The council approved the development Monday night.
In her last act as councilwoman, Karen McKay voiced her thoughts on the Walmart project.
“If this bill is passed … this building is going to be one of the best buildings built in the City of Florissant,” she said. She gave kudos to the council and administration for reviewing every issue of the project, and she said that she would be supporting the passage of the bill.
Before the council held its final vote, five Florissant residents spoke out on the Walmart, including two women who live behind the project. One woman requested the retail store purchase her home, so she could move from that area.
The council approved the development with a vote of 7-2.
