electioncancel

 

St. Louis County and St. Louis City voters will go to the polls April 7th to vote on a Rate Hike proposed by Metropolitan Sewer District to fund a $500 Million Bond Issue. In St. Louis City, this is a Special Election, no other ballot issues or candidates are on the ballot. In St. Louis County, this is a Municipal General Election.

Absentee Voting for this election began March 11, 2020.

You may vote Absentee by Mail. Downloadable Absentee Ballot Application here. Last Day To Request Absentee Ballot By Mail is March 25, 2020.

You may Vote Absentee In Person 8 am to 5 pm Weekdays at Board of Election, 300 N Tucker.

Additional Absentee Voting Information at St. Louis City Board of Election.

The April 7th ballot issue does not directly say a rate hike is involved. You have to know that “To comply with federal and state clean water requirements, shall The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) issue its sewer revenue bonds… to be payable solely from the revenues derived by MSD from the operation of its wastewater sewer system” means Rate Hike. Previous Rate Hikes also did not say Rate Hike.

MSD’s ballot issue campaigns are run by Stenger-saga and St. Louis City and County Prop P (sales tax hike for police) consultant The Kelley Group. The new ballot issue campaign committee is named “Campaign for Clean Water STL.” The first major donor to this MSD campaign was $35,000 from SAK, a pipeline contractor in O’Fallon, Missouri. You might remember SAK from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch‘s “After controversial MSD vote, winners donated more than $150,000 to Stenger campaign” story.

April 2, 2019: City and County voters rejected an impervious surface charge proposal by MSD
