St. Louis County may ask voters to approve $100 million of borrowing on the April ballot to finance construction of a new family courts building and renovations to its circuit courts building, according to published reports.

Voters in 2008 rejected a $120 million referendum that included funding for the family courts building and the circuit court projects.

A four-sevenths majority would be needed for the referendum to pass. County officials said the new borrowing would not require a tax hike but the current levy that supports existing debt that matures in 2013 would continue until 2033.
