CLAYTON (KMOV.com) -

St. Louis County Steve Stenger and councilman Sam Page are fighting over St. Louis County’s budget.

Page sent a letter to Stenger on Monday saying the county’s budget is heading towards an $18 million shortfall by 2019. Page also suggested that taxes will need to be raised or spending will need to be cut.

Stenger says there is no budget crisis and that a deficit can be overcome through attrition.

The two also a heated argument in August over the proposed ice rink at Creve Coeur Park.
