Robert McNulty was going to be honored with Creve Coeur proclamation Monday night, but died Sunday.
One of the first items on Monday's agenda for the Creve Coeur City Council meeting was supposed to be a brief ceremony presenting Robert McNulty, a longtime city resident who has served on city committees, currently on the Building Code Board of Appeals, with a proclamation of appreciation.

Most people in the St. Louis area have never been through a major earthquake, despite the fact that much of its population lives in the potential shock zone of the New Madrid fault. Knowing what to do during a tornado may have saved scores of lives on Good Friday, but few St. Louisans are prepared for what to do if a major earthquake hits the area, said Mark Rosenblum, with the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) That’s part of the reason SEMA is conducting The Great American Shakeout earthquake drill Thursday, which will involve at least 2.8 million people in eight states.
