Public Demo of Emergency Communications June 27 & 28, 2015

radio_tower“Who ya’ gonna call? YOUR RAYTOWN Radio Hams!”

Public Demo of Emergency Communications June 27 & 28, 2015

Despite the Internet, cell phones, email and modern communications, every year whole regions find themselves in the dark. Tornadoes, fires, storms, ice and even the occasional cutting of fiber optic cables leave people without the means to communicate. In these cases, the one consistent service that has never failed has been Amateur Radio. These radio operators, often called “hams” provide backup communications for everything from the American Red Cross to FEMA and even for the International Space Station. Your Town’s “hams” will join with thousands of other Amateur Radio operators showing their emergency capabilities this weekend.

Over the past year, the news has been full of reports of ham radio operators providing critical communications during unexpected emergencies in towns across America including the California wildfires, winter storms, tornadoes and other events world-wide. When trouble is brewing, Amateur Radio’s people are often the first to provide rescuers with critical information and communications. On the weekend of June 27-28, the public will have a chance to meet and talk with Raytown ham radio operators and see for themselves what the Amateur Radio Service is about as hams across the USA will be holding public demonstrations of emergency communications abilities

This annual event, called “Field Day” is the climax of the week-long “Amateur Radio Week” sponsored by the ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio. Using only emergency power supplies, ham operators will construct emergency stations in parks, shopping malls, schools and backyards around the country. Their slogan, “When All Else Fails, Ham Radio Works” is more than just words to the hams as they prove they can send messages in many forms without the use of phone systems, internet or any other infrastructure that can be compromised in a crisis. More than 35,000 amateur radio operators across the country participated in last year’s event.

“The fastest way to turn a crisis into a total disaster is to lose communications,” said Allen Pitts of the ARRL. “From the earthquake and tsunami in Japan to tornadoes in Missouri, ham radio provided the most reliable communication networks in the first critical hours of the events. Because ham radios are not dependent on the Internet, cell towers or other infrastructure, they work when nothing else is available. We need nothing between us but air.”

The Raytown Amateur Radio Club will be demonstrating Amateur Radio at 10000 E 59th Street Raytown,Mo (behind Raytown City Hall) on June 27 & 28. They invite the public to come and see ham radio’s new capabilities and learn how to get their own FCC radio
license before the next disaster strikes.

Amateur Radio is growing in the US. There are now over 700,000 Amateur Radio licensees in the US, and more than 2.5 million around the world. Tln·ough the ARRL’s Amateur Radio Emergency Services program, ham volunteers provide both emergency communications for thousands of state and local emergency response agencies and non-emergency community services too, all for free.

To learn more about Amateur Radio, go to www.emergency-radio.org. The public is most cordially invited to come, meet and talk with the hams. See what modern Amateur Radio can do. They can even help you get on the air!

Raytown High School Theatre will perform Moon Over Buffalo

Moon_Over_Buffalo_(1)

The Raytown High School Theatre department will perform Ken Ludwig’s Moon Over Buffalo on April 16, 17 and 18 at the high school.

Set in Buffalo, New York in the 1950s, Moon Over Buffalo is a high energy comedy. The plot involves a family of actors trying to put on a play for a big movie director, Frank Capra. Throughout the show, identities are confused, actors are misplaced, and bringing Murphy’s Law to life, anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

“As the director of this wild show, I have really enjoyed watching these actors grow and use their comedic talents to tell such a fun story,” Director Katie Kolster said.

Performances begin at 7:00 at the Robert B. Atkins Performing Arts Center, 6109 Blue Ridge Blvd. Tickets are $5 for students. Adult tickets are $7 in advance or $8 at the door. Due to the limited number of seats available, advance ticket purchase is suggested. Those interested in attending may call the high school at 268-7300 or email kathleen.kolster@raytownschools.org to RSVP.

Parks Department
Public Forum for Parks and Recreations Master Plan will be held April 8 at 6:30 p.m. in the REAP Conference Room.

Public Works
Just a heads up that work will begin at 79th and Elm in the next 2 or 3 weeks. Road closures are being planned to occur for a few hours at a time….exact days and times will be posted later as the contractor requests. Some days only one lane will be open for use. Here is an explanation of the City’s Street Maintenance Program.

Street Maintenance Program Costs
The City of Raytown maintains 331 lane miles. We use the transportation sales tax and some City revenue to pay to upkeep our streets. Over the last five (5) years the City has spent $833,600 per year for this service. These costs also include sidewalk and curb repair, striping as well as handicap ramps which is a federal law requirement under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). We have to be in compliance with this law.

Let’s say you purchase a new car. You know in 10 years you may be able to afford to buy a new one, but you cannot expect your car to go that long without some repair. So, you do repairs to extend the life of your car until you can afford to purchase a new one. Or, you could ignore the repairs until it quits running or until you have the money to purchase a new car. Not a reasonable choice.

This is what the City faces when it comes to street maintenance. We’d love to have new streets, and be able to do overlays. But, the reality is the City cannot afford it. So, we use a seal that extends the life of the street until we can afford to do the mill and overlay.

To understand the numbers you need to know how the Public Works Department determines costs. A lane mile is a unit of measurement used by Public Works Departments for determining progress of maintenance programs. One lane mile is the width of one lane (12 feet) by one mile (5,280 feet). If you have a two lane street then that would be two lane miles. A turn lane also counts as a lane mile. The two tools the City of Raytown uses are Lightweight Aggregate Seal and Mill and Overlay. The cost per lane mile and life cycle of each tool is:

Cost per Lane Mile Life/Treatment
Lightweight Aggregate $21,542/Lane Mile 7 to 10 years
Mill and Overlay $66,176/Lane Mile 10 to 15 years

If all of the maintenance program funds from the last five years had been spent on Mill and Overlay, the treatment would have covered 50 lane miles, only 15% of all lane miles in five years. In one year we would be able to cover about three percent of all streets or 10 lane miles.

If we go back to our car example, the life cycle of a car is similar to the life cycle of a mill and overlay street which is about 10 to 15 years. Only doing Mill and Overlay would force us to expect a life cycle of a street to be 33 years. We can’t wait 33 years to treat our streets; therefore, the mixed approach is needed.

In the last five years, we have been able to complete Lightweight Aggregate on 70 lane miles and Mill and Overlay on 40 miles, in total 110 lane miles have been treated, or 33% of all the roads in Raytown using both tools. It is prudent to use the most appropriate tool at the proper time. Using the Lightweight Aggregate treatment stretches the life of the street and allows us to keep our roads in a manageable condition.

The City understands that the Lightweight Aggregate is not the first choice of our residents but we hope that this explanation will help you understand the decisions we face in developing a fiscally responsible street maintenance program.

Blighted property now has two new energy efficient homes

Congressman Cleaver was present for the ribbon cutting and open house for two new homes in Raytown. The land previously contained two lots that the City had considered blighted. The new homes were constructed by Builders Development Corporation (BDC) and funding was provided through a Neighborhood Stabilization Program 3 (NSP#) grant the City of Raytown received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. There are no local funds required by the City to participate in the program.

Using the NSP grant funding Builders Development Corporation purchases vacant and foreclosed properties to renovate or reconstruct on the properties and then sells the homes to qualified families. The program is part of the American Recover and Reinvestment Act also known as the Recovery Act was enacted to create jobs and promote invest and consumer spending during the recession. The monies made go back into the program to purchase more properties to further stimulate growth in the City and revitalization of a neighborhood.

Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II – Missouri’s Fifth District, said “It is so satisfying to see homes built that will provide this neighborhood a new sense of excitement while also providing needed jobs to make the homes a reality. These homes will breath new life into this neighborhood turning blight into beauty and houses into hope.”

The BDC is also in the process of renovating a home that had been abandoned at 85th & Elm and is currently identifying other properties to acquire/reconstruct in Raytown.

Annual Egg-Extravaganza On April 4, 2015

On Saturday, April 4, the Raytown Main Street Association will present the Annual Egg-Extravaganza in Downtown Raytown. Kicking off the festivities at 10:00 a.m. in front of the green space at 62nd St will be the Vintage Car and Truck show. At 11:00 a.m. children and adults alike will want to look for the Easter Bunny as the Raytown Community Parade sets off from City Hall, 10000 East 59 St. This year the parade promises some egg-xtra special entrants, including Clydesdale horses, and the chance to enter a raffle for the goodies inside our giant Easter Egg! Everyone in the community is encouraged not only to attend but also to participate! Online registrations for Parade entries and Vendor booths will be available on March 3. Check the Main Street Association website (www.raytownmainstreet.org) or Facebook page for the links or to print off a form. Parade entry forms will also be available at Clark’s Appliances, 9715 E. 63 St, or you may register at 10am at City Hall the day of the Parade. Parade entries are $20.00 and Vendor booths are $35/ $50 for booths with electricity. All vendor fees are tax-deductible as allowed by law since Main Street Association is a 501c3.

Once the parade reaches the green space, children are invited to enjoy story time with the Mayor inside the Mid-Continent Public Library, 6131 Raytown Road. There will be games, face painting, and other interests for the older kids to enjoy until the Free Community Egg Hunt begins at 1pm. The Easter Bunny will be on hand to preside over the great hunt, which is a favorite of children and parents alike every year. Make sure to take some time to shop the vendor booths, grab some lunch, and watch the Dachshund Dash and Dog Costume Contest too; right before or after the Egg Hunt is a great time to do so.

As if all of this wasn’t enough, the Beautiful Baby Contest will kick off at the Egg-Extravaganza; it is slated to run through May 9 at the Farmer’s Market. To enter, proud parents and grandparents need a current 5×7 photo of the baby with baby’s name and parents name printed on back of photo.  Contest is open to babies 1-24 months. There is a $20.00 Registration Fee for each entry.  1st place winner will receive a gift basket plus $100.  2nd and 3rd place winners will receive gift baskets. A “vote” is .25 cents.

For more information about Egg-Extravaganza, to order a child’s limited edition Egg-Extravaganza 2015 T-shirt, to download entry forms, or to register a parade entry or vendor booth online, please visit our website at www.raytownmainstreet.org.

Consultant faults charter & denies endorsement

This article originally ran in the Raytown Times and is reprinted here with their permission


The proposed City Charter has several policy issues that could become problematic for the city. particularly in the working relationships between the Mayor, Board of Aldermen and the City Administrator, Gary Markenson, former executive director of the Missouri Municipal League and now a consultant to cities. said yesterday (Tuesday, March 3 1).

At the Charter Commission’s request, Markenson met with the commissioners early on as they sought advice on charter preparation. After the draft was printed, Commission Chairman Sieve Guenther provided Markenson a copy of the charter and asked him to review it and provide an endorsement. Markenson said he could not endorse it and pointed out to Guenther several key problems.

The Charter has essentially gutted the position of Mayor, stripping the office of all administrative duties and leaving the mayor to handle ceremonial duties, Markenson noted. It also presents a wall between the Mayor and the City Administrator, placing more power with the Board of Aldermen.

The Charter states: ‘The Mayor shall be recognized as head of the City government for all legal and ceremonial purposes;  shall have no administrative duties beyond serving as Board of Aldermen Chairman.”

The Charter also provides for an elected Municipal Judge. but states that the judge, “Need not reside within the City.”

” I don ‘I know of any city in this state that allows an elected official to live outside the city.” Markenson said. ” It seems inconsistent to require the City Administrator to live within the city when an elected judge is not required to.”

Markenson noted that the Charter specifies that “the Park Board may make and adopt such bylaws, rules, and regulations for the guidance and for the operation of the parks. Such rules shall be  adopted into the City code or ordinances upon approval by the Board of Aldermen.”

“Does that mean the city has to rule on every little rule and regulation the Park Board comes up with?” he asked rhetorically.  “It seems that could cause major conflict between the Park
Board and Aldermen. It paves the way for conflict.”

Markenson pointed out several other faults. but praised the Charter Commissioners for their diligence in preparing the document. “They worked really hard,” he said.

 


That concludes the Raytown Times article.  Below is video of Markenson’s presentation at the second Charter Commission meeting.
