Mayor Erik BrooksMayor’s Message: Taking Steps to Hold Property Owners More Accountable
“There are too many bad buildings in South Milwaukee. The city needs to do more to hold these property owners accountable.” I have heard a variation of this statement countless times in recent years, and I’m happy to say we’re stepping up our efforts in this area, including a new vacant property ordinance and additional investment in code enforcement. Read more on Mayor Erik Brooks’ blog.


Friendly Reminder: Spring Yard Clean Up
Please be reminded that residents are not permitted to place any material in the gutters.  Residents are only allowed to place leaves in the gutters from the period of October 1st to November 30th annually.  All other yard waste, grass, and spring rakings must be bagged and taken to the Self-Deposit Station at 1106 Blake Ave.  There is a $3.00 per day usage fee for the Self-Deposit Station.

Self Deposit Station will no longer accept asphalt shingles, beginning March 12th.
Homeowners who pull a permit for a roof tear off will have to rent a dumpster, or find other means to dispose of the old roofing material.  Contractors who pull a permit are not affected by this change, as they are already not allowed to dispose of materials at the Self Deposit Station.
Reasons for the change:
– Asphalt shingles are a recyclable item
– They are a heavy and costly item for the City to dispose of
– The unloading process is time consuming and often creates backups at the Self-Deposit Station
– It is a messy clean-up process

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.
