From CraigsList St. Louis comes this ad:
I have Two 2-story Brick houses that i would like demolitioned. The bricks are yours to keep as long as the property is demolitioned and all debris removed by way of dumping at an official/legitamite dumping site. Must obtain proper permits & adhere to city code & regulations.
Please only reply if you have the equipment for this job and proof of your ability to complete the job as well as remove all bricks from the site.
Now, I wonder if this person knows about the city’s preservation review ordinance. Of course, there’s a good chance that the ward in which these homes are located is exempt from review.
