state of Wisconsin, located at the head of Green Bay, a sub-basin of Lake Michigan, at the mouth of the Fox River. It has an elevation of 581 feet (177 m) above sea level and is located 112 miles (180 km) north of Milwaukee. As of the 2000 United States Census, Green Bay had a population of 102,313. Its 2008 estimated census was 101,025. The Town of Green Bay is located several miles northeast of the city. It is the third-largest city in the state of Wisconsin, after Milwaukee and Madison. It is also the third-largest city on the west shore of Lake Michigan, after Chicago and Milwaukee. Green Bay is the principal city of the Green Bay Metropolitan Statistical Area, which covers Brown, Kewaunee, and Oconto Counties and had a combined population of 282,599 at the 2000 census. The 2008 estimated population of the Green Bay metropolitan area is 302,935. Green Bay is an industrial city with several meatpacking and paper plants, and a port on the bay of Green Bay, an arm of Lake Michigan. It is home to the National Railroad Museum; the Neville Public Museum, with exhibitions of art, history, and science; and the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay. The Green Bay Packers professional football team was formed in the city in 1919 and joined the National Football League (NFL) in 1921. Green Bay is by far the smallest market with an NFL team, although the Packers are avidly supported in the larger Milwaukee market and throughout Wisconsin and in Michigan in the Upper Peninsula. Green Bay is unofficially nicknamed "Titletown, USA" for the number of NFL titles (13) it has won over the years (including the first two Super Bowls and two further victories in 1997 and 2011). The name appears on the city seal, is used by the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce for its web address, and variations of the word appear in the name of more than two dozen local businesses. Green Bay has been awarded the title of All-America City twice, in 1964, and 1999.

Each year on November 11th, we recognize the service of veterans. Originally called “armistice day,” it commemorated the end of World War I. Today, communities celebrate with gatherings, parades and the like. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City encourages residents to celebrate Veterans Day by talking to vets you know, reading about the experiences of vets and contributing to entities that support veterans.

Swamp the City of Green Bay, ask them these questions: 1.How much money from Zuckerberg's $300 million did they get to sway the vote?The $6.3 million in funding was awarded to Green Bay, Kenosha, Madison, Milwaukee, and Racine(Democrat cities ONLY) in Wisconsin. The money will pay for drive-thru voting locations, equipment to process mail ballots and more. ELECTION INTERFERENCE! 2. Why did they hire 3 outside companies to count ballots when our own National Guard were available to help? 3. Ask why a witness saw a Shred It truck outside of the KI Ballroom the morning of the 4th(counting place)? 4. Ask if they got a 30 day approval PRIOR to moving machines to the KI Ballroom for counting? 5. Ask if tabulators were empty of ballots prior to election day? 6. Ask how many illegals voted without checking id's?or registered. 7. Ask who supplied and where voting machines came from? See#1 These are very valid questions that need answering! Wisconsin has been paid by Zuckerberg to commit voter fraud!
If the city requires us to recycle why is there no place to take cardboard to?
Bridge lighting, Monday November 2nd for Color the World Orange Day. It's to make awareness for CRPS (Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome) the most painful disease known.
Get out and vote... your voice counts!
Doesn't Green Bay care enough about the environment to issue recycling bins? Why do we have to pay $95 for one? Especially if we rent
Here is a great video about voter registration and information on photo ID requirements from the Wisconsin Disability Vote Coalition!
Bridge lights red/white/blue tonight for 9/11 ? **Update. Mayor Genrich confirmed this will be happening tonight.
Went past this for 3 days and nothing. The bike lanes in Green Bay are so bad I went through 1 rin and three tires now because of rocks glass potholes Debris.. I ride in the road and avoid the bike lanes aswell as many more . What do we need to do to get this problem solved with the bike lanes? Hire me to clean them like I did today ?
I understand the city Council has recently received a request to defund the Green Bay Police Department. I am sure i am not the only member of the community who adamantly opposes defunding our police! If anything, we should be increasing funding! Every police officer should have a body camera and a dash camera, so events can be captured in real time and a complete picture of events is available for transparency. Not some skewed version of events someone may have captured on their cell phone. Officers should be engaged in continued education, as other professions are to keep their skills sharp, such as de-escalation training. Removing our liaison officers in our schools will only escalate violence in our schools and is a horrible idea. Social workers can only do so much and providing protection is not one of those things. We should definitely not be removing tools from their tool box! Rubber bullets and tear gas are nonlethal ways of dispersing rioters and looters who are threatening property, other citizens and the police. There have been many peaceful protests in Brown County. If people are protesting peacefully, then there is no need for officers to deploy measures to protect property, citizens and themselves, but having the vital tools to do so is imperative! Dr. Tony Evans has suggested that churches need to get involved in our communities and have suggested they partner with homeless shelters and police departments to build relationships. I challenge churches to do so! Invite them in and get to know them! I worked in an after school program for a few years at an east side elementary that was primarily filled with minority students. As a service learning project, the kids wrote thank you cards to the police officers and made them friendship bracelets out of rubber bands. We then invited a couple of officers in to receive those items and they spent an hour with the kids talking about what they do and having a Q&A session. The officers brought the kids coloring books and pencils. The kids were thrilled! They learned the police were there to serve and protect and that they were not something to be feared! This is how we make positive change in our communities! Through communication and getting to know those who risk their lives to protect ours! DO NOT DEFUND THE POLICE!
I want people to boycott business' so the city goes bankrupt!
