In addition to voting in the primary for St. Louis’ next mayor and aldermen, voters will also be faced with a choice about Proposition S. The text of the proposition reads as such:

“Shall the City of St. Louis, Missouri, be authorized to impose an annual fee of $5,000 for each permit (new or renewal) for a Short-Term Loan Establishment or $2,500 for a permit issued with less than 6 months remaining in the calendar year?”
