Zoo-Museum board member steps down

ST. LOUIS C OUNTY, MO (KTVI)– At Tuesday’s St. Louis County Board meeting there was talk about the now former Director of the Zoo and Museum District Pat Whitaker.

The resignation comes after Whitaker`s architecture and interior design company Arcturis became a finalist for a bid to do contract work for the Science Center.  Whitaker says she consulted with an attorney who advised her to resign because of a conflict of interest between her role with the county and her company. We caught up with County Executive Charlie Dooley who says Whitaker did the right thing. She had only been in her position for three months

“I`ll move forward in a timely manner and quickly to find someone to take her place.  We will do the same process moving forward and go over any conflict of interest. Again it depends on what the person puts down and what they tell me, but we do ask appropriate questions,” said Dooley.
