Public Meetings on MSD Rate Proposal Scheduled for March
On Wednesday, March 4, the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) presented the Rate Proposal for fiscal years 2017 through 2020 (July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2020) to its Rate Commission for both wastewater rates and stormwater revenues. These proposed changes would apply to all MSD customers. MSD will host a series of community briefings with the goal of communicating the components of and reasoning behind the proposal. MSD’s Executive Director Brian Hoelscher will present the proposal, followed by a question and answer session. While these briefings are designed to provide information to the public, MSD Rate Commission will hold its own public hearings in May, specifically to hear public comment about the proposal. Two MSD Community Meetings remain:
- Wednesday, April 1, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m., St. Louis County Library, Tesson Ferry Branch, 9920 Lin-Ferry Drive, 63123
- Wednesday, April 8, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m., The Pointe at Ballwin Commons, 1 Ballwin Commons Circle, Ballwin. 63021

Order of Plowing Reminder
When snow falls, City plowing crews focus first on the main roads, such as Kirkwood Road, Geyer Road, Essex, Woodlawn, Woodbine, Couch, etc. Cleaning these streets first allows emergency vehicles to get through when needed. During this first stage, street crews also work on hills and bridges. Crews do not begin to work on secondary streets until the snow stops. Secondary streets include Taylor, Fillmore, Dickson, Quan, Rose Hill, Clay, Lindeman, Harrison, Peeke, and Ann. When all those are done, crews move to subdivision streets and clear those.
PRE-TREATING: When possible, crews pre-treat all City streets when a storm has been predicted. However, in some storms, when the temperatures are very low, pretreating may not work very well.
