The St. Louis Board of Aldermen will resume discussions next week of the city’s budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
The budget presented to the board by Mayor Francis Slay totals $985 million.
Among the cuts to the budget that Slay is proposing includes essentially eliminating the city’s cable TV channel, known as STL-TV.
The cut was rejected by the board of estimate and apportionment, but Slay says he remains confident that the Board of Aldermen will see that STL-TV is a luxury the city can’t afford.
