit the Village's website.

The Designs Are In...

And they look great.  The Village received 125 entries into the Emotionally Intelligent Traffic Sign Design Contest.  The Village, with the help of the local schools, will display the signs and solicit resident input on which signs to select.  Next week, the signs will be on display at each of the local schools so that the children can give their input.  A detailed schedule of the selection process will be available soon.  Pictures of the signs are available on the Village's Facebook Page. Thank you to everyone that submitted entries!  

In Full Bloom

This week Village crews and volunteers planted the new planting beds at the Village entryway signs.  Thank you to the GreenScape Committee for their work on the project.  An addition to the entryway plantings, crews planted nearly 60 trees around the Village, and on resident properties.  The new trees were planted along the Port Washington Road off ramp, Ellsworth Park, Brown Deer Road, Lake Drive, and at Village Hall.  The new trees will help diversify the Village's tree population and are in accordance with the Village's policy of maintaining no more than 12% of one tree species.
