Tip of the Week

We're looking for your photos! Send your photos of "essential Bayside".  Help us show the best parts of the Village.

This Week In History

On March 6, 1899, the Imperial Patent Office in Berlin registers Aspirin, the brand name for acetylsalicylic acid, on behalf of the German pharmaceutical company Friedrich Bayer & Co. 

Now the most common drug in household medicine cabinets, acetylsalicylic acid was originally made from a chemical found in the bark of willow trees.

Recycling Info


We're working to recycle more in 2012.  Let's check our totals: 


3/7/12: 9.53

2011 YTD: 103.03

2012 YTD: 105.34

Looking Ahead

Our infrastructure is getting an upgrade.  Sanitary sewer improvements will be completed in all of the Pelham-Heath subdivision, as well as tributary infrastructure.  The Pelham-Heath area was designated as one are for repairs by the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District, based upon flow rates during wet weather periods.  


The project, which was expected to cost nearly $400,000 based upon engineering estimates, was awarded to the low bidder, Visu-Sewer, for $319,346.  Work on the project will provide needed updates to sanitary sewer lines, including:

  • 8'', 12'' & 15'' Pipe lining; 
  • Sanitary Sewer spot repair;
  • 42 manholes rehab/repair;
  • Sanitary sewer joint testing & sealing;
  • Top hat lateral sealing.

Work is expected to commence in May, 2012, with no service interruptions expected.  All homeowners in the affected area will receive a letter of timelines and work after all details are finalized.  For more information, please contact Alex Henderson.

Moving Forward

Bring Your Batteries 

Help prevent ground and water contamination by recycling common household batteries such as AAA, AA, C, D, 9-Volt as well as handheld device rechargeable batteries.  Village residents can stop into Village Hall during regular office hours to recycle their old batteries, free of charge.  

Welcome to Bayside 

The Village has a new look!  New Village entryway signs were placed at entryways throughout the Village.  While one sign will be placed after drier grounds prevail, you can still view signage at the following locations:

  • Port Washington Road/County Line Road;
  • Brown Deer Road (west of Port Washington Road);
  • Port Washington Road (south of Brown Deer Road)
  • Lake Drive (north of Dean Road - not yet placed)

The signs replace the older entry signs, which were over fifteen years old, and required extensive rehabilitation or overall replacement.  Check out the new look today!
