CLAYTON, MO - The You Paid For It Team has learned that the St. Louis County Council has spent some $30,000 on lawyers it hired in battles against County Executive Steve Stenger.
This is despite voters saying no to them hiring the outside help.
Last August the Council had a measure on the ballot asking voters to give them the power to hire an outside lawyer. Residents voted it down.
But even after the measure failed, the Council submitted a bill for the $30,000.
The Stenger administration said no way, so now this may be another issue headed to courts with the meter running on lawyers.
