A plan to dissolve the city’s recorder of deeds office and use the money from to buy police cameras has a lot of approval.
To get on the November the two-part plan needed 20,000 signatures, so far, it has more than 40,000. The plan was thought up by Democratic state Sen. Jamilah Nasheed and Republican activist Rex Sinquefield. It would amend the city charter to allow the city assessor’s office to absorb the recorder of deeds office.
Nasheed and Sinquefield both believe merging the two offices into one would generate $1 million.
If all goes well, St. Louisans will be able to vote on the plan in the fall.
