ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. — St. Louis County Executive Sam Page taking a few steps to make sure county residents don't have any unnecessary hurdles when it comes to flood recovery.
In a press release, Page announced he would be waiving permit fees related to flood recovery work. Additionally, the county will be registering contractors able to perform flood recovery work to protect residents from scammers.
