Spring Primary – Election Results

Peanut Butter Collection

The South Milwaukee Fire Department, along with every fire station in Milwaukee County, has kicked off their annual peanut butter collection campaign. Our goal, county-wide, is to collect 35,000 jars by March 3rd.

Here in South Milwaukee, donations can be dropped off at the Fire Department, Health Department, Senior Center, Public LIbrary or City Hall, and every single jar donated goes directly to Human Concerns for distribution right here in our community.



Winter Parking Permits Are Available
Residents are encouraged to plan ahead and purchase your winter parking permits early.  The South Milwaukee Police Department will have limited evening hours available to purchase permits, so plan accordingly.

Citizens need to be mindful of the increase in coyote activity.  Especially if they have small pets, they should keep a close eye on their pets when outside.  Adult coyotes typically mate in February so residents may see an increase in activity. Click here for more information.
