Judge says Overland Council must meet at community center


St. Louis, MO – A judge on Monday ruled that meetings of the Overland City Council must be held at a community center.

Former Mayor Bob Dody and five other residents sought the order, claiming the council chambers are too small for crowds that have packed Overland meetings since Ann Purzner became mayor.

Her efforts to replace the police chief and city attorney have spurred high attendance at the meetings. City Hall has a capacity of 160.

The community center can hold up to 900.
