The Break Time does sell alcohol and that is fine. Why do we need ANOTHER business that does exactly the same thing in a neighborhood setting when there hasn't been one there in years? I do not see that this business will be successful based on location alone. Will such a business increase crime and decrease the property values?
I encourage EVERYONE to go to the next meeting. A retail package liquor store DOES NOT belong in a residential neighborhood; especially one with an elementary school on the opposite corner. If you cannot attend the meeting, PLEASE write letters or send emails expressing your concerns. A retail package liquor store belongs in a strip mall along a road like Missouri Blvd. It does not belong in a residential neighborhood with a reputation for being a good place to live.
From what I can see on the MoDOT website; it looks like seating will be limited and reservations are being requested. Perhaps, because of the unique roadway things (like the Callaway plant and I-70), input is being specifically requested from residents of Callaway County. This is just my speculation. Check out the MoDOT site for more information.
From what I understand, it is a forum for all mid-missouri residents. It will be interesting to see what topics are discussed.
The sirens were being used this week? I certainly didn't hear anything or any voice. Maybe the new sirens aren't online in my area.
I wonder how many people forget the raised, non-landscaped ring is for trucks and trailers to hop onto in order to make the trip around the roundabout easier. This is why that particular portion of the roundabout is called a truck apron.
Great job Drum Line! Keep up the great work Mr. Sestak!
From what I understand about "right-sizing" as it relates to the question of if the department was operating with too many employees is that with the funding cut; there won't be as many major new construction projects going on so there won't be the need to have as many employees staffed to fill the need for people power to work on the new projects. Also, I think the director is not being clear enough on the equipment that is being reduced. From what I understand; the department is going to reduce the equipment in the areas of the smaller vehicles, not necessarily the big trucks. Just to clarify, I don't know any more than the rest of you do. This is just my opinion. Please take all I say with a grain of salt. :)
If you go to the following website: modot.org/central/ you can attend the online public meeting for the 179 project. Please notice the plans for this 90 day closing are for the interchange to go BELOW the current 179 highway. This means they will have to take out a significant portion of 179 to construct the road and the bridge above the road that will be connected to 179. I believe that is why they are closing that section of road for 90 days.
It may not be that bad out, but what about those rural roads that might not get as much attention as the main roads. Or perhaps neighborhoods with steep hills. Would you want a bus trying to navigate those roads with the children?
