Weldon Springs Invites Home Owner Trustees to Open House

The city of Weldon Spring is planning an Open House geared toward subdivision homeowner trustees. The Open House will be at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 11, in the City Hall Board Room. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. All current homeowner trustees are invited to attend this informational meeting.

The purpose of the meeting is to update the subdivision trustees on current city business topics and provide a forum for the trustees to ask questions and voice their opinions.

It has been several years since the city hosted such an event, however, in the past Mayor Donald Licklider would invite trustees to meet in order to keep lines of communication open.

"Subdivision trustees are our best line of communication between the city and residents; they are active in their community and they talk with their neighbors," Licklider said. "This makes them well informed about what is on the minds of residents and this will help us gauge the pulse of the community."

The tentative format of the meeting will consist of the following:

* Welcoming remarks from Mayor Licklider.

* An overview of municipal operations by the city administrator.

* Emergency Preparedness by Sonja Zeis, CERT coordinator and volunteer.

* A status report from St. Charles County Sheriff Tom Neer regarding the enhanced police presence.

* A status report on current and future proposed road improvement projects by the city engineer.

The Open House is just the first of a series of community engagement efforts which the city is planning to initiate this year.

In 2008 the city adopted a Strategic Plan which was based on community input and surveys. The plan needs to be updated and potentially revised in order to best capture the desires and priorities of the community today. The Trustee's Open House will be the first step in engaging the residents and obtaining their feedback on key issues.
