Health Department Updates:
May is Mental Health Awareness Month-look for yard signs when you’re out and about or pick one up for your yard at the Health Department. Healthy Mind, Healthy Greendale

Summer months are ahead of us; people and dogs will be out and about, which makes this a perfect opportunity for a reminder that picking up your dog's waste is essential for keeping our neighborhoods and public spaces clean and safe. Dog waste can transmit harmful bacteria and parasites, pollute water sources, and create unpleasant odors. Don’t forget to clean up after your dog.  It can be a nuisance to others and the environment but can also result in fines per Greendale Municipal Code of Ordinances 9.08.
