Government

For more information about St. Louis government CLICK HERE

St. Louis’ mayor has primary executive authority with the legislative authority vested in a Board of Aldermen that is made up of 28 members. One is elected from each of the city's wards in addition to a board president who is elected citywide. The mayor shares some executive authority with 9 other independent citywide elected officials, including a treasurer, comptroller, and collector of revenue. The individual aldermen have a great deal of influence over decisions for the ward they represent on issues ranging from zoning changes, to street resurfacing.

Municipal elections in St. Louis city are held in odd numbered years, with the primary elections in March and the general election in April. The mayor is elected in odd numbered years following the United States Presidential Election, as are the aldermen representing odd-numbered wards. The President of the Board of Aldermen and the aldermen from even-numbered wards are elected in the off years.

Although St. Louis City and County separated in 1876, some mechanisms have been put in place for joint funding management and funding of regional assets. The St. Louis Zoo-Museum district collects property taxes from residents of both St. Louis City and County and the funds are used to support cultural institutions including the St. Louis Zoo, St. Louis Art Museum and the Missouri Botanical Gardens. The Bi-State Development Agency runs the region's Metrolink light rail system and bus system. Each district also includes a significant portion of St. Louis County.

The local county government provides services to St. Louis as well as a variety of special service districts. St. Louis County performs the dual roles of providing services to more than a million residents and local government services to the 300,000 residents of unincorporated St. Louis County. In St. Louis County, primarily private companies provide all water, natural gas and electricity, with only two of the County's 91 cities providing any municipal utilities. St. Louis County government, 60 municipal police departments, 23 fire protection districts and 20 municipal fire departments provide protective services in St. Louis County. The government also provides a broad array of public health services and has 12 private hospitals within its borders.
