In narrow vote, aldermen advance controversial $8 million TIF for McKee-affiliated project

After an often tense hearing, a St. Louis Board of Aldermen committee narrowly advanced a controversial bill on Wednesday that could provide as much as $8 million in subsidies for a planned health-care facility affiliated with developer Paul McKee.

The 4-3 vote to move the bill out of committee underscores the political sway the developer and his allies still hold in City Hall even after Mayor Lyda Krewson’s administration moved to cancel a 2009 development agreement covering 1,500 acres of north St. Louis.

Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed, who does not always attend meetings of the Housing, Urban Development and Zoning Committee, cast a key vote in favor of advancing the bill.
