Ordinance #: Title
71186 Police Use of Force Policies
The overall purpose and/or reasons for the bill is to direct the Commissioner of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department to provide updates to the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department’s Use of Force Policy. The bill will require the Commissioner of Police to update the Use of Force Policy to include: 1. Ban officers from using chokeholds or strangleholds as a use of force method; 2. Require officers to use de-escalation tactics when appropriate and possible in place of use of force tactics; 3. Establish a duty to intervene policy, which would require officers to either stop or attempt to stop another sworn employee when force is being inappropriately applied or is no longer required; and 4. Edit the current use of force reporting policy to include comprehensive reporting and require officers to complete a report if a weapon is drawn and pointed at a civilian(s) regardless if the weapon was discharged or not. The bill will improve the current use of force policy enacted by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, which could lead a better relationship between the police and the communities they serve. As the Ferguson Commission report states, "The regular use of force has led many citizens to view the police as an occupying force in their neighborhoods, damaging community trust and making community safety even more difficult." According to the report, efforts to repair the relationship between police and the communities they serve "must begin through changes in use-of-force policies."
71162 Increasing Tax Rate for Early Childhood Services and Programming
The reason for the Board Bill is to consent to the request of the City Mental Health Board and place before the voters of the City of St. Louis at the November 3, 2020 election a proposal to increase the tax rate for the community children’s services from the current 19 cents per hundred dollars of assessed valuation to 25 cents, which is the maximum authorized by state statute. Pursuant to Sec. 210.860 the community children’s services fund has been administered by the City Mental Health Board since it’s initial passage in 2004. The tax increase is desired due to the need to increase early childhood services programming for children aged five years and younger, services which cannot be provided from current funds. If approved by the voters, the tax would yield approximately $2.3 million dollars annually.
71159 Honorary Naming of a Street to Alderman Samuel Moore Way
The proposed bill authorizes the installation of an honorary street sign, Alderman Samuel Moore Way, at the intersection of Garfield Avenue and Newstead Avenue.
71133 Repealing Section Two Ordinance 70714 Sheriff's Department
This Board Bill amends Ordinance 70714 by repealing Section Two of that ordinance and enacting in lieu thereof a new Section Two pertaining to the same subject matters; and adding Section Three containing an emergency clause.
71125 Fire Arms Regulations
The proposed bill allows persons, business enterprises, and other entities, organizations, and groups who reserve any of the City of St. Louis’ park amenities by permit issued by the City’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry to exclude from the permitted area persons carrying firearms, in accordance with 571.107(15) of the Revised Statutes of the State of Missouri, regardless of whether carried concealed on or about their person and whether they hold a concealed carry permit or endorsement. Additionally, the proposed bill requires that permittees are notified in writing at the time of application that they may, in accordance with 571.107(15) of the Revised Statutes of the State of Missouri, exclude from the permitted area persons carrying firearms, in accordance with 571.107(15).
71095 Salary History
The proposed bill would prohibit the departments, offices, and other divisions of the City of St. Louis, the Mayor’s office and Board of Aldermen, the offices of the City’s Collector of Revenue, Treasurer, Recorder of Deeds, License Collector, Circuit Attorney, and Sheriff, and the City’s Board of Election Commissioners from asking applicants for employment about their salary history, including wages, benefits, and any other compensation during the hiring process except where applicants are applying for an internal promotion or transfer, make unsolicited disclosures, their salary and compensation is determined by collective bargaining, or they were previously employed by the City of St. Louis, the offices of the City’s Collector of Revenue, Treasurer, Recorder of Deeds, License Collector, Circuit Attorney, Sheriff within the previous five years and they already have such information, or an unprompted disclosure during a background check done to verify other information.
71074 Ban the Box
The proposed bill would prohibit employers in the City from basing job hiring and promotion decisions on an applicant’s criminal history unless the employer can demonstrate its relevance to the job-related decision, and inquiring about an applicant’s criminal history until after it has been determined the applicant is otherwise qualified for the position, unless the applicant is part of a final pool of applicants for the job position and all of the applicants are asked. The forgoing would not apply where the employer is required by law or regulation to exclude applicants with certain criminal convictions.
71072 Unlawful Possession of a Handgun by a Minor
The purpose of this bill is to create the municipal ordinance violation of Unlawful Possession of a Handgun by a Minor under the age of eighteen (18) years. While the State of Missouri preempts most of the field of gun regulation, this bill seeks to take advantage of the federal law prohibiting, except in certain exempted circumstances, a juvenile from possessing a handgun, and to create a regulation to enforce this prohibition that is consistent with regulation allowed by state statute. This bill includes a Penalty provision for violation which is not to exceed $500.00 in fines, and/or 30 days incarceration. This bill is an exercise of the police power of the City of St. Louis with the goal of improving safety for all, creating a new tool to use against gun violence, and averting future problems by addressing gun possession by minors. This bill should have a positive impact on the community.
71045 Twenty-first Ward Liquor Control District
An ordinance prohibiting the issuance of any package or drink liquor licenses for any currently non-licensed premises within the boundaries of the Twenty-First Ward Liquor Control District, as established herein, for a period of five (5) years from the effective date hereof; containing exceptions and allowing, during the moratorium period, for the limited transfer of existing licenses, under certain circumstances, and renewal of existing licenses.
71041 Gun Background Check
An ordinance establishing reporting requirements for dealers selling firearms to report failures of a background check system when a firearm purchase is denied within the limits of the City of St. Louis. In 2018, there were 1,419 aggravated assaults with a firearm in the City of St. Louis. To date, there have been more than 1,700 aggravated assaults with a firearm in the City. The increased use of guns and the flow of illegal guns into the City has negatively impacted the overall safety of the residents. Additionally, the State of Missouri does not require a background check prior to the transfer of a firearm between unlicensed parties. The State also does not require firearms dealers to obtain a state license. In Missouri, all firearm transfers by licensed dealers are processed directly through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. If an applicant fails the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, there are no reporting requirements regarding the failed background check. This ordinance creates reporting requirements for those instances.
71038 Healthworks Hospital Project
The Healthworks Hospital Project is a 3-bed hospital, expandable up to 103,000 square feet, with a 24-hour emergency room and associated public infrastructure improvements, at the cost of approximately $72,900,000 for all phases. This 2019 Board Bill authorizes the execution of an Amended and Restated Parcel Development Agreement for the Healthworks Hospital Project.
71016 Honorary Street Naming of Sarah Tillard Lane
Pursuant to Ordinance 68937, an ordinance authorizing the honorary street name Sarah Tillard Lane, which shall begin at the intersection of San Francisco Avenue and North Newstead Avenue and run northwest on San Francisco Avenue to the intersection of San Francisco Avenue and North Taylor Avenue.
