There is currently space for 20 advertisers at this location and advertising spots will be allocated on a first paid basis.  Permit application will be available from the St. Louis Village Office beginning April 4, 2016.

Residents are asked to check their property for any trees, hedges or branches that may be encroaching past their property onto other private property or into streets, alleyways or the walking portion of sidewalk areas.
