Wow, another tax increase for O’Fallon residents.
The City Council voted 12 to 1 to raise taxes I believe around 3.3 percent. Thank you, Mr. Drolet, for the no vote, the only one with enough guts to stand up and say no.
With the addition of new businesses in town, Menards and a few others, that has raised the tax revenues about 2.5 percent. If we would stop wasting money on stupid projects like a bridge walking trail that was there was fine. The State Street sidewalk — I haven’t seen a person use it yet. The bridge over the dead tracks repaving of good streets. Someone made a statement, one of Graham’s cronies, I’m sure that he was a blessing. Yes, like the iceberg to the Titanic.
William D. Bates, O’Fallon
