St. Louis County Council to honor Korean War veteran

St. Louis County Council plans to honor Korean War and Army veteran at Tuesday’s county council meeting.

Councilman Pat Dolan, who represents Clayton, will introduce a resolution that would honor the life and memory of Cecil H. “Hal” Hale, an Army veteran of the Korean War, who passed away on June 29.

In addition to the rally, the St. Louis County Council is scheduled to perfect certain bills pertaining to retirement pension benefits.

Councilwoman Hazel Erby’s bill that would roll back the pension plan changes (that were approved without issue last November) is on the Council agenda for perfection, however, members could delay a vote on the matter.

The measure passed last fall for the adjustment pension funds was meant to improve benefit packages to retain quality employees. Erby and others are now voicing concerns that it was specifically crafted to benefit St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch.

After the county council meeting finishes, the council members will then discuss the proposed FY2018 Budget for St. Louis County at a committee hearing.
