Letters to the Editor


Here are a few questions for the current aldermen of Belleville:

▪ Are the million-dollar upscale homes being proposed in unincorporated Belleville yet another pipe dream?

▪ Will Belleville pay to extend the city sewer and annex the property before the homes are constructed?

▪ Will the tax rebates and construction of the public roadways be enough of an incentive?

▪ Will this upscale neighborhood require taking a police patrol away from existing citizens?

▪ Could stretching the fire district effect the city's ISO 2 rating, causing higher home insurance for all citizens?

▪ What's wrong with the rich paying their fair share of the property tax?
