The district estimated an annual savings of $130,000 when they approved solar panelling for five buildings.
The Mehlville School District has already been able to reap some savings from solar panels atop five district schools, which were installed in December. At the end of last school year the district’s Board of Education approved a 20-year agreement with StraightUp Solar to install solar panels on the roofs of Beasley Elementary, Hagemann Elementary, Bernard Middle, Oakville High and the Witzel Alternative Academy. The panels are expected to offset roughly $130,000 in annual energy costs.

You can drop off old batteries, paint and other toxic materials year-round in Lemay.
The opening of the Saint Louis Household Hazardous Waste center means residents of St. Louis County, St. Louis City and Jefferson County can now drop off pool chemicals, pesticides, gas, oil, aerosol cans, paint—even light bulbs and batteries—all year round. The center opened earlier this week at 291 E. Hoffmeister in Lemay, and will make the current once-a-year collection schedule obsolete, CBS St. Louis reports. St. Louis County solid waste manager John Haasis tells CBS how materials are stored on the site, and when they get incinerated. Read the full story on CBS St. Louis, or learn more information on the center’s website.

The group has asked the St. Louis County Council for its support in the expansion of the national cemetery into nearby Sylvan Springs Park, which is owned by the county.
A St. Louis County veterans group has asked the St. Louis County Council for its support in the expansion of Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery into nearby Sylvan Springs Park.
