The Executive order established a twelve-member advisory board charged with exploring and recommending strategies for long-term diversification, stability, growth, and sustainability of the revenue of the City of St. Louis.

“When I talk to City residents, they consistently stress the importance of funding for vital municipal services like public safety, infrastructure, support for our youth, attractive public spaces, refuse and recycling services, and more,” said Mayor Jones in a press conference. “The Long-Term Revenue Advisory Council will be made up of individuals who understand the importance of this funding, from government, the private sector, and the community, and I’m excited to see their recommendations.”
