    Waukesha County Land Resources Division Launches Land Information Systems Hub

    WAUKESHA COUNTY PARKS AND LAND USE LAUNCHES NEW LAND INFORMATION SYSTEMS HUB

    (Waukesha, WI) – Waukesha County Department of Parks and Land Use is pleased to announce the launch of the Land Resources Division’s new Land Information Systems Hub. The hub site enables the public to easily access various mapping applications, databases and other County information online. The hub will assist residents and businesses with planning, research, site selections, spatial analysis and land records.

    “This new hub site conveniently connects users, in a variety of interest areas, to geographic information, data and other mapping applications,” said Director of Parks and Land Use Dale Shaver. “It’s also a great tool for exploring and discovering Waukesha County.”

    The Land Information Systems Hub features a collection of map-related applications built using ArcGIS Online that allow users the ability to explore and acquire GIS data. Some of these focused applications include road construction projects, home building resources, real estate purchasing and environmental conservation volunteer opportunities.

    Several of the applications link to other internal County systems and databases to enable easier access to information and data. There are also story maps and dashboards describing various County projects, as well as an interactive map with links to surrounding county GIS systems.

    The hub will be updated as new applications are created, so users are encouraged to visit often. It can be accessed at https://www.waukeshacounty.gov/lis

    Residents Urged to 'Recycle Right' to Reduce Contamination

    WAUKESHA COUNTY RESIDENTS URGED TO ‘RECYCLE RIGHT’ IN CURBSIDE BINS TO REDUCE CONTAMINATION

    (Waukesha, WI) – In an effort to increase recycling rates and reduce contamination, Waukesha County officials are encouraging residents to “Recycle Right” by refreshing their recycling knowledge and ensure only acceptable, loose recyclables are put in curbside containers.

    “Keeping non-recyclable garbage and dangerous items out of curbside recycling containers increases the efficiency in our recycling facility,” said Analiese Smith, Recycling and Solid Waste Supervisor for Waukesha County. “Contamination is simply not safe for our facility workers and costs taxpayers money by increasing equipment repairs and landfill disposal costs.”

    Residents can review the ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ of recycling at home with the County’s online Curbside Recycling Guide in English or Spanish at www.waukeshacounty.gov/curbsiderecycling. The up-to-date information will help residents get the right items in their curbside bins and eliminate unacceptable items, such as plastic bags and bagged recyclables, scrap metal and propane tanks. The facility hopes that re-education of recycling standards will have positive impacts for municipalities and improve the economic and environmental sustainability of the recycling program.

    For more information about recycling or the Joint Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), visit www.waukeshacounty.gov/recycling, call 262-896-8300 or follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

    About the MRF

    The joint City of Milwaukee and Waukesha County recycling program and MRF operations are built on intergovernmental cooperation and public-private partnerships. The MRF sorts and processes recyclables from approximately 300,000 households, from Waukesha County’s participating communities and the City of Milwaukee. The MRF processes 35 tons of recyclables per hour, or more than 70,000 tons of recyclables per year.

    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. WCC answers 9-1-1 calls for the County, most non-emergency calls, and provides dispatch services for 31 of Waukesha County’s 37 municipalities.
