What do you mean I’ll have more influence in my community?

The ratio of elected officials to residents currently in St. Louis County is 1:143,000. By adding two additional positions to the Board of Aldermen to accommodate new annexation residents, the ratio in Manchester would be 1:4,000. City Hall is approximately 3 miles from the annexation area and it is free to park. Meetings are held at the Justice Center at the Highlands and there are no metal detectors. Manchester represents a local, accessible government closer to home than St. Louis County Government Center in Clayton.

In addition, new residents would be eligible to serve on a variety of appointed City boards and Commissions, including Planning & Zoning, Board of Adjustment, Tree Board, and Veterans Commission. The City of Manchester believes residents should be active in creating the hometown and quality of life they desire.
