They told me that they have no permit on file for any caches in any parks in
St Charles City.

that has ever placed a cache in a city park???

When they told me there were no permits on file I told them that I know
several of the catchers that have caches in the parks and I know they
received permission. They told me that there was nothing on file. I told
them I would pass the word.

St Charles city needs to keep better track of their records I know you,
Mike, followed the proper protocol as you are a responsible cacher. I have
filled out several cache permits forms like the one you posted I hope they
still have them. It was just put them on a desk and not filed when I turned
them in. The comment was also made by the director of the rangers Mike
Cordry "Oh you guys are OK just put your stuff out there then bring in the
forms" which to me would lead me to believe that they don't pay too much
attention to what's out there until it becomes a problem. The first time I
went in to find out what was needed he had a hard time finding the proper
forms. So my guess would be WE are doing what WE are supposed to but they
are not.

I was contacted today by the St Charles City Parks Department and then by
the St Charles City Police Department. It seems that one of my Tremendous
Tree caches that the Missouri Botanical Gardens had supposedly received the
proper information for placing caused a bit of a scare yesterday. The tube
that the MBG had placed on the back of the tree signs for the caches was a
PVC pipe w/ caps at both ends. On this cache the tube had been pulled loose
from thee sign and was lying on the ground near the sign. Someone reported
it to the Police and they had the bomb squad out to check it out. Upon
investigation they found out that it was my cache and that there was no
permit for the cache. Here is the actual more important thing. They told me
that there are NO CACHE PERMITS on file for any caches in St Charles City
parks. I was really surprised because I know that some of you with caches in
St Charles City Parks have received permission from someone. It was not the
correct person or you did not follow the correct procedures. The city is
cache friendly but they want their rules followed. There is a procedure to
follow at the following link.
The Ranger and Police suggested that if you have a cache in a St Charles
City Park, it is not legal and it should be removed until you follow the
proper procedures to get your permit. I told them that I would pass this
information along through this freelist and on the SLAGA web site.
