St. Peters Aldermen Have Busy Day Ahead with Three Meetings

Aldermen will have a special meeting at 4:45 p.m., a work session at 5 p.m. and a regular meeting at 7 p.m.

Thursday night will be a triple-header for the St. Peters Board of Aldermen at the Justice Center. 

In addition to the usual combo of work session and regular meeting, the board will have a special meeting to replace the recently resigned Gus Elliott. At 4:45 p.m. Mayor Len Pagano and the board will meet to approve or deny the appointment of Terri Violet for the vacant Ward 3 seat. 

Following the special meeting the board will return to its regularly scheduled program of 5 p.m. work session and 7 p.m. meeting. 

The work session agenda is fairly full for the board. The board has two items for discussion, the first is a stop sign removal at Maple Tree Drive and Golden Hills Drive. The other item deals with proposed road work.

Last week citizens were able to voice their opinion about proposed changes along Interstate 70. One of the proposed changes was making the outer roads into one-lane roads, a plan many business owners appeared to not be in favor of. Board President Rocky Reitmeyer has prepared a resolution to oppose the one-way roads betweens Spencer and Cave Springs. 

Also on the work session agenda:

  • A discussion about a potential agreement with East Central Missouri Water and Sewer Authority.
  • A breifing on a fuel tank/dispenser at the Justice Center that needs to be replaced.
  • A plan to enter into a cost apportionment agreement for I-70 & MRMD Bridge Enhancements  with MoDOT.

Following the work session, the board will have it's regular meeting. The board will have several recognitions to start the meeting. 

A new police officer, John R. Aebishcher, will take the oath of office. Following him will be a presentation for Jim Karll on his retirement and a recognition of Keith McNames, Chris Winslow and Pat Kelley for their work with Prop P.

Also on the meeting agenda the board will vote on nine items of new business and one old business item.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't all 3 of the men being recognized at the board meeting for their work on prop p, members of the planning & zoning commission? Wasn't this commission part of the group credited with "careful planning" in the prop p promotional material. Let me try to understand this. Wasn't it P&Z who approved/required the various site plans that created all the impervious surfaces, approved high density zoning with little or no green space, and approved the design of the defective/malfunctioning detention basins? As a result of all these impervious surfaces and defective basins we ended up with a storm water problem. Now they are being publicly lauded for their efforts to help pass a tax increase to fleece the residents out of another $5 million/year to correct the same problems they helped create. It also appears from the list of projects presented by the board last month, that most of the funds will be allocated to repair/maintain select PRIVATE properties. WOW; even Washington DC would struggle to stoop to this level of ineptitude and political cronyism. I think it's time for the residents to wake up and start voting in far greater percentages than they have previously. I think it's time for a full house-cleaning at city hall. How can we ever expect to gain control of our government and spending/taxation in Washington if we can't even do it locally?

The man who retired from the city after 33 years of running the water and the waste water plant was Jim KARLL. You made a spelling error

It's been fixed.

I totally agree. They are trying to fleece my neighborhood for draining a leaking pond that didn't leak until after they "improved" Feise Road. They created the problem and now want us residents to pay to fix it.
