BOARD BILL NO. [12] 54

INTRODUCED BY ALDERMAN ANTONIO D. FRENCH

An ordinance authorizing and directing the Street Commissioner to take all necessary actions to honorarily designate the 3800 block of Clarence Avenue as "Rev. Robert D. Strong, Sr. Avenue."

Whereas, Rev. Robert D. Strong, Sr. is the Pastor of Kossuth Church of God in Christ, located at 3801 Clarence Avenue; and

Whereas, he has served as their pastor for the last 35 years and members believe that he has not only served their church with love, compassion, and concern, he has also served this community, the 21st Ward with the same attitude; and

Whereas, in 1999, the church had populated so much that the church officers saw the need to enlarge the edifice. It was their desire to move out of the city. However, Pastor Strong's desire was to continue to serve this community. Thus the present new and larger building was built in 2004; and

Whereas, under Rev. Strong's leadership the following ministries have been started: "Flame of Fire" Radio Broadcast, Food Program, Hot Lunch Program, Multimedia Ministry, Educational/Scholastic Motivation, Substance Abuse, GED Assistance Program, Prayer Request Hot Line, Bible Study Curriculum, Kossuth Elderly Apartments, Prison Outreach and Bus Ministry; and

Whereas, the Kossuth Church is also a member of the Urban Initiative Program; partnered with the SLATE program; partnered with different schools providing the opportunity to do Community Service; and we partner with the Food Hotline Network.

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY OF ST. LOUIS AS FOLLOWS:

SECTION ONE. Pursuant to the provisions of Ordinance 68937, the 3800 block of Clarence Avenue shall hereafter be honorarily designated as "Rev. Robert D. Strong, Sr. Avenue." The Director of Streets shall erect an honorary street-name sign which shall read "Rev. Robert D. Strong, Sr. Avenue."
