Message from Alderman Barclay
If you count seasonal, part-time and full-time people, the City of St. Peters has over 600 employees. They are spread out over different departments that handle a variety of things. Whether they work directly with the public or behind the scenes, every single one of them has one major goal. That’s to serve the residents and businesses of our great City. I might be a little biased, but I’d put them as the best group of municipal employees in the state.
As an Alderman, I’ve had the pleasure of working with many of them over the years. Whether it’s the budget, a proposed development, City event, street project, or a host of many other things, I’ve found that the employees love working here in St. Peters. They are well trained, educated and have a wealth of valuable experience to consistently help us get ranked as one of the best cities to live in. And I’m talking about the entire United States. Money Magazine just named us #22 for 2021. I’m proud to be an elected official in such a place. But it’s the people working for our City that should get the bulk of credit for making this a model community.
I want to use my column this month to thank every single worker and staff person for what you do to make St. Peters a great place to live, work, play and worship. Without all of you, this would be just another municipality that nobody wants to visit, reside in or even shop. I try and meet as many of the employees as I can when I stop by any of the City buildings or attend an event going on in the area. Keep up the good work and know that all the time and effort you put in is seen and appreciated.
With the fall season upon us, I’d like to wish everyone a Happy Halloween and please be safe when trick-or-treating this year. Have fun and feel free to contact me anytime. I’m always available by calling (636) 795-8255 or sending an email to Alderman.Barclay@stpetersmo.net. I invite everyone to follow me on my personal Facebook page for daily updates and information I think you might enjoy. You can connect with me there by logging onto www.facebook.com/aldermanpatrickbarclay. Thank you for allowing me the honor and privilege to serve you on the Board of Aldermen.
PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN BARCLAY:
Ward 4 Road Work
Did you know that the City of St. Peters maintains approximately 550 lane miles of pavement? About a third is constructed of asphalt and two thirds is concrete. Each year we put money in the budget to repair and maintain the roads. I try and do one article in the spring on what work will be done during the current fiscal year. So, please read on to see if any work will be performed in your neighborhood.
First, let us look at streets that will have asphalt overlays take place. They include sections of Cinnamon Hills Dr., Crescent Hills Dr., Gettysburg Landing, Greenwoods Ct., Heritage Landing and Terrestrial Dr. Some curb replacements will also occur on them as well.
Second, many roads will have some concrete slabs replaced in Ward 4. They include Deer Park Ct., Douglas Park Dr., Harvest Brown Ct., Harvest Green Ct., Harvest Meadow Ct., Harvest Meadow Dr., Harvest Point Ct., Harvester Rd. (south near Caulks Hill), Kisker Rd. (north of Route 364), Marcus Dr., McClay Village Circle, Millside Ct. and Red Mill Ct.
Joint and crack sealing throughout the Bella Vista subdivision and Sugar Wood Condominiums will take place. Also, sections of Country Acres Dr., Crescent Woods Dr., Deer Meadow Ct., Greenfield Dr., Magloia Ct., Magnolia Ln., Mill Side Dr. and Prairie Meadow Ct. will be worked on too.
Finally, remember to keep an eye out for lane changes and other work on Route 364 over the next several months. A new off ramp is being constructed east of Jungs Station Road and a new on ramp is being put in just west of S. Old Hwy 94. When completed, it will help alleviate a lot of traffic on South and North St. Peters Parkway.
I’d like to ask everyone who sees any roads that need repair in Ward 4 to contact me. Throughout the year I notice some cracks and potholes around the southern part of St. Peters and then I turn them in to get fixed. Also, some residents help by pointing out additional places that need to be taken care of. Once those locations are turned into the streets department, it usually only takes a short time to patch them. Call me at 636-795-8255 if you see something that needs immediate attention. If it is easier, feel free to send me an email at Alderman.Barclay@stpetersmo.net or message me on Facebook.
