The Task Force proposes a November 2020 ballot initiative to amend the Missouri Constitution, creating a new class of local government, made up of the current geographic boundaries of the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County. If passed, in this new government:
The government will be led by an elected mayor and a 33-member council. Other elected offices include one prosecuting attorney and one assessor.
One police department and one municipal court system will serve the region, and a newly united voice would be able to address important issues like economic development and health. School districts and fire protection districts would be unaffected.
