A group of property owners approached the board for help with the overgrown vegetation in the subdivision retention ponds. It was determined that the city has some responsibility for maintaining the ponds because they are the end of the stormwater runoff system. The board directed the Public Works Department to take whatever action was necessary within the scope of the City’s responsibilities to help remedy the problem.
Ron Walters from the Huntington subdivision requested that the board (a) limit the development of West Hampton and Walnut Creek Senior Development which increases the watershed; (b) do something with the culvert; (c) reinforce the bridge; and (d) perform brush work in the stream for flow as the water comes up quickly and goes down just as fast as if something was blocking the water downstream.
Public Works Superintendent Cunningham said the bridge was inspected five years ago when it was mud-jacked. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources would dictate the culvert size and brush-clearing of a creek. Cunningham said he would inspect the bridge to see if any repairs were needed. Building Official Lindsey said that all development on the west side of the creek complied with stormwater ordinances; specifically mentioning retention ponds within the West Hampton and Walnut Creek Developments.
Eric Stephens of Wentzville asked the board for a preliminary approval of a liquor license application at 180 Main St., located within 100 feet of a child care facility. After much discussion, including the owner of the child care facility, the board indicated that as long as all of the rules were followed, and the two property owners were willing to work together, then the board would tentatively agree to issuing a liquor license. This location would be the old Stefanina’s Pizzeria.
Kristen Mergler, a trustee with the West Hampton Woods HOA, approached the board about signage for parking in the subdivision. There was some discussion about whether the area in question had ever been dedicated to the city by the builder, Helmut Weber. If that had not taken place, then the builder would be responsible for putting up street signs. The city was going to check to see if dedication had taken place.
Rob Hamlett of Troy requested that lights be placed along the new sidewalk that will be built connecting the senior housing and the electronic crosswalk over Hwy 47 to Walmart. The board directed the Mayor to see if there was money available from the grant to build the sidewalk to add lights.
Barbara Richey, on behalf of Sugar Creek Assisted Living, called the day of the meeting and asked to be removed from the agenda.
Ashley Key was appointed to the Park Board. The City would like to thank her for volunteering her time to help make Troy a nicer place to live.
The board approved the final pay application for retention in the amount of $20,213.50 to Karrenbrock Excavation, LLC on the Whitetail Lift Station Improvement Project.
The board awarded and authorized the Mayor to sign the Crooked Creek Fencing/Backstop project in the amount of $45,275.00 to Robinson Fence as the lowest and best bid.
The board approved Change Order No. 4 in the reduced amount of ($3,875.00) submitted by Wehmeyer Farms, Inc. on the Third Street Water Main Relocation Project.
Approved pay application #3 in the amount of $24,885.25 submitted by Wehmeyer Farms Inc. on the Third Street Water Main Relocation Project.
Approved Final Pay Application #4 for Retention in the amount of $12,538.95 submitted by Wehmeyer Farms, Inc. on the Third Street Water Main Relocation Project.
The board approved a Traffic Study Cost Share of $2,000.00 for Hwy 61 West Outer Road.
In the Police Department, an off-duty officer observed a vehicle pull onto the Behlmann Buick dealership and turn off its headlights. He immediately contacted the on-duty units which responded and then resulted in a pursuit of two individuals south on Hwy 61. They got off on Hwy A in Wentzville, at which time the officers lost sight of the suspects. The detectives processed the two burglary scenes at the two Behlmann locations and collected a few important pieces of evidence which were taken to the Missouri State Highway Patrol Laboratory. The alarm company failed to notify law enforcement because the alarm was not set correctly. They were alerted to movement in the showrooms, but failed to call it in.
Some of the officers have been painting the training room, hallways and doing a little freshening of our Police Department. This is where we will have photographs recognizing the history of the Troy Police Department, along with morale building and team work building slogans promoting Police enforcement.
In Public Works, ten tons of asphalt and 84 cubic yards of concrete were placed in potholes and street repairs. Water production in August totaled 38,909,000 gallons pumped, with the highest daily maximum of 1,539,000 gallons. All warning sirens were tested, and all eight sirens are working properly.
Sales tax deposits for September of 2019 were 2.68% more than deposits for September of 2018. The 1% Local Sales Tax was 2.54% more, the ½% Transportation Tax was 3.13% more and the ½% Capital Improvement Tax was 2.54% more than September of 2018. For the first quarter of the 2019-2020 fiscal year, our sales tax deposits EW UP VY 1.85%.
In Mid-July the City was contacted by S & P Global to schedule a rating review of our Series 2012 and 2012A Certificates of Participation. Jennifer Garza, with S & P Global, forwarded a list of discussion topics, which with the help of Steve Goehl and the Mayor, was completed and returned to her prior to our call. The conference call was held on July 30th with the Mayor, Steve Goehl, Brock Goehl and Linda Flinn in attendance. There were a few follow-up items to submit to her, and after a few weeks the rating was published. The rating remained AA-with a stable outlook.
In the Building Department, there were 11 new housing starts for the month as well as twelve additional permits issued with a total valuation of $1,607,250.00 and total fees collected of $51,171.00. After the first two months of the new fiscal year, there have been 23 new housing starts which is almost half way to our yearly target for new housing starts. That means the community is growing and the economy is booming.
In the Parks Department, the crew has been re-mulching Kiwanis Playground in Fairgrounds Parks. The recent heavy rains mean a lot of mulch has been washed away. The crew has been working very hard getting rid of all the graffiti in the restrooms and the skate park. This was a long process of re-painting the restrooms in Fairgrounds and applying multiple coats of graffiti remover and power washing all the ramps in the skate park. TBHS held their annual softball tournament over Labor Day weekend. They use multiple school facilities and Fairgrounds Park.
That is all for this month. Be safe out there and God Bless you all.
