Did you know the City of St. Louis has an official Decent Literature Council? Its powers are designated according to Chapter 15.32, City of St. Louis Revised Code.
As best I can tell, this is a body that was very active in the 1960s - indeed, St. Louis County had a similar body chaired by Bill Webster.
The seven-member commission in the City seems to have been totally inactive for at least fifteen years. The members are appointed by the mayor.
