New Overnight Parking Procedure:

The Whitefish Bay Police Department began using a new overnight parking system March 31st. The link for the website to request overnight parking permission can be located at  https://parking.wfbvillage.org/ or in the  Parking Permits section of the  Village Website. We will no longer accept overnight parking permission by telephone. A maximum 15 nights permission per vehicle are allowed annually at no cost. If you require more than 15 nights, monthly parking permits can be purchased.

The new system allows monthly parking permits to be purchased online rather than coming to the Police Department during normal business hours. Permit sales for the next month will be allowed starting at 5 AM on the last day of the current month. Monthly permits can still be purchased at the station (currently housed in the Public Works Department at 155 W. Fairmount Ave.) from 8:00am to 4:30pm.

Requests for overnight parking permission must be made prior to 3 a.m. of the current day. No parking permission will be granted during a declared Snow Emergency. As a reminder, all vehicles parked on the street must be moved at least once every 24 hours, regardless of any permission granted or parking permit held.

"L" shaped marks indicate that the raised portion of the sidewalk will be ground down to minimize tripping hazards. A white line parallel to a joint abutting a white circle indicates a saw cut will be used to smooth the walk.

April is STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) Awareness Month. There's no avoiding the statistics: cases of gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis are at an all-time high. Left untreated, STDs can cause increased risk of giving or getting HIV, long-term pelvic and/or abdominal pain, and inability to get pregnant, or pregnancy complications. How can you protect yourself?
  • Vaccinating- Vaccines are safe, effective. vaccines are available for hepatitis B and HPV. Ask your doctor whether these are right for you.
  • Reducing number of sex partners- Reducing your number of sex partners can decrease your risk for STDs. It is still important that you and your partner get tested, and that you share your test results with one another.
  • Condoms-Correct and consistent use of the male latex condom is highly effective in reducing STD transmission. Use a condom every time you have anal, vaginal, or oral sex.
  • Mutual Monogamy- Mutual monogamy means that you agree to be sexually active with only one person, who has agreed to be sexually active only with you.
  • Abstinence: The most reliable way to avoid infection is to not have sex.
If you are sexually active, you are at risk of infection, and testing is the only way to know if you have an STD. Many STDs are curable and all are treatable. If either you or your partner has an STD that can be cured, both of you need to start treatment immediately to avoid getting re-infected. Getting treated right away can also help avoid health problems down the road.
This year's STD Awareness Month theme is "Treat Me Right." The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourage you to ask your healthcare provider what you can do - and how you can work together - to ensure that you stay healthy. Some providers may not discuss sex or STD testing with you.  Bring it up if they don't. Arm yourself with the facts and know what you should expect.
Learn more about specific STDs at: https://www.cdc.gov/std/healthcomm/fact_sheets.htm
If you need to get tested, you can visit your primary care provider.
