Cabin Fever Hike - 2016 - Along the Meramec River

The 2016 City of Wildwood Cabin Fever Hike is scheduled for Saturday, February 27, 2016. Mother Nature can sometimes exert influence over this event, but when she allows us to proceed, it is a great way to spend a Saturday morning!! Several hiking options can be chosen by registrants on the morning of the hike, sharing routes up to nine (9) miles, or explore the area on your own and trek any distance you wish! It is a great opportunity to gain some perspective on the recent flooding, realizing the trails you will be exploring were 12 to 15 feet underwater a few short weeks ago! Or how about the fact the 194 foot bridge crossing the Hamilton-Carr Creek was COMPLETELY submerged! 

REGISTRATION FOR THE CABIN FEVER HIKE BEGINS ON JANUARY 25, 2016 through the City of Wildwood's website. Please note the event is free, BUT REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. The event will have a rolling check-in/start time.

The Shoeman Water Project Shoe Drive Continues at City Hall

Thanks to everyone who has donated shoes, boots and sandals to the Shoeman Water Project.  The donation boxes are located at City Hall, 16860 Main Street, in the 1st Floor Foyer.  We appreciate everyone’s support of this worthwhile organization.  To learn more about the Shoeman Water Project, visit www.shoemanwater.org/.

Recycling Grant Provides Optional Larger Recycling Carts

If you find the 65 gallon cart to be too small for your weekly recyclables, please call Meridian Waste Services, at (314) 291-3131, and request one of the larger recycling carts.  Meridian will replace your 65 gallon recycling cart, with a new 95 gallon recycle cart, AT NO CHARGE (the old carts cannot be utilized for anything, but recycling, and will be redistributed to those needing the smaller carts).  Since quantities are limited, the larger carts will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Holiday Light Recycling

The City of Wildwood is pleased to once again partner with Meridian Waste Services’ holiday light recycling program.  No longer wanted strands of holiday lights may be placed in the dumpster supplied for this specific purpose at the end of Wildwood Avenue, which is located just to the east of the Wildwood Municipal Building.  Please do not place light strands in your regular trash, as they become tangled in the equipment at the landfills.  Please do not place them in the curbside recycling containers, since they will not be accepted in the weekly pickup.  Please help keep the City of Wildwood the eco-friendly city we are known to be by placing those unwanted light strands in the appropriate dumpster on Wildwood Avenue.

American Flag Disposal

The City of Wildwood accepts retired American flags for dignified disposal.  Please bring worn flags to City Hall, 16860 Main Street, and leave them with the receptionist.  All flags collected will be relinquished to the Boy Scouts of America for proper disposal.  US Flags should never be placed in the trash.

MSD Caulks Creek Trunk Sewer - Phase 1

The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) is beginning a major construction project to build a new sanitary sewer which will benefit many Wildwood residents.  The Caulks Creek Trunk Sewer, Phase I project will replace existing undersized trunk sewers, alleviate building backups and eliminate existing overcharged sanitary sewers.  The project consists of 3.1 miles (16,225 feet) of 8-inch to 36-inch sanitary relief sewers starting near the intersection of Church Road and Kehrs Mill Road.  The project extends to the south, generally following the alignment of Caulks Creek, to its ending point in Wildwood’s Anniversary Park (north side of Clayton Road near the intersection of Clayton Road and Strecker Road).  The project includes two separate side collection systems which extend into the Quaethem Farms Estates Subdivision to provide improved service to the homes in that subdivision. 
 
Construction is scheduled to begin in February of 2016 with completion anticipated by early in summer of 2018.
