What do I do in a sewer backup emergency? This is a question very few ask themselves. Sewer backups have many different causes, and no one can guarantee it won’t happen to you. The City encourages you to contact your insurance provider and complete a risk assessment of your property to determine if sewer backup insurance is for you. ... See MoreSee Less
The City of Washington has entered into a six-month long agreement with Lime to allow shared mobility devices (such as electric scooters) in Washington. The City of Washington supports the addition of new transportation options to our residents and visitors while also establishing guidelines and regulations for the safe and controlled use of these devices.

Wish it was a 3 month agreement. See both sides....but concerned with safety. I was at a stop sign on Front street when a scooter with two people traveling fast on South Lafayette came across the intersection...didn’t stop or look for traffic. Also, I feel bad for Washington Police Department having to deal additional calls.
I am happy to see them here and happy to see that they are not allowed on sidewalks. In a recent post by a local police officer he stated that the council had voted to allow sidewalk use. Please update the PD so they can enforce that and keep the sidewalks for walkers.
I don’t see the need for these.
What are the hours for the shredding day?

It has been a few day in and this has been a terrible experience so far. I am for continuous improvement and new ideas in our community but I feel like this decision was not thought out. The rules posted here say no riding on the sidewalk, currently this is one of the only places I have seen them ridden. The sidewalks and curbs have been very marked up with tire marks. They are also being ridden on the riverfront trail. This is not acceptable. The riverfront trail is for exercise and not motorized devices. The trail is full of kids, families, pets and older citizens of our community and the scooter riders have not been respectful of any of this. The riverfront area is very crowded without the added stress of watching for these. They are being scattered everywhere along downtown and the riverfront. There is not someone patrolling to make sure the rules are followed because who has time for that. Will this take away from the bike rentals planned by Revolutionary Cycles. They are a current business in our town deserving our support. Again - open to new ideas but I think this one is a bad one.
More jobs in the area. Good
I can see them littered around on all the sidewalks through town in the near future. Not needed!
This is going to be a hot mess
Tucson has two separate ones. One bigger, one smaller. Nobody rides on the street, everyone uses the sidewalk. They are left pretty much everywhere. The companies have to pick up, recharge, and redistribute each night. I understand it’s doing reasonably well, but a lot of companies are grumpy about the scooters parked outside. People just leave them wherever.
what a joke!
And those side by sides speeding up and down roads, not licensed by the state of Missouri so should not be allowed on streets.
Geez some of you all will complain about anything 🙄
Buncha softies on here. Jump on one and have some fun. I’ve rode them everyday since Saturday. They take jumps very well and outrun Washington pd even better
My neighbor pulled 5 of them out of his basement Monday evening.
It's a lazy world we live in now. Why can't you use your two feet to get to where you want to go?! It's called exercise!
As if the golf carts and side by sides weren’t enough
Who enforces the adult only rule and how fast can they go on the walk ways? I didn't know that any motorized vehicles were allowed on park ways and side walks
Yes but i already see issues. They park them by businesses on the sidewalk and near cars, with potential hazard. Oh, lets not forget motorcycles get hit alot because not seen, imagine a scooter.
I thought it was cool🤷🏼♀️
That’s so cool! Thank you!
It worked well last weekend, NOT. They were left in the middle of sidewalks all over town, Jefferson Street, even parking lots of businesses, causing businesses to throw scooters in streets. Saw several users without helmets, pull out into front of traffic. The scooters were a blight on the City of St. Louis, that’s why they are trying to move to the smaller cities. Jefferson City had then and then sent them running out of town. These are wrong for WashMo, but can’t tell that to the Generation Y yuppie that has rammed this upon us. Docked bikes is better option. KC has great success with those but the dockless ones not so much or scooters either.
Well it will at least give you something else to watch and laugh at on the riverfront.
This is awesome! ❤️👏❤️👏 no need to pollute! Share the road!
