SEPTEMBER'S MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR
Hello St. Ann,
I am sharing my email address with you so that if you have questions about anything, including the information below and I believe it is better to get accurate information rather than rumors and misinterpretations. I want you to know the truth. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or suggestions. My email address is: email@example.com.
On Aug. 14, 2023, the Board of Aldermen chose Westport Pools to build our Aquatic Center and Bathhouse. The total cost for this project will be $7.5 million. This is the total cost because it is a Build and Design project, which means they quote us a price and that is the price. If it costs more Westport Pools will absorb the additional costs. If it ends up costing less, they still get $7.5 million. I don’t anticipate it costing less, as everything seems to be costing more each day.
The bonds for the pool were recently sold as we had to go through a state audit and Moody’s rating before we could put the project out for bids. We have been told that we will get the numbers from the State Auditor in September. At that time, we will be better able to determine the difference adding the pool to the City will impact our property taxes. Our expectation is that the pool will open in the summer of 2025, pending any setbacks, including labor and weather issues.
When you see your property tax bill, please remember that St Ann does not get the entire amount of your payment. Below are the percentages of the bill that St Ann receives, the rest goes to schools, fire, St. Louis County and the State of Missouri.
The 2022 Tax Percentages are listed below so that you can compare them to the 2023 numbers that are expected to be out by early November.
Commercial Property 1.3020
Personal property 1.3.23
Real Estate 1.0790
