St. Louis County Council Delays Vote on Waste Hauler Contract Extension

Measure placed on hold until all seven council members are able to vote on it.

The St. Louis County Council has postponed a decision on a bill that would extend the length of contracts with its waste haulers from three to five years.

At Tuesday’s meeting, Second District Councilwoman Kathleen Kelly Burkett requested that the measure be placed on hold until all members of the council were present to vote on it. Fourth District Councilman Michael O’Mara, the bill’s sponsor, was absent from the meeting.

    Just the kind of courageous action we’ve come to expect from the County Council! And, why was the sponsor of the bill not there to vote on it? T doesn’t take a Rhodes scholar to figure out how the sponsor of a bill would vote on it , does it?
