CITY ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT

City Administrator Hanson announced mosquito fogging ends this week and leaf pick-up will begin on October 24th. The City will work to provide an updated map of the leaf pick-up routes to view on the City’s website during leaf collection. Firewood has been made available to the public at the Pointe and North Pointe parking lots. City Administrator Hanson advised that if residents would like firewood, they should get there in the morning because it disappears quickly.

City Administrator Hanson thanked his colleagues, the department heads, especially Finance Officer Denise Keller, for their work to find priorities for the 2017 Budget.

City Administrator Hanson congratulated Denise Keller and her department for receiving the GFOA Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the 2nd year in a row for the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). Ms. Keller has worked hard since starting here to receive distinction from the GFOA.

STAFF REPORTS

STREET TREE PLANTING
Formal bid requests were solicited for the provision and planting of 54, Swamp White Oaks to be planted this fall as street trees as part of the city’s community planting cost share program. Only two bids were received. Staff recommended the Board award the bid to the low bidder, Landesign, for the provision and planting of the trees.

Alderman Roach stated his concerns about the selection of the White Oak Tree. He was concerned about what the trees would drop and how residents may be upset with having paid a $100 for a tree that drops acorns.

A motion was made by Alderman Finley and seconded by Alderman Terbrock to award the Street Tree Planting to Landesign. A voice vote was taken with a unanimous affirmative result and the motion passed.

MYINSPECTIONS MODULE FROM NEW WORLD
City Administrator Hanson stated New World’s myInspections iPad app leverages the latest technology to simplify inspections, enabling inspectors to spend less time in the office and more time out in the field. Staff would like to purchase this module now in order to schedule implementation to begin in January. Several inspectors are retiring late winter/early spring of next year and having the new platform up and ready for use will prevent the need to train new inspectors on two systems. This new system should allow the city to become more efficient.

Alderman Stallmann stated that this is an astounding idea to allow for payments to be processed online along with processes to be handled online.

Alderman Fleming added that New World Systems has been acquired by a larger company, Tyler Technologies, and he believes this is a benefit to the City.

A motion was made by Alderman Fleming and seconded by Alderman Tebrock to move forward with the MyInspections Module. A voice vote was taken with a unanimous affirmative result and the motion passed.

ALDERMANIC COMMENTS
Alderman Roach thanked Cub Scout Pack 621, as a former scout himself from Ballwin Elementary School, for attending the meeting.

Alderman Finley also thanked Cub Scout Pack 621 from Ballwin Elementary School for attending the Board meeting and advised them all to stay away from drugs.

Cub Scout Pack 621 retired the colors.

A motion was made by Alderman Fleming and seconded by Alderman Terbrock to adjourn the Board of Aldermen Meeting. A roll call vote was taken with a unanimous result, and the meeting was adjourned
