The question about dissolving the C.A. and having the city take over C.A. amenities brought some adamant and unexpected responses.
Lake Saint Louis Board of Aldermen discussed several local issues during a recent Meet the Candidates Night event, including the possibility of doing away with the city’s Community Association. The event, held March 15 at the Community Association, was designed to give residents a glimpse of handful of candidates vying for three two-year terms and one one-year term on the city’s governing board.

The typical questions about each candidate's qualifications, about taxes and funding street repairs were asked and answered, one by one. But the question about dissolving the C.A. and having the city take over C.A. amenities brought some …

You've had your first cup of coffee; now relax with the second and find out what's up for the day in Lake Saint Louis.
Good morning, Lake Saint Louis! Interesting day yesterday. I got a call from Wentzville Patch editor Brian Feldt. He was driving on Hwy. 40 through Lake Saint Louis when he noticed several police cars and vans, right at the place where the lake goes under the highway. I jumped in the truck and headed out there. The vans parked on the south service road were animal control vans. Two patrol cars were on the north service road. Check back later today for the full story. I spend a lovely two hours in the afternoon talking to Ralph and Rose Barrale. They graciously invited me to their home and I was swept away by the stories they shared. Next week, look for a profile about them and their campaign for veteran recognition. This is another busy …
