(KTVI) – A petition asking that the governing of Uplands Park be turned over to St. Louis County was presented to the St. Louis County council Tuesday night.  But the president of the Uplands Park village board plans to challenge the petition to “dissolve” the village.

Some residents support his idea, while others want trash, sewer and police activities to be run by the county.

The county picked up police patrols after the village failed to reimburse neighboring Velda City for $10,000 owed for police work.
