MoDOT proposal generates lively discussion from few at meeting
Tuesday, May 24, 2011
Almost a half-dozen Mid-Missourians stopped by the Transportation Department’s Jefferson City open-house meeting Monday, to hear the department’s reasoning for proposing major cutbacks.
And three of those visitors — along with state Sen. Mike Kehoe, R-Jefferson City and a former Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission chairman — had a lively discussion with Eric Schroeter, interim district engineer.
“I think they answered (questions) other than specific personnel numbers,” said contractor Dick Otke, the only one of the three willing to be interviewed.
