ST. LOUIS – St. Louis City Mayor Tishaura Jones is asking for feedback from residents on how the money from the American Rescue Plan should be spent.
Jones said the first found of funding from the plan is coming soon. She said the city’s Stimulus Advisory Board has prioritized $50 million for direct relief.
Jones put a link to a Google Form in a Facebook post for residents to send the city their thoughts on where the money should go.
The Google Form asks questions about a person’s relationship to the city, whether they live there, work or own a business there, or go to school there. It also asks a person’s zip code at their home address. Then it asks demographic information and if a person’s household income is greater than $44,000 per year.
It then gives survey takers the opportunity to rate different categories on their level of importance.
Finally, the survey allows individuals to write in their own words how they want the money spent.
