MSD to seek nearly $1B for storm water improvements
ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – St. Louis city and County residents will be asked to vote next year to approve nearly one billion dollars in bonds for MSD. According to our partners at the Post-Dispatch, voters also will be asked to vote for a 12-cent property tax to fund storm water services.
The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District says the two issues are necessary to maintain its system and comply with a court order to cut sewage overflows into rivers and streams.
If passed, the two proposals would affect bills for nearly every resident of St. Louis and St. Louis County.
