This Week in History

On August 9, 1936, at the Berlin Olympics, African American track star Jesse Owens wins his fourth gold medal of the Games in the 4x100-meter relay. His relay team set a new world record of 39.8 seconds, which held for 20 years.

Bayside Citizen's Police Academy

The class will be on Tuesdays 6:30pm to 9:30pm from September 25 thru November 6th with a Saturday class on November 3 from 9am to Noon.  The class also includes a 3 hour ride along.  This is the last chance to participate in the Citizen's Police Academy as grant funding is no long available.


Interested people can call 414-351-8800 or email Eric Miller for more information or applications.


Don't Forget To Vote

The fall Partisan Primary election is next Tuesday, August 14.  You can still vote by absentee ballot at Village Hall until 5:00 pm on Friday.  No absentee voting is allowed on Monday. 


The election will be held at Bayside Middle School from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm.  Please use the Standish Place entrance when you come to vote.


Board Passes Revised Do Not Solicit Hours

The Board of Trustees revised the hours in which permitted solicitors can operate in the Village at the August 2nd Board meeting.  This  restricts the hours that permitted solicitors can come to your house.   

  • OLD Transient Merchant Hours:  9:00 am to 9:00 pm
  • NEW Transient Merchant Hours:  9:00 am to 6:30 pm

If you don't want salespersons coming to your house at all, sign up online for the Village's Do-Not-Solicit list.   

Construction Continues

We are in the middle of the Village's road reconstruction project.  Please note that access to each home will be available throughout this entire process.  All pulverization work has been completed on each of the roads that will be repaved.  The binder course work on the east side of the Village should be completed this week, and binder course work should be finished on the rest of the Village next week.        


Overall preparation work of roads across the Village includes:

  • Milling of the pulverized material; 
  • Removal of millings and base; 
  • Grading and rolling of the new road;
  • Proof rolling to test road base stability;
  • Corrections to the road base (if necessary). 
Due to some required work on the base of the roads, the timeline for completion has been extended.  In order to ensure the long term stability of the roads, the base must first be solidified through excavation and stone replacement.  At this time, we anticipate all work on roads being completed by the end of August.  We appreciate homeowner's patience during the process.

Protecting Our Trees

As a property owner you can take steps to reduce the threat and spread of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) by following these simple guidelines.  The EAB was first detected in Wisconsin in 2008 and is a serious threat to the health of our Ash trees.  Here is what you can do: 

  • Keep Ash Trees that are infested with EAB in place - Don't move it off your property.
  • Keep hardwood firewood local and don't move your own from your property. 
  • If you are buying firewood, buy from a local or certified wood dealer near where you will use it.
  • Protect high value Ash trees with products that are labeled for controlling EAB;
  • Replace infested Ash with other tree species.  

Some species may mimic the Emerald Ash Borer.  Contact a certified state arborist for more information.  More information about identifying and managing EAB is available at
