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.

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.

Talked to one resident regarding multiple garage sales.
8. Chairman’s Report presented by Neal Vohsen.

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.
