More Frivolous Wildwood Complaints Dismissed- An important institution is being abused for political

Recently, the Attorney General of Missouri dismissed two complaints that the City of Wildwood had violated the Sunshine Law. But not before Missouri and Wildwood taxpayers were tapped for additional funds. The cost of such complaints by now most likely far exceed the count of $30,000 dollars that was tabulated by the city as the cost of these quixotic claims. All these accusations have collapsed for a lack of evidence. A vast majority of these salacious allegations have been made by a small group of anti-mayor Bowlin activists; a group that includes the wife of former Mayor and current council member Tim Woerther. Mrs. Woerther has penned thousands of dollars worth of these missives hers

Culvert Correction Complete!

On Friday the 13th, Missouri American Water completed the fix to the precariously eroded water main at the intersection of Thunder Head Canyon and Westglen Farms Drive. The relatively quick but apparently thorough fix came after council member Joe Garritano shared a Wildwood Matters story about the pipe with an executive of Missouri American Water.

"Get It Done Joe" Gets It Done Again

Less than twenty four hours ago, Wildwood Matters posted a story about what appeared to be a precariously exposed water-main hanging in a washout left in a Caulk's Creek tributary by recent storms. The huge pipe was not visible from the road, but Wildwood Matters posted the story and contacted Missouri American Water. That said, the company seemed rather agnostic about the urgency of the situation. That was until Joe Garritano, Councilman from Ward 8 shared the Wildwood Matters post with an executive at Missouri American Water during a Missouri Municipal League meeting. Today, at least six trucks, including a huge excavator and about a dozen workmen showed up at the intersection of Westgle
