ST. LOUIS Judge Hears Debate Over Warmann Fleet

St. Louis Circuit Judge David Mason heard arguments Wednesday on how the city assessed Floyd Warmann's riverfront fleet damaged during the flood of 1993.

Mason took the case under advisement. He must decide whether an $11,000 past-due 1994 property tax bill based on the fleet's assessment is valid.

Mike Stokes, attorney for the city tax collector, said Mason will decide if the $11,000 bill is correct or if an earlier bill for $3.53 is correct.

If Mason rules that the $11,000 bill is valid, Warmann could lose his riverfront lease, which at one time could have netted him $41 million from a casino firm that wanted Warmann's spot under the Gateway Arch.

***** ST. LOUIS Demolition Request Might Be Delayed

St. Louis Heritage and Urban Design Commission officials say they'll decide today if the proposed demolition of the Syndicate Trust and Century building will be on the agenda for today's public meeting.

The item has been on the agenda for more than a week. But Virginia Kelly, a spokeswoman for the commission, said the discussion might be postponed because the city counselor's office asked for more time to prepare for the meeting.

Owners of the building, which once housed the Scruggs, Vandervoort and Barney department store, want to demolish it initially for a parking lot; later, they'd build a parking garage with street-level retail.

The 16-story structure - actually two main buildings joined together by a third - stands on a block bounded by Locust, Olive, Ninth and 10th streets.

For information about the meeting, call the commission at 622-3400. The meeting starts at 5:45 p.m. in Room 208 of City Hall.

***** FESTUS New SBA Office Will Aid Disaster Victims

Employees of the U.S. Small Business Administration will open a temporary office in Festus today to help homeowners, renters and business owners apply for disaster loans.

The office is in the Festus Community Center, 215 North Mill Street. It will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and Friday, and it will reopen during the same hours from Monday through June 24.

The SBA loans are part of the federal Individual Assistance Program available for victims of flooding and storms in 24 Missouri counties, including Franklin, Jefferson, Lincoln, St. Charles and St. Louis counties, the city of St. Louis, and the Illinois counties of Madison and St. Clair.

Denise Norman, an SBA spokeswoman, said SBA loan applicants do not need appointments to get assistance at the Festus office, but they should call 1-800-462-9029 beforehand to register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
