Ellisville Walmart saga continues as permits set to expire

Thursday, 05 September 2013 02:08 Published in Local News

   The conditional use permits issued for a proposed new Walmart in Ellisville are set to expire Thursday, and the fate of the project remains unclear.  

   Developer Sansone won a major court challenge to the $50 million project last week, but still has acquired only about eight acres of land and that doesn't include the Clarkchester Apartments.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that contracts Sansone had with some of the complex's nine owners expired in July, and at least two have declined to renew.  

   The city issued a building permit Wednesday and Public Works Director Bill Schwer told the paper Sansone could break ground Thursday on the property it does own.  

   But at Wednesday night's city council meeting, Mayor Adam Paul asked City Attorney George Restovich to find out if the city could legally terminate its agreement with Sansone which includes $10 million in tax increment financing approved last year, before half the council was replaced in the last election.  

   Also Wednesday night, the City Council voted 4-3 to have Restovich draft a resolution terminating long-time City Manager Kevin Bookout, a proponent of the project.  Bookout was also involved in the attempt to oust Mayor Paul earlier this year, but Paul says Bookout's termination isn't about revenge.

 

Menards plan approved for Hadley Township

Wednesday, 04 September 2013 04:48 Published in Local News

   Residents in the southern part of Hadley Township may finally know the fate of their community.  

   The Richmond Heights City Council  Tuesday night unanimously approved a plan for a $63 million Menards development.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the approval includes $15 million in tax increment financing for the redeveloper, Menard Inc., to cover some development costs.  

   The paper reports that by the end of the year, the developers plan to notify property owners of closing dates on their sale contracts.  

   The new retail development will be east of Hanley Road, between of Maplewood’s Walmart development and I-64/40.

St. Clair Co. Board minutes posted to anonymous website

Wednesday, 04 September 2013 03:47 Published in Local News

   St. Clair County seems to have it's own version of wiki-leaks.  

   Information that hasn't been released by the county board is being posted on the anonymous website CountyBoardInfo.com.  Material posted to the site include minutes from a July 29 executive session at which board members and State's Attorney Brendan Kelly discussed drug testing county employees.

   The unidentified web publisher says the site "is designed to enhance government transparency."  The site isn't affiliated with county government, but promises to keep posting county board meeting agendas, audit reports and meeting minutes.  

   The Belleville News-Democrat reports that the county hasn't posted such material on its website since June.
