O’Fallon spending

O’Fallon is doing what they always do: Spending hundreds of thousands of dollars replacing streets and curbs while the more upscale areas and gated communities getting all get new streets.

We spent a couple of million dollars on a bridge to go over a train track that’s no longer being used by the railroad. In the meantime, my street looks bad, along with Oak and Washington streets. I would invite people to drive these streets and make up their own mind if they lived on the right side of the tracks. You didn’t need the sewer and water to sell to get improvements.

The planning of long and short term improvements is really suspect — how we distribute the funds and where they go. Why ignore the areas of O’Fallon that need the most work.
