CITY ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT
City Administrator Hanson announced that the House Dedication Ceremony for Officer Mike Flamion will be on Tuesday, 11-21-2017. He stated he expects there to be a large crowd.
City Administrator Hanson stated there has been a rise in issues regarding temporary rentals. The current ordinance does not allow for temporary room rentals and City Administrator Hanson is looking for the Board’s direction. The Board discussed residents temporarily renting rooms within their homes. The Board stated they would like additional research and information before providing staff direction.
UTILITY PATCHES IN THE RIGHT-OF-WAY Director of Development / Assistant City Administrator Andy Hixson and Streets Superintendent Jim Link, asked if the Board would be in favor of including a section on excavation permits that would allow utility companies, working on repairs in the right-of way, to pay the City of Ballwin to restore the road or sidewalk at the conclusion of their repair. In the past, after a repair has been made in the right-of-way, there has been a problem with work being completed that is of lasting quality and in a timely manner. The Board agreed with Mr. Hixson and Mr. Link and directed them to add the option of paying the City restore the street and sidewalk at the conclusion of the utility company’s repair to the excavation permit.
Alderman Roach stated he was going to welcome the Boy Scouts for attending the Board meeting but they had left just prior to Aldermanic comments and thanked the Marquette students who were attending the meeting.

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
