PETITIONS AND COMPLAINTS
Jack Hauser, a resident of Kehrs Mill Trails and serving on the Board of
Adjustment, spoke regarding the construction on Kehrs Mill Road in front of
Marquette High School whereby the dividing lines appear to have washed off since
the time when they were temporarily striped.
Officer Taylor said he would speak with Paul Sneed, Project Manager.
Louis County Police Report:
Officer Thom Taylor of the St. Louis County Police handed out the
February Police Report.
The total amount collected for traffic fines and court costs for the
month of February 2009 was $18,315.75.
Mayor Douglass reported he has been busy getting information to the
residents regarding the change of schedule for the City’s trash pickup.
Mayor Douglass said he spoke with two banking companies this past month.
They have questions for which we’ll be responding this month.
of Occupancy: Alderperson Schultz stated he received a phone call from a
resident of Forest Hills Club Estates who witnessed several times moving vans
and/or trucks experiencing trouble navigating a turn in the Herworth cul-de-sac.
He went on to explain that when a home in Clarkson Valley changes owners,
neither the subdivision nor the city is made aware.
Nor can they find that information until it shows on the county DOR
records and that is only if one is looking to find the change of ownership. He feels it would be nice to know in advance when someone is
moving out or moving in. He then
spoke of a Clarkson Valley resident who sells real estate that might be able to
get that information electronically to us as soon as the house is sold.
Traffic Payments: Alderperson Meyer mentioned the court took 15% of its
payments online this past month. He
then inquired if the city was looking into changing the way it purchases
On Demand Storage: Alderperson Hethcote reported that she received a complaint
about a storage box container on the front lawn of a resident.
She asked what is Clarkson Valley’s criterion for having such unit –
especially if construction is ongoing?
Attorney, Patrick Butler, reported he received a phone call from Jerry
Robert’s attorney who stated that Midwest Music has an ambitious program with
four-to-five hundred students. They requested information on how to proceed with expanding
the current building?
