Missouri Severe Weather Awareness Week is March 4-10

Missouri Statewide Severe Weather Drill 2018: Tuesday, March 6, 10 a.m.

The National Weather Service (NWS), the Missouri Department of Public Safety, and the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), along with Cuba Emergency Management Agency (CEMA) have declared the week of March 4 - 10, 2017 as Severe Weather Awareness Week for Missouri. The goal of the week is quite simple: SAVE LIVES. The best way to do this is by being prepared. Everyone should have a basic knowledge of severe weather safety rules and have a severe weather plan in place. Knowing what actions to take when severe weather threatens can be the difference between life and death.

Cuba City Council Notes: February 6, 2018

The Cuba City Council met in regular session at Cuba City Hall on Tuesday, February 6 to discuss the following items of city business:

• The council heard from Jason Wilkerson about a rental house he has at 506 Blunts Private Drive that has a tree in the back yard, with branches touching electric utility wires. There is some concern over its safety, and Wilkerson asked to have the city address that issue before a family moves into the home. A small brush pile will have to be moved to provide the city with access to the property. Public Works Director Bob Baldwin said he would take care of the matter. “I would like to get this fixed – the sooner, the better,” said Wilkerson.

Next city marshal to be paid $60k, plus benefits

No matter who wins the city marshal election in April, he will be paid $60,000 per year for his entire four-year term of office, along with receiving the full benefits entitled to City of Cuba employees.

Animal Control’s Facebook page taken down, but now back up again

After having its Facebook page removed for a week, Cuba Animal Control’s page is back on the social media platform again. The Cuba MO Animal Control page mysteriously disappeared overnight last week, leaving the animal shelter without its main online hub for sharing information related to animal adoptions. Until the matter was resolved on Wednesday, the shelter used an alternate Facebook page for sharing its animals available for adoption.
