Lindenwood owns Belleville?

August 5, 2013 

Lindenwood paid Belleville taxpayers $1 for a multimillion school property and then made Belleville pay $115,000 to supposedly fix the tennis courts.

Lindenwood is now dumping yard waste and trash on Belleville property behind the football field. Just the other day I was hassled by Lindenwood police, who along with maintenance people, drive golf carts all over streets, sidewalks and alleys against Illinois Rules of the Road.

Lindenwood does not control Belleville yet, or does it? Football practice on Union School's playground. They don't want anyone on their property, but don't have a problem with going on Union School and running on taxpayer sidewalks.
