You Paid For It

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Board of Aldermen has okayed two measures that were the subjects of recent You Paid It Team reports.

The board gave final approval to the $63 million CARES Act legislation. That money is going to be used to help St. Louisans fight coronavirus. The You Paid For It team has been looking into the pace of getting the legislation thru the Board of Aldermen.

The board also gave final approval to put the residency rule up to a public vote. St. Louisans will get to decide in November whether to allow city employees to live within city limits or not.

Both bills will go to Mayor Lyda Krewson for her signature.
