It was later determined that St. Louis County will bid the project to have the roads seal coated, which would only prolong the roads, at most, for an additional 7 years; a construction resurfacing would not occur.

PUBLIC WORKS Authorization to Bid on Forestry Equipment
Superintendent of Streets, Jim Link, requested that the Board approve an amount not to exceed $75,000 to bid on a used forestry/lift truck the CIty of Kirkwood is currently selling via online auction on GovDeals. Mr. Link has been to Kirkwood to inspect the truck and believes the $75,000 top bid is the most the city should spend on the truck given its age and condition.
Alderman Leahy asked why Kirkwood was selling that truck. Mr. Link stated the city was eliminating that service so there was no need for them to keep that piece of equipment.

He stated he did not see a third party that could enforce this deed restriction. He advised the City could release the restriction.
