City Eco Devo Consultant Selection Meetings Lacked 24 Hours Notice

yTkejEGTEThis is going about as well as the Airport Privatization Consultant Selection process.

At 11:57 am Today/Monday, the City posted an online Notice/Agenda for a 3:30 pm Today Meeting for the Selection Committee for RFQ (Request For Quotation/bid) for Consultant for City of St. Louis Economic Development Strategy.

That’s a 3 hour, 27 Minute Online Notice for a meeting. State Law requires 24 hours public notice. By Mayor Krewson’s Executive Order, these notices must be posted Online to City website at least 24 hours in advance.

At 12:07 pm Today, the City posted an online Notice/Agenda for a 9 am Tuesday/Tomorrow Meeting of the same Selection Committee. That’s a 21 hours, 7 minutes notice, not the required 24 hours.

The meeting will be held at SLDC Conference Room B, 2nd Floor, 1520 Market, City Hall West.
