City Lake Trail

Some rainy day pictures of the lake and walking trail. We encourage residents to go and enjoy the lake and trail.

We've had several inquiries as to fishing at the lake. The City does not have a city license requirement other than you must have a Missouri State fishing license thru the Missouri Conservation Department. However we want to remind everyone that we do not allow swimming or boats on the lake.

Be aware of car break ins

For the residents throughout the Wood Heights neighborhoods there has been a series of car break ins with a few reports of items being taken from the cars at night.  Please make sure your vehicles are locked and any thing of value is taken into your home.  If you notice any strangers contact the Ray County Sheriff's office (1-816-776-2000)  or City offices (1-816-630-7900) when opened.

When are the streets going to be fixed?

     I made a commitment to address street repairs on a regularly scheduled basis...and I admit we did not begin in June as we intended. The rain issues caused concerns for the city as well as it did for home owners!  The city workers have been addressing water and sewer issues at the city plant and Marvin Hill lift station all during June as a result of the rains.  Gary, Dennis and Kenny have spent extra hours - late evenings, early mornings and weekends on water issues.  Consistently safe drinking water and safe sewer management is the number one priority in the community. 

What are the Primacy Fees on my water/sewer bill?

     As you may notice there is a "Primacy fee" on your sewer bill this month and there will be another one next month on the water bill.  These are fees billed once a year for the Missouri Department of Natural Resources as a funding source to support the MDNR's public drinking water.  Every user of Missouri's public drinking water and sewers is charged these fees. Water and sewer are regulated by the State instead of the Federal government.  Detailed information can be found on the web site: ddnr.mo.gov/en/wpp/primacyfee.htm. 

The weather and our routine

I show approximately 8.5 inches of rain in my gage since Wednesday.  This unusual rain event has affected our routine maintenance and of are mowing schedule.  Dennis and Kenny have been answering the alarm warnings for the water system. I am sure the rain has caused concern for all of us.  We all are ready for a little dry spell.
