PROPERTY CODE VIOLATIONS

Winter is over and spring is here!

PHONE SCAMS   

Here are 2 of the latest! Your gas or electric bill is overdue, send money now or be shut off.  Warrant service from a county court. They send you texts and call! You’ll know it’s a scam if they ask for any personal identifiers such as date of birth, social security number or bank info. Not sure who you are speaking with? Hang up!


DOG TAGS

Please bring a copy of the records to city hall. It costs nothing, but is required of all dogs over 6 months.  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.

Is Fido an American or Stafford bull 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, which are all required to receive a dog tag.

REMINDERS

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

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.

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.


NON-EMERGENCY PHONE NUMBER
