To the Editor:
I was surprised to learn that over 60 percent of the city water and sewer employees do not live in O’Fallon and that they make an average of $81,000 a year with free health insurance.
No wonder they are not worried that our property taxes could increase by $395 a year or the city sales taxes could be raised 25 percent. If they don’t live here, why would they care, as long as they keep their highly compensated jobs.
I want to encourage all REAL RESIDENTS of O’Fallon to VOTE YES twice on the referendums on April 7 to prevent new taxes and raise a minimum of $50 million for the city to use on important improvements to our roads and parks. Don’t listen to outsiders who do not live here and are only concerned about their paycheck.
