Anonymous Donor Buys Steak 'n Shake Meals for Kirkwood Snow Crews
The city thanked the donor on its Facebook pages. PLUS: Have you wondered what streets get serviced first when there's a snowfall? Here's the answer.
Fans were raving on the City of Kirkwood's Facebook page about an anonymous donation on Thursday given to members of the city's snowplow crew who had been at work since 4:30 that morning:
"THANK YOU to the unidentified resident who paid for our snow crew's lunch today at Steak 'n Shake," the city posted on its Facebook page. "The snow guys...are working 12-hour shifts today. They (and we) greatly appreciate the warm thoughts and graciousness of this particular resident and ALL our wonderful Kirkwood residents."
Fans followed up with comments calling the move a "class act" and praising the work of the Kirkwood snow crews.
So have you wondered where those crews go first? That's also covered on the city's Facebook page. Here's what the city wrote:
ORDER OF PLOWING: We focus first on the main roads [examples: Kirkwood, Geyer, Essex, Woodlawn, Woodbine, Couch] so that emergency vehicles can get through. During this first stage, we also work on hills and bridges. Then we work to get to the secondary streets [examples: Taylor, Fillmore, Dickson, Quan, Rose Hill, Clay, Lindeman, Harrison, Peeke, Ann], and finally to the subdivision streets. Just FYI. Thanks!
