Street Committee Intro for Residents
Today my letters went out to our Street Committee
These residents were put together to assist the Board of Alderman in making decisions on how we will fix and repair
and replace our city streets. We meet for the 1st time on April 23rd.
We estimate the total cost to fix, repair and maintain
our city streets, sidewalks and trees to be about 1.3 Million dollars a year. Repairs necessary for the next 15 YRs and maintenance
They will be tasked with reviewing the City Budget, Staffing, Expenses, Services, etc. to represent you
the citizens as a sub type committee of the Board of Alderman, so that we can get additional insight to your needs and preferences
for fixing these streets. We have done this because 2 Street Props have failed over the last 8 years and basically the city
only has $200,000.00/Yr currently to dedicate to street repairs.
I do take some blame for the 1st prop failing. It
was a personal property tax and in my opinion at the time with the many foreclosures occurring 2008-2010 that this prop would
not raise sufficient funds. So i was amongst those residents fighting against that prop in 2011.
What I would like
from all of you is your opinion's, frustrations, idea's etc. that I can present to this committee on your behalf, so they
understand where you want the direction of the Streets to go.
You may stay informed on the process on this page of my
website attached here:
We have exhausted all but one Federal
Grant and the one left will be applied for within the next 2 years.
We used Federal Grants to Renovate:
Ashby Rd Bridge - 2011
Breckenridge - 2012/13ish
Old St Charles Rock Road - 2019
the next and Last available Federal Grant to apply for is for
These were all typically Million Dollar streets
which the Federal Grant pays for 80% of, leaving the city to pay it's 200,000.00.
Also with $150,000. unused in St
Louis County's CBD Grant by homeowner's where we dedicated the money for the last 7 years, we have
redirected those dollars
for the renovation of St Shawn, St Linus, St Matthias, St Leonard over the next 4 years. No worries the $150,000 is still
available and if the monies get used up we can redirect back to homeowners yearly.

Aug 2017 Prop that Failed http://nocofoshojrvbc.tripod.com/amypoelker/id94.html
Alderman Ward 2
In 2017 Budgeting the BOA, altered the departments of Code Enforcement, Parks and Streets.
We moved the Supervision
of the Parks Dept. (Outside Maintenance People) under the Street Dept. this change allows use of additional labor as needed
during non peak Park times Ex. 9 Trees were removed from the cities tree list since January as a result. And additional labor
to assist with Street needs. Code Enforcement will be a separate dept with its own supervisor. One inspector will do
Occupancy, One inspector will do code enforcement and the supervisor will manage and assist where needed with both.
