Updated 2:20 on Monday with news of St. Louis Economic Development Partnership subpoena.
A federal subpoena was issued last week seeking information about St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger’s administration.
One particular focus was how Stenger’s administration issued contracts, which has been a source of contention for months between the Democratic chief executive and the council.
Councilman Sam Page, D-Creve Coeur, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that a federal grand jury issued a subpoena to St. Louis County. Page read the subpoena during a meeting with St. Louis County Counselor Peter Krane last week. Among other things, the subpoena sought Stenger’s call history, texts and emails with employees regarding contracts.
