St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley
U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt is asking the Justice Department to help reimburse state and St. Louis-area law enforcement agencies for costs incurred while providing security in Ferguson this month.
The St. Louis County Council has approved up to $1 million in emergency funds for people living in Ferguson who were unable to work or even leave their homes during the crisis.
St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley estimates it will cost from $90,000 to $100,000 a day in police overtime for St. Louis County officers and their efforts in Ferguson.
St. Louis County gave first round approval to a bill allocating up to $1 million from the county’s emergency fund for people living in Ferguson.
Police made up to 15 arrests, and most of the unrest was quieted by midnight.
The Dooley Administration is standing by its refusal to release its copy of an FBI report on the Ed Mueth case.
County officials sought federal help to unravel a $3.4 million computer fraud scheme created by Ed Mueth before he committed suicide last year.
