Joan from St. Louis, you are right, I've seen the same thing. The houses I'm thinking of are: 3 on Medler (close together), one on the north end and then the one on the highway that has all the cars around it. Our town is beautiful and I'm proud to be from here. Our park is awsome. Also, like someone said, "We now have a DOLLAR STORE". And last but not least,,,,,We have our wonderful school, HOME OF THE BERNIE MULES!!!!

Exactly, now that there is a Dollar Store. People should have a desire to keep the town attractive or be forced to keep it up. There will be more traffic now with more businesses coming into town. Plus the city turned the Armory into a Community Center, that has more folks coming into and noticing the city. More reason to be proud of your town IF folks keep it looking nice. Then more people will be wanting to locate there. But everyone has to work together - city employees,supervisors,mayor,al derman, and the CITIZENS!!!

The mayor is suppose to accept complaints along with the aldermen. There is suppose be a decision to waive the issue for a plan to correct. The decision is to be handed down to the maintenance supervisor. He is suppose to supervise the employees under him. The park is nice, but still needs alot of maintenance. Just stop by and look around for yourself. Oh, don't forget to go into the restrooms.
the mayor was a worthless chief of police and worthless mayor

I highly doubt there will be more traffic due to a Dollar Store that also occupies almost every other town in our county, not to mention most towns in Dunklin County as well.

Can the city of Bernie do something about the horrible site of trashy homes and yards in Bernie? Coming in from Dexter, there is a car lot and you can't even see the home for the trash. Drive through town and trashy yards abound! It's horrible! Please, pick us your yards and make them nice. I don't care what kind of house you have, when the yard looks nice, the house will look nice.


The car lot is owned by a trashy family who probably makeup quite a bit of bernies trashy yards

It is pitiful when you drive through and see our beautiful park and the nice houses, then come across that mess on the highway.

At one time, you were able to walk into the police department and file a complaint on ANY violation of the Municipal or State Codes.

The complaint would be taken along with evidence and statements for turning over to the City Attorney. Then they decided if the case could be resolved without court intervention. If not, it went to court.

Try that now. You will be told they don't get involved in civil matters.

I've heard nothing but good things about Mr. Tilmon. And he's not been in office long enough for anyone to consider him a "worthless" mayor.

I will agree that their year looks horrible. However, is it necessary to refer to them as "trashy?" I cannot speak for the entire family as I am not acquainted with them all, but the ones I do know are very good people. I don't always agree or understand them, but I know they are hardworking and tender-hearted people who would do anything to help others. Please try to refrain from insulting the group when voicing your opinion. There is no need to hurt the feelings of others simply to make a point.

One family has already been in trouble for their filth, had their kids taken away and made to promise they will do better. They got the kids back and are living just like they did before!!!!
