Lawmakers in one West County community are against a merging of the City of St. Louis with St. Louis County.
The Ballwin Board of Aldermen voted 7-1 Monday night to draft a resolution opposing a city-county merger.
Alderman Frank Fleming was the lone no-vote. Fleming says he couldn't approve the proposal because it wasn't on the agenda for Monday and had been introduced as an emergency measure. Fleming saysd he's in favor the resolution otherwise.
The resolution will be on the agenda of the March 24 board meeting.
