    WAUKESHA COUNTY AND CITY LEADERS REMIND RESIDENTS: THERE’S STILL TIME TO GET YOUR FLU SHOT! (WAUKESHA...

    There's Still Time To Get Your Flu Shot!


    (WAUKESHA, WI) – If you still haven’t gotten this season’s flu shot, it’s not too late. Today, Waukesha County’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Director Antwayne Robertson and City of Waukesha Mayor Shawn Reilly got their annual flu shots at Waukesha County Public Health. They want to remind residents that even though it’s later in the season, there’s still time to protect themselves and family members against the flu. Video of today’s event is available here.

    “Although the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that most people get their flu shot by the end of October, flu cases don’t peak until between December and March,” said Waukesha County Public Health Officer Ben Jones. “So even if you’ve waited a bit longer than this season, there’s still plenty of time to protect yourself and your family from the influenza virus.”

    An annual flu vaccine is the first and best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations. The more people who get vaccinated, the more people will be protected from flu, including older people, very young children, pregnant women and people with certain health conditions who are more vulnerable to serious flu complications.

    More information is available at www.waukeshacounty.gov/flu/.

Today is the final day of National Preparedness Month, a nationwide effort sponsored by the US Department of Homeland Security, to encourage Americans to do simple things to prepare themselves in the event of a disaster or emergency.   Before winter approaches:

    • Update your home emergency kit with rock salt, sand, shovels, heating fuel, and warm clothing
    • Winterize your vehicle and stock it with a travel emergency kit
    • Make a family communications plan so everyone knows what to do in case you get separated
    • Consider purchasing a NOAA Weather Radio to get alerts and warnings directly from the NWS
    • Sign up to receive emergency alert texts here
    • Download FEMA’s Be Smart. Know Your Alerts and Warnings app.

    WAUKESHA COUNTY EXECUTIVE PAUL FARROW INTRODUCES 2017 EXECUTIVE BUDGET   (WAUKESHA, WI) – Waukesha County E...

    Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow Introduces 2017 Executive Budget


    WAUKESHA COUNTY EXECUTIVE PAUL FARROW INTRODUCES 2017 EXECUTIVE BUDGET

     (WAUKESHA, WI) – Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow has introduced his 2017 Executive Budget to the Waukesha County Board of Supervisors. The budget freezes the County tax bill on a median-valued home and reduces the tax rate while funding public safety and economic development. The County Board is expected to pass the final budget in November.

     “I’m proud to say that this budget is in line with the priorities of our residents,” said County Executive Paul Farrow. “It upholds Waukesha County’s reputation as a low tax leader while funding the areas of Justice and Public Safety. This budget also ensures that Waukesha County will thrive in the future by investing in economic development.”

     If the County Executive’s Budget is passed as-is, a County homeowner with a median-valued home of $256,650 will see no change from last year on the county portion of their tax bill. The tax rate would also drop from $2.04 to $1.99 per thousand dollars of home value.

     The 2017 Waukesha County Executive Budget funds public safety priorities while focusing on efficiency. In addition, the plan invests in the second phase of a fire department study to identify potential partnerships between municipalities to save taxpayer money.

     The budget also supports the new Waukesha County Center for Growth, an economic development partnership between the County, the City of Waukesha, the Waukesha County Business Alliance, and the University of Wisconsin Small Business Development Center.

     About the 2017 Waukesha County Executive Budget

    The complete 2017 Waukesha County Executive Budget is online at www.waukeshacounty.gov/Budget.

  • Apricot Pops Recipe
    Ingredients:

    1 can (15 ounces) apricots, packed in juice
    2 cartons (6 ounces each) light vanilla yogurt
    Supplies:
    8 small paper cups
    8 plastic spoons or popsicle sticks (for handles)

    Directions:
    1. Drain apricots.
    2. Combine the drained apricots and yogurt. Blend until smooth with a blender or food processor.
    3. our mixture into 8 small paper cups and put in freezer. After half an hour (when they start to freeze), stand a popsicle stick or plastic spoon in the pops.
    4. Freeze 3-4 hours or until pops are solid.
    5. Remove from cup to serve. Place bottom of cup under hot running water for 20 seconds. Peel off paper cup.

    Clever ideas:
    • No blender? Cut apricots into small pieces and stir into the yogurt.
    • Make pops with plain Greek yogurt sweetened with honey instead of light vanilla yogurt.
    • Serve like ice cream. Pour mixture into plastic container, cover, and freeze 3-4 hours or until firm. Thaw 10 minutes before serving.
    • Try with other canned fruits like peaches or mandarin oranges.

      WAUKESHA COUNTY EXECUTIVE PAUL FARROW CUTS BORROWING BY $1.5 MILLION IN 2017

      New 5-Year Capital Plan Reduces Expenditures by $4 Million in First Year
       

      (WAUKESHA, WI) –Waukesha County’s 2017 – 2021 Capital Plan will reduce borrowing in year one of the Plan to $10M, down from $11.5M in 2016. The Capital Plan includes funding for all major projects proposed in the County budget over the next five years, such as road, facility, and parks projects, as well as investments in technology. Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow will introduce the Plan to the Board of Supervisors today.

      “I’m proud to introduce a five-year Plan that not only cuts $1.5M in borrowing in its first year, but also reduces spending by nearly $4M in that same year,” said Farrow. “In addition, we’re continuing to pay down debt at a faster rate than we’re adding it.”

      One of the facilities projects in the Plan includes expansion of the Waukesha County Communications (WCC) Center. Just last month, Farrow announced that the Village of Menomonee Falls will be transitioning its 911 emergency dispatch services to the WCC in February, a move that is expected to save taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars. In order to accommodate space demands for new municipal partners, and to host emergency management simulations and trainings, the WCC floor and Emergency Operations Center will be expanded. 

      The 2017-2021 Capital Plan continues to maintain Waukesha County’s County Trunk Highway (CTH) infrastructure to promote public safety, support business growth and enhance economic development efforts. In this plan, $39.3 million or 40%, is dedicated to highway improvements.

      The Plan details how a section of North Avenue (CTH M) spanning between the City of Brookfield and the Village of Elm Grove will be widened to accommodate increasing traffic volumes. A three-mile segment between Calhoun Road and East County Line (124st Street) will be widened to four lanes, and a bridge over Underwood Creek will be replaced. This project combines two existing projects, allowing Waukesha County to leverage federal funding. In addition, less land will need to be acquired along this roadway.

      The Plan also includes improvements along two segments of Moorland Road (CTH O), the busiest in the County highway system. About 0.8 miles from I-94 to USH-18 (Bluemound Road) in the City of Brookfield and 1.4 miles from Beloit Rd to National Ave in the City of New Berlin will see improvements that include replacing existing pavement, reconfiguring intersections to improve safety, replacing older traffic signals, and adding sidewalks and storm water improvements. Federal funds are anticipated to offset most design and construction costs.

      In addition, the Plan highlights that construction of the Waukesha West Bypass will begin next year. The bypass will relieve congestion on nearby roads caused by continued growth and development in the area. The collaborative project shares costs between the Federal Government, State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the City of Waukesha and the County.

      Technology investments featured in the Plan include an update to the County Jail’s security system. This project is funding a study to determine options to upgrade recording and display equipment, which is scheduled to be replaced in 2019. 

      About the Waukesha County Budget

      The 2017 -2021 Waukesha County Capital Plan is part of the full Waukesha County Budget. The Plan shows how the County will maintain the buildings, infrastructure and properties that serve residents into the future. Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow will introduce the full 2017 Budget to the County Board in late September, with final passage expected in November.

      (WAUKESHA, WI) – Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow is reminding residents of the resources available during the Excessive Heat Warning in effect from noon Thursday through 7:00 pm Friday.                     

      “Excessive heat is the most frequent weather-related danger in southeast Wisconsin,” said Farrow. “For this reason, Waukesha County has safeguards in place to ensure that even our most vulnerable residents can stay safe and healthy.” 

      Plan Ahead

      Waukesha County residents are encouraged to plan ahead when extreme heat is on its way.

      • Fans and air conditioners should be tested before extreme weather hits. These items often sell out quickly and take longer for stores to restock than a heat wave lasts.
      • Stay hydrated throughout the day and limit physical activities in the heat.
      • Residents who do not have access to air conditioning may seek relief in a cooling center.

      Cooling Centers

      Dozens of cooling centers and places to cool off are located in Waukesha County, such as libraries, malls, or senior dining centers.

      • Members of the public may use Waukesha County ice arenas as cooling stations for free. The cost to skate is $6.50 for adults and $5.00 for seniors and children.
      • Naga-Waukee Park Ice arena will extend its open skate hours on Thursday from 12:30 pm to 4:00 pm. (2699 Golf Rd, Delafield). Naga-Waukee is open Thursday 8am-10pm and Friday 10am-6pm with various activities to watch throughout the day.
      • Eble Park Ice Arena (19400 W. Bluemound Rd. Brookfield) is open 9 am to 10 pm Thursday and Friday. Open skate is from noon to 2:00 pm.
      • Retzer Nature Center’s Environmental Learning Center (S14W28167 Madison St., Waukesha) will be open from 8 am to 4:30 pm.
      • Call 211 to locate a cooling center, and to see if transportation to the center is available.
      • Head to www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/preparedness/cooling-sites.pdf for a list of cooling centers.

      Requesting and Reporting Non-Emergency Information

      1. Residents should only call 911 if they are experiencing an emergency situation that poses an immediate risk to 
        • Call 911 for anyone suffering the following symptoms related to heat stroke: headache, red & dry skin without sweating, a body temperature near 103 degrees, nausea or vomiting, a rapid pulse, a declining alert status or loss of consciousness.
        • Pavement blow-outs are encouraged by extreme heat. Call 911 for any traffic hazards occurring on roadways or environmental dangers. 
        • Call the WCC Non-Emergency with requests for Police or Fire at 262-446-5070.
        • Residents in need of information about non-emergency heat-related resources are encouraged to call 211. This information includes where to find cooling centers and whether transportation to cooling centers is available.
        • Power outages that do not result in an emergency should be reported to WE Energies at 1-800-662-4797. Power outages that result in issues with medical equipment or produce smoking, arcing, or downed wires should be reported to 911. 

      Utility Service Disconnections

      Consumers are reminded that Wisconsin law prevents a utility from disconnecting occupied dwelling units when a heat advisory, heat warning, or heat emergency is in effect.

      • Utilities are required to make reasonable attempts to reconnect service that has been disconnected for nonpayment when there is a potential threat to health or life that results from the combination of the heat and loss of service.
      • The utility may require that an occupant produce a licensed physician's statement or notice from a public health, social service, or law enforcement official.
      • Contact the Public Service Commission Consumer Affairs at 1-800-225-7729 for more information about utility services.

      Wellness Checks

      Certain populations are more vulnerable to health risks related to extreme heat, such as adults over 65; children younger than five; people with health issues such as chronic diseases, or who take certain medications; and individuals who work outside.

      • Waukesha County’s Division of Health and Human Services is helping these populations by increasing wellness checks of current clients.
      • Residents can help these populations by checking in on elderly neighbors and by not leaving children or pets in hot cars.

      New Court Rules Effective July 1, 2016

      Attorneys and litigants must be aware of new filing rules and new mandatory eFiling rules

      (Waukesha-WI) The Wisconsin Supreme Court has adopted two new petitions creating new laws that take effect today, July 1, 2016. The first new law is designed to protect information in circuit court records.  The second new law pertains to mandatory eFiling in the circuit courts.

      The protected information law is intended to lessen the potential of identity theft. Documents filed on or after July 1, 2016 may not contain the following information:  1) Social Security numbers, 2) Driver license numbers, 3) Financial account numbers, 4) Tax Identification numbers, and 5) Passport numbers.  

      If these numbers are not needed for court proceedings, filers may simply leave them out or redact them (black them out) from the documents filed.  If this information is needed for court proceedings, it must be filed on a Confidential Disclosure of Protected Information form.

      The protected information law applies to all court cases, including confidential cases such as juvenile and guardianship matters.  If a filer fails to redact protected information, the court may order the filer to submit new documents and pay any costs incurred by other parties.  Visit http://www.wicourts.gov/services/attorney/redact.htm to find the new statute, forms, frequently asked questions, and more.

      Many new rules regarding the new eFiling law will take effect on July 1st. eFiling will become mandatory on a county-by-county and case type-by-case type basis with statewide implementation targeted to be completed by 2019.  It is anticipated that Waukesha County will introduce mandatory eFiling for Civil, Small Claims, Family and Paternity cases in November 2016.    

      Voluntary eFiling is currently available in Waukesha County Circuit Courts and all filers are encouraged to begin using the eFiling system now rather than waiting for it to become mandatory.  Visit www.wicourts.gov/efile for more in-depth information about what eFiling rule changes become effective July 1st  and to learn more about training opportunities available to court users.

      COUNTY EXECUTIVE FARROW AND COUNTY BOARD CHAIRMAN DECKER SUPPORT WAUKESHA’S LAKE MICHIGAN WATER DIVERSION APPLICATION

      (WAUKESHA, WI)…Today, Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow and County Board Chairman Paul Decker testified at Carroll University in strong support of the City of Waukesha’s application to divert Lake Michigan water at a public hearing held by the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Water Resources Regional Body and Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Council members.

      “Thirteen years of sound research led by the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission has gone into developing a sustainable water supply plan for all of southeastern Wisconsin.  The best and brightest water utility professionals from around the state, including representatives from the City of Milwaukee, endorsed the Regional Water Supply Plan that embraces the City of Waukesha accessing Lake Michigan water,” Farrow said. “Today we stand in proud support of moving an important part of that plan forward by supporting the City of Waukesha’s application to use and return Lake Michigan water.”    

      The Waukesha County Board adopted the Regional Water Supply Plan and supported contributing over $200,000 toward the detailed research as a refinement to its own Comprehensive Development Plan.  Since the plan’s approval, the City of Waukesha began the application process to divert Lake Michigan water as outlined by the terms of the Great Lakes Water Compact.  Late last year, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources determined the City of Waukesha had met all the Compact requirements. 

      “The conversion by the City of Waukesha to a Lake Michigan source of water with return flow is grounded in years of research, sound science and responsible land use planning.  We encourage the Regional Body to consider this information in developing its Declaration of Finding and encourage the Governors’ Compact Council to support the City of Waukesha application,” Decker concluded.

This free event features hot air balloon and helicopter rides, and Radio Controlled (or RC) aircraft demonstrations to entertain everyone with another side of aviation.

      There is a new email scam going around that is notifying the email recipient that they have a court appearance coming up, and that they need to open the attached forms, otherwise the Judge will enter a default judgment against them.

      These attachments are a virus!!  Do not click on or try to open attachments from someone that you do not know.

      As a reminder, the court system will not communicate or send out court documents via email.
