Post Dispatch: St. Louis County Municipal League changes its name


ELLISVILLE • The St. Louis County Municipal League has a new name after almost a century of service: Municipal League of Metro St. Louis.

Members approved the change at the monthly meeting Thursday night, on the recommendation of the league board and Executive Director Patrick Kelly. Members from about 25 cities attended, hosted by Ellisville.

Kelly said because the membership now includes St. Louis City and County, the new name is more appropriate.

 The 98-year-old lobbying organization includes membership of 84 of the 90 county municipalities. Chesterfield recently left in a dispute over sales tax distribution advocacy.

Kelly said the 100th anniversary of the league in two years will be celebrated in various ways, to be planned.
