Catalytic converter thefts are high. The Stalker Reader board has been delivered and is getting graphics now. We should wait to purchase license plate reader. There are other options available that can track all over the county.
Mike has had reports of lots of people coming and going at 9015 Philo and they have been disregarding the No Parking signs. The street seems to be used as a drag strip.
There is a residence whose car repairs are blocking the sidewalks.
Wilbur Park needs to reassess the parking areas to make sure emergency vehicles have clearance. Talked about speed bumps, but emergency vehicles and snow removal vehicles don’t like them.
4. Treasurer’s Report for January 2021 presented by JC Wheeler
February 2021 Profit & Loss Statement presented. Balance Sheet as of February 28, 2021.
The balance on the Sewer Lateral Program is $11,350.55 with a pending amount of $1,689.00 for 9033 Kathleen with gives us a balance of $9,661.55. That is 96.26% of fees collected from 2020 property taxes.
The balance of the Prop P funds after purchasing the Stalker Radar unit is $54,149.92.
Lots of discussion about the sewer lateral program, i.e., balance, cost for each homeowner, fees for Wilbur Park, maximums, and down payments for residents. The Board discussed if the program needed to be changed, if we still needed St. Louis County to administer and how to collect deposits if the program warrants.
All trustees accepted the Financial report.
5. Road & Building Commissioner’s Report presented by Mike Edwards.
Mike has gone around and sprayed orange paint on areas that need repairs. He is getting quotes to repair.
The duplex owners at the end of the street are concerned about parking. They need access to parking, but they are not part of Wilbur Park.
Do we need to reassess the handicapped parking space? The parking is for a resident only, not visitors.
The water main break on Autumn has been repaired, but the street is not repaired to the previous condition. Neal will call the Water Company to see when final repairs are scheduled.
Mike seems to think the resident at 9039 Kathleen was afraid for anyone to enter premises. This is has been on ongoing process. Mike to schedule to get in house with contractors, police and locksmith.
6. Waste Management Report presented by Heidi Warren.
Heidi was told Linda received numerous emails about the trash service not picking up on the scheduled date of the week. Linda was upset she is receiving these.
The Board needs to take control of the email list, Website and Facebook Page. Wilbur Park cannot endorse anyone on any of the websites and we cannot have anyone else doing the same.
7. Village Clerk Report presented by Donna Gravatt.
Wilbur Park did not require an April 2021 election, therefore the current Board Members whose positions expired will be sworn in at the May 2021 meeting.

Wilbur Park received first deposit of Cares Act. We will not qualify for any more at this time.
Neal will look into green waste cans to replace cans damaged or removed.
