BOARD MEETING  

On Tuesday, October 8th at 6 pm, the Board of Trustees will hold their monthly board meeting.  The agenda for that meeting is always posted on the Thursday prior, on the bulletin board next to the front door, city hall. We also email newsletters, meeting agendas, and other public notices. Send your email address to:  oakview.missouri@sbcglobal.net

ROAD WORK ON SHADY AND FOREST  

On October 28th through the 30th we will be working on curb replacement, milling and overlay work on Shady Lane, from N Oak to Forest. Expect delays and traffic issues.

CONSIDERING SOME CONSTRUCTION THIS FALL?

A deck, patio, fence, addition, or garage? The zoning ordinance and building codes regulate all construction. A completed application gets the ball rolling. The entire permitting process can take several weeks so apply ASAP.  

GOING ON VACATION

Or a business trip? Stop by city hall and fill out a vacation sheet. We’ll keep an eye on your home while you’re gone.  

TRASH/ RECYCLING AND YARD WASTE  

Thursdays, have it out before 7 AM!

More than will fit in your PolyCart? Additional bag stickers are available at City Hall for $1.00 each.   

Recycling limited to what fits in your polycart.

March 1stthrough December 31- Up to 7 biodegradable yard waste paper bags or tied stick bundles (4‘x 2’ wide) per week.    

Once emptied, please don’t leave poylcarts at the street.  

The yearly rate for 2020 will be $124.44. This will be listed on your 2020 Real Estate Tax Bill from Clay County. This rate is less than half what residents in neighboring communities pay.

HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE

Here is how to get rid of you old antifreeze, flammables, paint, solvents, used oil, auto parts, fertilizers, pesticides & pool chemicals.        recylespot.org

PROPERTY CODE VIOLATIONS

Don’t wait too long to pick up that pile of sticks, or mow the lawn, you may accidentally violate the property code ordinance.  This results in a friendly warning letter from us asking you to clean it up.  If it’s not cleaned up within the time frame specified in the letter, a citation may be issued.

Commonly issued warnings:

  • Trash, appliances, furniture left outside
     
  • Tree limbs, tall grass
     
  • Unlicensed/inoperable/unregistered vehicle
     
  • Tires, Wheels and Pallets
     
  • Outside storage of household items.
     
  • Brush piles that attract vermin
     

DON’T FALL FOR SCAMS  

They can sound so authentic and look so real but both phone and mail scams abound! The latest we’ve seen are letters mailed to individuals from what looks like the IRS. Never send money without calling the IRS, not the number on the letter.  Call the Kansas City regional office at 800-829-1040. A phone call about a relative in jail who needs you to bail them is probably a scam. Sounds real and desperate, because they know your relatives name, but it’s not! Call the jail directly at a phone number listed for that jail, not the phone number provided by the caller. If you think it may be a scam, call the police department. They can check it out. Never send money.

VEHICLE TINT

Adding tint to your car windows may seem like a good thing but like a lot of good things, too much is not good! If the factory tint and the added tint combined allow 35% or less of light transmission, then it is prohibited by state and local law. Excessive tint is illegal because it makes it hard for the driver to see and causes increased accidents. Excessively tinted windows also make it hard for police officers to look inside and observe possible threats or contraband. Sometimes used cars are purchased with excessive tint and the new owner has not idea they are in violation until an officer stop them. If you have a vision or health issue that requires the tint your doctor must write you a script that you will take to the Highway Patrol Inspection Station in Lee’s Summit and they will issue a permit. Want your car windows checked? Just stop by city hall and an officer would be happy to check!

GRASS/LEAVES IN THE STREET

With fall on its way leaves will follow. Grass and leaves blown into the street plus a little rain add up to very dangerous conditions for motorcyclists. The vegetation breaks down and becomes extremely slick. This creates the formula for a life threatening crash. Be considerate of motorcycle riders!

ALL THINGS ANIMAL  

Have you updated your dog registration yet this year?  All dogs in Oakview, over 6 months must be registered, even if you don’t own them.  If your dog gets out and we are able to pick Fido up, we can simply look at the Oakview registration tag.  No tag means we are required to take your pet to the shelter, where you may receive a citation and have to pay a fee to get Fido back. If your dog is outside it must me in a fence or you must be outside with it, either on a leash or obedient to a verbal command. You must be able to control it. Dogs that habitually bark/disturb the peace, are to be muzzled or kept indoors.

Is Fido an American Staffshire Terrier (also known as a pitbull) breed? It needs to meet our police chief within 5 days of moving to Oakview!  Owners of these dogs have specific responsibilities including special registration, collar, muzzled, kenneling, signage, and homeowner insurance.

REMINDERS

Did you get a new car?!?!  Remember to license it as Oakview.  We’ll put your tax dollars to work for you.   

Here’s another benefit of living in Oakview.  If you don’t work in KCMO, your employer shouldn’t take the 1% earnings tax out of your check.

Do you run a business from home?  An Occupational License application must be completed & returned to city hall for businesses operating in Oakview.   

Confused by the inserts in your water bill? We use KCMO Water Department for water service but those notices on trash, leaf, curbside pickup, etc. don’t apply to Oakview residents.

Need to contact us after hours, but it’s not an emergency?  Call our friendly dispatchers at (816) 792-4254.

In an emergency always call 911.

Questions, comments, or concerns?    Email us at oakview.missouri@sbcglobal.net or give us a call at City Hall - 816/436-9150.  We’re open Monday -Thursday from 10 am until 4 pm (excluding Holidays).
