Not only that, but an incredible waste of our tax dollars. Sewers failing. Others not yet tied in after promises years ago. Potholes galore. Streets falling apart. Yet our mayor spends our money on his pet project here? Wasting thousands of dollars on tents and salary putting them up and down last year. Now wasting more of our tax dollars on permanent structures for his play toy farmers market? And playing favorites to vendors with that by giving some more space at the same price others with 1/3 smaller spaces? Still trying to re-invent the wheel when there are vibrant markets all over other towns that don't cost the tax payers a dime! Come to Crystal City for theirs tomorrow afternoon from 4 - 7 and see how they are supposed to work. Or Desoto on Saturday morning. Or Tower Grove Park with over 100 vendors on Saturdays without a dime of tax dollars going to them.

Instead of complaining on here why don't you get involved to fix the problem?

You must not know how the city of Arnold works. It's their way or no way.

<quoted text>And what exactly would you have me do and how would that make a difference? There were those already on the market committee fighting to keep government out of it. There were those on the council refusing to spend the money on tents for it. I have voted for those people as well as voiced my opinion to them. As far as Arnold Park, that was done without council knowledge or approval, and essentially just "told" to the market committee that is was being done without their input. Maybe presenting facts on here will wake people up to the injustices this administration is doing with our money will work?
You voted for those people???? You are who?????

Go speak at a council meeting. Call your council rep and keep a record of contact. Offer your help and ideas on how to improve it. Have you even called city hall to offer ideas on how to improve it and talk to someone? How do they know there is a problem unless you let them know? They don't. Complaining on here doesn't do anything to help fix it.

instead of covering it up. Keeping it all under wraps doesn't do anything to fix all of the corrupt actions taken in the past and presently. Air everything out, clean up all at one time. Only then will things be able to move forward without fear of backlash.

I voted for the people that didn't want to spend my tax dollars on another government waste of my money. This should have been run outside the city hall. Others are and do quite well and don't cost the taxpayer a dime. By the way, great letter to the editor in the Leader yesterday that should make all of Arnold proud. Seems Suzie Boone made a spectacle of herself while belittling a wheel chair bound man at the market. And thanks to our mayor, not only are we wasting money on this market, but on an inconsiderate parks director.
