A Big Thank You to Wentzville’s First Responders
November is the perfect time to stop and think about the things we are thankful for. I for one am very thankful for the men and women of the Wentzville Police Department, the Wentzville Fire Protection District and St. Charles County Ambulance District who risk their lives on a daily basis to protect and serve the residents in our community. It is with great pride that I work side by side with many of these heroes and I can’t say “thank you” enough.
Many times, while we are comfortable in our homes, sitting down to dinner with our families, or enjoying a night’s sleep, first responders are out risking life and limb to help others in our community.
While we cannot remove the dangers that come with serving in these capacities, our local first responders know this, accept this and still continue to serve. Wentzville’s first responders are humble public servants and they don’t ask for much, but we must continually think of them and their sacrifices. So thank you! Thank you to the firefighters. Thank you to the police officers. Thank you to the paramedics and EMS teams. Thank you for protecting me, my family, my constituents, my friends, my staff and each other. And, above all, thank you for putting the lives of others above your own.
Swing by the Law Enforcement Center at 1019 Schroeder Creek Blvd., and thank the police officers; make a quick stop at a local fire station or EMS station and get to know the men and women who sacrifice their safety to protect yours. You don’t have to empty your wallet to show them you care — a simple “thank you” will have a bigger impact than you might think. So when you see your local first responders give them a wave because without them the world would be a much different place.
Once again, on behalf of myself as Mayor of Wentzville, my constituents and my staff, I would like to give a big “THANK YOU” for all you do for our community!
New City Hall Celebrates One Year Anniversary!
It’s hard to believe we’ve been in our new facility for more than 12 months. City Hall now includes staff from municipal court, finance/utility billing, human resources, administration, procurement, economic development, community development, parks and recreation administration and more. By combining five different locations into one, the City is better able to serve our residents. Stop by and see us. We are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is also utility bill drop box that is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The box is located just outside the main doors. If you have any questions, please call City Hall at (636) 327-5101. Don’t forget, my door is always open! Stop by and see me at City Hall or join one of my Coffee with the Mayor meetings.
