Comments by the Executive Director: None Edited 2/10/20 Pg. 4 Comments from the Public: 1. Robert Kenkel – 16199 Clayton – Hollow Lane Wildwood MO 63005. Mr. Kenkel addressed the board regarding the billing practices of MSD. Mr. Kenkel wanted to know how a new homeowner is charged a bill based off the billing schedule implemented by MSD if they have not been in the home long enough. Mr. Kenkel argued that billing for new homeowners are unable to change and that the homeowner must wait for a year to correct. Mr. Kenkel s tated he brought his own bills and asked for assistance with trying to figure out his billing and suggested trigger words to be included in the customer service response practices to elevate concerns to legal or upper management The Director of Finance was asked to speak with Mr. Kenkel further to discuss his billing issues. 2. David Mayer –2806 Yaeger Road and Hollow Oak Ct. Mr. Mayer addressed the Board again about the continued severe water conditions at his home. Mr. Mayer ment ioned he received a letter from MSD explaining his circumstances, but believes that the responsibility to correct still lies with MSD. Mr. Mayer provided a copy of the letter from MSD to the Board. The Executive Director notified the Board that a copy of t he same letter was sent to them in December. Mr. Mayer stated the water flows like a river into his yard and has washed away dirt exposing electrical wires preventing his children from access to their backyard. Mr. Mayer also mentioned that he has received a notice from the County to fix his fence due to deteriorating conditions, but he states that he is unable to do so until something is done about the water. Mr. Mayer again repeated that he has cracks in his homes foundation and water continues to enter his home, but since his basement has been empty, he has not acquired additional material damage. Mr. Mayer indicated that flooding has been an issue from 40 years ago that was never resolved and asked when his property could be re-scored and be placed at the top of the list. Mr. Mayer also asked if his issue would be considered a new project or an existing project from 1978? The Executive Director explained that there was funding for a short period of time for high priority projects in the 2008 timeframe but the funding was eliminated through a Supreme Court ruling. The District sought new funding from the public in 2018, but the initiative was not supported. The Executive Director explained that they will do further investigation and that, Rich Unverferth, Director of Engineering, will get back to Mr. Mayer and will report back the Board, but at this time there simply isn’t any funding to address flooding in this area.
