Tax Payment Reminder

A reminder that the first installment tax payment is due by January 31 (next Thursday), in order to avoid penalty and interest charges.

This Week in History

On January 25, 1924, the first Winter Olympics kick off in the Alpine village of Chamonix, France. Originally conceived as "International Winter Sports Week," the Chamonix games were held in association with the 1924 Summer Olympics, held in Paris, and boasted 258 athletes (247 men and 11 women) from 16 nations, competing in a total of 18 events. 

Planning Ahead   

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is in the beginning phases of determining options for the I-43 corridor, including on/off ramps between Silver Spring Drive and WI-60.  Currently, engineers for the WDOT are developing an environmental impact study, which helps identify key concerns, issues and potential problems within the study area.  


On January 30, 2013, the DOT will be holding a public informational meeting at Nicolet High School, 6701 N. Jean Nicolet Rd. Glendale, from 5:00pm - 8:00pm.  There will also be a public meeting on January 31, at Christ Church, 13460 N. Port Washington Rd., Mequon, from 4:00pm - 7:00pm.  


These meetings will be held in an open house format, so that interested parties can review exhibits and handouts.  WisDOT staff members and consultants will be on hand to answer questions, and provide additional insight to the proposed alternatives.  


While the project is in the initial phases, and actual construction is not expected to begin for several years, the planning phase serves as a vital opportunity for those to voice their opinion on the project. 

Spring Primary 

The Spring Primary Election is being held on Tuesday, February 19 from 7:00am - 8:00pm. For Milwaukee County, the Spring Primary includes contests between the Justice of the Supreme Court and the Milwaukee County Circuit Judge, Branch 45. The Ozaukee County ballot will only include the Justice of the Supreme Court race. 


For those who are unable to vote on February 19, or wish to utilize absentee voting,  the absentee voting process at Village Hall begins on February 4 and ends on February 15 at 5:00 pm.  You can stop into Village Hall during regular business hours to vote during this period. 


New Voting Location

Beginning with the Spring Primary election, the Village's voting location will be moved to the gymnasium of Bayside Middle School, located on the north end of the building.  Residents will be able to park in the north parking lot, located off E. Ellsworth Lane, and will have direct access to the  voting location.  


The new location offers several benefits for both election officials and the school, including increased room, greater security benefits, and easier in and out access for voters.  

Bring Your Jar In 

North Shore Fire/Rescue is partnering with the fourteen Milwaukee County Fire Departments and the Hunger Task Force to collect 100,000 jars of peanut butter for Hunger Task Force.  Peanut butter is a staple in Hunger Task Force's distribution of food because it is kid friendly,

nutritious and easy to store.  Starting Thursday, January 17, all sixty fire stations in Milwaukee County will be collection points for Hunger Task Force's Peanut Butter Drive


When you are out doing your grocery shopping next, please buy an extra jar of peanut butter and drop it off at Station #5, located at 665 E. Brown Deer Road in Bayside, or drop it off right at Village Hall.  

In the Book  

Recently, phone books were distributed throughout the Village.  A reminder to residents to please pick these up from the curbside of property.  Phone books left in the

street are unsightly, and can also become projectiles during snow removal operations.  If you don't wish to keep the book, simply put them in your recycling container for the next pickup. 
 Police Academy Is Back

Get signed up today for the Citizen's Police Academy.  The CPA, which is hosted jointly by Bayside, Fox Point, and River Hills, is funded through a federal grant.  Unfortunately, this is the last class being offered under the current grant!  That means it's timed to get signed up.


The Spring class will be held on Thursday nights from 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm, and begin on April 25, with graduation held on June 6, 2013.  The CPA offers hands on experience in the life of a police officer, including:

  • Traffic/High Risk stops
  • Use of Force - firearms (simulated)
  • Drunk Driving enforcement

Participants need to be at least 21 years of age.  Those interested should contact Officer Eric Miller, or call 351-8800 to sign up or for questions.

We would like to extend our congratulations to each of them and look forward to many more years.   

Don't Throw Your Snow

Well, at least not where it doesn't belong.  When it does snow, make sure you only deposit snow from your property to your property.


Village code outlines snow removal:  Sec. 86-72: Snow removed from driveways must be deposited on property from which removed or on village right-of-way adjacent to such property. Snow shall not be carried, thrown or plowed across the public road and deposited on the opposite side.  


Please remind all snow removal services of this rule as well, and make sure they don't redirect snow piles to neighboring properties.
