St. Louis' Loop Trolley Needs More Taxpayer Money To Stay Afloat

via Fox 2 Now St. Louis by ELLIOTT DAVIS

ST. LOUIS – The Delmar Loop Trolley may be on life support and is in danger of shutting down in weeks.

It's asking St. Louis County taxpayers for another $700,000 to stay afloat. But members of the county council have signaled thumbs down on this deal and are willing to take the risk of the project going belly up.

Councilman Mark Harder called it a ridiculous request.

But Trolley backer Joe Edwards said they can make the Trolley Project work with this short-term fix. Without that money, he warns the trolley may have to be shut down.

St. Louis County Executive Sam Page wrote a letter to the county council, saying it would be a disappointment if such a big project failed and it might send a wrong message to the federal government.
