This Week in History

On May 10 1869, the presidents of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads met in Promontory, Utah, and drove a ceremonial last spike into a rail line that connected their railroads. This made transcontinental railroad travel possible for the first time in U.S. history. 

Yard Waste and Recycling Drop-Off

yard waste

On Tuesday, May 14 between 4pm and 8pm residents can drop off yard waste and recycling (including electronics). The drop-off is taking place at the sled hill parking lot, located off of Fairy Chasm Road.

After this coming Tuesday, the next drop off night will be on June 11. As always, you can recycle batteries, cell phones, light bulbs and ink cartridges at Village Hall during business hours.
Destination Restoration

The railroad trestle that

crosses Brown Deer Road will be getting a new look in coming weeks. A contractor will be conducting lead abatement and then will be painting the trestle. During the project there will be lane closures on Brown Deer Road. The project is scheduled to start on Monday, May 20 and will last approximately one week. 


Water is Coming

Beginning on Monday, May 13 construction on the voluntary municipal water project will be starting in the Village. The majority of the project will take place in the southwest portion of the Village, with an area bounded by Port Washington Road, Fairy Chasm Road, Regent Road, and Brown Deer Road.  


The project will be completed in phases and is expected to run 3-4 months. Due to the construction there will be periodic lane closures on local roads. You can visit the Village's website for the most updated information throughout the project.  


If you have any questions about the project, please contact Alex Henderson at 414-351-8812. 





This Spring the Village has seen a large increase in the number of building, plumbing and electric permits as well as in the number of homes needing inspection for the Code Compliance program. For instance, plumbing permits are up 50% from this time last year and Code Compliance initial inspections are up 29%. The Village's contracted building inspector is working very hard to make sure that everyone receives their permits or reports as quickly as possible.


Report Dead Birds

The North Shore Health Department's Dead Bird Reporting Hotline is officially open!  If you see a dead bird you can call 1-800-433-1610.  Hotline staff can answer questions about dead birds and provide information on safe handling and disposal.  


Some birds will be tested for West Nile Virus (WNV).  Once a bird in a Wisconsin county has been shown to have WNV, no further birds will be tested from that county.  The best way to prevent WNV and other mosquito-borne infections is by protecting yourself and eliminating standing water.  Even a small amount of water left in any type of outdoor container, such as children's toys or gardening  pots can be a breeding ground.

Do you?  Call the North Shore Health Department at 414-371-2980 for an appointment to get your blood pressure checked.
