Abstract:     
This article addresses the perceived inadequacy of the State of Missouri’s statutory tools to modernize local government. Some of the more extreme examples of conflicting and obsolete provisions in the laws affecting local government in Missouri are discussed. In many instances these obsolete statutes severely restricted the operations of municipalities. The article also looks at laws relating to special benefit districts, problems in county government, and the issue of home rule. Many of the concerns addressed in this article have to do with the overlap that exists among political subdivisions within a given area, such as counties, cities, and special districts. The article suggests that a solution must take into account the complex inter-relationships among these subdivisions in order to achieve coordination while preserving a truly local and representative system of government.
