The council decided that cheap garbage and free yard waste was more important that public safety. We got new garbage trucks instead of policemen. These were just a few of the alternatives the mayor offered to fund city government but the "Buds" on the council kept voting NO. There is no FREE LUNCH. No firemen were fired and no policemen were fired so it's not all doom and gloom.

It's Ferguson all over again as the Mayor of Baltimore, who's an idiot, and the Governor stood by as the thugs and criminals went wild. Both knew the situation was going to get out of hand yet they sat on their hands and didn't show any force to stop it before it developed into a full blown riot. The National Guard should have been deployed before the situation deteriorated into chaos.…

I didn't sit on every budget meeting because that's not my job, nor do I have the time too. That's what my tax dollars go to, representation. My alderman voted against this budget, as did five others. So my guess is that others who have sat through everything also feel the way I do.

Well, it seems you have all the answers on how the city should manage it's money. I'm glad to know you sat in on every meeting, including executive sessions, and know where every dollar on every line-item of the budget it going. With all of your vast knowledge and presence at these meetings, though, I'm surprised you didn't offer up a better alternative, since it seems you know…

Missouri Farm Bureau opposes Eminent Domain for Grain Belt Express

1 year ago From Illinoisagconnection.com

Missouri Farm Bureau's board of directors has voted to intervene in the Grain Belt Clean Line case which is presently before the Public Service Commission (PSC). Farm Bureau will oppose granting eminent domain to the company for the proposed electrical transmission line which it plans to build across northern Missouri. From western Missouri going east, the line would cross Buchanan, Clinton, Caldwell, Carroll, Chariton, Randolph, Monroe and Ralls counties.

The Grain Belt Express (GBE) "Clean Line" is a High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission line, approximately 750 miles long stretching from western Kansas eastward across Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. Electrical current carried through the lines will come from new wind turbine farms in Kansas.

"Missouri Farm Bureau has long been a defender of property rights whether it involved cases of eminent domain or regulatory abuse," said Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst. "Our board of directors consulted with county Farm Bureau leaders and has voted to oppose eminent domain authority for the GBE project. The benefits claimed by the developers absolutely do not justify the granting of eminent domain to the newly-formed company selling electricity to out-of-state customers."

Clean Line Energy is seeking public utility status from Missouri's PSC so the company can use eminent domain proceedings to acquire easements for the 150-foot-tall transmission towers.
