ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - A move to ban some tent cities in St. Louis is moving forward.

The full Board of Alderman met Friday to talk about Board Bill 14, which would ban tent cities that are on public right of ways, which includes River des Peres in South City. The city’s public safety committee voted to approve Board Bill 14 earlier in the week. This comes after nearby residents have been complaining to MSD voicing concerns about people, tents, and odors in the area.

After a second reading Friday by the Board of Alderman, it could go for a final vote in the coming weeks.
