SB 260 - This act makes several changes to the St. Louis County Boundary Commission Law.

The act:

1) Creates a "boundary correction", which will allow adjustments of the boundaries of property under 30 acres residential or 10 acres commercial. The correction, if approved by all registered voters, or property owners if there are no registered voters, and by the governing body of the municipality or the county if the boundary correction places the property in an unincorporated area. Such correction is not subject to Commission review;

2) Clarifies that the county or municipality can bring suit against the Commission. A losing county is exempt from paying costs to the Commission;

3) Changes qualifications of signatories to a petition to require registered voters of the area, rather than property owners;

4) Under current law, members of the Commission may not hold an elective or appointive position with a political subdivision. This act applies this restriction to any contractor with the Commission.
