-A $300,000 bond from the trolley operation which would help University City pay the costs of street rehabilitation should the trolley cease operationsAccording to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the most hilariously ominous of those requirements — the $300,000 bond to cover the cost of ripping up the tracks if this whole thing (somehow!) tanks — has been agreed to by the Trolley Co., which held a meeting Monday afternoon to approve the expense. According to Rose, that money was first requested by the city council in 2013, then again in January 2017. Why that and the other requirements were not attended to prior to the trolley's grand opening is a mystery for which we may never receive an answer.
