   The development of a new Walmart in Ellisville will move forward despite the developer's failure to win a permit extension from the city council.

   Walmart’s director of public affairs Chris Neeley told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the extension was sought to give the builders breathing room, but that the company will continue to work to see the project through.  

   Sansone's current permit runs out in just over two weeks. 

   The Ellisville City Council voted 3-3 Wednesday night to deny Sansone Group's request for a 180 day extension of a conditional use permit for construction of the project. 

   The Post reports that Mayor Adam Paul, whose campaign for office was based on his opposition the tax-supported project, and Aldermen Linda Reel and Mick Cahill rejected the request.

   Aldermen Matt Pirrello, Cindy Pool and Roz Acup backed the extension.

   Alderman Gary Voss was absent.

   Despite opposition from reinstated Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul, tax breaks for a proposed Walmart development are moving forward, albeit slowly.  The City Council voted 4-3 Wednesday night to authorize TIFs for project developer Sansone Group.  

   The vote came after Jim Sansone and Mayor Paul exchanged heated words during the packed meeting.  Sansone promised court action if the council reversed their 2012 approval of the development.  Paul acknowledged his continued opposition, but also recognized that the council majority would rule.  

   A second vote is needed to finalized the bill.  That's expected to happen at a special council meeting later this month.
