CLAYTON (KMOX) – Efforts to land a cargo hub at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport are getting a $3 million cash infusion, though not everybody agrees with writing the check.

“That particular project is not strong enough or firm enough” to warrant the grant, St. Louis County councilwoman Colleen Wasinger said after casting the lone “no” vote Tuesday on steering community development block grant funds from Lemay to Lambert.

Wasinger stressed that she does have confidence in the Midwest Hub Commission and in its leaders, she just believes that the efforts are futile until state legislators step-up with support.

“It’s a band-aid until the state legislature takes up the issue, which I do not believe will happen this session,” she said. “It may very well happen next year.”
