Belleville has wrong priorities

Belleville paid $179,000 for the building and demolition of the property at the foot of Signal Hill on West Main Street where it joins East St. Louis. Another $300,000 might get you the remaining property to provide a proper “Welcome to Belleville” park.

As long as there’s still money in the TIF 3, everything will be fine – unless you think the money would be better spent on filling potholes and repairing curbs in your neighborhood streets.
