The Lake Saint Louis Board of Aldermen met on Mon., Feb. 6 for a public work session and regular meeting.
At the Feb. 6 public work session at Lake Saint Louis city hall, Assistant City Administrator Eric Sterman spoke to the board of aldermen about codifying a special use permit process for special events in the city. The need for this came up, Sterman said, as the city worked to bring the O'Fallon Farmer's Market to its new home at The Meadows. "It only makes sense to look at how we handle these special events," Sterman said. "Requiring all vendors to get a business license is not the most efficient process." The permitting process could then also be applied to events like Oktoberfest and the art show. A new ordinance could require the event promoter to apply for the permit and make sure that all the vendors at the event meet city and event …

At Monday night's work session, Director of Public Works Derek Koestel laid out a plan he's developing to offer the insurance to residents.

That amount used to be the maximum amount cities were allowed to charge for the insurance, but the amount has since been changed to $50. Koestel said that many cities have dropped that amount, and some are able to …
