Maryville ordinance moves Scooters Coffee forward

By Kathy Turner

An ordinance approved by the Maryville Board on Wednesday, Feb. 1 will allow the construction of the new Scooters Coffee to move forward. 

Ordinance 2023-08 will terminate and release an easement on South Center Street in the Village. It is at the site where the new Scooters Coffee will be constructed over the next months.

The Board also approved two ordinances amending two sections of the Village of Maryville Code of Ordinances. One will amend the duties of the fire department personnel. It outlines specific duties and requirements for members of the fire department and required goals and objectives to be met to remain with the department. 

The second is for all employees of the Village. It identifies requirements and protocols for reimbursement of travel, meals and lodging expenses when traveling for Village duties.  

Another ordinance was passed approving a water service and pre-annexation agreement. This will be for the property at 130 Ridgemoor Drive in Glen Carbon. 

An ordinance was approved to sign the Intergovernmental Agreement for the village with the Village of Glen Carbon and Troy Fire departments. This is an agreement that has been in place since 2015 and identifies the Village of Glen Carbon as the Centralized Public Safety Communications provider. The Village of Maryville pays a prorated cost of these services based on usage. 

Each of the Maryville parks will be receiving new Dog Waste Disposal Bag Dispensers in the next months after approval of the Board on Wednesday. It is estimated that six of the dispensers will be distributed in the parks. The Board also approved a memorial program for the dispensers.  A donation was made by Village residents in memory of their lost pet to fund the project.

The Board approved the purchase of a new Bobcat Compact Excavator for the street department. The excavator, at a cost of $102,510.90, has been ordered from Bobcat of St. Louis.

Staff reports were presented at the meeting for January statistics. The Building and Zoning department issued 20 permits in January. The fire department responded to 128 calls to service during the month. And the police department answered 672 calls to service and issued 257 citations in the Village.

The Village Museum Committee will hold their regular meeting on Monday, Feb. 27 at 6 p.m. They are asking local residents to join them for the meeting and refreshments. The evening meeting will be held with a goal of introducing residents to the museum and what it has to offer. 

The next regular Village Board meeting will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 6:30 p.m. at Village Hall.
