  • Memorial for Bob Hofer consists of a tree, already planted, and a bench.  The Town Board and citizens present chose a dark composite park bench with an engraving in the bench recognizing Bob and his service to the Town of Augusta.
  • Plans for the Town Square gazebo are coming together.  It was decided to purchase a kit since the engineering designs are already included.  It’s a simple design that includes the 24 foot metal roof, 8 vertical posts, and colored stains.  There are two companies who are interested in bidding.  Discussion was lively.
  • The Plein Air was successful.  There were 98 artists; 67 of them were placed in volunteer housing in the area.  They took in $83,000 with around $20,000 in profit that will benefit Augusta.  The Harvest Festival is coming up next in September.
  • The History Museum’s Plant Sale on May 4th took in about $400 in profits.  The Volkfest will be on June 2 with brats, homemade sauerkraut, homemade pickles, warm pretzels, and beer samples from Good News Brewery.
  • The second arbor was finished in time for the Plein Air.  Wild grapevines will be planted to grow up and around the arbors.
  • Cochran Engineering is submitting plans to MODOT for the sidewalk grant.
  • Money for sidewalk repairs at Lower and Walnut has been approved ($2,300).
  • Directional Sign committee is being formed to place signage around Augusta to point the way to various places.
  • Augusta is putting together an Emergency Disaster Plan
  • A representative from the University of Missouri Extension outlined opportunities to enhance the awareness of the Town of Augusta in  St. Charles County.  SHOW ME NEIGHBORHOOD ART WEEK from June 8 – 15 invites homeowners to decorate their houses with art, such as a collection of flags  or other pieces of art.  For more information visit:
