   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.

   Residents in Uplands Park will decide next month whether or not to dissolve their tiny village.  In the mean time, the village board is considering how to provide police protection in the cash strapped community.  

   Residents complain that they've had little to no police protection since the board all but closed their Police Department.  

   Now St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch is weighing in.  He's sent a letter warning trustees that state law requires them to provide 24 hour police protection.  

   The village board discussed McCulloch's letter at Monday night's meeting.  They also discussed contracting with St. Louis County for police protection, but the board took no action.
