"The long-delayed Loop Trolley project is asking for an additional $500,000 from St. Louis County, which already has kicked in $3 million," reports Mark Schlinkmann.

"[T]he extra county dollars would, among other things, allow the trolley to have longer operating hours and thus improve its chances of success," adds Schlinkmann to explain the extra request.
