Voice of the people: Action on curbing Page's power delayed by thousands of public comments on virus

CLAYTON — Before the St. Louis County Council could take action Tuesday night on controversial bills curbing County Executive Sam Page’s and the health department’s authority to issue emergency orders during the COVID-19 pandemic, the public weighed in with prepared emailed comments.

Two thousand, two hundred and thirty comments.

The number of comments — likely a record for any council meeting — reflected a roiling power struggle between Republicans on the council and Page, a Democrat, over the county’s public health measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

At previous meetings, facing hundreds of comments, council members voted to limit the public comment period to two hours. But no such limit was set Tuesday night.

More republican shenanigans as they try to get the mask mandate overturned in St. Louis County.
