About Us

Riverport Sign

The Riverport Project Trust originally maintained the levee privately until 2001 when the Board of Trustees proposed forming a District.  The Riverport Levee District was officially formed in 2002 after a careful review of the costs, liabilities, and scrutiny associated with the formation of a public levee district. 

The District is operated by a Board of Supervisors consisting of five members that are elected by property owners within the District.  Each supervisor serves for a selected period of time with elections being held annually. 

Board of Supervisors

Board of Supervisors meetings are held four times a year: February, April, August and December.  All meetings are open to the public and public attendance is encouraged. 

The Board may meet at other times as necessary to consider special matters of interest to the District. 

The Board of Supervisors is currently comprised of the following members:

  • Robert G. Guller — BEB Management
  • Ryan D. Hodges, President — Duke Realty
  • Christy Lucido, Secretary/Treasurer — Duke Realty
  • Larry Pearson, General Manager — Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre

Financial Information

The District's fiscal year is July 1 through June 30. However, for budgeting purposes, the District operates on a calendar year basis. 

The District engages a certified public accounting firm to audit the District's financial records and to issue an audited financial report on a fiscal year basis. 

The District is exempt from Federal and Missouri income taxes. 

Annual Taxes

The Board of Supervisors in August each year sets the tax levies for each landowner in the District.  This action determines the taxes for each landowner in the District.  The St. Louis County Collector of Revenue prepares and mails the tax bills, usually by October 31, to each landowner in the District.  The County Collector collects all taxes and transfers the revenue to the District. 

Taxes are due by December 31 and become delinquent if not paid to the County Collector by that time.  All property on which delinquent taxes are due are charged a penalty of 1% per month.

Until paid, all levee taxes and penalties constitute a lien upon the property.
