Dear Old Town Clayton Neighbors,

1. Message from Alderman Alex Berger:

"Annually the Board of Alderman nominates citizens for membership to various Boards and Commissions. This year Steve Lichtenfeld and I are seeking citizens to apply for the Ecology and Environmental Awareness Committee and the Art Commission. June Waters, the Clayton City Clerk, can be contacted for applications. You can call her at (314) 290-8460 or email her at jwaters@ci.clayton.mo.us If you know of someone who might be interested in either the EEAC or Art Commission please urge them to apply. Thank you in advance for any help you can give us." - Alex Berger III, Ward III Alderman
