ST. CHARLES COUNTY, MO (KTVI) - Are lawyers drumming up business for a lawsuit that could ultimately cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
We caught up with the Mayor of Dardenne Prairie who tried to sign her city onto the lawsuit filed by the City of St. Peters.
St. Peters wants to overthrow the charter amendment passed by St. Charles County voters that outlaws red light cameras in the county.
When Dardenne Prairie Mayor Pam Fogarty couldn't get her own board of aldermen to go along, she signed on as a private citizen. But the lawyers told her; don't worry about the money for legal bills.
St. Charles County estimates this lawsuit could ultimately cost St. Peters up to $750,000 and cost St. Charles County $150,000 to defend itself.
