All that stands between a new roof for Circle K is the St. Peters Board of Aldermen.
The convenience store at the intersection of Spencer Road and Mexico Road has just one more hurdle to clear before it can rebuild following January's fire.
Circle K sustained such significant damage in the blaze that the city required the store to apply for a special use permit and meet zoning standards that were put in place after the store originally opened.
So far the path toward re-opening has gone smoothly. The lone hiccup in the process has been a question about a white wall during the April 3 meeting of the Planning and Zoning Commission. Once that was settled, the commission approved the new site plan and made a recommendation to the board to approve the special use permit.
The board will vote on the permit during Thursday's meeting. If the board approves the plan, Circle K can get to work on replacing the roof and re-building following the fire that caused an estimated $700,000 worth of damage.
Also on the agenda for Thursday's meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. at the St. Peters Justice Center, is a bill that would change the law relating to the firing of arrows within city limits. The board will vote on a bill that will amend the law to give the city power to establish an area where the firing of arrows would be allowed. The change would pave the way to open an archery range at 370 Lakeside Park.
In addition to the normal voting, the board will swear in Terri Violet following her win in the April 2 election.
