The Garden Society of Wildwood - Come and Join the Fun

The Garden Society of Wildwood (GSW) is comprised of members from the West County Area interested in sharing and increasing their knowledge of gardening, both flowering and vegetable. Members typically meet in the morning on the second Monday of the month. Meetings can be comprised of outside presenters, site visits, or member speakers, some of whom have reached Master Gardeners status.

The objectives of the GSW are three fold: (1.) to protect, beautify and learn about the environment, (2.) to enjoy the friendship of fellow gardeners, and (3.) to collectively provide charitable support to local non-profit organization(s) involved in gardening. New members and guests are always welcome.

Solicitors' Licenses Recently Authorized 

There are currently Solicitors' Permits issued for the period of March 1, 2017 through March 28, 2017 for Charter Spectrum Services and Midtown Home Improvements. Given a solicitor may knock on your door, the City wants to remind you that it has ordinances that govern the rights and responsibilities of solicitors. These ordinances ensure that the City is aware of who is soliciting in our neighborhoods and that the solicitors are bound to professional conduct. 
 
Solicitors are required to obtain a permit from the City prior to approaching residents.  The application for such allows the City to collect data on the solicitor and the company they represent.  Once a permit is issued, they may solicit within the City for a 28 day period of time.  If they represent a local City of Wildwood licensed business, the permit is issued for the duration of their business license. 
 
Solicitation is permitted between the hours of 9:00 am and 8:00 pm during the months of April-October.  Solicitation hours move back to ending at 7:00 pm in the months November-March.
 
Please respond to someone at your door, with best safety precautions as your guide.  You always have the option to not answer the door, if you do not recognize the person there.  If you answer the door and are greeted by a solicitor, please request their permit, which is required to be readily supplied to you and on their person at all times of solicitation.  If the solicitation is not welcome, firmly request that they leave.  They must then immediately and peacefully leave the property.
 
If you would prefer not to be approached by solicitors, you may obtain from the City a window slick to display, which states “No Solicitors”.  The solicitors are bound by City ordinance to not even knock on your door and must leave the premises immediately upon seeing the notice.  You may obtain this No Solicitors notice at the front desk at City Hall or by email request to Colleen@cityofwildwood.com
 
If a solicitor fails to provide their City issued permit upon request, ignores your No Solicitation notice, or your request to leave, please contact the  Wildwood Police Department immediately at (636) 458-9194. It is best to make this call immediately, so the Wildwood Police Department may investigate most effectively. 

  
E-Newsletter – An Excellent Way To Be ‘In the Know’

The City of Wildwood would like to thank all of the subscribers to the e-newsletter for your interest in receiving it and hopes you find this weekly publication to be very informative and interesting.  It has been a major goal of the City to enhance citizen communications and input, and it hopes the e-newsletter has been an effective communication tool. However, the City is only reaching a small portion of the population and would like to reach many more of our citizens.  While not everyone wishes to receive yet another weekly e-mail, it is likely many citizens are unaware that the City’s weekly e-newsletter exists. Therefore, the City is asking for your assistance in sharing this opportunity to stay informed about Wildwood.  The following link will take you directly to the Subscription Section of the City Website: www.cityofwildwood.com/list.aspx. Through this link, you can subscribe to the weekly e-newsletter, as well as sign up for Traffic & Weather Alerts, News Flashes, and many other City notifications.
 
The City would also ask that you forward this notice to friends and family, or share through social media sites, and let’s see if we can grow our subscriber base and keep the citizens of our great community well-informed.
