Leisure Services Healthy Youth Inside & Out Day A Success!


The Village's Leisure Services Department teamed up with other local parks and recreation departments for the first Green Bay Area Healthy Youth Inside & Out Extravaganza on July 27, 2011.

The health initiative is designed to promote healthy habits in children.

For about three hours, children participated in a variety of lively activities leading up to the Jump with Jill rock concert. There were group games, kickboxing and dance lessons, and tours through Bellin Health's oversized inflatable heart. Children could enter the heart to see its parts and learn how to keep it healthy.

Jill Jane a nationally recognized rock star nutritionist, took the stage to make being healthy hip and fun. Jane tours the country under the name of 'Jump with Jill' and promotes healthy lifestyles. Through her performances, she teaches children about healthy eating habits, exercising, and overall ways of keeping bodies in shape.

Budget 2012 Scorecard Now Online Until July 15th

Make sure to “Tell Us What You Think” from July 1-15, 2011 the Village of Bellevue will seek advice on programs and services for the 2012 budget.

Funding for programs and services are largely based on available property tax revenue and service fees. Your voice is especially important this year since economic conditions and cuts in state shared revenues have made it difficult to fund existing services. Therefore, fewer dollars may be available to support existing services and programs. You can help make these spending decisions by telling us what kind of service level you want in our core services. You will be able to choose one of four levels of service for each category.

Service Level 1 = Total elimination of service and reduction in property taxes.
Service Level 2 = Partial reduction of service and slight reduction in property taxes.
Service Level 3 = Slight increase in property taxes, no change in service levels.
Service Level 4 = Increase in property taxes, enhanced service levels.

You’ll be able to choose the option that describes the service level you believe the village should provide.

To start the Budget Scorecard, go to the following link: http://www.villageofbellevue.org/budget2012.

(IMPORTANT: The Budget Advice Scorecard will be used as one tool in developing the budget. The Village Board will be looking at a variety of factors in budget decisions, and we want to provide interested individuals an opportunity to provide some input through the Budget Advice Scorecard. Your selections will not be reflected in your official tax bill, this is only a survey of residents’ preferences.)
