WELCOME Winter decided to come a little early this year so it’s a good time to review the Recreator for fun and/or educational activities to keep your motor running. It’s not enjoyable being locked up in the house watching the same television programs or playing the same games over and over and gaining weight. I challenge you to try something new!

AFFILIATIONS

The Greenfield Park and Recreation Board is excited with the programming our creative and knowledgeable Park and Recreation Staff are offering this Winter. We are looking forward to having you come play, work out and/or discover a new talent with us!

-Denise Collins, Greenfield Parks & Recreation, Board Chair

GOOD TO KNOW BEFORE YOU ENROLL WHAT DO THESE SYMBOLS MEAN? NEW! First Time Offered Give it a try!

Register First

All persons are required to register PRIOR to participation in ANY program. Registrations and fees cannot be handled at the sites by instructors or any staff members. Please be prepared to show your receipt at the first class session. Instructors have the authority to disallow participation until proof is given. Registration Information (page 53) Registration Forms (pages 56-57)

Ages Indicated A Cooperative Program Agreement with other local recreation departments or agencies.

“Time Out” Dates This is the date our staff checks class enrollment status. If the minimum enrollment has not been met, the class may be canceled. Yes, you can register in-person or by fax after the “Time Out” date if openings exist. To check class status call (414) 329-5370 (M-F 8 AM-5 PM). Remember to bring your receipt to first class for verification.

Early Bird Discount Register early and save!

Children must be the age indicated on or before the FIRST class session.

Self-care

In classes where caregivers are not required, children must be able to provide self-care in a group setting (ie: able to wash hands and use restroom facilities without assistance).

Starting & Ending Class Times

Our instructors need time to open facilities and prepare for your class. Please provide proper supervision as children “dropped off” before classes start will not be supervised by our staff. Instructors will call their class and take attendance. Parents should wait until this has taken place before leaving. Classes will end as scheduled. Instructors are either preparing for the next class or closing the facility; your promptness in picking up your child is necessary. Please do not arrive prior to 10 minutes before the start of your class as the locker rooms or class room may not be open before this time. If your program involves use of locker rooms, plan to depart no later than 10 minutes after the scheduled conclusion of your program.

Waiting Areas T-Shirt This program includes a t-shirt. Pick your shirt size when registering

Most facilities have a designated spot where parents may wait during classes. Please help us keep the privilege of use of these facilities by not wandering around the buildings, no food or drink, and please keep siblings under supervision.

Makeups Special Refund Note Due to the purchasing of supplies, requests for refunds, credits or transfers after the “Time Out” date will only be honored if your spot can be filled.

4

GOOD TO KNOW

Classes missed for individual absences (ie: illness, vacations, etc.) are not “made up,” nor may participants attend classes other than the one they are registered for.

Spectators

One of the fundamental instructional program goals is to provide your child with a fun and positive learning opportunity with their peers while developing separation skills. Parents are welcome to observe the last scheduled class of the semester. (Exception: Swim lessons, spectators are permitted on the first day also.) For the best instructional atmosphere, observation of other class sessions is not permitted. Please feel free to discuss your child’s progress before and after class with the instructor. • Parent/Child Classes The spectator policy remains the same. Please make arrangements for siblings as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallway or locker room areas. • Adult Classes P  lease make arrangements for your children as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallways or locker room areas.

Round Up Sponsorships

The Department does not wish to exclude any City of Greenfield youth from participation on the basis of their ability to pay. There is an opportunity during registration to donate to help this cause by “rounding up” your registration fee to provide financial assistance for those unable to afford program fees for youth programs. A donation line is included on the registration form – you can donate any amount you see fit by adding the amount to your program fee total. Persons who feel they are unable to afford the cost of a youth activity may apply for a reduction of fees utilizing the “Round Up” Sponsorship donations which help fund these requests. City of Greenfield residents may apply for financial assistance by contacting the Parks & Recreation Department office at least one week prior to registering for youth programs.

WALK WITH CONFIDENCE

Vickie Strachota, Arthritis Foundation Certified Instructor Myth: Exercise puts me at risk of falling down. Fact: Regular exercise can build strength and stamina which prevents loss of bone mass and improves balance, thus actually reducing your risk of falling. Walk With Confidence is a structured social walking program that offers support to help participants develop successful exercise routines. Little by little, you will see improvements as you begin to strengthen muscle and improve balance–both important in staying active and avoiding falls. The program is designed for people with or without arthritis and can even be modified to meet the needs of individual participants so that each person can develop an exercise routine that fits their unique goals. All classes will start with a chair warm-up to increase range of motion, improve muscle tone, and promote cardiovascular health— then easing into walking at a comfortable pace. Please wear aerobic/fitness shoes, and bring your towel and a bottle of water. Canes, walkers, and fitness poles welcome. Enrollment: Min. 6 / Max 15.

AQUATICS AQUATIC GENERAL POLICIES What To Bring

Participants must furnish their own suits, locks, and towels. Patrons are allowed to bring towels & bags on the deck. The Department of Parks & Recreation and School Districts are not responsible for any lost or damaged articles. Showers must be taken before swimming. NO FOOD OR DRINKS are permitted. Contents of locker and lock must be removed after each class. Locker room attendants are NOT on duty... However, locker room checks will be made periodically by pool staff. Youth who are 5 years of age or older must use the gender appropriate locker room. Prior to the start of the class and once dismissed from the pool, participants are not supervised by the swim staff. Please plan accordingly.

American Red Cross

SWIMMING AND WATER SAFETY PROGRAM Our Learn to Swim program follows the principles and methods of the American Red Cross to combine the best in swim instruction with a strong emphasis on drowning prevention and water safety. Learn how to swim with the most trusted name in aquatic training. LEVELS: Please refer to the chart on page 19. Participants start at either Starfish or Level One and as their skill level progresses, they move up through the levels. At the conclusion of each semester, each child will be given a skill sheet indicating their progress. PROFESSIONAL STAFF: The Greenfield Parks & Recreation Department is a Licensed Training Provider of American Red Cross programs. Our staff members are trained and certified American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors (WSI) and American Red Cross Lifeguards (LG).

Pool Temperature & Maintenance Water and air temperature are regulated by the High School maintenance department, not the Department of Parks & Recreation. Due to limited capabilities of swimming pool equipment, the maintenance department is making every attempt to maintain a water temperature of 80°. This may be cold for some swimmers.

Pool Location & Locker Rooms • Whitnall High School Pool

Located at 5000 South 116th Street (116th Street between Layton & Edgerton Aves). Use the entrance to the far left when you face the building. Enter, turn to your right, and proceed down the hall to the locker rooms. The only pool entrance is through the locker rooms.

• Greenfield High School Pool

Located at 4800 S 60th Street (S 60th & Layton Ave.). Use door #11 located on the south side of the building. Upon entering, turn to your left to walk towards the pool doors. The locker room entrances are also to your left down a hallway. Please enter the pool from the locker rooms. The Greenfield High School Pool does offer a Family locker room.

Lesson Observation

Please be advised, once lessons start, only participants and staff may be in the pool area. Parents may observe on the first and last lesson only. Spectators are a distraction to the young swimmers.

SWIM PRE-TEST

• New to the swim instruction program? • Has it been a few years since the last lesson?

A Swim Pretest is an opportunity for: • One-on-one skill screening • Level placement • Introducing yourself and your child to the facility

Pre-registration required. Participants are taken on a first come, first served basis; however, if we have an idea of how many will be in attendance, staff can be scheduled accordingly to serve you better. Sorry, staff will not be able to handle registrations at the pre-test. Our swim pretest has been scheduled during our Open Swim (page 34), giving you the opportunity to stay with your child after and enjoy the water together at no charge.

AQUATICS Swimming & Water Safety Levels

The American Red Cross offers comprehensive course levels that teach your child how to swim skillfully and safely. Skills taught are progressive, so children advance upon completion of all the skills in the previous level. New to our program? Either enroll your child in Starfish (Ages 4-6) or Level One (Ages 6-9), or attend a swim pre-test session to determine which level is most appropriate for your child based upon their water skills. Levels

Requirements

Skills Taught

PARENT AND CHILD AQUATICS Parent/Child Swim

Ages 1-4 Years

Ratio 1:10

Each child must be accompanied by parent or caregiver

Parents and children learn together to increase a child’s comfort level in the water and build a foundation of basic skills, such as arm and leg movements and breath control. This level is fun-filled and helps introduce water safety concepts, encouraging a healthy recreational habit. If your child is not 100% toilet trained, they will need to wear a swim diaper under their swim suit. The water temperature is approximately 80 degrees, which may be cold for younger swimmers, so a long-sleeved swim/sun type top is recommended.

PRESCHOOL AQUATICS (AGES 4-6) Preschool Level 1 (Starfish) Ratio 1:6

Preschool Level 2 (Seahorse) Ratio 1:6

Preschool Level 3 (Goldfish)

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 6

Starfish orients children to the aquatic environment and helps them gain basic aquatic skills that are the foundation for the later levels. Front and back floats, glides, and leg and arm actions are taught. Age appropriate water safety topics are reviewed. Seahorse builds upon the Starfish skills to help children gain greater independence in their skills and develop more comfort in and around the water. Bobs, retrieving objects under water, floating and gliding independently, treading water, and combined arm-and-leg actions front and back are the focus. Goldfish further develops the Seahorse skills so children gain basic swimming propulsive skills. Floats and glides into a vertical position, rotary breathing, how to change direction while swimming, treading water, and independent swimming on front and back strokes are the primary focus.

LEARN-TO-SWIM (AGES 6-TEENS)

Ratio 1:8

Introduction to Water Skills Level 1 teaches basic personal water safety and skills to help children feel comfortable in the water while learning elementary aquatic skills. Age appropriate water safety topics are reviewed. Fundamental Aquatic Skills Level 2 gives participants success with fundamental skills such as floating and recovering to vertical position. Participants continue to explore simultaneous and alternating arm action on front and back.

Stroke Development Level 3 teaches the survival float, elementary backstroke, breaststroke, backstroke and coordination of front crawl. Participants are introduced to dolphin kick, swimming in deep water, and basic diving skills. Stroke Improvement Level 4 develops confidence in previously learned strokes and increases distance swimming. Backstroke and breaststroke are further developed. Participants are introduced to butterfly and taught sidestroke. Stroke Refinement Level 5 refines strokes learned in Level 4 and increases distances of swimming. Participants are also introduced to front and back flip turns.

Swimming and Skill Proficiency Level 6 refines the strokes so participants swim with ease, efficiency, power and smoothness over greater distances. It helps prepare for more advanced classes such as Lifeguarding and Competitive Swimming. This level is unique to Greenfield Parks & Recreation to keep kids swimming. Stroke refinements, junior lifeguarding skills, and fitness swimming are just some of the things this level can cover all based upon the interest of the class.

AQUATICS PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT Swimming is a recreational activity that will last a lifetime. Learning to swim happens with swim lessons and spending time in the water during Open Swim for water exploration and play. As a benefit of enrolling your children in the Greenfield Parks & Recreation Departments Learn to Swim program, you are automatically able to attend our Open Swim time at no additional cost during the dates of your class, by showing your Learn to Swim receipt at the door. This benefit is for both you and your child who is in lessons (other family members will be charged our regular admission). You and your child can come to the pool to have fun while providing time for them to practice and develop their skills.

Private Swim Lessons Adult & Youth (Ages 6+)

Private swim lessons are designed to help meet the needs of participants who are seeking more individualized instruction. Teens and adults seeking to improve their swim strokes are welcome. One of our swim instructors will be assigned to work one-on-one with you or your child to accomplish specific strokes or skills during the class. Note: After the “Time Out� date, due to the scheduling of staff, there are no credits or refunds. (*)Non-resident families who reside within or have children attending any Greenfield or Whitnall School District public school will be assessed at the resident rate. Classes will be canceled for insufficient enrollment after the Time Out Date, unless otherwise noted.

FITNESS | MARTIAL ARTS

LITTLE NINJAS (Ages 3-5 years) Little Ninjas is an easy-to understand class for the younger child to gain the benefits of Tae Kwon Do. There will be emphasis placed on the physical techniques so the participant’s body can begin growing with the movements and burn up energy. The very basics will be taught, with additions of important outside aspects for children such as stranger self-defense and lost- in-thestore safety. CHILDREN (Ages 6-12 years) Children’s Tae Kwon Do is great for development of self-discipline and physical fitness. Children who learn Tae Kwon Do also benefit from increased self-esteem, more confidence and assertiveness, more focus and concentration, better discipline and self-control, respect for authority, self-defense, and physical activity. Children who study this art will learn when it is okay to use it as the code. The martial artist forbids unfair assaults or unnecessary use of force, so it is for emergencies only. TEEN/ADULT (Ages 13+) Tae Kwon Do is great for mental, physical, and spiritual development. Become more flexible, agile, and physically stronger while increasing balance. For a Tae Kwon Do practitioner, their entire body is their weapon, defending easily against all aggressors with their hands, fists, elbows, knees, and feet. FAMILY (Youth (Ages 6+) to Adults) Tae Kwon Do is a wonderful activity to practice as a family! Parents will have a great time working out with their children in the same class. Tae Kwon Do has SO many benefits for both children AND adults that it makes it the perfect way to stay fit and have fun TOGETHER. For adults, TKD helps to increase flexibility, relieve stress, strengthen balance and learn life-saving self-defense. In children, TKD helps to improve confidence, increase focus, build stronger physical skills like balance, coordination and agility, in addition to building great goal setting skills. No matter the reason for practicing Tae Kwon Do initially, students of the art benefit physically, mentally and spiritually. Practice Tae Kwon Do together but feel the benefits as an individual!

GENERAL INFORMATION - LEGACY BRICKS As part of the City’s 50th Celebration Legacy Project in 2006, a fountain was placed in Bicentennial Park (51st & Layton, near the Law Enforcement Center, Fire Station and Library) as a centerpiece. Surrounding features include flag poles, benches, and a stone marker, all framed by a beautiful garden and landscaping. The outer area of the fountain is paved with bricks, providing a unique opportunity to make a lasting mark to:

• Commemorate your family’s place in Greenfield History • Remember a loved one • Honor a family member, friend or associate • Recognize an achievement • Celebrate a special occasion/event • Promote your business

The bricks are engraved using a laser process that will penetrate, melt and crystallize the clay brick, resulting in a permanent engraving. The money raised from this project will help fund numerous projects within the City of Greenfield Parks & Recreation Department. Orders are accepted throughout the year. Bricks are installed in either Spring or Fall. All contributions are tax deductible, pricing is subject to change.

Mayor’s Message Michael J. Neitzke, Mayor

Scan this QR code to link to the City website

Welcome to the Winter/Spring Edition of the GREENfield SHEET! It’s hard to believe that 2019 is soon to be behind us, as 2020 looms in the horizon. A lot of great things happened this year: the Vietnam Moving Wall visited; a successful Ethan’s 5k Run Against Addiction; record breaking attendance at our AMP events and Farmers’ Market; operational control of Kulwicki Park; further build-out of 84South and redevelopment throughout the City; infrastructure improvements by the City; County and State, acquisition of the former Turf Skateboard Park from the State of Wisconsin; great Car Show’s at Konkel and Kulwicki and much more. All of these things make Greenfield a Better Place. As we move into 2020, our intention is to continue enhancing the quality of life within our community. With some generous sponsorship from Dan Jansen Family Fest and TruStone Financial, as well as ingenuity by our Parks Department and DPW staff, we are excited to announce the Dan Jansen Family Fest Ice Rink at Konkel Park. This free outdoor skating rink helps Konkel Park become a year round place to be. Building upon our successes at The AMP events last year, the 2020 season promises to be even better. These events are possible because of wonderful public/private partnerships, donations, volunteers, generated income, and a great (small) staff to put it all together. The AMP’s success is truly a community effort. Special shoutouts go to Clement Manor for its sponsorship of Tuesday night concerts, and to Waterstone Bank, The Ridge Community Church, John Paul’s Buick GMC, Carrabbas, Partners of Greenfield Parks and Recreation, and MeJATC. Over at Kulwicki Park, we’re working closely with the Little League and Greater Greenfield Lion’s Club to make certain the Park shines like intended. The 2020 Arbor Day celebration will be held at Kulwicki. Speaking of trees, Greenfield is a National Arbor Day Tree City. Efforts are underway to become a Bird City, Bee City, and Monarch City. We’re looking for partners. If you can help please contact our Department of Neighborhood Services. Over a decade in the works, the site of the former Turf Skateboard Park has been acquired by the City. Often referred to as the ‘Lambeau Field’ of skateboarding, we’re working closely with the 27th Street Business Improvement District, Foundations, non-profits, educational groups, and the skateboard community to bring a great public skateboard park back to this sacred ground. 84South continues its final buildout on the corner with a Public Market concept being explored. While everything takes time and can change just like that, discussions with developers continue with regard to the former Stadium Interchange parcel at 894 & Loomis, the old Knights of Columbus parcel on 103rd and Oklahoma, and elsewhere. All told, 10’s of millions of dollars of investment is on the horizon. Greenfield continues to be an attractive community to invest in, and its showing. As you move about the City you’ll notice a number of road projects are wrapping up. One project that is expected to last through next summer is the replacement of the 68th Street bridge over I894. Additionally, the installation of traffic lights at 84th & Cold Spring has been delayed until next summer because of supplier backlogs and to save money by combining the installation with another project. While our Greenfield and Whitnall School Districts are always doing great things that should be applauded, a special congratulatory note to the 2019 Greenfield Youth Football Program 8th Grade team which won the 2019 All-American Youth Football League Division 2 Championship game - Great job! Have a great holiday season! -Mike Winter/Spring 2020 | Making Greenfield A Better Place

The City of Greenfield has partnered with SeeClickFix to announce a new platform (called “Greenfield Resolve It”) that will allow citizens to report quality-of-life issues and request City of Greenfield services. With free SeeClickFix mobile app and web tools, Greenfield citizens will now be able to provide department staff with pictures, videos, specific descriptions, and more — valuable information needed to get the job done efficiently. In addition, the SeeClickFix platform provides Greenfield officials with a centralized issue management system to manage issues from creation to resolution — engaging Greenfield citizens throughout the process. This partnership not only allows Greenfield citizens to report problems, but also to view, comment on, and vote to fix problems submitted by their neighbors. Citizens can even create their own “watch areas” to receive notifications about all the issues reported in their community, enabling them to follow the progress of all service requests — not just the ones they report. The Greenfield Resolve It mobile app is available for download on Android and iPhone. In addition to the mobile apps, citizens can send reports to the Greenfield’s website and seeclickfix.com.

About SeeClickFix SeeClickFix was founded in 2008 to empower citizens with tools to publicly document quality of life concerns in their neighborhoods. By radically improving the quantity and quality of this data, SeeClickFix was quickly adopted by local governments, who needed a better way to receive information from citizens. This exchange helped to build one of the largest neighborhood networks in the world — upon which public agencies and public citizens engage to improve communities. Today, SeeClickFix has official partnerships with hundreds of cities, engaging hundreds of thousands of citizens in the resolution of millions of issues. SeeClickFix has worked with government partners to develop municipal management tools on top of this citizen network. As SeeClickFix is adopted into the everyday lives of government users, the benefit of the engaged citizen base continues to grow.

CRIME PREVENTION

SNOW EMERGENCY

HOLIDAY SCAMS

The Greenfield Police Department offers many crime prevention and community outreach services. Dozens of useful links are available at the Police Department’s Community Service Page on the web at: http://www.greenfieldpolice.org/community/community.html. Community Service Officers are available to help in forming block watch groups and attending neighborhood meetings and community events. Contact our Community Service at (414) 761-5337.

When a Snow Emergency is declared, the City notifies the media outlets in the Milwaukee area. During a snow emergency, parking is completely prohibited on major streets and any cars found on these streets are cited and towed. Snow emergency streets include: 27th Street, 35th Street, 43rd Street, 51st Street, 60th Street, 68th Street, 76th Street, 84th Street, 92nd Street, 104th Street, 112th Street, 116th Street, 124th Street, Morgan Avenue, Howard Avenue, Cold Spring Road, Layton Avenue, Edgerton Avenue, Grange Avenue, Ramsey Avenue, College Avenue, Loomis Road, Forest Home Avenue, Beloit Road, and 31st Street between Edgerton Avenue and Grange Avenue.

Since it’s the holidays, the scammers are setting their sights on you to finance their New Year. They are hoping that your finances are tight enough that you would believe you are an instant winner of a contest you never entered and all you have to do is cash the check they sent you and wire it back to them to cover the taxes. Needless to say, it is a bad check and your bank will hold you responsible for cashing it. These notices will come in the mail, e-mail, or text messages and they may even be on letterhead and they will look legitimate. Do not fall for it!

AUTISM AND SPECIAL NEEDS REGISTRY The Greenfield Police Department has created an Autism and Special Needs Registry to assist Emergency Services and Families with individuals with autism and special needs during a crisis. To register, please go to the Police Department website at http:// www.ci.greenfield.wi.us//252/Police-Department and enter the Community Services Tab or stop at the police department for a registry form.

DON’T LEAVE YOUR CAR RUNNING With the cold weather, some people will warm their cars prior to beginning their journey and others will allow their cars to run when they make a quick stop. This is an easy target for car thieves. When you leave your car, turn it off , lock it up, and take your keys with you. Do not leave your car unattended when it is running.

BEFORE SENDING MONEY, DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR? • Are you sending money to claim a lottery prize? • Are you sending money to help someone get a large sum of money out of their country? • Are you sending money because a relative called from another state or country and told you that they need help? • Are you sending money because you were “guaranteed” a credit card or loan? • Are you sending money to someone you have not met personally? • Are you sending money to someone you’ve never met to pay for their trip to America? These are just some examples of scams being perpetrated using money transfers. If any of these sound like your situation, please call the Greenfield Police Department at (414) 761-5301 for advice.

COVER YOUR COUGH AND WASH YOUR HANDS! As cold and influenza season continues, it is important to remember that covering your cough or sneeze is the most important way you can prevent spreading illness to others. Thorough hand washing after coughing or sneezing is important to prevent contamination of shared surfaces such as doorknobs, since research indicates that bacteria and viruses may live for two hours or more on surfaces. To stop the spread of germs, you should: • Cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow. • You may also cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, throwing away the tissue after use. • Wash your hands. Keys to good hand washing include: • Wet hands under warm running water and apply soap. • While washing, pay extra attention to the front and back, between your fingers, around your wrists and under your nails. • The appropriate length of time to wash your hands is the time taken to sing “Happy Birthday” or the “A, B, C Song” (approximately 15-20 seconds). • Rinse your hands well under warm water • Dry your hands completely using paper towel, and use the paper towel to turn off the faucet. • Alcohol hand gels or sanitizers may also be used to clean your hands when soap and water are unavailable. The Greenfield Health Department wishes you health and safety this winter. By following the information presented above, you will increase your chances of being healthy during the winter months. For more information, contact the Greenfield Health Department at (414) 329-5275. The Greenfield Health Department is available on the internet at www.greenfieldwi.us.

COLD VS. FLU

CAR SEAT PROGRAM UPDATE

Flu and the common cold are both respiratory illnesses but they are caused by different viruses. Because these two types of illnesses have similar symptoms, it can be difficult to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone. In general, flu is worse than the common cold, and symptoms are more intense. Colds are usually milder than flu. People with colds are more likely to have a runny or stuffy nose. Colds generally do not result in serious health problems, such as pneumonia, bacterial infections, or hospitalizations. Do you know which symptoms are associated with the cold and which with the FLU?

Do you have questions about a child’s car seat? A Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician is available to answer your questions, provide education, and check to make sure your car seat is installed correctly. Appointments are required and take about 30 minutes. Call Greenfield Health Department at (414) 329-5275 or the Greenfield Fire Department at (414) 545-7946 to make an appointment.

Winter Car Seat Safety: Wearing heavy, bulky or puffy coats can make a child’s car seat less safe during winter time. It is important to keep children warm, but wearing a coat can create extra space in a car seat. This extra space can allow children to slip out of their car seat during an accident. Here are a few tips to help your child stay warm and safe while riding in the car. 1. Wear layers. Wisconsin’s temperatures can drop well below freezing tempera- tures in the winter, so it is important to bundle up. Children can wear a long sleeve shirt or onesie, warm pants, a sweatshirt, a hat, and a blanket wrapped around them or hung over the top of the car seat if using an infant carrier. The blanket can be wrapped over the car seat buckles once the child is inside the car to ensure a tight fitting car seat. 2. Bring a coat along. If you will be walk ing around outside for an extended period of time, it is always important to make sure that your child has enough layers to keep them warm. Although dressing in layers and bringing a blanket may be a great idea for moving your child from your home to your car, an extra coat may be needed for extended time outside. You can put the coat on in the warm car after the car ride and then bundle them up with a blanket to make sure they are well protected.

BABY BOXES

Election Inspectors to work at the polls for elections

Introducing “Badger Book” – ELECTRONIC POLL BOOKS We will start using electronic poll books “Badger Book” at select polling locations using a phased rollout beginning with the February 18, 2020 election. This change will be minimal to voters, as polling places using Badger Book will be set up the same as before. The biggest change voters will experience at their ward table during check-in on Election Day is that electronic poll books will replace the paper version, and voters will sign their names electronically. In 2017, Wisconsin Elections Commission staff developed an electronic poll book to be used in polling places in Wisconsin on Election Day. The “Badger Book” is an electronic poll book designed specifically for Wisconsin elections practices and statutes. The Badger Book is the only electronic poll book software created with direct WisVote integration. Badger Books do not use an internet connection. The Badger Book is primarily used to check in voters, process Election Day Registrations (EDRs), and record absentee ballots. The Badger Book maintains the voter number and count independent of poll worker input. Each process was chosen and designed based on feedback provided by clerks and poll workers from across the state. After Election Day, a data file generated from the Badger Book is used to upload election participation and Election Day Registration information into WisVote.

The Greenfield City Clerk’s office is looking for individuals who are interested in training to work as Election Inspectors at the polls for 2020 elections. Election Inspectors assist electors with voting and voter registration at the polls on election days. Election Inspectors must be available to work at the polls for some or all elections in 2020 from 6:30 a.m. until 8:15 p.m. Split shifts from 6:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. or 1:30 p.m.8:15 p.m. will be considered; full shifts will be filled first. Election officials earn $12 per hour and are required to attend training prior to working at the polls; training pay is $7.25 per hour. Interested and qualified? Please contact the City Clerk’s office at (414) 329-5219 or ClerkDept@greenfieldwi.us for an application, or for more information. Applications are also available on our website at www.ci.greenfield.wi.us. We are planning and scheduling now. Applications can be mailed, emailed, or returned in person. The City of Greenfield is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Qualifications: Election officials must meet the following criteria: (1) Be able to read, write, speak and understand the English language; (2) Communicate effectively; (3) Receive training; (4) Is not a candidate for any office to be voted on at an election at which they serve; (5) Is a qualified elector, a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years of age, and not disqualified from voting for any of the reasons described in §6.03, Wis.

2020 Census FAQ What is the census? The census is a count of every person who lives in the United States and its territories. It happens every 10 years. In early 2020, you will be asked to count everyone who lives in your home as of April 1. Responding to the 2020 Census is a chance to shape your future.

What’s in it for me?

Your responses inform where over $675 billion is distributed each year to communities nationwide for clinics, schools, roads, and more.

Census data gives community leaders vital information to make decisions about building community centers, opening businesses, and planning for the future.

Responding also fulfills your civic duty because it’s mandated by the U.S. Constitution. The United States has counted its population every 10 years since 1790.

Your responses are used to redraw legislative districts and determine the number of seats your state has in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Is my information safe?

What will I be asked?

Your responses to the 2020 Census are safe, secure, and protected by federal law. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics. They cannot be used against you by any government agency or court in any way—not by the FBI, not by the CIA, not by the DHS, and not by ICE.

You will be asked a few simple questions, like age, sex, and the number of people who live in your home, including children.

When can I respond to the census?

The census will never ask for Social Security numbers, bank or credit card numbers, money or donations, or anything related to political parties.

In early 2020, every household in America will receive a notice to complete the census online, by phone, or by mail. In May, the U.S. Census Bureau will begin following up in person with households that have yet to respond.

For more information, visit:

2020CENSUS.GOV D-FA-GP-EN-034

What won’t be asked?


A Recent Mover Count yourself at your new address if you moved in by April 1, 2020.

Completing Your Household’s Form When responding, count any children, including newborns, who usually live and sleep at your home-even if they’re not your own. If they split time evenly between two households, count them where they are on April 1, 2020.”

In general, you should count yourself where you live and sleep most of the time. But pay special attention if you are:

A Service Member If you don’t live in military barracks—and you aren’t deployed or stationed outside the United States— count yourself where you live and sleep most of the time, whether on or off base.

A College Student If you don’t live in a dorm, count yourself at your offcampus address—even if you go to your parents’ home for school breaks. This includes international students.

A Renter Count yourself where you live. Even though you don’t own the home, you need to participate. Don’t forget your family and roommates.

Count yourself in the right place.

FORESTRY Trees make our city safer, cleaner, healthier and trees are the only investment a city can make that actually increases in value over time. Buildings and street crumble with age while tree increase in value as they grow. Street trees (generally planted from 4 feet to 8 feet from curbs) provide many benefits. Trees provide so many benefits that they should always be considered as an urban area default street making feature. Trees are an indispensable component of good neighborhoods. Street trees soften hardscapes, buffer pedestrians from moving vehicles. They help to reduce traffic speeds, reduce the load on drainage infrastructure by absorbing precipitation, remove millions of tons of CO2 emissions annually, and extend pavement life with their shade. There even is compelling research that motorist road rage is less in green urban versus stark suburban areas. They increase property values. U.S. Forest Service economist Geoffrey Donovan and National Institute of Standards and Technology economist David Butry analyzed 2,608 single-family home sales in Portland, Ore., between July 1, 2006, and April 26, 2007. They discovered that homes with street trees sold for an average of $7,130 more than homes without street trees. The Forest Service also puts its findings in percentage terms, stating that healthy, mature trees add an average of 10 percent to a property’s value. Other studies point to a marked bump in real estate value when street trees are part of the mix: • Urban designer Dan Burden points to Realtor-based estimates of a $15,000 to $25,000 increase in home or business value when street trees are present. • A USDA report, “The State of California’s Street Trees,” called the effect of street trees on property values “ the single largest benefit in California, averaging $91.89 per tree and reflects higher median home sales prices in California.” The Tree Benefit Calculator allows anyone to make a simple estimation of the benefits individual streetside trees provide. This tool is based on i-Tree’s street tree assessment tool called STREETS. With inputs of location, species and tree size, users will get an understanding of the environmental and economic value trees provide on an annual basis. The Tree Benefit Calculator is intended to be simple and accessible. As such, this tool should be considered a starting point for understanding trees’ value in the community, rather than a scientific accounting of precise values. For more detailed information on urban and community forest assessments, visit the i-Tree website.
