    License Renewals Business, dog and liquor license renewals will be in the mail soon. Business licenses expire June 1st and license holders may be subject to a late fee if not renewed by July 1st. Liquor licenses expire July 1st and the establishments are requested to have the building inspections scheduled and completed prior to the deadline. Any businesses that operate in the city limits and sell products for future delivery or provide a service of any kind are required to obtain a business license even if the physical loca-tion of the business is not in Warrensburg.

    Summer months are a busy time for lawn services, tree trimming and asphalt repair in which case, require a city business li-cense. Solicitor licenses that canvass door to door and ice cream trucks require the individuals to provide a current photo and background information that is reviewed by the Police Department to help insure public safety. Residents may contact the City Collector at any time to verify if a business has a current license as this information is public record. Residents may see vendors set up on local parking lots selling produce. These vendors are exempt from local license regulations by the State of Missouri and are allowed to sell produce that is grown in Missouri.

    Current dog licenses will expire June 1st and documentation of current rabies vaccination needs to be provided for all renewals. All dog owners in the city limits are required to obtain dog licenses. These licenses are needed for public safety to ensure that all dogs within the city have current rabies vaccination.

    For questions or concerns about any license information, please contact Carl Larkerbrink, City Collector, at 660-747-9131 or visit City Hall at 102 South Holden Street.

    Informational Codes Session On Wednesday, May 13, 2015, building inspection, zoning, code enforcement, property maintenance, fire and public works staff members will conduct an informational codes session for realtors, contractors, developers and business owners.

Lunch will be provided by Jimmie Johns. For more information contact: Brett Penrose, Building Official, 660-747-9135,

    2015 Spring Storm Shelters

    Community of Christ Church, 700 S. Mitchell St.

    First United Methodist Church, 141 E. Gay St

    Grover Park Baptist Church, 409 N. Mitchell St.

    Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 300 S. Ridgeview Dr.

    If shelters are open prior to a storm, the Warrensburg Fire Department will get the word out via their Facebook and Twitter accounts and KOKO radio. Depending on the amount of advance notice with oncoming storms, it is possible that not all shelters will be open.

    These are pre-storm shelters only, meaning they are not set up to house people long term. Plans are in place for an event requiring longer term sheltering.

    Click here to view the shelters on a map along with some shelter tips.

    Lifelong Learning at UCM invites you to our upcoming program:

    Handcrafted American Artistry: Collecting Fenton Glass

    Founded in 1905 by brothers Frank and John Fenton, the Fen-ton Art Glass Company was the largest manufacturer of handmade colored glass in the U.S. and renowned for its in-novative glass colors as well as hand-painted decorations on pressed and blown glassware.

    At our May Lifelong Learning program, Melvin and Norma Lampton, Fenton glass specialists, will share their considera-ble knowledge about Fenton glass based on approximately thirty years of collecting antique glass. They will also discuss and display part of their extensive collection, which they ac-quired from flea markets and garage sales. Thus far, they have collected and re-sold nearly 3,200 pieces!

    Initially the Lamptons focused on Fenton glass because of its beautiful colors. Later they began to acquire pieces made by other glass companies, such as Westmoreland, Cambridge, Imperial, Northwood, Waterford, Pilgrim Cameo and others. Melvin will explain the different types of glass, the different types of minerals used to make the glass and the various methods employed to make them.

    Program participants are welcome to bring their pieces of glassware for the Lamptons to discuss, though they will not appraise the monetary value of the pieces brought in. As an added bonus, the Lamptons are graciously donating a piece of glassware for a door prize!

    All Lifelong Learning programs are free and open to every-one. Please join us!
