St. Louis County Proposition S

St. Louis County is requesting voters to approve general obligation bonds in the amount of $100 million to construct a new family court facility for $90 million and make improvements to the St. Louis County Civil Court building for $10 million. The passage of Proposition S will not increase taxes. The current general obligation bonds approved by the voters in 1998 will be retired in 18 months. The new bonds will take the place of the retiring bonds. Court officials say the current 40-year old facilities are deemed inefficient due to unsafe environments, do not meet fire codes and violate state law by not providing separate areas for alleged perpetrators and victims. They were not built to accommodate the current electronic equipment and new improved, hazard-free air conditioning/ heating units. Current costs to maintain the building exceed $750,000 a year.

It is anticipated the maintenance costs of the new facilities will be less as major repairs will be unnecessary.

Family Court Building staff are situation in variety of locations due to lack of space in the current facility. Caseloads have increased dramatically to 103,000 in 2010 from 23,500 in 1970.

The Civil Court Building will be renovated to accommodate adequate electrical systems and make the facility safer.
