Over 70% of our citizens rent the space they live in. These regulations are needed. Period.9 months ago
You know....we could probably sell the City of St. Clair tombstone that sits in front of the gazebo and pay for the spray park! Please, get rid of the darn thing! Or better yet, put it in front of city hall.11 months ago
Giving the caboose a facelift is great! While we are at it, can we PLEASE remove the tombstone at the gazebo next to it? The town has enough problems without advertising with a monument how bad things are. Besides, it hides whatever folks are doing in the gazebo. Heck...the darn thing was not even made by one of our own town vendors. Please remove it before the street party. Give our city a break. It is an eye sore and disgusting. Apr 4, 2012
Is it worth it?
1) How much real cost for Mr. Price, above the 150,000.00.
2) What did the city pay for all the 'documentation' they put together to kill it?
3) How much money has been spent on flights/gas/sleeping rooms to meet with all the state and federal groups?
This administration needs to be held accountable for all of this. If we can not sell the airport, this admin should pay for their follies.
Just wondering how much it would have cost to acquire enough land to allow Leer Jets (business jets) to land here.
So sad. One of the few marbles we have that we could have shined up for relatively NOTHING, and let go to the chance of a strip mall. And we wonder why our city is over 70 percent rental property.Apr 3, 2012
The sad thing is that this administration never took the next step and asked the property owners at the two ends of the runway if they would have sold or donated enough land to the city to allow company jets (Lear Jets) to land in St. Clair. We are talking a few hundred feet.The prior admin was hoping to go this route before the good old boys came back and took the city back into the dark ages. If you don't remember, we had a company willing to build at the airport prior to the lies this admin used to get into office.Aug 21, 2011
Enough is enough. Would the present idiots in St. Clair, the board and mayor, PLEASE remove the tombstone at the gazebo on Main Street? The town has enough problems without advertising with a monument how bad things are. Besides, it hides whatever folks are doing in the gazebo. Heck...the darn thing was not even made by one of our own town vendors. Please remove it before the street party. Give our city a break. It is an eye sore and disgusting.

I also commend the Missourian for supporting the public's need to be part of this process. No one doubts the need for coal burning electric plants now and the near future. The reality is that they generate an ash that contains arsenic,selenium, lead, mercury, and a host of other heavy metal / carcinogenic contaminants. Ameren wants to put this waste next to the plant for obvious cost reasons. This is not only a flood plain, this area is a wetlands. The Missouri River once flowed where the plant is. The water will rise as high as the river floods from seepage underground. Franklin County is making a decision effecting every community that pulls drinking water from the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers downstream of the plant. (Take a minute and Google Earth the Mississippi Valley). I just hope that the concrete bunkers do not turn into concrete flat-bottom boats full of cancer-causing contaminants floating to a community near you. I pray that the county officials think long and hard of what their legacy may be as a result of their decisions on this proposal.Jul 12, 2011
