SB 72 - Under this act, all villages in St. Louis County are disincorporated beginning January 1, 2015. The disincorporation of the villages is not subject to review by the St. Louis County Boundary Commission. The area comprising the former villages may not be incorporated into a city or village nor may it be annexed by a city.
This act requires the St. Louis County executive to appoint for each village a trustee to close the affairs of the village. All money collected by the trustee in the dissolution process is to be paid to the county. The county executive must use the money for the benefit of the village. All books, papers, records, and deeds of the village are to be delivered to the county clerk.
