NS. CHARLES COUNTY, MO. – Residents of the Heritage Subdivision near St. Peters came to St. Charles County Council for help with serious problems in the neighborhood.
Some serious problems include a sinking house that has caused damage to neighboring homes, a storm sewer that has been out of order for a year without being repaired, and besides, there is a terrible water drainage problem that is affecting the neighborhood.
More than 100 people attended the council meeting, with several speakers speaking and asking the council for help in solving the problem.
Fox’s Elliot Davis first spoke to Steve Ehlmann, St. Charles County’s highest elected chairman, about the issues.
Ehlmann said the district will do everything in its power to help the residents. He added that while the county faces some limits, he will do whatever he can.
Many local residents say the county has fallen to work. The county condemned the sinking house more than a year ago, but it still hasn’t been demolished and continues to cause problems as the floor weakens.
Ehlmann says the county may have to demolish the house at the end of the day. He also said officials would work with the homeowners association to see what could be done about the other problems at Heritage.
