ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI)– It was a slap in the face for St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley Tuesday night at the county council.

The council put the two Dooley nominees for the St. Louis County Police Board on hold.

One of the nominees was the replacement for former St. Louis County Police Board Chairman Gregory Sansone in the wake of an FBI investigation of his $3.7 million subcontract for work on the new police crime lab.

The council called a special meeting to consider the two Dooley police board nominees, but then adjourned the meeting essentially tabling the nominations.

The council introduced legislation requiring police board members to undergo background checks, they may not vote on the nominees until that’s passed.

Meanwhile, at an earlier police board meeting board member Ray Wagoner announced that he too is stepping down.
