Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the Village of Pewaukee and the City of Pewaukee?
They are two different municipalities. The shared name can make it confusing sometimes. If you are a visitor, you can tell by addresses. If the address begins with a number like W240 N3065 Pewaukee Road, then you are in the city. If the address is a 3 or 4 digit address like 235 Hickory or 1275 Capitol Dr. you are in the village.
Where can I find the Village of Pewaukee ordinances or municipal codes?
Is the Village of Pewaukee PD a safe place to meet to buy/sell items?
Yes, our PD is a “safe place” to meet or sell items. We have an Internet Exchange location in our parking lot.
Does the Village have overnight parking restrictions?
Yes, we have year long parking restrictions. Vehicles or trailers may not be parked on village streets from 2:00AM to 6:00AM without a permit. Residents who need to park their cars on the street can do so by obtaining a parking permit in advance at the village police department for $11.00 per month.* All cars are required to park alternate sides odd and even depending on the date. The restrictions are from 2:00AM to 6:00AM, so you want to make sure your car is on the side of the street in the morning that coincides with the date. *Starting in 2018 we will no longer offer monthly parking permits, however, you will still have the option of purchasing quarterly parking permits.
But what if I have an out of town visitor?
If visitors need to park on the street, call the overnight park line at 262-691-5677. The following information is needed: license plate, description of the car and location. Visitors are allowed three overnight parks per month before the ordinance requires a parking permit be purchased.
