O'Fallon Progress

Letter to the Editor: Voting yes on April 7

To the Editor:

I have been reading the back and forth about the potential lease of our water system.

We all want what is best for O’Fallon, because what’s best for O’Fallon make our community stronger. We need to make the road improvements on Green Mount now before St. Elizabeth’s and Memorial complete construction.

And, we need to make improvements to overpasses to continue to draw retailers like Costco to our city.

The city has done a great job in building a community we love to live in and now we need to encourage them to keep moving forward by voting YES on April 7 to consider a lease of the water and sewer operations that will raise $50 million without raising taxes to pay for these important projects.

Please join me in voting YES on April 7.
