(KMOV) -- St. Louis needs to cut $45 million from its budget and aldermen are asking for the community’s help.
A group of citizens met to discuss ideas Tuesday night. It was the first of three meetings this week.
Some suggestions include charging $5.00 a month for trash pick-up, furloughing city employees, salary reductions, not replacing retired employees, getting rid of take home cars and doing away with park rangers to have city police take over their duties.
The idea of paying for trash pick-up created the most debate.
Every idea discussed at the meetings will be posted on a city website
for all residents to see.
