Late August is Deadline to Submit Proposals for Three St. Louis-Area License Offices
JEFFERSON CITY - Interested groups or individuals will have until later this month to bid to operate one or more local license offices in the St. Louis region.
The Office of Administration this week issued Requests for Proposal (RFPs) asking for bids to manage three license offices. The license offices are Creve Coeur (12943 Olive Blvd.), Des Peres (1080 Old Des Peres Rd.), and Northside (1408 N. Kingshighway Blvd., Suite 102).
The deadline for submitting bids for the Northside License Office is Aug. 28. The deadline for the Creve Coeur and Des Peres license offices is Aug. 30.
Prospective agents can submit bids that use the current office locations or that conform to geographical borders for new locations. Proposed license office locations in Creve Coeur and Des Peres must be within the city limits of those two municipalities. A proposed replacement for the Northside License Office must be within one mile of the current location.
