   The St. Louis County Council is doing something it seldom does -- reversing itself on a senior housing development already underway in the Oakville area.  

   The move follows an uproar from people who live near the planned 45-unit low-income apartment building in the 6000 block of Telegraph.  

   Last year the council had unanimously approved the development by Ohio-based National Church Residences.  

   Tuesday night, the county council voted 5-2 to send the issue back to the planning commission so that area residents can weigh in on zoning permits issued for the development.  

   Several council members who sided with the residents say they don't expect the zoning to be revoked.

   The Missouri Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of a state law requiring unaccredited school districts to pay for students to attend other nearby schools.

   Tuesday's decision involves a specific family who contends the St. Louis Public School District should have footed the bill for their two children to attend Clayton schools. But the ruling could have implications for residents in other unaccredited districts.

STL City's red light cameras ruled okay

Wednesday, 12 June 2013 04:27 Published in Local News

   It looks like St. Louis' red light cameras can stay, and the city can keep millions of dollars it's collected in fines.  That's after yesterday's ruling by the Missouri Court of Appeals that upheld the city's use of red light cameras to control traffic.  The ruling reverses a previous court decision that had declared the city ordinance unconstitutional.  

   The city won't be able to collect on all 138,000 unpaid red light tickets though.  That's because the court also found that tickets issued more than a year ago had to be tossed out because they didn't clearly state how they could be contested.  Just about a year ago the city fixed that problem by changing the wording on the summons.
