Revolutionary War Soldier's Grave To Be Preserved in Cottleville 

The City of Cottleville recently partnered with Lombardo Homes to preserve the Pitman Cemetery located in the new Legacy of Patriots Ridge subdivision at 6320 Highway N. A gate and fencing will be erected around the Pitman Cemetery as well as adding walkway access and parking.  The Daughters of the American Revolution are planning an initial cemetery clean up and tombstone repair, however the City plans to ensure proper care of the cemetery going forward through the HOA agreements.
John Pitman was born March 14, 1753, in Bedford County, Virginia. During the Revolutionary War, Pitman served in the Virginia and Kentucky Militia. In 1810, Pitman purchased the George Hoffman Farm along the Dardenne Creek.  It was said Pitman was a clear-thinking, hard-working farmer whose judgment was respected.  In 1812, Congress made the Territory of Missouri to avoid confusion with the recently admitted state of Louisiana. Congress authorized the voters to elect a territorial legislature composed of a House of Representatives and a Council. John Pitman and Robert Spencer were elected to represent the people of the District (County) of St. Charles in the 13 member House of Representatives. Well known for his integrity, John Pitman was selected to serve in several other positions including; grand juror, tobacco inspector and commissioned as 
a colonel in the state militia.  John Pitman died January 1, 1839 at the age of 85 and was buried in the Pitman Cemetery located in what is now known as Cottleville.

Friend and Coworker Remembered
It is with our deepest sympathy that we announce that our friend and coworker, Jay Douglas Diekmann has passed away today, February 24, 2017 after battling cancer. During 2005-2006 Jay served Cottleville through a volunteer program with Ford Motor Company. Jay was later hired as a full time employee on January 1, 2007 as the City's Building Inspector as well as performing most of the parks and public works maintenance.  Jay was well known in the Cottleville community. It was often remarked Jay never met a stranger and was frequently seen patrolling the City in his work truck.  Jay was known around City Hall for sharing duck tales, big buck stories, his quest for finding morels each spring and often frying some up for us. He also shared stories of the boating fun he enjoyed with his family. He will be deeply missed.

Free Test My Teen Kits 

City of Cottleville and parents unite against substance abuse!
The City of Cottleville recently announced a new alliance with TestMyTeen.com, an organization that has donated free home drug test kit vouchers to be shared anonymously with parents who need them. Use code 6F6K1 to get your free kit shipped to you. Think your teen may be "experimenting" with drugs, alcohol or tobacco? 
It's best to solve problems before they occur or get much worse. Unfortunately, "friends" often try harder to make kids who say "no" to drugs, alcohol and tobacco feel like outcasts. Home testing kits have emerged that protect privacy and provide kids with a socially acceptable excuse such as, "My parents test me".  For years, police have been the first to know when local kids used drugs while their parents were often the last to know. Now there is a way to REVERSE that trend!
Test My Teen Kits Free for Cottleville Residents
with special voucher code.

Kountz Fort Trail Update

The Cottleville Parks and Recreation Department has finished reconstructing the walking surface of the trail. It now has a rock base with screenings on top which provide a smooth walking surface. Additional improvements coming to the trail include benches, trash cans, pet waste stations, and educational signage. Improvements to the trail head/entrance area at Brittany Cove Drive will include split rail fencing, asphalt, and informational signage. The Kountz Fort Trail area has been added to the Mission Clean Stream project for trash and debris clean up on  April 1st. To volunteer for Mission Clean Stream contact  lindsay.jones@cityofcottleville.com.
Also, the City has recently applied for additional funding from the Recreational Trail Program administered by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources in order to asphalt pave the entire trail from Brittany Cove Drive to Legacy Park. Grant recipients will be announced in late 2017.
The Kountz Fort Trail travels through the wooded area behind Brittany Place Subdivision and into the back of Legacy Park connecting to the current trail that runs along the Dardenne Creek. The City previously provided a graded, mulched, and tree lined trail in 2015. However, the historic 2015 December flood took its toll on those improvements. This new rock surface will be more of a hard surface that should better facilitate walking, biking and the flooding that occurs in this area.

Plans Continue
