This Week In History

On October 10, 1957, the Milwaukee Braves defeat the New York Yankees to win their first World Series since 1914. (They played in Boston then; the team moved to Wisconsin in 1953.)  The Braves had outfielder Hank Aaron, who'd hit 44 home runs and batted .322 that season, and a pitching staff that included the greats Bob Buhl, Warren Spahn and Lew Burdette.

Leaves, Yard Waste and Recycling

Loose leaf collection season has finally arrived in Bayside.  While some preliminary equipment testing was completed this week, full operations will be taking place next week.  With falling leaves comes a few reminders:

  • Loose leaf will be picked up beginning the week of October 15. Check out the collection schedule.
  • Please rake leaves to the curb, but out of the street - this keeps our narrower roads safer for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrian traffic.
  • When driving, please be congnizant that leaf piles are attractive for kids to play in, so please use caution and stay aware. 

Yard Waste and Recycling Drop-Off Reminder

Residents can drop-off yard waste and recyclables at the sled hill parking lot on Tuesday, October 16 from 4 pm to 8 pm.

Please help us by thanking Fran and congratulating her on 20 great years!


 Coyote Aware

The Police Department has received a few calls lately about coyotes in the Village.  While these animals are normally not threatening, a small percentage can prove more brazen around humans.   


The Village has employed several techniques to help deter coyotes. One unique solution that the Village has used is wolf urine. Wolf urine is successful because wolves are one of coyotes few natural predators, and coyotes will avoid areas were wolves the presence of wolves is sensed. Wolf urine has been placed around the Village where coyotes have been spotted, and has been successful thus far. 


If you notice a coyote on or near your property or would like more information about Bayside's efforts to deter coyotes, please contact Captain Scott McConnell at (414) 351-8800.
