I recommend they use these checkpoints next year after a couple of the Thursday night events downtown.
Heck, I've emailed them with specifics about safety concerns that could cause serious injury from objects that too close to the Greenway. Benn ab out three years and no response yet.
IBeen here a few years and fireworks have been sold inside the city limits since i moved here. A few years ago they banned the use of them within the city limits and ganadfathered the vendors for period of time (3 or 4 years). No scratch my back deal here.
I have enjoyed all that I have attended. My only problem is how can youth of taxpayers be kept off city streets? I am for full access and have hired security do their job, ensure LE arrests and charges any person under 21 with any alcohol.
Especially the city owned fire damaged and boarded up buildings on Mulberry. The city has owned them since April 2012 and has yet to follow up on the stated plans of demolotion and a green space. Unless the mayor and city administrator consider letting mold grow.
Here's a novel idea -- get creative with expenditure reduction. Fewer steet lights, pay as you go yard waste recycle center ($200K), defund the Chamber of Commerce ($150K), reduce or defund the CVB, eliminate the lobbyist ($25K), and provide the city administrator with a bus token and eliminate the car allowance ($12K) could be a strong start.
type "Pollina Corporate Top 10 Pro- Business States" into your search engine. The repost is not on line as they sell it and ship it for $34.
They also gave the following grades: Unemployment rate - D; Workers Comp - B; Average Teachers Comp - F. The company, to which I have no affiliation, doesn't care where their client relocates. They find out what the company's needs are then look to find the best solution. They praise organizations like the Missouri Partnership and the Missouri Econiomic Development Council. Would you care to explain your definition of "anti-worker?"
Yet, an independent company, which speciallizes in finding in finding matches between companies looking to move and a pro-business environment suitable to their needs, give both the Missouri transportation infrastructure and cost of electricity an "A" grade. They rank Missouri as the #8 pro-business state bassed on 32 factors.
