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 Police Department 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 a.m. to 6 a.m. 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.
Parking permits are available for $30 per quarter or $108 per year.


Quarters run as follows:
Quarter 1: January 1 – March 31
Quarter 2: April 1 – June 30
Quarter 3: July 1 – September 30
Quarter 4: October 1 – December 31


Unfortunately, at this time our permits may not be prorated to lesser amounts.

All cars are required to park on alternate sides odd and even depending on the date of enforcement hours.

The restrictions are between 2 a.m. to 6 a.m; ensure your car is on the side of the street in the morning that coincides with the date. Example: If you are parking a vehicle during the hours of 2 a.m. to 6:00 a.m and it is January 14th, then you will want to be parked on the even side of the roadway.

As a reminder, parking permits are not valid for parking in municipal lots, they are only for street parking. If you are parking your vehicle in a municipal lot, you must leave a message on the overnight parking line at 262-691-5677.

If visitors need to park on the street, call the overnight park line at 262-691-5677. Please leave the license plate, description of the car and the address it will be parked in front of. Visitors are allowed three (3) overnight parks per month before the ordinance requires a parking permit be purchased.
