A Great 4th of July!

Congratulations to our winners in the bike decorating contest and the best dog contest! What a fun day! 
New to the Village? Have items to recycle? 

A number of homes have sold this year in the Village. We know that many of our new residents are looking to recycle the items they used for moving or items they do not want in their new house. We want to let you know about Bayside's most popular Village event.... Clean-Up Days!


The Summer Community Clean-Up Day is the perfect opportunity to make sure any unneeded items  go to the right place. 

Interested in Municipal Water? 

On June 26, a number of residents in the central section of the Village met with resident Penny, Goldman, Village Staff and representatives from the Mequon Water Utility to discuss the potential of connecting to municipal water. During the meeting and since the meeting we have received numerous calls from individuals throughout the Village on connecting to municipal water. To that end, to express your interest in municipal water, please complete a quick online survey


Another informational meeting will be held at 6pm on July 25 at Village Hall. Anyone is welcome to attend. Or for additional information on municipal water you can view the previous public meeting presentations on the Village's website

H20 Construction Update 

The voluntary municipal water project continues to move forward, with nearly 75% of the mainline constructed in the southwest neighborhood. Directional drilling construction crews are expected to move in to the Ravine Baye Road area next week. With both trenching and directional boring taking place, residents will continue to see construction throughout the area, and are reminded to please use caution and drive responsibly through work zones.  


In addition, many of the initial construction zones are now seeing final landscape restoration taking place.  After your lawn has been graded, top soiled and seeded, residents are asked to water their lawn to ensure proper grass growth.  Grass should be watered for a period long enough for water to soak the top 2-3 inches of soil.  Remember that seeds that dry out will die.  Watering is best done in the morning hours, but can be done intermittently throughout the day when the soil begins to dry out (soil turns a lighter color).  


You can continue to follow the water construction progress on the map and on the Village's website

Cone It Off

If you have a contractor or landscaper doing work at your home, make sure that there are cones placed around their vehicle on the street.


The cones warn approaching drivers and bike riders of the parked vehicle and help to prevent accidents. 

Off the Street

Yard waste collection will take place in the Village this coming week starting on Wednesday, July 10. Just a few reminders about yard waste:

  • Please bag your yard waste. This makes it easier for Village crews to collect the waste and keeps our Village looking neat.
  • Please keep your yard waste off the road. This helps prevent accidents and safety hazards for bike riders, cars and pedestrians.  
  • Please have your yard waste out by 7am on Wednesdays the week of yard waste collection.
Open Book

Open Book for the Board of Review is scheduled for next Tuesday, July 9 from 9am -12:15pm and 1:30-4pm at Village Hall. Open Book provides the opportunity for residents to review the 2013 preliminary assessment rolls and speak with representatives from the Village's assessor, Accurate Appraisal, LLC, about their property's assessed value. If your property assessment changed, a notice was mailed to your home last week Tuesday, June 25. 


Residents can make an appointment for Open Book by contacting Accurate Appraisal at 800-770-3927 or on  Accurate's website. 

Summer Safety Tips 

We generally like to relax and enjoy the warm summer months, but the warm weather provides new opportunities for criminals. Keep these safety tips in mind: 

  • Lock your doors and windows when you are away from your home or even when you are home but are outside in your yard.
  • Have someone check your home when you are away on vacation. Also, don't post on Facebook or social media sites that you are away.. you never know who many be watching.
  • Always lock your car, close all the windows and take your keys with you when your car is parked outside.
  • Don't leave valuables in your car, if you must leave items in your car put them in your truck.
  • Lock up your bikes when they are not in use. 
  • Keep your garage door closed when you are not nearby. Bicycles, tools and sports equipment stored in the garage are easy targets for criminals when the garage is open and unattended.
