City of West Bend Propels Forward

West Bend, Wis. (April 23, 2020): Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of West Bend has taken a proactive approach to enforcing public health guidelines while continuing to meet the needs of residential and business communities. City Hall has remained open, offering in-person and online services. Parks and trails have also continued to serve as safe spaces for individuals looking to exercise and partake in essential activities. To protect the public and staff, there are many additional safety measures in place throughout City facilities, including increased hand sanitizer, safety signage, social distancing markers, and plexi-glass dividers at service desks.

“Our City team has done an extraordinary job enabling the City of West Bend to function at full capacity throughout this challenging time,” said City Administrator Jay Shambeau. “We’ve adjusted the way we perform our work to continue to offer all of the services City residents and businesses rely on, while becoming safer and socially distanced at the same time.”

On Monday, April 27, the following additional City of West Bend services will be offered:

  • West Bend Community Memorial Library curbside pickup
  • Public Works drop-off yard and permit sticker sales
  • Access to tennis and pickleball courts
While remaining open, West Bend has complied with the Safer at Home Executive Orders throughout all departments and is actively preparing for the Badger Bounce Back plan. “West Bend takes great pride in being a business-friendly community and we’re committed to supporting businesses throughout this process,” said Mayor Christophe E. Jenkins. “We’re actively working with businesses to propel them forward.”

The Police Department has worked with citizens and businesses to educate them on the Safer at Home Order and to seek their voluntary compliance. West Bend businesses have been directed to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) for clarification and questions on compliance regarding the State’s Emergency Health Orders. In a number of cases, WEDC was able to guide businesses to remain open in compliance with the orders. The City is grateful for the understanding and support that citizens and businesses have shown.

Business owners who have specific questions or concerns regarding the Safer at Home Order may contact WEDC. Residents may contact their state legislators.
