Funding Request For Loop Trolley Gets Frosty Reception From St. Louis County Council Chief

The presiding officer of the St. Louis County Council won’t introduce legislation to provide more money for the Loop Trolley — a move that could make it very difficult to get measure past the finish line.

It’s a setback for a service that’s trying to piece together enough money to remain solvent through the rest of the year.

The Loop Trolley Company requested $200,000 from St. Louis County to keep the trolley running for the rest of the year. It also requested $500,000 to operate next year. If the company does not receive financial assistance, the trolley could stop operating as soon as Nov. 15.

St. Louis County Council Presiding Officer Ernie Trakas said on Monday he plans to acknowledge the request for funding at Tuesday’s council meeting. But he doesn’t plan to introduce legislation on the matter.
