DINE AROUND THE WORLD & SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY 

West Allis Downtown, our business improvement district (BID), is putting on another Food Crawl! Take your tastebuds on a trip 'around the world,’ Wednesday, Nov. 17, from 5 - 8 p.m. Tickets must be purchased in advance by midnight on Sunday, Nov. 14, and only a limited number are available. Select either $20 for VIP or $15 for General Admission; your ticket includes one item from 12 participating businesses and a goody bag, with more information on the BID website at: www.westallisdowntown.com/dine-around-the-world. Tickets may be purchased online, or in-person at B&K Bar Supplies at 7100 W. Greenfield Ave.  

Don’t forget, the month of November is all about celebrating small businesses and shopping ‘small’! Shop at locally-owned West Allis businesses this holiday season to support our community and local economy. When you do so, save your receipts from Nov. 1 - 27 to redeem them for raffle tickets during Small Business Saturday, Nov. 27. That Saturday is the raffle at West Allis City Hall Centennial Plaza, from 1 - 3 p.m. 

Spend $10, and receive one ticket entry. The lucky raffle tickets pulled receive a West Allis gift basket, each valued over $100, from West Allis Downtown. To learn more, visit the BID’s Small Business Saturday page. 

LET IT SNOW – VOLUNTEERS NEEDED & CITY RETURNS TO ALTERNATE SIDE PARKING 

A reminder that the Snow Angels Program still needs volunteers to help shovel out neighbors in need this winter! Sign up now to be a volunteer, so we can match you with a nearby household before the flurries fly. Learn more, and sign up, here: www.westalliswi.gov/snowangels.  

Please also note the City of West Allis has returned to alternate odd-even side parking during snow emergencies. Please make note of these regulations so you know how to park when a snow emergency happens! To get notified of declared snow emergencies, opt-in for text or email notifications via the Public Works News Alerts, at www.westalliswi.gov/notifyme. 

Snow emergency parking rules trump all other overnight parking regulations during the emergency. By 10 p.m. on the day of a snow emergency, park your vehicle on the even-numbered side of the street (you will know by the address numbers) if it is an even-numbered calendar date, or on the odd-numbered side of the street if it is an odd-numbered calendar date. Continue to park on the side of the street designated by the snow emergency date through to 3 p.m. the following day. Snow emergency parking will expire at 3 p.m. the day following the emergency declaration. 

Please note in some areas, including certain streets and parking lots, there will be “TEMPORARY NO PARKING” signs you must follow. These are set into place to ensure the safety and movement of traffic. You also cannot park on designated emergency thoroughfares. The City of West Allis and the Department of Public Works want timely, cleared, safe city streets as much as you do. Having vehicles parked on one designated side will allow plows to more easily come through our streets. Please follow snow emergency parking regulations to help keep our streets clear this winter. Find more information on our Snow Emergency Parking page. Thank you!
