Dan did look into the reports of the two gentlemen from Weber Road confronting people in the area. In order to take any action, a someone would have to file charges.
4. Treasurer’s Report for December 2020 presented by JC Wheeler
December 2020 Profit & Loss Statement presented. Balance Sheet as of December 31, 2020.
The checking account balance at Busey is a bit high.
Wilbur Park now has four CD’s at $60,000 each with JP Morgan Chase and one CD at BMO Harris at $100,000.
Trying to find a financial institution where interest rate would be higher.
Once the Stalker radar equipment is ordered and delivered, Wilbur Park will look into additional equipment, i.e., license plate reader. This is coming from the Prop P money.
Sewer Lateral report shows property tax money, collected and uncollected. The uncollected should trickle in during January and February.
Wilbur Park has $1,683.00 in the bank for sewer lateral and an additional $9,711.54 with St. Louis County.
Some other municipalities don’t use St. Louis County for their sewer lateral repairs and put a cap on the amount of reimbursement on repairs. Not sure if Wilbur Park wants to do that. Some residents of Wilbur Park are opting to repair and pay for themselves in order to put house on the market quicker.
The 1099’s for the Wilbur Park trustees have been mailed.
Heidi needs more information on Wilbur Park vendors and who needs a 1099 for current taxes.
After tax season is over, Wilbur Park will need an audit before the financial report is due for the State of Missouri at the end of June 2021.
All trustees accepted the Financial report.
5. Road & Building Commissioner’s Report presented by Mike Edwards.
Only a couple of occupancy permit inspections this month.
The window replacement of 9039 Kathleen did not happen. This has been an ongoing issue. Officer Dan is going to assist Mike in obtaining access to the premises. Need to have access to inspect and get contractors in to make repairs. Wilbur Park will be assessing fines for these issues. If fines are not paid, a lien will be put on the property.
So far, the winter/snow season has been light so the General Maintenance on Roads will be assessed after snow season.
Fence between Wilbur Park and Dominos is down again. 9024 Kathleen has sold.
There will be some MSD construction in the near future. We need to take pictures to make sure properties are restored to pre-construction condition. Also need to look into easement rights and rights of property owners.
6 Waste Management Report presented by Heidi Warren.
Green bins are in low supply. The current bins have lasted several years. Time to purchase more.
7. Village Clerk Report presented by Donna Gravatt.
April 2021 Candidacy Filing has closed as of 5 pm today. Only the current trustees filed for candidacy. No formal election will be needed. I will finalize the paperwork needed for the Board of Election Commissioners.
8. Chairman’s Report presented by Neal Vohsen.
Neal accepted first round of Cares Act money, but declined the second round as Wilbur Park would not have enough expenses to qualify.
