The city will soon be welcoming a new member who will lead the Building and Zoning Dept.
 
On May 6th, 2013 the city passed Ord. 2841 and 2842 dealing with wood storage and open burning.
Be assured that the board made sure the recreational fire pit is NOT affected...(open burning is not the recreational fire pit, storage of wood is important to prevent Vermin[Rats,etc] from having a place to nest).
 
2841- a maximum of 3 cords of wood may be stored in the rear or side yard behind the building line of the premises. it must be neatly stacked and a minimum of 6 inches off the ground. a cord of wood is 4'ht x 8'L x 4'deep or 128 cubic feet. Logs, limbs or tree trunks greater than 8 inches in diameter are prohibited from outside storage.
 
2842- is being amended but basically states that open burning is prohibited unless in an appropriate container, appliance, or fireplace structure(fire pit) that is designed and intended to be used for the purpose of wood burning, and has a dimension no greater than sixteen (16) square ft. [average fire pit falls within these dimensions] and the burning will not be conducted within twenty-five (25) ft. of a structure, property line, or combustible material.
 
the property owner, tenant or other responsible adult shall constantly supervise the burning at all times.
 
when open burning creates an air pollution problem, a nuisance condition, fire hazard or when atmospheric conditions are unfavorable for burning or when a public air quality warning is posted, said burning shall immediately cease and the fire and embers extinguished.
 
bonfires for public or private events of for recreational purposes on public or private property shall only be allowed by special permit from the City of St. Ann and the appropriate fire district.

The Beautification Program

 

   LETTER FROM MAYOR

     We do have quite a few St. Ann Businesses that may be able to help, though these are not likely to be volunteer, just wanted to point out our St Ann Businesses. Link Here
 
 

 City Wide Exterior Maitenance Inspection Program

The inspections will begin the week of April 9, 2012 (after the election) and will continue indefinitely until all properties are evaluated. Our approach will be to target the most distressed areas first and gradually move into neighborhoods that appear to be the best maintained. Inspectors will have their own sector (north and south of the Rock Rd.) of inspection. They will each spend either two or three full days a week (depending on the alternating nature of the schedule) devoting their full time to performing and processing exterior property maintenance inspections from a street level of view. The remaining time will be used for scheduled housing inspections by appointment and for associated support activity.
At the six (6) month point in the program we will evaluate resident response, compliance statistics, number of summonses for non-compliance, court cases, resident requests for additional time or for assistance and the impact of the program on the larger community.
The following list identifies some of the expected conditions we will find when performing the inspection evaluations of individual properties:
• Junk, trash, debris, improper outside storage, etc.
• Derelict, unlicensed, inoperable and junk vehicles, trailers, etc.
• Vehicles/trailers parked on unpaved surface.
• Trash cans in front of building line, cans out on improper days, bulky trash, etc.


• Tall grass, weeds, uncultivated vegetation, dead trees, volunteer growth, etc.
• Exterior peeling paint on trim, siding, foundations, windows, doors, guttering, downspouts, shutters, appurtenances, garages, accessory structures, etc.
• Broken or missing exterior building elements inclusive of the previous list.
• Mildewed/extremely dirty exterior building surfaces, etc.
• Broken windows, glass-lites, missing glazing/glass in doors, screens, etc
• Inadequate roofing shingles, missing shingles, cupped shingles, etc.
• Illegal construction without a permit.
• Improper or deteriorated fences, sheds, accessory structures, pools, decks, etc.
• Broken, heaved, heavily raveled or otherwise deteriorated driveways, patios, flatwork, sidewalks, etc.
• Improper or inadequate electrical/gas installations.
• Commercial exteriors to include all the above as well as , signs, parking lots, lighting, exterior elements, fences, trash dumpsters/enclosures, etc.

This list should not be considered all inclusive but rather gives a perspective into the types of code violations typically encountered.
When a deficient property is identified, the inspector will send a repair notice to the property owner of record detailing the corrective action necessary, time to complete and a statement that non-compliance will result in the issuance of a court summons. Should the owner acknowledge the deficiencies and requests additional time to make repairs, the inspector will typically work with that individual to obtain compliance. No response within the allotted time or failure to make continuous progress generally results in a court summons.
As this program gets underway I ask for your patience and understanding. The mayor and board members will likely be asked by residents at some point for some helpful political intervention. I would repeat my request that everyone refrain from offering to give that “help”, otherwise we risk compromising the integrity of the entire program.
In addition, since the onset of our early spring, the inspectors will have to prioritize tall grass notices over exterior inspections until residents and property owners stay current with the cutting. The grass does not stop growing and we can’t let this problem get out of hand.

 

Many have dealt with driveway issues over the summer. Even my own driveway has been in need of repair due to tree root damage. But some of our residents have rock driveways. Bill has provided me with the Grandfather Clause for your viewing. Keep in mind if any change in ownership, or size or shape then the rock driveway is no longer valid. THIS IS ORDINANCE 1968 EFFECTIVE 8/4/97.

 

OCCUPANCY PERMITS MAY BE LOCATED UNDER 515.310 AND 515.070

HAD SOME RESIDENTS ASK ABOUT THE COLDWATER RELIEF TANK SO I THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE WHAT I LEARNED:

1. IT WILL HOLD 6.5 MILLION GALLONS
2. IT WAS ORIGINALLY SUPPOSE TO BE UNDERGROUND, HOWEVER WHEN THEY GOT BENEATH THE GROUND THEY FOUND THAT THE SYSTEMS WOULD NOT WORK TOGETHER PROPERLY SO THEY PUT TOGETHER A COMMITTEE TO COME UP WITH THIS PLAN
WHICH IS THAT IT WOULD BE BUILT SOME BELOW BUT MOSTLY ABOVE GROUND, AND MSD AGREED AS A RESULT TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE AN OFFICE BUILDING AS YOU SEE ATTACHED IN THE PIC.



Ameren and our Trees

 

FEDERAL REQ. MANDATE THEY TRIM EVERY 4 YEARS, IN ABOUT 3 MONTHS WE ARE ON SCHEDULE TO DO SO. AN EASY WAY FOR US TO REMEMBER THIS IS EITHER THE YEAR OF THE SUMMER OLYMPICS OR THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION YEAR-WE GET TRIMMED.

 

After speaking with a representative of Ameren today to get the information I needed to answer many of the questions the residents have about the Tree Service Dept of Ameren. I find that the best way to answer most of the questions, is to refer to Ameren's Site itself. So below find a series of links that should help answer most of those questions. Bruce will also be stopping by sometime next week to follow up and provide me with some phamplets. So if anyone would like some please feel free to give me a ring at 314-517-2378. Ultimately maintaining our properties is the responsibility of the home/business owners, but if it's near a powerline...CALL AMEREN 1ST.

thanx

Who Prunes? We Do 
 

Why Can’t Landowners Prune Trees Within The Right-Of-Way or Easement?
While it might seem logical, there are good reasons why this cannot be permitted. Under some conditions, trees that grow too closely to transmission lines can conduct electricity. Contact is not necessary for electricity to arc or “jump” from transmission lines to trees. If electricity flows through a tree, anyone in the area of the energized tree could experience serious injuries or even loss of life.
 
This is why federal requirements specify that only qualified line-clearance tree contractors are allowed to work within 20 feet 5 inches of our higher voltage lines.
 
Never prune vegetation near power lines!
