Learn about Prop E







At their January 16th meeting, the Board of Aldermen approved placing Proposition E on the April 3rd ballot.  This Proposition is to authorize a 1/2 percent sales tax which can be used only for police facility and equipment costs, bridge and roadway infrastructure improvements, as well as flood control measures.  Throughout the next several weeks this webpage will be updated with additional information.

City of Eureka named 10th Safest City in MO

The City of Eureka was named 10th Safest City in MO by the National Council for Safety and Security.

To identify the safest cities in Missouri, they reviewed the most recent FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics along with their own population data and internal research. They eliminated any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI and removed cities with populations under 10,000.

The remaining cities were ranked based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) and property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft) per 1,000 people. These variables were then weighted, with violent crimes accounting for 1.5 of the total (due to their severity) than property crimes.

CERT Classes Forming

Community Emergency Response Team Training (CERT) is a series of classes that prepares the participant to help them self, their family, coworkers, and neighbors in the event of a crisis in their community. Through this interesting eight-week series of classes participants learn about emergency preparedness and receive training in basic response skills such as fire safety, team organization, terrorism, disaster psychology, disaster preparedness, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations. Once participants have completed the eight classes they will conclude with a full-scale disaster exercise (off-campus) that will put what they have learned to work in a real-life tornado simulation. Once complete the participant will be able to join a local St. Louis Area CERT program to continue supporting helping in times where volunteers are needed.

Winter Weather Predicted Thursday Night 1/12 – Info on What to do if the Storm Knocks out Power to Your Business or Home

Ameren Missouri continues to keep a close eye on the weather predicted for this weekend, working with their partners at Quantum Weather, and other agencies, to prepare for freezing rain, wind and ice.  At this time, we are told total accumulations in the St. Louis Metro area could be between .1″ and .15″ by mid-morning on Saturday.  It only takes about a quarter to a half inch of ice to begin causing problems with power lines and trees, and our crews are preparing to safely expedite the restoration process, if outages occur.

In the event of a power outage, please report the outage immediately! 

  • Call us at Ameren Missouri at 1-800-552-7583 immediately.  Be sure to include a number where we may reach you for updates.
  • Visit our website,, to report an outage, check the status of an outage, check an outage map to view the status of power restoration throughout the state, and sign up for text alerts.
  • Text REG to 40401, to register for text alerts, report an outage, estimated restoration times, and more.

Stay Safe!

  • Downed wires can be covered in tree debris and hard to see.  Stay away from brush and tall grass that could be hiding a downed power wire.  Be sure to keep pets away as well.  Report downed wires to 1-800-552-7583 immediately, and do not go near the wire.
  • Please keep all pets inside or leashed in the yard so our crews can work safely and efficiently to restore power.  Crews often have to walk through backyards to access downed equipment.
  • Ameren Missouri’s system is designed with redundancy – duplicate systems that function in case of an outage.  In many cases, we can re-route power to restore customers’ service while we continue to repair affected lines.
  • Prepare your Emergency supply kit: emergency phone numbers, flashlight and fresh batteries, battery-powered radio, bottled water (1 gallon per person, per day, including pets), first aid kit, blankets, non-perishable food.

If the Power Goes Out

  • Turn off lights and unplug appliances to prevent damage and overloading circuits once the power is restored.
  • Keep faucets on at a drip to prevent pipes from freezing.
  • Close doors to unused rooms in the house.
  • Be cautious when using alternative heat sources and keep rooms properly ventilated.
  • If using a generator, be sure to keep the unit outside the home.
  • Ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) for electrical outlets can help prevent injuries when installed in areas that may be affected by melting snow or ice.  You can also purchase portable GFCIs for your emergency supply kit.

Safety Tips for Pokemon Go Enthusiasts

Many of you have heard of Pokémon Go, but for those who have not, it is a type of Geo Caching game where you find and capture Pokémon characters at various locations.

If you use this app (or other similar apps) or have children that do we encourage you to do the following:

  1. Watch out for your surroundings: Look up and be aware of who is around you besides Pokemon
  2. Parents limit places kids can go: Set boundaries to avoid stranger danger for kids unattended
  3. Don’t Pokemon Go and drive: Catching Pikachu isn’t worth crashing
  4. Tell people where you’re going if it is somewhere you’ve never been
  5. Don’t trespass: People might call the police if you enter private property and your Pokemon can’t help you
  6. Remember to follow rules in public places such as Eureka City Parks.  Parks open at dawn. (Except Kircher Park which opens at 7:00 a.m.) All Parks close at dusk (except West Frisco which closes at 2:00 a.m.) Failing to follow these rules could result in a summons as well as putting your safety at risk.
