Accessibility improvements may be coming to STL County Parks

Legislation that aims to make St. Louis County parks more accessible is expected to pass on Tuesday’s St. Louis County Council meeting.

Bill No. 248 which was introduced by Councilmembers Sam Page, Pat Dolan and Colleen Wasinger seeks to hire Ottolino Winters Huebner, Inc. for construction of restrooms in three St. Louis County Parks.

The parks located in each of the councilmembers’ district include Creve Coeur Park, Queeny Park, and Tilles Park.

The expected cost for the new restrooms is estimated around $139,220.

Also on Tuesday, Councilwoman Hazel Erby may call her bill that would attempt to roll back the previously agreed upon county pension plan.

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.
