Five of Six MSD Trustees Asked to Resign

St. Louis, MO – There's a shakeup at the Metropolitan Sewer District. A copyrighted Post-Dispatch story says St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay and County Executive Buzz Westfall have asked five of the MSD Board's six trustees to resign.

Slay and Westfall are expected to announce Friday afternoon nominees to replace them.

Recent reports about conflicts of interest among the trustees have put the agency under scrutiny. The new board may also be asked to consider removing a $500 million referendum from the April ballot.
