Mayor’s Message

Friends and Neighbors,

In order to protect the safety of our residents and keep Wildwood government functioning seamlessly in light of St. Louis County orders and US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we have taken the following actions relative to COVID-19:

  1. We will continue holding our City Council and Planning & Zoning Commission meetings, and members of those bodies now have the option to participate remotely by video- or tele-conferencing.
  2. Council meeting room occupancy will be limited in accordance with CDC-recommended social distancing guidelines. The livestreaming of our meetings started in 2017 is a great tool we’re now using for this situation - overflow meeting attendees can choose to watch the meeting by livestream in our Community Room, and our residents can always watch all our public meetings by livestream instead of attending in person.
  3. All seating for the Council and other commission and board members, as well as public seating, will be rearranged consistent with CDC recommended 6-foot distancing.
  4. We are pursuing the cancellation of all non-essential meetings of our other boards, commissions and committees, along with upcoming events having more than 10 attendees, through at least April 30, 2020 (and potentially through May 31, 2020, depending upon further governmental direction).
  5. I will be asking the City Council to authorize me to act as to any unanticipated issues relating to the COVID-19 situation.

You’re our greatest Wildwood asset, so please take measures to protect yourself and other Wildwood residents though following the six-foot social distancing guidelines, staying at home, hand washing, and covering your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing.

Mayor Jim Bowlin

Trash, Recycling & Yard Waste Pickup

Waste Connections trash and recycling services will continue as usual and on the regular schedule. Waste Connections has also requested that all trash be bagged. While Waste Connections has suspended yard waste pickup for a portion of their service area, at this time, that does not include Wildwood. Therefore, yard waste pickup will continue as scheduled.

Yard Waste Update - Posted 5/29/2020

Due to a temporary reduction in personnel because of COVID 19, Waste Connections may be one (1) day behind on yard waste in the coming weeks. Please leave it out at the regularly scheduled time and Waste Connections will pick up on the scheduled day or the day after, including working on Saturday, if that is needed.  If you feel your street or address has been missed for more than two (2) days, please contact Waste Connections at (636) 321-2100 or
