PUBLIC WORKS OPERATIONS UPDATE

In light of the current events with the Coronavirus, Public Works has modified our operating hours and procedures to make sure we are able to provide service to the residents of Creve Coeur.

The Public Works administration office remains open for business. However, we are limiting access to the Government Center building to the lobby vestibule only. If you need to drop off permit submittals, sewer lateral applications or other correspondence, please come inside the vestibule during regular business hours (8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m., Monday–Friday) and call (314) 872-2533 to speak with a staff member. You can also call ahead using the same number.

Our road and park maintenance staff will be working extended hours and has split into two groups. Both the A and B groups will be comprised of six people. Each group will work three days a week so we will have some staff available Monday through Saturday.

With reduced crew sizes, we will only be able to provide minimal services. We plan to provide leaf and limb collection as scheduled. We will also make sure that the parks are serviced and restrooms at Millennium Park are cleaned and disinfected twice a day. All other park restrooms remain closed until further notice. Finally, we plan to provide minor road maintenance (pothole patching, sign replacements, etc.) as manpower is available.

Should you have any questions or need assistance, you can contact our office at (314) 872-2533. We appreciate your patience as we all work though this difficult time.
