   A state representative is working with a group of South County residents to halt construction of a subsidized senior housing complex in their neighborhood.  

   St. Louis County Councilman Steve Stenger says four public hearings were held before the County Council approved the three-story, 45 -unit building and 37 parking spaces on an acre and a half site in the 6000 block of Telegraph Road.  

   Hundreds of Oakville residents gathered at St. Paul's United Church of Christ Wednesday evening to discuss the project.  Most say they were never told about any hearings.  

   State Representative Marsha Haefner says that's a problem. "The biggest issue is the lack of transparency," Haefner said.  "And putting such a large complex on such a small site."

   Haefner says she believes citizens can request new hearings if it can be proven that proper notification procedures were not followed.
