St. George hasn't been in the news lately. Well, maybe that's because it techincally no longer exists.
St. George residents voted in 2011 to dissolve the infamous speedtrap housing about 1,300 people and become part of St. Louis County.
And soon, the point of all the political hubbub will come to be: $1.3 million in improvements for the former city's aging streets, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. If St. George were still its own city, residents would have paid extra in taxes for the repairs, which would also have taken an extra two years of construction.
The old city hall also is slated to become the permanent headquarters for the St. Louis County Police canine unit, according to the Post-Distpatch.
