Recent issues around the village have been brought to the attention of the Board. 

Concerned residents addressed the Board of Trustees regarding issues surrounding the homeless population, traffic violations, code enforcement problems, and possible crimes being committed. 

~Many of the concerns required police intervention, such as speeding, no current license tags, no stopping at stop signs.  The police are aware of these concerns and have been taking measures to address them accordingly.  Officers have been running a courtesy check on "no cut-through streets", informing drivers (unless they live there or do business there) are not to be used, Google maps were updated to include the "No-cut through" streets, submitted a request for a moveable speed limit trailer, and much more.  Additionally, the village is looking into getting flashing stop signs at some of the more dangerous intersections. 

When you see anything that is out of the ordinary (such as an unknown vehicle repeatedly cruising /or parked on street or what looks to be a possible crime being committed)...

CALL THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY. 

Additionally,  it is the owner's responsibility to keep their vehicles, homes, and garages locked. Be proactive in protecting  your possessions.  The non-emergency number is listed in the header of this page.  If it is a dangerous situation, call 911.  Please do not hesitate to call either number.

~Concerns or issues regarding code enforcement were addressed.  If you see anything in your neighborhood, please call Village Hall at the number listed above.  Even though the village is inspected on a weekly basis, there are some items that are missed or cannot be seen from the street.  Many issues the village can deal with, but a procedure has to be followed and resolution may not occur immediately.  Considering the complaint regarding updating commercial property is not something the village is allowed to do, but we can make sure the properties are kept clean and trash free.  If there are structural issues, the village can address these problems.  All businesses storefronts were inspected and were found to clean and free of trash and debris.

~Concerns were expressed regarding the increasing homeless in the area.  Unless individuals are doing something that violates law or ordinances, there is not much that can be done without consent from the property owner.

Should you have any concerns, please contact village hall.  If it is something that requires immediate police intervention, please call either of the numbers listed at top of this page.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

​Mosquitoes!!

As the temperature outside begins to rise, so does the mosquito population.  Mosquitoes are a summer nuisance and can ruin many outdoor activities.  But more importantly, they also pose a health threat, transmitting diseases, such as West Nile Virus, St. Louis encephalitis, and dog heart-worm.  Worldwide, mosquitoes can carry many other diseases, such as dengue fever, malaria and yellow fever.

Don't be a mosquito breeder!

Mosquitoes can ONLY develop in standing water.  They lay their eggs, usually in places where water collects (old tires, tin cans, buckets, gutters, plant bases, etc.)  To reduce the mosquito population around your home,

DUMP THE STANDING WATER!!

Here is an easy checklist to follow to prevent mosquito breeding around your home:

  • clean rain gutters & downspouts

  • discard old tires or store inside

  • empty flowerpots, tin cans, buckets - any container that might collect water

  • store wheelbarrows, canoes, boats upside down

  • empty, clean and refill birdbaths and small wading pools weekly

  • stock ornamental ponds with fish that eat mosquito larvae

  • repair leaky outside faucets

  • secure swimming pool covers tightly

  • keep grass cut and bushes trimmed

 

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

  • protect yourself during outside activity. 

  • spray clothing and exposed skin with insect repellents (always follow label instructions).  Use repellents containing no more that 50% DEET on adults, 10% or less DEET on children 2-12 years old.

  • wear protective clothing such as light colored, long-sleeve shirts, long pants and socks while outdoors.

  • limit outdoor activity at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are the most active.

 

The village contracts with St. Louis County Health Department for mosquito control services. these services include:

  • monitoring potential breeding sites

  • applying treatment if mosquito larvae are found (larvaciding)

  • spraying for adult mosquitoes based on surveillance data (adultciding).  Spraying kills only those adult mosquitoes that come in contact with the spray.  It is not a long-term solution.

 

The solution lies with you and your neighbors to dump the standing water!

​​FEMA READY Campaign

 

Through its Ready campaign, the US Department of Homeland Security educates and empowers Americans to take some simple steps to prepare for and response to potential emergencies, including natural disasters and terrorist attacks.  Ready asks individuals to do three key things:

  • get an emergency supply kit

  • make a family emergency plan

  • and be informed of different types of emergencies that could occur and their appropriate responses. 

 

All Americans should have some basic supplies on hand in order to survive for at least three days if an emergency occurs.  Following is a listing of some basic items that every emergency supply kit should include.  However, it is important that individuals review this list and consider where they live and the unique needs of their family in order to create an emergency supply kit that will meet these needs.  Individuals should also consider having at least two emergency supply kits, one full kit at home and small portable kits in their workplace, vehicle or other places they spend time.

 

 

BASIC EMERGENCY SUPPLY KIT

 

    

As we enter the severe weather season, FEMA (Federal Emergency Management

Administration) recommends assembling a Basic Emergency Supply Kit.   Recommended items to include are:

  • Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days for drinking and sanitization

  • Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food

  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both

  • Flashlight and extra batteries

  • First Aid Kit

  • Whistle to signal for help

  • Dust mask, to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place

  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation

  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities

  • Can opener for food (if kit contains canned food)

  • Local maps

 

 ADDITIONAL ITEMS TO CONSIDER ADDING TO AN EMERGENCY SUPPLY KIT:

 

  • Prescription medications and glasses

  • Infant formula and diapers

  • Pet food and extra water for your pet

  • Important family documents such as copies of insurance policies, identification and bank account records in a waterproof portable container

  • Cash or traveler's checks and change

  • Emergency reference material such as a first aid book or information from www.ready.gov

  • Consider bedding for cold weather.

  • Clothing

  • Household chlorine bleach and medicine dropper (When diluted nine parts water to one part bleach can be used as a disinfectant.  Or in an emergency, you can use it to treat water by using 16 drops of regular household liquid bleach per gallon of water.  Do not use scented, color safe or bleaches with added cleaners.)

  • Fire extinguisher

  • Matches in a waterproof container

  • Eating utensils, paper towels

  • Paper and pencil
