The St. Louis County Council is seeking input from a commission as it considers whether to ask voters for approval to issue debt for building projects and to raise sales and other taxes for transit and public safety.

No decisions have been made on the various proposals or the timing of ballot measures. The county is considering a $120 million general obligation request for buildings, a sales tax increase for the Metro transit agency, a sales tax increase for park projects and operations, and a use tax on out-of-state purchases to finance public safety, parks, and local government services.

The commission, which is made up of County Council members and members of the public, will report their decisions to the council this summer.
