Aldermen reject move to end residency requirement for St. Louis workers

The Board of Aldermen on Friday rejected putting repeal of the residency rule for most city employees before voters next year, dealing a political setback to Mayor Lyda Krewson.

The mayor in recent months has made scrapping the residency rule — especially for the short-staffed police department — a major priority.

The board’s 16-11 vote Friday against the proposed city charter amendment was a reversal from its 15-12 vote on July 3 to give the same measure preliminary approval.
