Coffee With The Mayor Program Kicks Off: What Would You Ask?

Creve Coeur City leaders are holding monthly informal coffee sessions on the first Thursday of each month.

Approximately 25 people turned out early Thursday morning to the to gnosh on some light food and visit with Creve Coeur Mayor Barry Glantz, City Administrator Mark Perkins, as well as other department heads. 

It is being billed as an informal way to answer questions and listen to ideas.

Thursday's session included questions about the thrift store which will be moving into the former Walgreens space on Olive Boulevard. Mayor Glantz said he was disappointed that the site appeared not to be getting the best possible use of the property. The site is part of the Olive-Graeser Transportation Development District, and the , as a 501(c)3 entity, will not generate sales tax for the district.

Other questions dealt with a Ladue Road Sidewalk improvemet project planned for next spring, and the , which will be up for final City Council approval Monday night.

"Coffee With The Mayor" will be held the first Thursday of each month for the remainder of the year, starting at 7:30 a.m.

If you couldn't make it, what would you like to ask the Mayor or city officials?

Wow, what a nice ringing endorsement for a new business coming into town, "disappointed that the site appeared not to be getting the best possible use of the property." Mayor Glantz - don't show up at their ribbon cutting since you feel that way.

The owners of the property should decide what is the best use. If you don't like it, buy it. Also, I am pretty sure the word you were looking for is "nosh." nosh |näSH| informal noun food: filling the freezer with all kinds of nosh. • a snack or small item of food: have plenty of noshes and nibbles conveniently placed. verb [ no obj. ] eat food enthusiastically or greedily: there are several restaurants, so you can nosh to your heart's content | [ with obj. ] : there I sat, noshing my favorite food. • eat between meals: today's grazing is different from what we used to call noshing or snacking. ORIGIN early 20th cent. (denoting a snack bar): Yiddish
Red Racks Thrift Stores March 26, 2013 at 03:04 PM
We, the Disabled American Veterans who own and operate our Red Racks Thrift Stores throughout the state of Missouri, are excited to be opening our newest store in the fine city of Creve Coeur. We believe we will be an asset to the community. This store will employ roughly 25 people. We are hopeful to be opening in the next several weeks. We also appreciate the support shown already from the locals in the community. Given the chance, we are hopeful we will win those over who are less than optimistic about our presence here. While it is true that we do not collect a sales tax, the proceeds raised go to help those brave men and women (and their families) who have sacrificed so much for the liberties and freedoms we enjoy. Even the freedom to disagree. We thank the citizens of Creve Coeur for their support, not only for eventually shopping at our/your store but also for the needed donations of gently used clothes, shoes and small household items.
