Tony Wagner, Director of Public works, shares an important update, below, about a Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) Project - called - Project Clear.


Please note that Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD), will be in our community beginning this week, inspecting private drains at properties located in our city.  Please do not be alarmed!  We were notified of this "fieldwork" which is part of Project Clear, a Sewer Improvement Program.


The representatives are working on behalf of the company called ABNA Engineering, Inc.


This firm was hired by Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD).   They will be wearing badges, ID cards and florescent vests.  You may see them walking in yards, around homes, and checking downspouts, manholes, drains, and other connections to sewer systems.


If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact any member of the evaluation team you see in your neighborhood (or) you may contact their supervisor, Deborah Dilworth, by calling: 314-454-0222 x1146 or sending her an email to:


Additionally, please also feel free to contact the City of Shrewsbury, City Hall, at 314-647-5795, if you wish to do so.


Thank you for helping our City of Shrewsbury be a successful participant in the MSD Project Clear program.

City Celebrates Paying Off the

           City Center Bond



  Shrewsbury 2018 Citizen of the Year

 Mayor Buckley had this to say "I nominated

  Rick Steingruby because he has a spirit of

  giving in all that he does. Rick has served

  the community as alderman since 2013.

  Along with his responsibilities as Alderman,

  Rick has shared his knowledge as a "Master

  gardener” with the City of Shrewsbury. Rick

  has dedicated numerous hours to selecting,

  planting, and maintaining trees and shrubs

  around our community. He is an active

  member of his church where he sings in the

  choir. Rick has also been committed to

  fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis

  foundation. He has cycled more than a

  hundred miles, raising thousands of dollars

  to find a cure to this debilitating disease.

  But most importantly, Rick has been a

  loving husband to his wife Mary and a

  devoted father to his children; Luke, Stuart,

  Carrie and Aidan. We are pleased to call him

  neighbor and proud to name him Citizen of

  the Year."
