Another ground-breaking ceremony took place today for the St. Louis Gateway Arch Grounds Project as a third phase of construction begins.
Putting that money to work is Great Rivers Greenway, who are working to expand and preserve the River Ring, a connected system of trails and greenways throughout the region.
The county council was set to perfect the budget bills at Tuesday night’s meeting but issues during negotiations have councilors putting on the brakes.
In the city, the sales tax increase for parks, trails and the Archgrounds passed with 67% of the unofficial count. In St. Louis County it passed with about 53%.
Opponents of Prop P in St. Louis City and County say the ballot language falsely implies St. Charles County could share in the burden.
Voters will decide on Proposition P, a 3/16-cent sales tax. It would raise the tax on a $10 purchase by roughly two cents.
