No Mow May

At a Special Village Board meeting held on April 26th the Board approved an ordinance change that would allow property owners to participate in "No Mow May".  No Mow May has become a popular initiative that encourages people to stop mowing or less often for the month of May.  Letting your grass and weeds grow during the month of May provides a pollinator-friendly habitat in the early growing season for bees, butterflies and other insects.  Participation is completely voluntary.  The Village, as well as Greendale Schools, will be participating in certain green space areas, and signage will be placed by those areas.  There are other ways to promote a pollinator friendly habitat such as reducing pesticide usage and planting pollinator friendly plants.

There will be a limited number of No Mow May signs available to purchase at the Welcome Center starting on Thursday May 5th, for $20 a sign.

2022 Capital Projects - Road Rehabilitation, Street Lighting, Water Mains and Pathways

In the Budget the Village Board added approximately $5 million in additional funding for Capital projects in 2022.  The additional funding will help the Village catch up on deferred maintenance for road rehabilitation, street lighting, water mains and pathways.  A list of projects were bid out, including a number of alternate projects that would be considered depending on how bid pricing came in.   The Board reviewed and approved the bids at their meeting on February 15th.  All projects that were bid out will be completed in 2022.
