"It’s one of the most idiotic things I’ve seen this board do. I’ll go on record with that," said Ward 2 Alderman Kathy Schweikert.
At the last regular meeting of 2012, Lake Saint Louis Mayor Mike Potter put a slate of appointees for city boards and commissions in front of the board of aldermen for approval.

The ceremony went on despite the rain and participants were rewarded with some tree-related fun and a free tree.
It seems to rain every year Lake St. Louis celebrates Arbor Day and Saturday was no exception. Cold and blowing rain kept the crowd away from the celebration but about a dozen residents braved the weather and came out to participate. Lake St. Louis celebrated Arbor Day Saturday May 14 in Boulevard Park under the gazebo.

Lake St. Louis has met these criteria for ten years. This year's celebration featured a proclamation by Jim Bowers, …
