Kletzsch Park Fish Passage & Improved River Access 

Milwaukee County Parks, in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, is exploring ideas for providing fish passage around the Kletzsch Park dam. The proposed fish passage will be designed to allow native fish species such as northern pike and lake sturgeon to move upstream.

Additionally, the popular viewing area along the Milwaukee River Parkway will be enhanced with an overlook, a portage for paddlers, an accessible walkway to the river, and an accessible fishing platform at the shoreline.

We invite you to attend a public information meeting to learn more about this proposal.

Christmas Tree

Place bare trees out with your trash inside bins or next to it on your regular collection day. Trees longer than 6 feet must be cut in half. The last pick up day will be February 1, 2019. Bags, tree covers, lights and ornaments must be removed from trees before placing them next to your garbage. Please keep the trees clear of snow banks.

Snowy Sidewalk

Snow & Ice Sidewalk Removal

All property owners are reminded that Glendale City Ordinance requires all public sidewalks and curb ramps to be kept clear of snow and ice. Sidewalks and curb ramps must be clear of all snow and ice within 24 hours from the time snow ceases to accumulate. 

After each inclement weather event, the City will inspect all sidewalks and curb ramps to ensure they are safely passable. If a sidewalk or curb ramp is not safely passable, a notice may be posted or otherwise placed at the property indicating the need to comply with the snow and ice removal requirement within a specified time. 

Upon re-inspection, any sidewalk or curb ramp not properly cleared will be cleared by the City with all costs and expenses, including administrative fees and/or ice and salt/sand costs, charged to the property owner or manager as a special assessment. 

Residents are also asked to help keep area fire hydrants cleared of snow to allow easy access in case of a fire.

Snow Plow

Snow Removal Procedures

Based upon the expected snowfall this season, we wish to remind you of the City's long-standing snow removal and salting policy. 

Normally, the City does not plow streets unless the total accumulation of snow is 3 or more inches. Anything less is typically covered by salting operations.

Salting operations commence generally at the request of the Police Department or at the determination of the Public Works Director based upon weather conditions. 

Major thoroughfares have first priority. The City does not have a "bare street" program for residential areas. In other words, for residential streets, salting is typically reserved for intersections, hills, mid-blocks and curves roadways.

As much as many people would like, it is impossible for the City to schedule snow removal times to coincide with their respective snow removal from their driveways. Plowing streets inevitably will put snow on property owner's driveway approaches. There is no other way to plow snow.

As a reminder, the City does not plow or maintain County or State highways located within Glendale.
