posted Jan 4, 2017, 5:54 PM by Jonathan Carey-Voris   [ updated Jan 6, 2017, 8:46 PM ]

When inclement weather is in the forecast, the streets will be treated in advance  with salt.  The amount of snowfall will be monitored and, if needed, the streets will be plowed and treated with salt.  If there isn’t enough snow to plow, the streets will be treated with salt and calcium mix, depening on temperatures.  

Questions: Contact Street Commissioner Sam Marcus (streets@crystallakepark.org) or 314-398-4055. 

 Residents can help by parking in driveways so the streets can be salted and plowed efficiently and safely.  Thanks.

Our History Continues To Be Discovered . . .

posted May 6, 2015, 8:12 AM by Jonathan Carey-Voris   [ updated Jul 5, 2015, 4:32 PM ]

Robert Mayer on East Drive recently found an Animal Tax tag from 1978 when he was digging in his yard.  The text stamped on it reads:

     19  78
ANIMAL TAX
        45
   CRYSTAL
 LAKE PARK

Does anyone remember these tags?  How much was the tax?  Did it apply to all pets?  Was the "45" stamped on this tag a sequential number? (I don't think it could be an address.)

A photo is attached below.

Thanks, Robert.  What other treasures are buried?
