Patch sat down with Ellisville city officials to confirm or dispel some of the myths surrounding the controversial development. Part three of a series.
Part 3: TIF, TDD and CID—what are they? In a heated council meeting at Ellisville Elementary May 2, Ellisville officials approved a $15 million Tax Increment Finance deal with the Sansone Group for construction of the Walmart. More than 100 residents showed up at the meeting, most voicing their opposition against the TIF. Among those in opposition were Mayor Adam Paul and Councilwoman Michelle “Shelly” Murray, the only two on the council to vote against the TIF, which passed in a 5-2 vote. (In Ellisville, the mayor has a vote, but no veto power.) The Sansone Group would receive a $15 million TIF if they chose to also do a Transportation Development District and a Community Improvement District. In a TDD and CID scenario, Walmart would …

Liz Schmidt discusses the road ahead for removing the Ellisville City Council members who supported a Walmart Superstore expected to displace residents, and addresses the city's procedure to replace them.
The leader of a group aimed at removing Ellisville City Council members who supported a Walmart coming to town says she hopes any potential replacements appointed by the mayor look beyond retail in seeking revenue for the city. "I hope people accept who it is, and say, 'I will be willing to work with you,' perhaps to take Ellisville in a different direction than the one we just came from," said Liz Schmidt, chairperson of the Ellisville Article 9 Alliance and a resident of Clarkchester Apartments, which is among properties expected to be demolished under plans for a Walmart Superstore advanced by the Ellisville City Council this month. The project was forecast to generate roughly $500,000 annually for the city, but has come under fire due …

The barbecue joint across the street from Ellisville City Hall opened for the 2012 season Friday.
Barney's Bar-B-Q in Ellisville turns half a century this summer, with the business's first slabs of sweet ribs and hot, smoked chicken served up in the summer of 1962.
