St. Louis County Council set to take up pension bill Tuesday

The St. Louis County Council is set to perfect certain bills pertaining to retirement pension benefits Tuesday night.

Councilwoman Hazel Erby’s bill that would rollback the pension plan changes that were passed last November is on the Council agenda for perfection, however, members could vote to delay a vote on the issue.

The measure passed last fall for the adjustment pension funds was meant to improve benefit packages to retain quality employees. The change was passed without issue, but but Erby and others are now voicing concerns that it was specifically crafted to benefit St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch.

Erby (D-District 1) represents North County.

Also on Tuesday’s agenda, District 5 Councilman Pat Dolan has a bill that would allow County Executive Steve Stenger to sign a contract with the City of Clayton for construction and improvements along South Hanley Road related to the Scott Triangle Park Streetscape.
