Hello Fellow Residents of Ward 6! It is my pleasure to serve as your representative on the St. Charles City Council.
Here are a few highlights of things happening in our City that I wanted to share with you:
Meals on Wheels
In 2015 we began offering City of St. Charles utility customers a voluntary way to donate to our Meals on Wheels Program directly from their utility bills. I am hoping you will join us in helping this vital program continue in the City of St. Charles. Both residents and businesses can contribute and make a difference!
The Meals on Wheels program in the City of St. Charles delivers a hot, nutritious meal Monday through Friday during the lunch hour. The City’s Senior Center currently serves about 150 meals per day to those in our area. But, they are serving much more than a meal. Meals on Wheels also provides much-needed contact for seniors who are alone during the day. The voluntary financial support for the program from utility customers will help the City of St. Charles continue the current program of providing hot, nutritious meals on a daily basis for our family members, friends and neighbors.
To sign up, contact the City’s finance staff at 636-949-3212
Truman Road Project
Truman Road Reconstruction Project will replace the pavement along Truman Road from West Clay Street to the Southern Approach Slab for the Railroad Bridge (north of Ehlmann Rd.). This project has been split into 2 phases. Truman Road Reconstruction Phase 1 is from West Clay Street to Point West Blvd. The project includes a new 5’ wide sidewalk along the south side of the roadway and a new 10’ shared use path to accommodate bicycle traffic along the north side. Phase 1 includes raising Truman Road at West Clay Street to improve the sight distance at the intersection. The project improves safety, ADA pedestrian and bicycle accessibility, and replaces pavement in poor condition.

Foundry Art Center
The City of St. Charles is a City full of history, new development, and a variety of great entertainment options. But, did you know it is also home to a wonderful art center? The Foundry Art Center. As a vibrant home to the arts, the Foundry Art Centre raises awareness and appreciation of the arts throughout the region. Alive with activity, the Centre’s programming reinforces the importance of the arts and helps ensure that arts and culture remain vital. Artists, patrons, young people and the community at large continually find new ways to interact at this unique facility.
The Foundry is home to exhibitions, studio artists, performances, special events and education programs for both adults and children. Learn more about this wonderful hidden gem in our city at the Foundy website
Please know that I am always here for the residents. Please take time to call or email if you have any questions. Remember I work for you, the residents of Ward 6 and I am here to serve.
Best wishes, Jerry
