St. Mary aldermen took care of things in just 11 minutes at their monthly meeting last Thursday.
There were no items on the agenda under either “Unfinished Business” or “New Business.”
Only department reports were given.
For Emergency Management, Director April Grindstaff had nothing to report.
Police Chief Brendon Corbett could not make it to the meeting, but sent a report via email, which City Clerk April Grindstaff read.
In December, he responded to 11 calls for service including harassment calls, traffic stops and ordinance violations. Since the first of the year, he has been notified of two calls for service the Ste. Genevieve Sheriff’s Department had assisted on while he was not available.
Fire Chief Frankie Ullman reported that they replaced the strobe light and modular on Truck 42. He is going to replace DC and AC light on Truck 41 due to wiring. They are going to be ordering the material to finish the new meeting room at the firehouse. He also said they had two calls this month. One was for a medic call and the other one was for and assist on a structure fire with Ste. Genevieve Fire Department.
For the Street Department, Alderman Dr. Zenon Duda said the ditch on Second and Sycamore Street is cleaned out. Mayor Carlton Wyatt said there had been some equipment issues the past few days. The tractor’s heat sensor went out, but was replaced. The big spreader was down at the moment but the smaller spreader was repaired, so crews can still spread cinders on the roads during inclement weather.
For the Water/Wastewater Department, Ullman reported that the water samples were still coming back good. He also suggested that the residents let their faucets drip with the freezing temps coming in the weekend. As for the sewer side, things are going well. He said there were a few issues to go over. He has a few more grinders going down. Some of the grinders the floats need to be replaced
Alderman Brenda Thompson reported that she had nothing to report for Park/Cemetery/Animal Control.
