Mayor Linda Goldstein spoke in favor of the resolution supported by mayors across the country. One alderman voted against the resolution.
The Clayton Board of Aldermen on Tuesday night approved a resolution that supports the Fix Guns Checks Act, which is supported by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a nationwide coalition of mayors. “We’re supporting federal legislation to tighten up the gun laws,” Mayor Linda Goldstein said. “This isn’t about banning guns. It’s about making sure they don’t get into the wrong hands.” Goldstein said after the vote, that from a practicality standpoint, Clayton passing the resolution alone will make no difference, but the 850 cities nationwide that have signed on to Mayors Against Illegal Guns will be a statement. The vote on the resolution was 6-1, with Mark Winings, Ward 3 Alderman the only dissenter. “Generally speaking, I have a discomfort with…

Decorative paper authorized by the city can be placed in empty store fronts instead of traditional butcher paper to keep the area looking attractive.
Decorative paper authorized by Clayton may be used to touch up vacant store fronts following a Sept. 11 vote by aldermen.

Vacant store fronts can be problematic because they can "create the impression of a deteriorating area, depressed property values, reduced pedestrian attraction and comfort," the ordinance states. By offering decorative window paper, the city can "help combat …

Clayton aldermen have returned to the city's Plan Commission a proposal that would amend zoning code to permit bank drive-throughs near homes in some neighborhoods.

At issue is whether drive-through establishments for financial institutions should…
