Proposition S: St. Louis County voters will be asked to approve a $100 million bond issue to fund construction on both county court buildings. Most of the bond—$85 million—would be used to construct a new Family Court building next to the circuit court. The remaining $15 million would fund repairs at the circuit court.
The measure needs 57 percent approval to pass. If passed, it would represent about $8 in annual property taxes for each St. Louis County property owner, but would not raise taxes for residents.
The ballot text reads as follows:
Shall St. Louis County, Missouri, issue general obligation bonds in the amount of up to One Hundred Million Dollars for the purpose of acquiring a site and constructing, renovating, improving and equipping court facilities and related improvements, including a new family court for St. Louis County?
