Board Bill Number 41
Introduced by Alderman Jack Coatar, Alderwoman Christine Ingrassia
The proposed Board Bill seeks to promote the use of energy efficient heating through the connection to the Downtown Steam Distribution system, and the continuing use of the Downtown Steam Distribution System for any development project occurring in Downtown St. Louis seeking Municipal Financial Incentives. The proposed Board Bill would also prohibit the Clean Energy Development Board of the City of St. Louis from approving financing for any project that would result in a commercial building disconnecting from or no longer using the Downtown Steam Distribution System for heat.
This video is the result of a law passed in 2016 by 21st Ward Alderman Antonio French. The historic “Transparency in Government Law” requires all public meetings of the St. Louis Board of Aldermen; the Board of Estimate & Apportionment; the Board of Public Service; and the Preservation Board be recorded and made available on an official City of St. Louis YouTube channel.
