This Week In History

On November 10, 1969, "Sesame Street," a pioneering TV show that would teach generations of young children the alphabet and how to count, makes its broadcast debut. "Sesame Street," with its memorable theme song ("Can you tell me how to get/How to get to Sesame Street"), went on to become the most widely viewed children's program in the world. It has aired in more than 120 countries.

Bayside Results

The big day has finally come and gone.  With the election ovresults er and the votes tallied, Bayside's results include:

  • 2,957 total ballots cast
  • 1,149 Absentee ballots
  • 119 new registrants
  • 82.51% total voter turnout

Overall, a very impress day for Bayside!  Take a look at full election results (Bayside only). 


Signs Removed

Don't forget - with the election over, all political signs must now be removed.  As outlined in Village code, Section 78-5(e) An election campaign sign shall not be placed either prior to or after the election period defined in Wisconsin Statutes.

Steer Clear

As a friendly reminder, please make sure you never approach a Village vehicle while in operation.  Often, while performing job duties such as collecting materials (garbage, recycling, leaves, etc.), the operator may be focused on the job at hand, and may not initially notice someone so close the equipment - this can put both the operator and resident's safety in question. 

Leading the Way  

Recently, Bayside resident Emily Vail Pfaff was highlighted on Bayside, as someone who takes sustainability and environmental awareness to heart. 


Vail Pfaff promotes increased recycling as opposed to landfilling fees - a practice that provides savings for the entire Village of Bayside.  Recycling material provides a rebate to the community, while landfilling garbage is something that costs money to dispose of. 

Upcoming Leaf Collection

Loose leaves will again be collected the week of November 12, and again the week of November 26, weather permitting (this will be the final leaf collection of 2012) - check out the collection schedule to stay up to date. 


Remember, loose leaf collection occurs every other week - we ask that residents only place leaves out prior to their weekly collection to avoid road obstruction.  The amount and moisture content of leaves can slow crews - we ask for patience during leaf pickup.  If crews do run behind schedule, be assured they will get to your area for pickup. 

Wanna Help?

While we're just heading into the winter months - Bayside is already thinking Spring!  That's why the Village is in the process of planning for the 2013 Spring "Adopt-A-Tree" program.  As in previous year's "Adopt-A-Tree" programs, Bayside will offer interested residents a chance to have a tree planted by the Village in the right-of-way in front of your home.  The Village works with residents to find the best location for trees, with residents required to take care of the maintenance and watering of the tree.


Limited tree quantities and funding are available for this project, and unfortunately the Village cannot guarantee everyone a tree. Look for this program to be advertised by the Village as spring gets closer. If interested or for more information, contact Alex Henderson at 414-351-8813.

Village Webpage of the Week: The Online Scene  

Each month, Village residents receive a paper copy of the newsletter, Village Scene at their home.  Ever wish you could remember that certain article, or even check out homes that were previously sold in the Village? You can - all from the comfort of your home.  Check out the Scene online today!


Did you know?

The Village Scene is produced and distributed by a private company, and no Village tax payer funds are used.  The Village retains final editorial control, and does provide articles each month for residential benefit. 


Bayside Village Attorney, and resident, Chris Jaekels was honored this week as Municipal Lawyer of the Year by Best Lawyers In America.  Jaekels, who has served as the Village Attorney since 2000, practices law with Davis & Kelthau, S.C.  His areas of practice also include environmental law, and he serves as the municipal attorney for the Village of Whitefish Bay as well. 


Congrats Chris!
