St. George Wants St. Louis County To Take Over the little Village

Maria Keena

ST. GEORGE, MO (KMOX) –The tiny and notorious village of St.  George wants to dis-incorporate and become a part of Saint Louis County. The ball is rolling because of new City leaders.

Mayor Carla Wilkerson tells KMOX, the straw that broke the camel’s back happened when the previous Mayor, Mary Kaufman, wanted the Charlack Police Department  to take-over from Saint Louis County Police,  who just assumed responsibility in 2009.

Now, the St.  George Dis-incorporation Committee must get 50-percent of the electorate to sign a petition so voters can vote on the measure. Once enough signatures are collected, the un-incorporation push can be put on the ballot.
