The St. Louis Board of Aldermen on Friday threw its support behind an effort to bring a Major League Soccer team to St. Louis.
A resolution making it clear that the board will work to pass the needed special taxing districts was approved by a 26-2 margin. One alderman was absent.
The board would also be asked to give the ownership group a partial break on the city’s amusement tax. The rest of that tax would be set aside in a fund to cover the costs of renovations and repairs at the proposed stadium west of Union Station.
