Public Finance

The Public Finance study is not intended to provide analysis or to compare the finances of individual municipalities or fire districts. Rather, it is meant to provide an overview of how we as a region operate financially and also to provide the basic financial information that will lead to an informed dialogue around the topic of public finance and the remaining five studies.

Another goal of this study is to provide comprehensive and searchable data to citizens so that they may have access to any and all information that Better Together has received from the 115 governments providing municipal services in St. Louis City and St. Louis County. The collection of the data contained in this study took hundreds of hours and several thousand dollars to compile. It is readily and freely available to the public at www.bettertogetherstl.com in the belief that it will provide the basis for an informed discussion of how we as a region provide municipal services.

Executive Summary

Better Together has completed its study of Public Finance in St. Louis City and St. Louis County, as well as the 90 municipalities and 23 fire districts within the County. This study is the first of six that examine how municipal services are delivered to the people who live within the boundaries of St. Louis City and County, compare the status quo to best practices, and identify opportunities for improved effectiveness and cost.

The Public Finance report consists of data collected from each of the 115 governments in St. Louis City and St. Louis County. While several governments and municipalities have not yet responded or continue to gather the requested information, the vast majority of municipalities and fire districts, as well as the City and County, were cooperative in the process of gathering this initial information.

The process of collecting the financial data and developing the database was completed with assistance from Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated, in order to ensure that the data provided an accurate depiction of how our local governments pay for and provide municipal services. Great care was taken in the methodology for this study, which is discussed in greater detail in the report introduction. In addition, Better Together team members met with city administrators from St. Louis County municipalities to review the data collected, discuss the methodology for collecting the data, and review how the data was going to be presented in the study.

It is important to note that this report is not meant to compare municipalities or fire districts to one another, but rather to analyze how we as a region pay for services and how those services are financed. The importance of doing so is the basis for Better Together’s mission and for this study. The costs associated with funding all 115 governments and their collective population of 1,318,610 has reached a staggering $2 billion per year. Of this $2 billion, $1.6 billion stems from annual tax revenue with the remaining funds consisting of fees and other governmental revenue streams. In addition, these governments are responsible for over $1.25 billion of outstanding general obligation, leasehold, COP, and special obligation debt. These numbers require analysis by the people who are served. The purpose of this study and the subsequent studies will be to provide information such as this to foster informed dialogue.

To that end, Better Together has created a searchable database for all of the information received from each of the 115 governments in St. Louis City and County. In addition to providing access to the highlighted data, the database will also provide access to the source documents for that data, contained in an electronic data library on the Better Together website Better Together - Public Finance Study.

Finally, in order to further promote informed dialogue, Better Together requested a legal memorandum from Polsinelli, PC, which provides answers to questions that have been asked. This memorandum states the following conclusions of law:

  • In the event the City of St. Louis became a municipality in St. Louis County and then subsequently filed for protection under Chapter 9 of the United States Bankruptcy Code, the City of St. Louis would continue to be solely responsible for its legal debts, to the extent approved by the Bankruptcy Court. Neither of St. Louis County, the State of Missouri, nor any other third party would become responsible for any of the City’s debts and/or other expenses, absent their explicit agreement to do so. There is no law (either State or Federal) or court precedent that would lead to any other conclusion.
  • The City of St. Louis, as employer of its police, fire, and City employees, would remain responsible for any unfunded liability in the City employees’ pension systems. The act of the City of St. Louis re-entering St. Louis County as a municipality would not automatically change its status as the employer of these employees, nor change its responsibility as employer to those employees.
  • No existing City of St. Louis obligations would automatically become the partial or full responsibility of the County, were the City to re-enter the County as a municipality. Additionally, no future obligations of the City would automatically become the partial or full responsibility of the County after the City entered the County.
  • If the City of St. Louis rejoined St. Louis County as a municipality, it would neither participate as a “pool” or a “point of sale” city, and would not receive any distribution of funds from the County.

Sources of Information

In December 2013, Better Together issued requests for information to St. Louis City, St. Louis County, 90 municipalities in St. Louis County, and 23 fire districts. The request asked for:

  • A line item budget for the current or most recent fiscal year
  • An organizational chart including salaries of all paid employees and their job titles/functions
  • A complete and accurate list of all current assets and equipment owned (valued over $5,000)
  • A complete and accurate list of all noncurrent liabilities
  • Copies of all professional service agreements
  • Compiled over the course of the past two months and with the prompt assistance of many municipalities and fire districts, this information is now publicly and readily available in this report and through the Better Together database.

In addition to the listed documents, many of which will not be utilized until later studies, Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFRs) were gathered to compile basic financial information for the 115 governments in St. Louis City and County. In order to ensure that the specific information gathered from these documents accurately depicted the financial health and practices of the St. Louis City and County region, the Better Together team worked with finance professionals to design both this report and the database located on the Better Together website.

In order to allow citizens to see from where the information contained in the report and the database was collected, footnotes are available as a guide to the original source documents, which are also available in the Better Together library located online.

Methodology

Prior to requesting the information contained in the Public Finance report, Better Together staff met with financial professionals at Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated, who provided assistance with compiling information and developing the Better Together database. In addition to the guidance of these public finance professionals, Bob Baer agreed to serve as Chair for Better Together’s Public Finance Study and oversaw the study process. Baer is a retired local business executive who is Past-President and CEO of Metro and has also served as chairman of the St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District and the St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority.

Subsequent to establishing the appropriate oversight for the study, requests for this information were sent to each municipality, fire district, St. Louis City, and St. Louis County. An overwhelming majority of the municipalities and fire districts, as well as St. Louis City and St. Louis County, responded to our requests with the information sought. This information, when necessary, supplemented the Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFRs) that were also collected either through the official websites for each governing body or through a separate request.

Financial information that arrived electronically was added to the Better Together data library, and the appropriate information was gathered and added to the Public Finance spreadsheet that is attached to this report and provides the information for the Better Together database at www.bettertogetherstl.com.

Financial information that arrived via mail or that was picked up by Better Together staff in hard copy has been scanned and added in electronic form to the Better Together data library. As with the electronically sent materials, the appropriate figures were added to the Public Finance spreadsheet.

In order to ensure accuracy, the data for each municipality, fire district, St. Louis City, and St. Louis County was checked no fewer than three times by research fellows and Better Together staff. As a final accuracy measure, the methodology employed was reviewed by financial professionals, who also provided spot checks of the data to ensure its accuracy and prevent errors.

Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports

A Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) is a detailed presentation of the community’s financial condition. It reports on the community’s activities and balances for each fiscal year.
