Port Authority

The public is invited to attend an open house public hearing regarding the creation of a St. Charles County Port Authority from 3 to 5 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 5, at the St. Charles County Administration Building, 201 North Second Street, Suite 542, St. Charles, MO 63301. Those in attendance will have an opportunity to express their views and ask questions regarding the submitted application to the Missouri Highway and Transportation Commission. Attendees can arrive at any time during the open house as there will be no formal presentation.

On Sept. 9, 2019, the St. Charles County Council passed Bill No. 4755, thus creating a new Chapter 170 relating to a St. Charles County Port Authority and Port District. On Sept. 24, 2019, an application was provided to the Waterways and Freight Administrator at the Missouri Department of Transportation. It is the County’s intent to request approval of this application at the Jan. 9, 2020, Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission meeting.
