CLAYTON (KMOV.com) -

The St. Louis County Council advanced a plan Tuesday to turn the Museum of Transportation over to private management.

The council voted unanimously to move the measure forward. A final vote could come later in December. If the plan passes, the museum will be run by the Transportation Museum Association.

The group has promised to run the museum as it is currently being operated. Officials say the county could save more than $80,000 if the museum is privately run.

St. Louis County officials also said they will ensure any available land on the property will remain a park.
