The article reports on the financial concerns of transit agency MetroLink in Saint Louis County, Missouri. MetroLink has warned that it may need a tax increase to manage through the next budget cycle despite the success in balancing the fiscal 2007 budget in 2006. If Saint Louis County voters do not approve a tax increase, MetroLink will face an operating shortfall in the fiscal 2008 budget.
