#TODAY The University City council will consider at its meeting Monday a resolution to officially oppose the pro-merger advocacy group Better Together’s plan to consolidate St. Louis, St. Louis County and the county’s 88 municipalities, which include University City. The meeting is at 6:30 p.m.
The resolution says that Better Together seeks “to impose significant and potentially damaging changes” on municipalities through a statewide vote and resolves to oppose that vote. It also urges the St. Louis County Council and the St. Louis Board of Aldermen to pass similar resolutions.
University City was one of many St. Louis County municipalities that sent Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway a letter in recent weeks alleging that Better Together’s proposal would result in a “substantial deficit” in the city’s budget. The state auditor’s office is charged with estimating the fiscal impact of initiative petitions.”
