The City of St. Peters' elected governmental body consists of a Mayor and Board of Aldermen made up of two aldermen from each of the City's four wards. The Board considers and enacts ordinances and resolutions, levies municipal taxes, approves zoning changes and record plats, determines the budget and a five-year plan of recommended capital improvements, and sets policy for the City.
The Mayor and Aldermen are elected to four-year terms. Non-partisan municipal elections are held in April with half the Board and Mayor elected one year and the other half of the Board elected the following year. Each Alderman is a resident of the ward of the City that he or she is elected to represent.
The Board of Aldermen meets regularly at the St. Peters Justice Center, 1020 Grand Teton Drive. Limited parking is available at the facility. Additional parking is located across the street at Mid Rivers Mall.
The Mayor or a majority of the Board as provided by City ordinances may call special meetings. The Board of Aldermen may meet in executive sessions, work sessions and ward meetings in accordance with the procedures and provisions of Missouri state law.
Board of Aldermen meetings and work sessions are broadcast on Charter Cable channel 992 and U-Verse channel 99. Replays of the meetings are played periodically throughout the month. Board of Aldermen meetings are also available online to view live or on demand.
