ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two additional St. Louis County municipalities are opposing any merger of St. Louis and St. Louis County.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that members of the Sunset Hills Board of Aldermen voted Tuesday to oppose a merger of the city and county. Olivette City Council and its mayor also approved a resolution Tuesday urging the city and county to oppose any legislation authorizing a statewide vote regarding St. Louis, St. Louis County and the municipalities that fall within them.

Olivette councilwoman Ruth Springer says “individuals and super PACs” are pushing for a statewide ballot measure as early as November, where all Missouri residents would vote on a possible city-county merger.
