Byrnes Mill Police Department to host its Annual “National Night Out”

The Byrnes Mill Police Department would like to extend an open invitation to the citizens of the City of Byrnes to participate in its Annual National Night Out event at Spring Hills Presbyterian Church located at 6247 Upper Byrnes Mill Rd., on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm.  There is absolutely no charge to attend this event. It is free and open to the public.

This family event is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community relationships, and send a firm message to criminals, letting them know that our community is organized and will FIGHT BACK!

Last year’s National Night Out campaign involved local residents, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,704 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. In all, over 37.5 million people participated in National Night Out 2012. Locally, we had a great turn out for last year’s event in Byrnes Mill and we anticipate this annual event to be the biggest yet!

Activities will include a truck show from Land Of The Giants, police, fire and ambulance vehicles, a dunking booth, donations sponsored by Wal-Mart, and hot dogs, BBQ sandwiches, and sides sponsored by Company B Barbecue. Thank you to Wal-Mart and Company B Barbecue for their kind donations and support of this fantastic event.

Other public safety departments and organizations, including High Ridge Fire Department, North Jefferson County Ambulance District, Big River Ambulance District, and 911 Dispatch, will have static displays and personnel on hand to answer questions.

Other vendors include: Spring Hills Presbyterian Church, Jefferson County P.R.I.D.E., Comtrea, Land of the Giants, Highway 30 Towing, and Sunny Hill Inc.
The public is invited to bring lawn chairs and enjoy a great evening. Again, the event is completely free.

For more information, please contact Chief Gary Dougherty at 636-677.7727.

 
OPERATION CLEAN STREAM ANNUAL BIG RIVER CLEAN-UP
 

The Annual Big River clean-up, an Open Space Council project, will take place on Saturday August 23th. Our Clean Stream Team will be meeting at Byrnes Mill Park parking lot at 8:30am. We will shuttle our boats and canoes to the put-in point at Rockford Beach at the Hwy W Bridge Big River access. The team will float down to Byrnes Mill Park gathering tires, cans, bottles, trash and anything else that doesn’t belong in the river. We’ll float a little over a mile and a half which takes about 3 to 3 ½ hours. Once our treasures are unloaded, volunteers will enjoy a light lunch at the park, compliments of Grand Slam Sports Bar & Grill.

We are always looking for additional volunteers and boats. Jon boats work best, but canoes and kayaks are also useful. Take advantage of this opportunity to meet friends and neighbors while making a difference in the environment of your community. We have T-shirts and gloves for everyone who registers early. If you are interested in helping please call Jim McBroom at 314-623-9919.  Wear clothing you can get wet and dirty. Bring drinking water and sun screen. You will be surprised how beautiful the Big River can be.

For those of you who prefer to keep your feet on land, there is another group of volunteers working to clean the upstream and downstream shorelines near the park. This group also meets at Byrnes Mill Park around 8:30am. T-shirts, gloves, snacks and refreshments will also be provided for all volunteers who register early. If you’re interested in donating a few hours to beautify the Big River call Scott Darrough at 314-560-1335. This is an excellent youth group activity.

 

Jefferson County Road Tax Renewal

Providing safe and dependable roads for Byrnes Mill and County residents
 

The County Road Tax was first passed in 1986. With the growth of the County then, it was realized that we would have to be able to improve our local transportation system in order to keep up with the needs for better roads. Today, the growth or our county continues and the need for a safe and dependable local transportation system is still a priority.


With the County Road Tax, the City and County have improved city streets, paved roads, and upgraded water crossing into bridges. Without the Road tax the City of Byrnes Mill and the County will not be able to fund road and bridge projects. Over time this will result in poor pavement conditions on heavily traveled roads, conversion back to gravel on low volume roads, inability to replace critically deficient bridges which causes loss of accessibility and connectivity of our communities.


Facts of the Tax:
* One-half of one-percent county-wide sales tax
* Road Tax was passed in 1986 and renewed in 1998
* Placed on August 5, 2014 primary election ballot as Proposition S
* Road Tax is due to sunset on September 30, 2016, if not renewed for another 15-years
* Shared between unincorporated and incorporated Jefferson County equitably based on Road Tax sharing formula
* Road Tax sharing formula is based on 50% roadway miles and 50% on population
* Used to maintain and improve more than 1,000 miles of two-lane roads and about 200 bridges in cities and County
* Generated approximately $10,215,000 in FY2013 for road and bridge improvements in the County
* A substantial portion of the Road Tax revenue is used by Cities and the County to secure 80/20 federally funded road and bridge improvements
* Use of this Road Tax source as local match allowed for $10,918,170 in additional federal funding in FY2013
