Sunset Hills aldermen are expected to give final approval at their next meeting to a measure that will allow bow hunters to hunt deer inside the city limits.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that aldermen gave initial approval this week to a plan aimed at controlling the rising deer population.
Under the plan, bow hunters would need a valid hunting license and an insurance policy or indemnity bond worth at least two-million dollars. They'd have to hunt from a 10 foot high deer stand and only on parcels of one acre or larger.
Officials will host a forum next Tuesday evening at 7 (Aug. 20) at City Hall to answer residents' questions.
A South County man is in custody after an eight hour standoff with police that had included a SWAT team.
It started Thursday afternoon around 4:00 when a man barricaded himself in his Sunset Hills home on Old Gravois Road.
A police tactical unit was called in.
Sunset Hills Police police believe the issue that set the man off was a domestic dispute.
The man finally surrendered without incident around 12:15 Friday morning. His name hasn't been released.
