City Administrator’s Report for 7/6/2012

City Administrator’s Report
FROM: Mahesh Sharma, City Administrator


The City Clerk’s office has been contacted regarding representatives of a trash hauling company going door-to-door offering residential trash, recyclables and yard waste pickup services. Waste Services, LLC is not licensed to do business in Raytown nor have they been issued a Solicitor and/or Peddlers permit. The City has contacted Waste Services, LLC and notified the company of the requirement to obtain a business license. Some citizens have reportedly been told their existing trash hauler will no longer be providing service in their area. Citizens with questions about their current trash service are encouraged to contact their current provider, to always do business with properly licensed companies and always read the fine print before signing any documents.

The 2012 MML Annual Conference is scheduled for September 16th – 19th at the Tan-Tar-A Resort. As in the past, reservations may be made by contacting Teresa Henry, City Clerk.

Community Development

Neighborhood Services and Public Works personnel have completed multiple sign sweeps over the past two weeks in advance of the All-Star Game at Kaufman Stadium. The sign sweeps have removed signs that have been placed illegally within the street and highway right-of-ways. Though staff regularly performs sign sweeps throughout each month, the efforts have been increased to enhance the appearance of the community during this event.

As part of the City’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP3), Builders Development Corporation (BDC) has purchased the vacant property located on the southwest corner of Willow Avenue and 53rd Street and will construct a home on this property later this year. Construction continues on the third NSP3 house located at 5428 Sterling; it is anticipated this house will be completed later this summer.

Revised construction plans for a new Hy-Vee Convenience Store were submitted to the Community Development Department this week. The convenience store is to be located at 9401 Highway 350, which is the location of the former Jeep dealership. The demolition permit for removal of the building and asphalt parking on the property has been issued by the Community Development Department. The building is anticipated to be knocked down by the end of day, Friday, July 6th, and debris removal within two weeks thereafter. Construction to begin on the new Hy-Vee Convenience store is yet to be determined.
