Happy New Year from the County Council

This post was originally published on this site

As 2021 comes to an end, as County Council Chairman, I wanted to take the opportunity on behalf of the entire St. Charles County Council to wish all of you and yours a safe and happy new year. Our wish is that 2022 brings hope and peace to those in need, and health and happiness to all.
With everything that has happened throughout this challenging year, we are honored to be your elected officials and proud of all the successes our county has achieved. From parks to transportation, law enforcement to emergency management, the County is here to serve its residents. We want to know when you have questions and concerns—please don’t hesitate to call the Councilperson who represents your district. If you don’t know who that is, you can look it up using the district map on the County website [https://maps.sccmo.org/public_web_map/] .
As always, you are invited to attend our County Council meetings at 7 p.m., on the second and last Monday of each month, unless otherwise noted, where you can participate in the public comments part of the agenda. You can find information about meeting dates and times, meeting agendas, and links to minutes and videos of past meetings on the County website [https://sccmo.org/286/County-Council/Council] . Our past meetings are all posted on YouTube at SCCMO-TV [https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLuD7_4agcbaKVmS3hFPPMB_2LOi4wJOeD] . Please feel free to call the County Council office at 636-949-7530 or email us [mailto:council@sccmo.org] with questions, suggestions, or concerns.
Please know, each of your council members understands and respects the responsibility and honor we have in serving, what in my opinion, is the best county in the State of Missouri. We were again named one of the two healthiest counties in the state, lead the way in highest median household income, and are one of the highest educated counties in Missouri. We are thankful for the opportunity to serve you.
Happy New Year!

A Message from the County Executive: A Community Joining Together

This post was originally published on this site

It takes everyone joining together to pull through a disaster and St. Charles County certainly proved that after a tornado ripped through part of our community around 7:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 10 It left an estimated $3.4 million, 2.5-mile path of destruction through the Defiance area.
The second it was safe to do so, police, fire, ambulance, Regional Emergency Management, Emergency Communications, County Highway, the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), Missouri State Highway Patrol, Red Cross, AmeriCorp, Ameren, Cuivre River Electric and the citizens of our community began to help. And they continued to help…throughout the weekend and into the weeks that have followed.
During the storm, three people were injured, one fatally. While any loss of life is a tragedy, we were fortunate that others were not critically injured or that more homes and businesses were not destroyed. That can be directly attributed to those who rushed to the scene to help while first making certain it was safe for themselves and others to do so.
I am proud of the way the community came together and responded after this disaster and am particularly pleased how your County employees jumped into action. The St. Charles County Regional Emergency Management staff were immediately on scene, doing what they are constantly trained to do. County Highway staff responded to remove trees and debris from roadways so emergency crews could reach those in need. County Police made certain homes and residents were safe and, in the days that followed, that traffic was kept to a minimum so that professional crews and volunteers could do their work. Councilman Joe Brazil, whose district is in the Defiance area, was instrumental in organizing teams of workers to assist in clean-up efforts.
Staff in the Community Development Department worked diligently and, in a two-day period, inspected 240 structures to make certain we knew what structures were safe to inhabit or enter. Overall, 72 structures in the tornado’s path were either destroyed, received major or minor damage, or were affected by the storm in some way. The dedication of our employees enabled us to know quickly which homes were not safe, avoiding the potential of more injuries.
Thank you, St. Charles County, for coming together to help those in need during this disaster. Whether your assistance was physical labor, donations of food, supplies or money, distribution of meals, or your thoughts and prayers for those affected, it does indeed take all of us to get through trying times.
