Councilman Joe Cronin called a second version with exceptions "weak and watered down."
(The following press release was issued by the St. Charles County Council.) The St. Charles County Council, at a special meeting Saturday morning, decided to stand by its original bill calling for a charter amendment in the form of a ballot proposition concerning a countywide ban on smoking in enclosed public places. The Council considered a new bill that would have changed the ballot language to merge the smoking ban with three exceptions: places requiring patrons and employees to be age at least 21 years of age, private clubs, and 20 percent of hotel rooms. Councilman Joe Cronin, the sponsor of both the original and second bill, said the Council did a lot of “soul-searching” and came to the conclusion that passing “something that was …

Tow truck company owners upset at law that denies tow licenses to drivers convicted of felonies.
The St. Charles County Sheriff’s Department will begin issuing licenses and performing background checks on tow truck drivers. A measure approved by the St. Charles County Council March 26 allows the county to continue checking backgrounds of tow truck drivers. Previously, the county Registrar’s office issued the license and did the background checks. However, Roger Morgan, owner of Assured Towing in Wentzville, successfully sued St. Charles County by asserting that only law enforcement officials could perform background checks. After the March 26 meeting, Morgan argued that the judge in his case ruled the county could not use a closed court record to deny his license. A judgment in the case reads: “St. Charles County and (Registrar …

County Executive Steve Ehlmann vetoed a voting machines purchase that would cost $1.2 million. Election Authority Director Rich Chrismer argues the veto interferes with him performing his duties.
The St. Charles County Council may vote on overriding a veto on purchasing voting system equipment for $1.2 million during its 7 p.m. meeting Monday. County Executive Steve Ehlmann vetoed the bill after the council approved it 4-1 during its last purchase. He objected to having one bidder on such a large purchase. Ehlmann blamed federal and state regulations for creating a system in which just one company is certified to sell voting machines in the state. Ehlmann said the county should hold off on the purchase until another company is authorized to sell the equipment so they can receive a competitive bid. Henry M. Adkins & Son was the only bidder. Election Authority Director Rich Chrismer said they are the only company certified to sell …
