PARK REPORT – SWT Design:  There were no comments due to the meeting held at 6:00 PM before the regular meeting.

Lindel Bolten, Park Supervisor reported water was turned on at the Park and restrooms opened.  We have been working on bids for cameras.  Ameren installed the new light at the park which lights up the northwest corner of the trail.  There is a problem with dogs at the park pulling trash bags out of the trash cans.  I cannot use bags in the trash cans or tie extra bags on the cans commented Lindel Bolten.  

STREET REPORT:  Street Supervisor, Darrell Taube reported Carel Road is now shut down for the sewer crossing.  Signs that were approved last month have been ordered.  Art Rockers expressed concern about the intersection at St. Martins Boulevard and Business 50.  We are not able to get the City truck around the turn.  The radius is too short.  We have told Chris Yarnell and he said the computer said it would work.  I think it was a poor design stated Mr. Taube. 

We should not do anything until everything is approved on the Business 50 project stated Doug Reece.

Bob Hackman, president of Rose Ridge Homeowners Association would like a “No Outlet” sign for the subdivision. 

CITY ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT:  Doug Reece reported according to the Missouri Municipal League St. Martins would receive $221,000 with the 1.9 million stimulus bill.

The VFW is signing the contract to pave their parking lot. 

ROUSH QUESTIONS:  Lindsey, John and Sue Roush came to the meeting to inquire about the lot adjacent to the city office.  The lot is owned by Rose Lineberry and the City has “first right of refusal” on the lot.  The Roush’s would like to construct a coffee shop on this lot.  It therefore would need to be rezoned as it is now zoned single family residential. 

EXCAVATION PERMIT:  Street Supervisor Darrell Taube stated any homeowner, contractor, etc. must come to the City for an “excavation permit”.  We need to have some record of work  one on the City’s right-of-way.  It was suggested contacting the County to see if they have an excavation permit.

With no further business, Alderman Scott Amos moved and Alderman Darrell Walker seconded to adjourn the meeting.  Meeting was adjourned...
