GOING ON VACATION
Or a business trip? Stop by city hall or email the clerk. Fill out a vacation sheet and the PD will keep an eye on your home while you’re gone.
Mow Tall and let the Clippings Fall
The heat of summer is here! July and August heat causes stress on grass. The benefits to mowing taller (3-4 inches) and a sharp blade creates a healthier plant with a deeper root system as well as reduces annual weeds. You can return up to 30 percent of your seasonal nitrogen as well as 50 percent of your seasonal potassium if you allow the clippings to fall. It also helps with water retention when it rains.
Trustee Craig Hill is working on documentation of storm water issues in the village. If you have info and/or photos of how a heavy rain affects your property please email it to or drop it by the office.
PROPERTY CODE VIOLATIONS
Don’t wait too long to pick up that pile of sticks, or mow the lawn, you may be in violation of 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 vehicles
• Tires, Wheels and Pallets
• Outside storage of household items.
• Brush piles that attract vermin
STANDING WATER = MOSQUITOES!
The buzzing is annoying, the bites sting, and they spread disease! Mosquitoes need only a small amount of water to lay and hatch their eggs. Standing water in tires, buckets, cans, wheelbarrows, even flower pots can become breeding grounds. No standing water-
no buzzing mosquitoes!
We have been blessed with beautiful weather this spring but summer is here and with it comes the heat. If you have elderly neighbors keep an eye out for them. It’s just the neighborly thing to do! If you have any concerns or notice something out of the ordinary, call for a residence check. Our officers are happy to help.
ALL THINGS ANIMAL
If you find a sick animal, domestic or wild, do not attempt to help the animal yourself, please call the police. A bite from an animal can mean a series of rabies shots and a tetanus shot, and antibiotics, they hurt!
Have you updated your dog registration yet this year? It is required for 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.
If your dog is outside and not within a fenced yard, you must be responsible and keep them on a leash. Dogs that habitually bark/disturb the peace, are to be muzzled or kept indoors.
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.
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.
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.
Questions, comments, or concerns? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at City Hall - 816/436-9150. We’re open Monday -Thursday from 10 am until 4 pm (excluding Holidays). Need to contact the PD after hours? Don’t leave an urgent message on our answering machine. Call our friendly dispatchers at (816) 792-4254. In an emergency always call 911.
