In today's St. Louis Post Dispatch an article discusses the possibility that the City of Wildwood will probably not accept the petitions of its citizens who want to vote on the building of an $8 million city hall!

Residents collected roughly 3,400 signatures to get two issues on the November ballot. Now they're being told the city may not honor their petitions.


It's sad to see when governments do not listen to the people that elected them to office, especially on the local level. Hopefully, the Wildwood City Council will heed the petitions to allow an issue that involves taxpayers' dollars being spent on this type of project to be brought to the voters. For the huge amount they are spending on this new city hall, it almost sounds like a gimmick like the monorail from the Simpsons. It looks nice, but doesn't work too well.
