    ELECTION UPDATES: Absentee Voting & New Polling Place Location

    Dear Village Residents,

    We have received several absentee ballot and Election Day questions which we hope to answer and reassure you that the Village of Chenequa is prepared and moving forward for Election Day.

    First, the Village has not run out of “envelopes”. Rest assured if you have requested an absentee ballot by mail one will be sent to you within 24 hours. However, due to the overload of absentee ballots going through United States Postal Services, we would recommend returning them in person by dropping them into the secure after hours drop off box at the front entrance of the Village Hall. Also, voters may still vote in person as usual in the Village Hall until Friday, April 3rd. We have taken the necessary precautions to continue this process.

    Election Day – For the safety of our poll workers and village residents, the polling place has been moved to the Village Public Works Building (next door), 31197 W County Rd K. There will be two options: drive-thru or walk-in. Chief Dan Neumer will be your greeter that day to guide you through the process. Our Chief Inspectors and Poll Workers will assist you to ensure every ballot counts. Please feel free to bring your own pen to the polls, otherwise, one will be provided.

    Thank you for your understanding in the change of venue. The change was made to assure the health and safety of our residents and poll workers.

    Sincerely,

    Pamela Ann Little
    Village Clerk/Treasurer

    9-1-1 IMPLEMENTS NEW PROCEDURES TO ACCOMMODATE COVID-19 EMERGENCY RESPONSE

    WAUKESHA COUNTY 9-1-1 IMPLEMENTS NEW PROCEDURES TO ACCOMMODATE COVID-19 EMERGENCY RESPONSE

    (WAUKESHA, WI) – The Waukesha County Communications (WCC) Center is working with Public Health officials and the 9-1-1 Medical Director to implement additional screening tools during call-taking procedures to obtain specific information concerning the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. These efforts are in place to mitigate first responder exposure and provide efficient emergency services to Waukesha County residents.

    WCC currently utilizes the International Academy of Emergency Dispatch (IAED) Emergency Medical Dispatch protocol for all medical call-taking. Now, WCC will also implement the Emerging Infectious Disease Surveillance (EIDS) tool on every call for service so call-takers can ask two additional questions to identify potential COVID-19 symptoms, as well as whether the patient has had direct close contact with someone diagnosed, as identified by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

    Additional measures have been taken in an effort to protect staff, as essential employees, during the COVID-19 outbreak. The WCC is closed to outside visitors until further notice. All group meetings, trainings, visits, tours, and sit-ins have been indefinitely suspended. We will continue to take all necessary precautions to protect our essential communications staff.

    If you have any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 we strongly advise individuals and employees to stay home to limit the spread of the virus.

    • Call 911 for emergencies that pose immediate risks to health, life, property, or environment
    • Visit waukeshacounty.gov/COVID19 for local public health information on COVID-19
    • Call 211 for information for COVID-19 questions about non-serious symptoms
    • Call WCC Non-Emergency at 262-446-5070 with non-emergent requests for Police/Fire

    The Waukesha County Communications center remains responsive to implementing best practice during this pandemic and remains in constant contact with the County Executive’s Office and Department of Public Health as information continues to develop.

    About the Waukesha County Communications Center

    The Waukesha County Communications Center (WCC) is the largest Public Service Answering Point (PSAP) in Waukesha County.
