The Village of Pewaukee is currently taking applications for vacancies on the Zoning Board of Appeals  (there is one regular seat and one alternate seat available)

Zoning Board of Appeals members are responsible for hearing and deciding appeals where it is alleged there is an error in any order, requirement, decision or determination made by an administrative official in the enforcement of the Village’s land development code.  Members also authorize upon appeal in specific cases such variances from the terms of the land development code as will not be contrary to the public interest, where owing to special conditions a literal enforcement of the provision of the code will result in no reasonable use, practical difficulty or unnecessary hardship, so that the spirit of the code shall be observed, public safety and welfare secured and substantial justice done. (Zoning Board of Appeals meets as needed, the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7pm at Pewaukee Village Hall)

Common Questions and Answers regarding the new garbage & recycling pick-up in the Village of Pewaukee

Q. What if I occasionally have more refuse than can fit into the provided 64 gallon container?

A. The lid on the can does not need to be completely closed so you can place some bags on top of the container as long as they will not fall off as the container is lifted.

Q. What if I consistently have more refuse than can fit into the 64 gallon container?

A. Residents who consistently have more refuse than can be contained within the 64 gallon refuse container may request a 96 gallon container to replace the 64 gallon container.  The resident will need to contact the Village Hall at 262-691-5660 to request the container change.  Requests to swap out containers must be received at Village Hall by Wednesday for a container to be swapped out that same week.

Q. What if I consistently have more refuse than can fit into the 96 gallon container?

A. Residents who are in need of a permanent second container will need to contract directly with ADS for a second refuse container at a cost of $125 per year for a 64 gallon container. (cost for 2015)

Fire & EMS Update

The Village of Pewaukee has had a contract for Fire/EMS services with the City of Pewaukee since 2004.  You can read a copy of the contract here.

The Village has been trying to negotiate a new contract with the City since October 2013 because our contract cost has increased dramatically due to growth in the City. Click here for a chart of Fire incident costs or here for a chart of EMS incident costs.

The Fire and EMS incidents in the Village are heavily weighted toward EMS calls which are less expensive than a Fire call. Click here for an incident chart by percentage or here for an  incident chart per 1,000 population.

It would be reasonable to expect that the per capita cost in the Village would be less than the City’s per capita cost because we have a greater proportion of the less expensive EMS calls.  That is not the case. Click here for a per capita comparison chart.

The Village goal is to achieve a cost for services that is more in line with the costs typical for communities similar in size and characteristics to the Village. Currently our costs are 2 to 2 ½ times greater than other similar communities. Because we are almost built out, our population is not expected to grow much, but the City has the largest estimated percent of population growth in Waukesha County. That growth will continue to cause double digit increases in the City Fire/EMS budget. Click here for a population chart.

On January 26, 2015 the Village made a presentation to the City with several proposals that are not based on the City’s Fire/EMS budget. We had hoped to start a dialog that would result in a more equitable contract for services. Click here for a PDF copy.

Proper disposal of propane cylinders – June 15, 2015 Press Release

DO NOT put propane containers into your curbside garbage/recycling containers as they pose a very serious risk to workers from explosions caused when the pressurized containers are compacted.  During the last few weeks, multiple explosions have occurred at the Waukesha County/City of Milwaukee Materials Recycling Facility and even caused large fires.

Please dispose of propane containers properly, if you are unsure of where to take them, Click Here for a list of locations and businesses able to properly dispose of old propane tanks/cylinders.

THANK YOU & have a safe summer!
