Press Release: Village Board Adopts Resolution Opposing Greendale Health Officer's Order
On May 15th the Village Board held a Special meeting and passed a resolution opposing the Greendale Health Order.  The resolution does not change the order, but indicates the Village Board's position on continued restrictions.  Attached is the press release.
Night Parking Restrictions
The Police Department will begin enforcing night time parking restrictions on June 1st.  Please see the Police Department page for information on how to obtain a parking permit.
COVID-19 Public Health Order
On May 13th the Wisconsin Supreme Court overruled the Wisconsin Safer at Home order.  The Public Health Officers of Milwaukee County have issued their own order, which is in effect until 11:59 pm on May 21st.  The order is similar to the Safer at Home restrictions with some modifications, see attachment for the full order
Water Bills

With the Village Hall being closed you may pay your water bill online, by mailing it in, or by leaving it in the Village's drop box in the parking lot.

We have been receiving a number of questions regarding the bill amounts.  In July 2019 a letter was sent out to all water bill users (attached) stating that there will be an additional $16.50 (for the average customer with a 5/8 meter) added to water bills for public fire protection.  There is also a rate increase that went into effect on this water bill.  Additionally, we had to estimate a large number of bills due to a server crash of the meter reading software.  If the estimated bill is higher than the customer believes is appropriate the next bill will reflect the actual usage and it will balance out on the next bill.

North Anchor Site Redevelopment and other Development in the Southridge Mall Area
Earlier this year we learned that Sears was closing hundreds of stores across the nation.  We later learned that the Sears store at Southridge was closing.  Since hearing this news the Village Board has met to discuss plans to redevelop the north anchor site.  Over the past couple of months the Village has met with representatives from the owners of the north anchor site, Seritage Growth Properties. We have also met with representatives from the City of Greenfield since part of the site is located in Greenfield. Discussions with Seritage have gone very well.  Seritage, Greenfield and the Village are working on a redevelopment plan for the north anchor site.  (Village of Greendale Press Release)
