  Safety comes first at Shoreline Metro
For some living in Sheboygan and the surrounding area, Shoreline Metro might not be a household name. For others, they see or use our buses and think nothing more than an affordable and reliable ride to work, to school or to appointments. But to most, safety is merely something understood or less...not even thought about.

Composting efforts by Sustainable Sheboygan Task Force
The Sustainable Sheboygan Task Force has been promoting composting efforts during the last 18 months. More than 230 people saw composting presentations last summer in Fountain Park. Citizens not able to compost are encouraged to use their garbage disposals instead of tossing it in the garbage can. Garbage disposal waste helps Sheboygan's waste water treatment plant process waste water because organic matter (plant scraps, outdated and/or old food) contains helpful bacteria for waste digestion. Keeping this organic matter out of your garbage also saves on the city's landfill fees. For information on composting, please visit www.sustainsheboygan.com

Mayor's Medal of Bravery presentation
Mayor Mike Vandersteen  recognized three individuals who came to the rescue of an individual who was drowning in the YMCA Pool. They were presented with the Mayor's Medal of Bravery at a brief ceremony during the City Council Meeting on Monday, February 20.
