Without this card, residents are charged non-resident rates. Please note, these benefits serve as a privilege to our residents only. Commercial businesses do not qualify for this perk.

St. Peters Resident Privilege Cards are valid three years from the date of issuance and are available to each resident 2 years of age and older, residing within the corporate limits of the City.

To get your Resident Privilege Card, bring a picture ID and proof of residency to the Citizen Action Center at City Hall, the St. Peters Rec-Plex, or St. Peters Recycle City during the hours listed.

You can download a Resident Privilege Card Application (PDF) to fill out ahead of time and bring with you when you come in for your Resident Privilege Card.

Proof of Residency

We ask that you provide proof that you live in St. Peters before we issue you a Resident Privilege Card. City staff might be able to verify your place of residence through computer records; however, if you recently purchased your home, or if you lease or rent in St. Peters, you will need to provide proof of residency. The most common item used is a current utility bill. Another option is to bring an official piece of mail with your address that has a printed date less than 30 days old. If your photo ID does not have your current address on it, please bring a second item showing your St. Peters address.


St. Peters Resident Privilege Cards are valid for three years from the date they were issued. There is no charge to renew a Resident Privilege Card after three years, but we will verify residency and take a new photo in order to renew. Cards may be renewed within 30 days of expiration. See locations and hours for Resident Privilege Cards above.

There is a charge of $3 to replace a lost Resident Privilege Card.

Rec-Connect Online Registration

When you receive your Resident Privilege Card, you'll also receive everything you need to log into the City of St. Peters' Rec-Connect Online Registration Service. The Rec-Connect service allows you to register online for many St. Peters programs as well as check the availability of City of St. Peters rental facilities. Log-in requires an ID and PIN number. Your Resident Privilege Card number will be your Rec-Connect log-in ID. Our staff also will provide you with a PIN number.
