A Brand New Year for St. Peters To Serve You

When the skies let loose with the fluffy white flakes of snow, our street crews work intensively to maintain and repair our roads in an effort to control pavement failure caused by the extreme changes in temperatures. They do their best keeping up with potholes that occur, especially this time of year with the fluctuating temperatures.

 

The street crews will be out in force repairing and replacing pavement. Some residents have questioned how the determination is made as to where and when repairs or replacement of pavement is made unless there is an emergency that a pothole or deep crack that needs to be fixed.

 

The City uses a guideline we call the “Pavement Management Program” that is designed to provide well maintained, high-quality streets and sidewalks in our City at the lowest reasonable cost. A computer database contains maintenance records of every street in the City including the current pavement condition.

 

Planned levels of maintenance are carefully matched with available funds to achieve the best possible level of service across the City. That is a big task since we have nearly 550 lane miles of streets.

 

I am told that properly installed concrete pavement has a life span of about 35 years and that the average useful life of properly installed asphalt pavement is 17 years. You will see the Streets Department crews in your neighborhoods periodically sealing cracks and performing miscellaneous spot repairs to extend the life of the pavement.

 

Older streets in the City were constructed directly on a compacted soil sub-grade. Since 1998, all new pavement placed in the City of St. Peters has been constructed on four-inch thick aggregate rock base providing a harder, more stable base, which helps to extend the life of the pavement.

 

If you see a pothole in need of repair, be sure to report it. Call me and leave a message and I will take care of it for you, or you can report it directly to the City’s Citizen Action Center at 636-477-6600, ext. 1225. Our crews will work to get the pothole filled right away.

 

I hope everyone had a great Christmas holiday, and all of us at City Hall are working for a great and prosperous New Year. Let’s also keep our servicemen and women in our prayers and wish them the strength and courage to bring us back the freedoms we look forward to each day. If you see one of them in uniform, please stop and shake their hand and say “Thank You.” It means a lot to them.

 

Please save those aluminum cans for our "Pennies for Patriots Program" and drop them off on the west side of City Hall in the Brown Dumpster or at Recycle City in the big Blue Dumpster.

 

All the money raised goes to the USO at Lambert Field for the guys and gals that serve us here and across the sea. It’s a home away from home to make their stay comfortable. God Bless America!

 

Please remember that as your alderman, my door is always open. Contact me with any concern you might have. I am proud to be your alderman and value your comments. My phone number is 636-485-5710. My e-mail address is ald_reitmeyer@yahoo.com.

 


PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN REITMEYER:

Christmas Holiday Wishes

Happy Holidays everyone! It’s my favorite time of the year—the Christmas lights and decorations are up all around the City and you can almost feel the holiday spirit! I just love the holiday season and all of the holiday activities the City of St. Peters has to offer, like Breakfast with Santa at Rec-Plex South on Saturday, Dec. 8, and the Winter Wonderland on Ice skating exhibition at the Rec-Plex on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 7-8. The St. Peters Police Department also will have a FREE Tree Trimming event for kids on Dec. 7, and for adults the Cultural Arts Centre will host a Holiday Dance on Dec. 21. You won’t want to miss all these fun holiday activities so close to home, so check for more details on www.stpetersmo.net.

 

When you’re walking down the street or in the malls and pass a serviceman or woman, please say “Hi” and shake their hand and say “Thank You” for all you have done. Please remember your veterans and thank them for their service. If it were not for them, we would not have the freedoms we have today. This means a lot to them knowing they are remembered, and a lot of our service members wish they were home with their families. You can also stop by the USO at Lambert Field. Any donation you can give to the USO will mean a world to them when they stop in for a warm meal or catch a few hours sleep. An easy way that you can donate to the USO is to drop off aluminum cans for our "Pennies for Patriots” program on the west side of City Hall in the Brown Dumpster or at Recycle City in the big Blue Dumpster. God Bless America!

 

I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and safe New Year! I hope you enjoy all the holiday festivities and quality time with your loved ones.
