Mayor wants plowing feedback from city residents

Friday, 10 January 2014 09:15 Published in Local News

The controversy surrounding the lack of plowing of St. Louis city side streets has pushed the issue front and center following last weekend's snowstorm. In response, not only were plows on the streets overnight, but now city residents are being asked to log-in online to voice their opinion on whether the City should plow residential side streets.

Officials say it is important to collect data because not everyone is in favor of plowing the side streets for fear of getting snowed under.  

The Mayor wants to know more before making wide-sweeping policy changes and urges feedback from residents. More information is available on the city's website at: stlouis-mo.gov. Click on the "Mayor Slay" tab to register your opinion.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Buying an older car could become more economical in Missouri.
A state senator filed a bill Thursday that would exempt decade-old cars from sales taxes on the titling of the motor vehicle.
Under the bill, a 2004 model bought in 2014 would be exempted from sales taxes.
The measure is sponsored by Republican Sen. Mike Parson, of Bolivar. He says that some people can't afford new cars, and that vehicles in service for 10 years have already had taxes paid on them.
It has not yet been referred to a Senate committee

Cop Shooter Sentenced

Friday, 10 January 2014 07:39 Published in Local News
CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A burglar who shot an off-duty St. Louis police officer has been sentenced to 40 years in prison.
Sgt. Rick Lingard was off-duty and alone in a home on March 22, 2012, when the burglary occurred. Two men who were 19 at the time, Christopher Gales and Montez Thomas, were accused of shooting Lingard during the crime. 
Gales, of St. Louis, pleaded guilty earlier this week in St. Louis County Circuit Court to several charges. He was sentenced Thursday.  The case against Thomas is still pending.
