City of Port Washington News Release - Safer At Home
On Wednesday, May 13, 2020 the Wisconsin Supreme Court issued a 4-3 decision striking down various portions of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Emergency Order No. 28, which closed non-essential businesses, restricted other business operations, and limited social interactions and activities in an effort to stop the spread of a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19). In response to this action, the Washington-Ozaukee Public Health Department officers have advised that no similar countywide orders are contemplated at this time, but that they will respond to future COVID-19 outbreaks on a case-by-case basis.

With COVID-19 still present and communicable, the Mayor and City officials strongly encourage citizens and business operators to voluntarily practice social distancing, limit the number of people gathering together in one place, continue hand-washing protocols, use of face-masks, avoid face-touching, and provide as safe a place as possible for customers, patrons, employees, guests and visitors. Business owners and operators are also encouraged to check with their insurance representatives to determine the best practices to follow to avoid or minimize potential liability exposure relating to COVID-19.

City officials further recommend that citizens and other interested persons review and follow the guidelines and public health tips available through the Washington-Ozaukee Public Health Department (Blueprint for Reopening) at http://www.washozwi.gov/Portals/WashOzHealthDept/BlueprintFAQ_v_11_514_1.pdf, the State Department of Health Services (Badger Bounce Back Plan) at https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/publications/p02653a.pdf, and the Federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/index.html.

City Street Yard Reopening - Updated 04/13/2020
The Street Yard will be open, starting Tuesday, April 14, 2020. The schedule is the same - Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED.

Brush Collection
Brush collection begins bi-weekly on April 20, 2020. Weekly collection begins June 8, 2020. Brush collection is for tree trimming and small tree removals (8-inch or less in diameter). Large tree removals and large quantities of brush need to be removed with a private contractor. Stack brush in small neat piles for easier pickup. Do not make one large pile with branches in different directions. Brush stacked in one large pile or with branches in all directions will be tagged and residents will have to re-stack piles which will be picked up the next week. The longer the branches the better, no need to cut branches into small pieces. Trimmings less than 1 foot must be placed in a pail, garbage can, or some sort of container for easier pick up. The city is not responsible for brush on vacant lots.

Disinfectant Wipes
Please DO NOT flush Disinfectant Wipes down the toilet. These will not break down in the City sewer and can potentially plug your sewer lateral or the main City sewer. In addition they can plug pumps and can cause problems at the plant or on their way to the plant. Despite what some packaging claims, they ARE NOT Flushable for the reason that they will not break down. Please throw them away in the garbage. If you have any questions please call Wastewater Superintendent Dan Buehler at 262-284-5051 or email him at dbuehler@cpwwi.org.

Water/Sewer Utility Bill Payments
During the "Safer at Home" mandate, the Water Utility encourages everyone who is able to pay their water bill, to pay online thru Payment Service Network (PSN) at the City of Port Washington Water Payment Portal or through their personal bank online portal.
