A St. Louis alderman plans to file a bill this week that would let voters decide whether the city contributes funds to a proposed riverfront football stadium that aims to keep the Rams from leaving town.

Alderman Megan-Ellyia Green’s bill will is on the Board of Alderman’s meeting agenda for Friday.

Meanwhile, the office of St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay is working on a bill that would allow public funding for the stadium without a public vote. That bill is expected to be filed next week.

Leaders of the task force behind the stadium effort have said the city would contribute 15 percent of the cost of the project, which is expected to be about $1 billion.
