ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The City of St. Charles is looking at a possible sales tax increase to improve parks and the stormwater system.

According to officials, the tax increase would only be half of a percent.

The city has the lowest tax in the St. Charles County area, but residents say they were not too happy about the possibility of an increase.

Officials say the city council is set to discuss the proposal on April 19 with the hopes of putting the proposal before voters in the summer of 2016.
