   Former Illinois state trooper Matt Mitchell is asking for the fourth time to have his driver's license reinstated at a hearing Tuesday morning at the Secretary of State's Mount Vernon office.  A similar appeal in July was denied.  

   Mitchell lost his license after pleading guilty to causing the 2007 crash that killed Collinsville sisters Kelli and Jessica Uhl.  Mitchell had been driving his patrol car in excess of 120 miles an hour and texting when he slammed into the Uhl's car.  

   A decision on Mitchell's license reinstatement is not expected for 90 days.

   Pattonville officials won't have to cut $10 million from the school district's budget after taxpayers overwhelmingly approved their first tax increase in 22 years.  Preliminary figures from the St. Louis County Board of Elections indicate that more than 6,100 votes were cast Tuesday and more than 70 percent of the voters approved Proposition P.  

   Several other communities held elections as well Tuesday.  '

   Voters in Edmundson and Woodson Terrace both approved hotel sales taxes.  

   And it looks like the latest effort to dissolve the Village of Uplands Park has failed.  That needed 60 percent approval and received just over 50 percent.

 

Former Rockwood School Board member guilty of conflict

Wednesday, 06 November 2013 02:18 Published in Local News

   The Missouri Ethics Commission says a former Rockwood School Board member has violated the state's conflict-of-interest law.  

   The commission found that over a two year period Steve Smith voted more than a dozen times on construction orders that allowed his employer, Glenn Construction to raise its fees on contracts with the school board.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Smith has been hit with a $10,000 fine, but if he pays within 45 days, the amount drops to $2,000.  If he violates the conflict-of-interest law again in the next two years, Smith would be on the hook for the other $8,000.  

   Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich had come to the same conclusion in his February audit of the Rockwood School District. 

   Smith served on the Rockwood Board of Education as a Glenn Construction employee between May 2010 and June 2012.
