With all the challenges faced in 2020, we wanted to take a moment to highlight a 2020 success in the West Allis community. During the month of November, the West Allis Community Improvement Foundation hosted a Holiday Food Drive and Drive-Thru Food Drive to help fulfill an urgent need for 12 West Allis food pantries. This new format created an easy, fun, safe way to donate and help families in our community before the holiday season.

With the outpouring support from the community, we were able to raise $11,950 for 12 local food pantries. While there are so many deserving food pantries and organizations in need in our community, these are the pantries your donations went to:

First Lutheran Church
First United Methodist Church of West Allis
Good Samaritan Outreach
Holy Assumption - St. Augustine
Mother of Perpetual Help West Allis
Mount Hope Lutheran Church
St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church
St. Matthias Catholic Parish
St. Peter’s Episcopal
St. Rita Parish-West Allis
Woodlawn Evangelical Lutheran Church
Apostle Presbyterian Church

To our community members who generously donated a significant amount, we’d like to acknowledge and thank you for your contribution; Alderman Thomas Lajsic, Ellen Saksefski, Tina Krueger, Cheryl Frost, Sarah Rivera, Mary Hook, and Frank Miles. Thank you to the even longer list of smaller donations that allowed us to give $1,000 to each food pantry.

We would also like the thank Universal Health Services, Inc. for their incredibly generous monetary donation of $10,000 in support of our local food pantries.

The support we receive each year continues to amaze us. Thank you again to everyone in the community who pitched in to volunteer, drop off food, or provided monetary donations. Every contribution big or small goes a long way.

We have been notified of a water main break in the area of 87th & Hayes. We need fiber, electric, and gas underground utilities marked and then we will begin repairs in 1-2 hours. In the meantime, we will be drilling in the street to pinpoint the location of the leak. We expect the repairs to take approximately 6 hours so we hope to be done with the repairs by 3:00 pm today. There are 8 residential properties in this area that may have water shut off for these repairs today. We will notify the specific properties as soon as we know more. Thank you for your patience.

City Snow Plow Operations Update.

Here is a quick update regarding the snow plowing operations for today’s storm. All mains, including medians and turn lanes, have been plowed and salted. Residential areas, including cul-de-sacs and dead-ends, will be plowed and salted by 4 p.m. today. The 40 miles of alleys will also be addressed by 4 p.m. today as well.

We will be scheduling a re-plow operation for 9 p.m. tonight that will include 6 operators to address those areas where there were parked vehicles during the plowing operation for residential and main streets.

Staff will continue to plow the approximate 15 miles of the public sidewalk and will continue to address tomorrow during the normal work shift.

Refuse and recycling operations continue as scheduled today. Remember to please help our DPW crews and shovel out your carts.

Thank you for your patience.

12/30/2020

We are responding to a main break reported by our Streets division while plowing snow. The location is 84th and Cleveland. We will be setting up barricades and will be rerouting traffic around the work zone. We expect to be working on the main break for the majority of the day and hope to be done before 3:00 pm. It may be a little more difficult to locate the break due to the snow fall last night. We will likely need to shut off some services while we repair the break, but will notify property owners as soon as we locate the source of the leak. In the area, there appears to be 2 commercial office buildings that may be affected. Due to out of service valve, additional residential properties will also be shut off. The properties are on the east side of 84th Street from Cleveland to Arthur Ave. We hope to have water restored by 3:00 pm today. Thank you for your patience

To support program costs, the Department of Public Works is increasing sanitation program fees beginning at the start of 2021.

Please find the adjusted fee schedule for the Municipal Yard Drop-Off location and fees for the special collection of designated materials at residential locations. These fees were adjusted to recoup some of the incurred labor, equipment, and processing costs for these special collections and/or processing of these materials at our drop-off locations.

The West Allis Department of Public Works manages a comprehensive refuse and recycling program. The program serves nearly 17,500 parcels or 20,800 total residential living units during a normal collection week and provides a suite of options for residents to manage household recycling, refuse, special waste, and yard waste in a manner that is efficient, convenient, environmentally sound, and prioritizes public health and safety. The program relies on fee revenue to offset a portion of the total program cost. Fees for the overall program have not increased in over seven years.

For more information about the Department of Public Works services and to view the list of fees, please visit www.westalliswi.gov/dpw.
