  3. June 2022 Police Activity Report by Neal Vohsen in Officer Dan Schroeder’s absence

           Total Calls for Service: 250                                                            Self-Initiated Calls:  7

         One of the vehicles at 9046 Kathleen was tagged

          The Prop P money is now at $58,069.66. 

The resident at 9112 Dana said the fireworks made his dog sick and he called the                    police.  The police said they couldn’t do anything.

Now each St. Louis County municipality must hire their own attorney to take on the             municipal cases only, i.e., code violations and speeding.  St. Louis County will still                 take care of felonies.  Since Wilbur Park has only needed to use a County attorney 3             times in the last 25 years, Wilbur Park would like to join other municipalities to split           the costs of an attorney.  Maybe we can talk to Grantwood Village, Bella Villa,                         Lakeshire, Marlborough?  Wilbur Park will need to update ordinances since we do                 not have all of the ordinances that St. Louis County has regarding assault, for                        example.

Bob will look into what Wilbur Park needs in regards to code violations, notices and              fines since we can no longer piggy back on the County’s ordinances.

4. Treasurer’s Report for May 2022 presented by JC Wheeler

Total Income                 $12066.09

Total Expenses              $10501.87

Net Income                      $1,564.22

       Sewer Lateral account has a balance of $5,885.84 with one pending job at 9143 Wayne         that is being grandfathered in under the old rules. The Escrow account is up and                   running and no one is currently on the Sewer Lateral Wait List.

Information on Flock Cameras:  cameras are $2500 plus $500 to install.  Footage is             stored for 30 days.  The cameras and software are on a 2-year lease and they are                     installed on poles.

5. Road & Building Commissioner’s Report presented by Mike Edwards.

        The construction on Weber will impact Rosemary.  There are flags in some of the                  yards on Rosemary.

       The resident at 4821 Autumn would like to install a wood fence.  The chainlink will               need to be removed before the new fencing can be installed.

        Need to review accessible parking signs every 2 years to verify if still needed and                   should     update language in ordinances to replace “handicapped” with “accessible”.

6. Waste Management Report by Heidi Warren

        Lots of calls received from Weber residents due to the construction.  Once trash cans            were put in front of the cones, Waste Management was able to access and pick up the           trash.  Other calls were due to resident’s putting trash out late.

7.  Village Clerk Report presented by Donna Gravatt.

       Talked to one resident regarding multiple garage sales.

8.  Chairman’s Report presented by Neal Vohsen.

        All topics were already discussed.

9. New Business

Resident attending meeting asked about liability on the Flock Cameras. Since Wilbur Park does  not have any property insurance, we would sign over control of the cameras to the County and they would maintain and carry any insurance required.

10.  Motion to adjourn made by JC and seconded by Neal.  Meeting adjourned at 8:41.
