Navigating from Safer at Home to Your Home Port Plan - Updated 07/31/2020
On Tuesday, June 2, 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 July 31, 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.

There is now an additional drop box inside the main entrance of City Hall (100 West Grand Avenue). You can now place water bills, parking tickets, dog licenses, tax bills, permits, applications for voter registration, and other items in this new drop box. We also have the outside drop box at the back of City Hall next to the back door for your convenience.

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.
