Begin online Call (314) 622-4114


The practice of submitting and voting on resolutions is a typical part of the legislative business. Resolutions are usually for multiple purposes:

  • Resolutions express consensus on matters of public policy: lawmakers routinely deliver criticism or support on a broad range of social issues, legal rights, court opinions, and even decisions.
  • Resolutions are passed for internal, administrative purposes.
  • Courtesy resolutions are created for the purpose of honoring an individual or organization that has made a mark on the history of the City of St. Louis. They are the highest honor any individual or organization can receive from the Board of Aldermen.


In order to request a courtesy resolution from the Board of Aldermen, you must have the following information:

  • Name and address of the individual or organization.
  • 8 - 10 lines of background on the individual and organization.
  • Reason why this person or organization is deserving of this recognition.


Once you have gathered the required information, please submit the form below. You may also call 314-622-4114 and request the resolution by phone.
