ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO -

Voters in Mackenzie Village voted Tuesday to dissolve and become part of the county.

Mackenzie Village, located just south of Watson Road along the River De Peres, is only 12 acres and has a little over 130 residents.

The town’s clerks and trustees are not paid and they all fall between 78 and 92-years-old.

The resident’s of Mackenzie were worried that by dissolving, the village would not get the attention it needs from the county. Because of the vote to dissolve, street maintenance, upkeep of the park, lighting and police protection will all be managed by the county.

The plan to dissolve passed by only three votes.
