Ward 6 puts improvement projects to vote

ST. LOUIS - One section of St. Louis is on the cutting edge when it comes to spending cash.

St. Louis' 6th Ward is only the fourth community in the United States that allows residents to decide how tax dollars are spent, and $100,000 in improvement projects are being put to a vote.

Residents can choose between 13 projects including more trash cans, new landscaping, street lights, and bike lanes.

"Right away we moved a few months ago and we were able to jump in and lend our voice to what our neighborhood will look like, what it's going to feel like, it's just really empowering and it makes senses," said Jessica Rowley.
