A new Board Bill was introduced at last week’s Board of Aldermen meeting without being on the published agenda. A vote to suspend the rules and introduce another bill was part of the proceeding. This happened at 36 minutes into the meeting (see video).

The bill not on the agenda introduced after suspending the rules?

The following two (2) board bills are being introduced in the St. Louis Board of Aldermen today:

  • B.B.#35 – Vaccaro – An ordinance protecting victims of automobile theft from paying storing, towing and administrative fees directly related to recovery of a stolen automobile by amending Ordinance 64668, approved June 11, 1999 and containing a severability clause.
  • B.B.#36 – Vaccaro – An ordinance mandating that the Director of Parks, Recreation and Forestry shall cause the construction of four well?lit basketball courts in Forest Park by October 1, 2017.

As of 5:30am the pages with the full bill language are not posted online, I’ll update this post once these are available. [UPDATED @10AM]

Today’s agenda can be viewed here. The meeting begins at 10am, it can be watched online here.

An update on last week’s meeting. Just before 7am on Thursday May 11th I downloaded the Week #4 agenda (view on Scribd). I then copied and pasted the list of new bills (#25-#34) into the post for the next morning. That night I updated the post with links to the bill pages. The Week 4 agenda currently posted online (Scribd) doesn’t include Bill #34 — 25 through 33 all match The video of the meeting shows no #34 was introduced — BB#33 was introduced at 28:53 in the video. However, a Board Bill #34 creating a buffer zone at abortion clinics is listed, though it shows no legislative action taken. Perhaps #34 will be formally introduced at a later date? I’ve downloaded copies in case it disappears.
