ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – St. Louis City will soon require that parking lots hire attendants to help cut down on crime.
Police will be asked to coach the attendants on signs of suspicious activity.
If there is an event downtown like a Cardinals game, the attendant cannot just take your money and then leave when the lot is full. The attendants will have to stay for the length of the event.
When the lots are closed, they have to be secured with either a locked fence or a chain at the entrances.
The rules will apply to lots city-wide and will have about a month to comply.
The building division will give waivers to parking lots that “demonstrate they are safe and secure.”
