By executive order of Missouri Governor Parson, the April 7th Municipal Election was postponed to June 2nd, in response to COVID-19. We've been patient for 2 months and now we can finally vote!
Oakview's election location has changed from last year. It is St. Charles Borromeo Church at 900 Shady Lane. The polls will open at 6 AM and close at 7 PM.
The Village of Oakview has 2 items on the ballot:
Two current trustees signed up to run. Gary Crispin and Laura Russell. Michael Kitchens has registered as a write-in.
The 30 cent levy is called Proposition 1.The statutes for the State of Missouri limit funding sources available for villages, and stipulates how often residents must renew them by ballot. Every 4 years this must be put on the ballot for renewal. 2004 was the first year the voters approved this levy and it has been renewed every 4 years since. It funds the general fund which pays for most of the expenses we incur as a village, including Police Department expenses. One plus to it being general fund income is it can be used for other things, such as road work and paying Gladstone for fire and ambulance services. This proposition requires 2/3 majority vote to pass.
The ballot language for Proposition 1 reads as follows:
"Shall the Village of Oakview continue to collect the existing levy of 30 cents on each 100 dollars in assessed valuation of property within the Village of Oakview for General Fund purposes for a period of 4 years?"
Please feel free to email or call me if you have any questions. I'm in the office from 10 AM to 4 PM Monday thru Thursday.
Please exercise your right to vote!

The KCMO notices regarding additional trash pickups you see on the news does not apply to Oakview residents. We have a separate contract with WCA.
HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE
Need to properly dispose of household chemicals or paint? www.recyclespot.org
CONSIDERING SOME CONSTRUCTION THIS SPRING?
A deck, patio, addition, or garage? If so, check with city hall first! Exterior home improvements most likely require a permit. The entire permitting process can take several weeks so apply ASAP. Remember, building permits expire after 6 months!
Changes to the Pet Ordinance
Due to the Stay at Home Order, the board is holding meetings remotely. State statutes require at least 3 board members to be present in an open meeting to adopt an ordinance. So this will be placed on hold until the board can meet in person again.
PROPERTY CODE VIOLATIONS
Winter is over and spring is here! Don’t wait to pick up that pile of sticks, 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. Take advantage of the yard waste pickup. Up to 7 bags or bundles weekly starting March 1.
KCMO Water Department Rate Increase
Effective May 1, our water rates will be $24.05 monthly service charge and $9.73 per ccf of water consumption for residential, and $9.11 per ccf of water consumption for commercial.
POLICE DEPARTMENT NEWS
If you see something that doesn’t look right, say something! Please lock your doors! Find us on FACEBOOK at Oakview Police Department.
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, photos, collar, muzzled, kenneling, signage, and homeowner insurance, which are all required to receive a dog tag.
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
If you need to talk to a police officer but you don’t feel it is an emergency, you can reach the dispatcher at 816 792-4254. In an emergency always call 911.
Have a neighbor who lives alone?
