The Bay Lake ATV club is looking for new members and/or volunteers. The 20 miles of trails and the facilities at the Kewaunee Riverview ATV park are maintained by the Bay Lake ATV club. Please visit our new website at www.kewauneeatvpark.com. The park is open to ATVs, Motorcycles, UTVs and Side by Sides (65” or under). The only other requirement is a DNR registration per off road vehicle and a $5 daily or $30 season pass. My son and I really enjoy riding our motorcycles at the park and we hope to see you out there!
The state has released a second round of grants for small businesses affected by COVID-19. The following link gives specific details on how and when to apply and who is eligible. Share this post with your friends in small business so they are aware. Thank you. Stay safe and strong!
I received a phone call today from one of our part time residents that uses the city Marina. They're first concern was weather the marina would be open next season or not? I informed them that unless we get anymore unexpected major acts of God we will be open. The next thing they did was compliment on what has been done and said they are grateful for it. I was blown away! It is rare that myself, council members or staff get positive feedback or reinforcement that the efforts given are noticed. Is this a cry for a pat on the back? Absolutely not! This is to say thank you to the persons who do acknowledge the effort. It means a great deal! It was a great conversation. They also shared how nice Kewaunee-ites can be and make them feel welcome. That is one of the most valuable things a city could have, a willingness to get to know your neighbor, whether next door or on the next table at a restaurant. I hope sharing this makes someone else's day, our part time friend/visitor made mine! Mayor Jelinek
As many of you know there is a petition going around Kewaunee for the KHS school district to seek to dismantle systems of harm against people of color, work to rebuild more equitable structures, and better prepare students to participate fully in a diverse society. I would encourage all KHS alum, current students, and residents to sign it. Please click on the link below to add your name to this very important cause. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GJap6ZKQ0kpUFXjo0WIh6H6GO7cPIer80xVwZCGvpVs/edit?usp=sharing
I’m going to go there because I’m tired of the hypocrisy & nonsense. Why is the city closing museums, celebratations, parks, sporting events, etc. Yet all of us saw the protestors Friday by the town’s gazebo? None of them were social distancing, only a few had masks, etc. Why is protesting “covid safe” but the rest of our summer community activities canceled due to covid? This town needs to get it together! Make a discussion & stick w/ it.
I think this needs to be done in Kewaunee! Do you know how hard it is to park ANYWHERE in kewaunee when using my walker or wheelchair. There’s zero handicapped parking downtown, at parks, any events at Lakehaven, etc. kewaunee is a great place to live, as long as you don’t leave your house. Please consider this as a real issue before tourists season comes around. If you’re interested in taking this suggestion seriously, myself & any handicapped resident I’m sure would be willing to discuss mobility in our town. Thank you.
We’ve got a lost dog in the City of Kewaunee. Her name is Coco. She’s a white Chihuahua with a blue collar. Last seen in the field behind the apartments on Marquette around 0800 Saturday morning. She’s been lost since Friday night. She is microchipped and her tags also have her home address. Reward for information leading to her return. If you see her, she’s more likely to approach you if you’re down on the ground.

Question, with all the talk of the waterfront development, were do visiting dog owners and locals play with their pets? i.e. dog park and/or beach. The city website list no such facilities and the county list 3 parks only that are dog friendly. Or asking the question in another way, were can I take my pet to play in the water on a hot day?
So, we haven’t had our garbage picked up since the 14th. We called Advanced Disposal on Wednesday, and they assured us it would be picked up. By 3 pm this afternoon, it still hadn’t been picked up, so I called them again. Again we were assured that the truck was en route. Now it’s after five and the game badge is still sitting there. Our bin is overflowing with a second can full, and we now have to wait another week? What gives?
We were cleaning our sidewalks as expected. While we were doing that the PLOW truck went past fast enough to cover Rose, fortunately, no rocks or hard material, or this post would be by a Lawyer. SLOW DOWN DRIVERS, DON'T FILL THE SIDEWALKS WITH SNOW THAT RESIDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO CLEAN.
Beautiful city.
