SECTION ONE. Ordinance #62588, approved April 7, 1992, is hereby amended to include the following definition:

Check-Cashing Establishment” means a business engaged in cashing checks for the general public as an element of its operation, which exceeds 50% of its gross revenues, and which is not licensed by the appropriate state or federal agency as a bank, savings and loan association, or credit union.


SECTION TWO. Check-Cashing Establishments may be permitted as conditional uses in zoning districts “F”, “G”, “H” and “I” and permitted uses in zoning districts “J”, “K” and “L” if the proposed check-cashing establishment is not located on a lot contiguous with or directly across a street, alley, public or private easement from a dwelling district. If in zoning districts “J”, “K” and “L”, the proposed check-cashing establishment is located on a lot contiguous with or directly across a street, alley, public or private easement from a dwelling district, the proposed check-cashing establishment may be permitted as a conditional use.

SECTION THREE. SEVERABILITY CLAUSE. The provisions of this ordinance shall be severable. In the event that any provision of this ordinance is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unconstitutional, the remaining provisions of this ordinance are valid unless the court finds the valid provisions of this ordinance are so essentially and inseparably connected with, and so dependent upon, the void provision that it cannot be presumed that the Board of Aldermen would have enacted the valid provisions without the void ones or unless the Court finds that the valid provisions, standing alone, are incomplete and incapable of being executed in accordance with the legislative intent.

SECTION FOUR. This being an ordinance for the preservation of public peace, health, and safety, it is hereby declared to be an emergency measure within the meanings of Sections 19 and 20 of Article IV of the Charter of the City of St. Louis and therefore shall become effective immediately upon its passage and approval by the mayor.
