Creve Coeur's City Council meets Monday night at 7:30 p.m. after an extended work session on budget issues.
The conversation which began last week at the city of Creve Coeur's Planning and Zoning Commission about food truck regulation will continue Monday night at City Council. A theme emerging out of last week's meeting was that the city really doesn't know how less restricted allowance of food trucks would impact brick and mortar restaurants outside of the fact that some existing restaurants have stepped forward with concerns. The subject is on the council agenda for discussion, but no formal vote on policy. Council members will also consider a three year contract extension for the police department's School Resource Officer program. The officer will split time between Bellerive Elementary School and Parkway Northeast Middle School.

Creve Coeur would not replace existing machines, City Councilman said Monday.
Just a step out of the gym at the Creve Coeur Government Center which, depending on the on the day might be hosting exercise classes, is a vending machine full of Butterfingers, Snickers, Fritos and other not-so-healthy snacks. That would not change under a suggestion brought to Monday's city council meeting, but the machine could get some healthy competition. Ward 4 Councilman Dr. Scott Saunders, and also an Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Developmental Biology at Washington University, said the school was approached by a St. Louis area firm that places the machines containing healthier food choices at no charge to the venue. "My goal is not to do anything draconian," Saunders said. "I'm not trying to eliminate any of the vending …

The building within eyesight of Interstate 270 will still be focused on medical tenants.
A recognized piece of real estate in Creve Coeur has a new owner and plans for a new look.
