2021 REVALUATION - Updated 11/19/2020
The City is undertaking a revaluation of all taxable properties for the tax year 2021. The purpose of the revaluation is not to raise taxes but rather to provide a fair distribution of the property tax burden based on the market value of each property. As the first visible step to citizens, the City Assessor, Associated Appraisal Consultants, Inc., has sent out Request to View Property Notice letters to all property owners in the City of Port Washington. For additional information about the Revaluation, please click here: City of Port Washington Assessor page.

Navigating from Safer at Home to Your Home Port Plan - Updated 11/19/2020
Governor Evers Issues New Statewide Mandatory Mask Order
Tuesday, September 22nd, Gov. Tony Evers declared a Public Health Emergency and issued an Emergency Order requiring individuals to wear face coverings when indoors and not in a private residence, with some exceptions as clarified and defined in the order. The order is effective on Tuesday, September 22nd and will expire on Saturday, November 21, 2020.

On June 24, 2020, the Port Washington Common Council adopted the Navigating from Safer at Home to Your Home Port Plan. The plan serves as a set of guidelines to aid staff and local officials in executing the City’s COVID-19 response and recovery. The City intends to be supportive of the requirements and recommendations of the Badger Bounce Back and the county Blueprint for Reopening Washington and Ozaukee Counties plans. However, the City may, as deemed necessary, implement additional measures or restrictions due to local impact(s). It may also help provide definition to some areas left unclear by state orders or where local enforcement is involved. This was done with the understanding that the situation(s) and related policies and actions for other surrounding communities may not be compatible with the City’s, but in some cases may be.

It is subject to change based on local or statewide circumstances, local health official recommendations, or COVID-19 developments.

During the response and recovery to COVID-19, the City will continue to deliver quality public services, maintain the infrastructure and build organizational resilience and sustainability.

The City is in Phase 1, based on the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Badger Bounce Back Gating Criteria. As of August 21, 2020 three out of six criteria are being met. To review the metrics and data, go to https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/prepare.htm. It is also worth mentioning, the case status indicators for Washington and Ozaukee County, as reported by the Washington Ozaukee Public Health Department are red (high), see below.

Notice From City Clerk - Updated 11/06/2020
POST-ELECTION PROCESS
City of Port Washington - VoteIf you are checking your voting record, your election participation information will not be available until the election is reconciled and closed out. This process is completed by the City Clerk’s office. All individual voters that cast a ballot for the November 3rd General Election will have the bar code that appears in the Poll Book next to their name scanned in. The scanning is done manually by the City Clerk and staff for every participating voter, in every poll book. With the total votes cast of 7,687, this process takes many weeks to complete, along with all the election day voter registrations that must be hand entered as well. The Wisconsin Statutory deadline for reconciliation and closing of the election is 45 days, which is December 18th. With the volume of the Presidential Election turnout, I expect it will take much of that time to complete this detailed process. We continue to be dedicated and diligent with a focus on accuracy. The end goal to complete it as efficiently as possible and we appreciate your patience at this time, thank you.

CITY ELECTION OFFICIALS
I would like to personally thank my Chief Election Inspectors, Poll Workers and staff for their dedication and tireless effort throughout this election. Many of these individuals worked up to 18 hours on Election Day, and some for weeks prior assisting with In-Person absentee voting and mailing out absentee ballots, with a total issued of 5,538. These individuals are our friends, neighbors and share their love of our community and take pride in their civic duty. If you know them or see them out and about, please take a minute to thank them, that is something that is often forgotten once election day is over.

Have YOUR VOICE Heard about the City Establishing a Diversity and Inclusion Committee! - Updated 10/06/2020
Recently, the City started a conversation about establishing a Diversity and Inclusion Committee. The mission of this Committee would be to “review City policies, procedures and practices with a focus on diversity and inclusion regardless of race, color, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender identity, marital or familial status, immigration status, sexual orientation, age, economic status, disability, and other individual identities. Further, the Committee will make recommendations to the Mayor, City Common Council, Police and Fire Commission and City Administrator to promote an organizational and community culture that values diversity and inclusion.” As a part of the process to determine how the City will move forward we want to hear from YOU. Please take five minutes to share your opinion here.

Brush Collection & Leaf Pick-Up - Updated 10/02/2020
Brush Collection: Reminder that the last week of brush collection is the week of October 19th. Brush must be out by 7:00 a.m. on Monday, October 19, 2020 to be collected for that week. Brush collection is for tree trimming and small removals (8” diameter or less.) Large tree removals and large quantities of brush need to be removed by a private contractor. Please stack brush in neat individual piles for easier pickup with the cut ends pointing in the direction of traffic. Please do not make one large pile with branches stacked in all different directions. Trimmings less than 1’ in length need to 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.

Leaf Pick-Up: Leaf pickup begins October 5th. Residents may begin raking leaves into the streets beginning Monday, October 5, 2020 and can continue raking until Sunday, November 29, 2020, weather permitting. Leaves can also be bagged and brought down to the Municipal Yard, 333 North Moore Road, until Saturday, December 5, 2020. The yard is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Residents should not place branches, brush, plotted plants, or grass clippings into the gutter with leaves. These items clog the sweeper trucks and cause downtime. Piles with these items will not be picked up by city crews.
