The Oak Meyers Garden Association has worked with Compost Connection to establish Friday, October 18 and Friday, December 13 as 2019 yard waste collection dates to supplement the City of Kansas City Collection dates.
Yard waste route service will begin at 7:00 a.m on the two days and there is a limit of 20 items per day. Additional details on materials that can be picked up are available on the following flyer.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact a OMG Board member or Compost Connection customer service 816-761-8300.
As part of efforts to improve and beautify the homes association, Oak Meyer Gardens representatives have been working on submitting proposals to the city to improve streets, curbs, sidewalks, and monuments. More information is on the Infrastructure Work page.
Oak Meyer Gardens has an adult social coming up on Friday, September 27. No need to have an excuse to get together, but we have a great one. Many of you know “Joe the Mailman”. He is retiring after serving a good portion of our neighborhood for 26 years. His last day to deliver mail is October 5. Joe Mereghetti and his wife, Bonnie, will be our special guests. We hope you can attend and wish him well. We do encourage those who live on the streets he serves to combine resources for nice gifts or gift cards. (Joe loves golf and Crown Royal.) I am sure he would appreciate individual cards of congratulations as well. Our September Social will be at BKS Ale at Holmes and 63rd Street. BKS Ale has expanded its space and its hours. We will be meeting for a 5:00-7:00 happy hour in their new space. The first 30 adults from OMG who attend will get a free beer.
Please take a stroll around the neighborhood. Your dues and the Board have been at work updating and reconstructing a pair of end cap monuments. The stone pedestals and statues at 66th and Cherry have been updated; the pedestals have been repaired and topped with limestone caps, and the Jack and Jill statues have been cleaned.
The end result makes for a lasting and improved impression of our Oak Meyer Gardens Neighborhood. The island at 69th Street and Cherry is getting a face-lift as well. We will have photos of this soon.
We are working on many exciting projects over the next few months and will provide periodic updates here on the Website and in the Acorn newsletter. Let us know what you think!
