And dozens of protesters speak out against changes at Creve Coeur Lake Park
The St. Louis County Council on Tuesday proposed a resolution that would clear up how Proposition P money would be used.
Councilman Mark Harder directed the resolution to Peter Krane, County Counselor, regarding the call for more transparency on how the funds are being spent.
Proposition P is a half-cent sales tax that’s expected to generate $80 million a year for public safety. It was passed this April with sixty-three percent of St. Louis County voters voting in favor of the tax.
Harder said in a memo that the resolution was influenced by the “recent media reports on how certain municipalities are considering using the funds generated.”
Additionally, on the Tuesday, protestors gathered before the St. Louis County Council to protest a new ice rink facility being built in Creve Coeur Lake Park.
