PERRYVILLE, Mo. (AP) — A judge has issued an order blocking a newspaper's request for documents about the resignation of the police chief in southeast Missouri.

Perryville Police Chief Keith Tarrillion submitted his resignation last week amid allegations that he falsified a police report in a personal insurance claim two years ago.

Perryville city officials alleged that Tarrillion used another officer's name to create a police report about vandalism at his home. Tarrillion later received nearly $5,700 from his insurance company. Tarrillion denied the allegations when he resigned Wednesday.

The Southeast Missourian reports that Circuit Judge Ben Lewis has issued an order that blocks the city from responding to the newspaper's records request for documents about the case.

Tarrillion's lawyer says the records constitute a "closed record" under the Sunshine Law.

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — St. Louis County is revising its outdoor warning siren tests.

The St. Louis County Emergency Communications Commission said Tuesday that based on feedback from the public it will reduce the duration of the monthly warning siren test to one minute from three minutes effective with the test on April 1. In the event of an actual tornado, the sirens will sound for a full three minutes.

The commission says the warning system is intended for outdoor notification only and the sirens are not designed to alert people inside of buildings.

The county also announced the installation of two additional sirens last week — in Bridgeton and Kirkwood — bringing the total number of sirens to 199.

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — Preliminary reassessment figures show that the median value of a residential property in St. Louis County declined 7 percent over the last two years.

County Assessor Jake Zimmerman released the figures Monday. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that many properties in areas with high levels of foreclosure sales are down 12 percent or more.

St. Louis County reassesses property every odd-numbered year.

Assessments increased for residential properties in only one school district — 0.4 percent in Clayton. The biggest drop was in the Riverview Gardens School District — 24 percent.

Zimmerman says sales volumes are picking up and the real estate market appears to be recovering.

The values are preliminary and could be changed by the assessor's office until July 1.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich is questioning millions of dollars of welfare payments made to low-income residents.

Schweich released an annual audit Tuesday examining Missouri's use of $12.7 billion of federal funds during the 2012 budget. He raised concerns about $68 million of expenses, mainly through programs run by the Department of Social Services.

As he has in the past, Schweich questioned whether some of Missouri's payments under the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program were allowed under federal law. The department has said that they are.

Among other things, the audit also cited improper payments to some child care providers and noted that the state failed to perform annual eligibility verifications for some senior and elderly residents receiving home-based services.
