Village President John Stalewski 

A Message from the Village President

Welcome to the Village of West Milwaukee. I am honored to be elected to serve as your Village President. I have been a Village Trustee since 2009, and prior to that served on the Village Plan Commission.

The accomplishments with the redevelopment on Miller Park Way and other positives in the Village all come from the cooperative effort of our staff, Village Board, and the citizen commissioners who serve on our Plan Commission and West Milwaukee Community Development Authority (WMCDA).  These commission and committee appointments, and others, are a vital component of local governance.  If you are curious about becoming a part of the process please give me a call.

The Village of West Milwaukee is a safe, walkable community located in the heart of Milwaukee County. With pleasant neighborhoods, schools, churches, and green spaces balanced by commercial and industrial employment, and an incredible commercial shopping and dining district on Miller Park Way.

The location of our Village really is a key factor in the desire to be in our Village. We are located near  the geographical center of Milwaukee County which offers outstanding convenience for residents, businesses, and visitors.

West Milwaukee is a great place to live and do business. We welcome visitors to come and see what we are all about.

John Stalewski

Message from the Village Administrator

It is my pleasure to serve as the appointed Administrator for the Village of West Milwaukee. I was born and raised in the Village and attended West Milwaukee High School (now West Milwaukee Intermediate School). I graduated from Central Texas College with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and then received my Master of Public Administration from Marist College. I started my career with West Milwaukee in 2001 in the Police dispatch center and eventually was appointed to my current position. The Village has a very dedicated team that consists of the Board, Village Staff, contract professionals and community leaders that guide the Village in a positive direction. It is a privilege to be part of this team and community.
