St. Louis Board of Aldermen: New Board Bills Week 22 of 2019-2020 Session

November 8, 2019 Board of Aldermen, Featured No Comments

The St. Louis Board of Aldermen meet at 10am today, their 15th meeting of the 2019-2020 session. As previously noted, they have the first two meetings labeled as Week #1, so they list this as week/meeting 21.

Board Bill 11 is on the perfection calendar — final approval.  If signed by Mayor Krewson this would set up a vote to keep the size of the Board of Aldermen at 28, rather than reduced to 14 in December 2021. Voters narrowly approved Prop R in November 2012 with 61.5% — 60% was required.
