Can anyone think of a time when Moberly's leadership has been so piss poor?

The City Council, Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development.

Do these people actually do anything other than watch the community crumble?

We have to give praise for our councils' "successful" "Community Spotlight" program. By sending their investigators (inspectors?) out to covertly photograph (LOCALLY NORMAL) run down properties,(especially those of the handicapped, disabled, and unemployed), and plastering them on our fine city website and the pages of our city rag,(for public discrimination if NOT "public" vote as "most distressed") they have "beautified" our city.(Too bad it didn't bring in new buisness as it was implied it would.)
Gotta give it up to them for the idea of a free trip to the dump in the middle of winter for citizens with no vehicle or trailer, let alone cash for gas, or the ability to wheel out in the snow to clean up whatever our council frowned upon.
That is intelligence and leadership at its finest.

So it is progress to bring foreign companies to our "American" soil, and place our community in financial dependence to them? Then perhaps we can take our wages from this "progress", spend it at Walmart, and it will go directly back to their country.
Only in mid-"AMERICA"?
Perhaps, with new job opportunities, for immigrants, our government will allow hundreds of new visas for them to come and replace those Americans who will be fired and laid-off, assuring jobs for the wave of immigration to come?
I really see progress and a future for the U.S.C.,(United States of China).....
Call it pessimism....or realism?

Didn't know such an "important" and "progressive" "PUBLIC?" program no longer existed - guess I missed the PUBLIC? announcement of its demise? I would think the end of such a vital public program would have been posted, just as the handicapped properties were plastered up for public degradation?
Thank you for informing us,(the public)- sorry to see it bothers you to be reminded of the futility and failure of such a waste of city funds and time, resulting only in proving the foolishness of a program created and carried out by our civic "servants"....
I would think it should not be forgotten, for AT LEAST the length of time that it persecuted and humiliated the unemployed, poor, elderly, disabled, and handicapped CITIZENS of our great community?
I will have to research how long the persecution lasted, but believe it was well over a year...unless you can inform us of that as well?
Losers is right. JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL.

According to this link - http://www.moberlymonitor.com/news/x359572438...
our civic servants strove to "eradicate blight" by persecuting and humiliating the unemployed, poor, disabled, aged and handicapped.
We all know they are the "blight" of our society, can't kill 'em, might as well persecute them....

This ended in 2009 also, but is still worth consideration....

I'll die complaining, poor and persecuted before hanging with crooks who persecute those whose money they waste frivalously, to out of town kickbackers....

This city Manager is not helping--who does the hiring? Come on! And no, you can't help because if you get voted on the City Council--its one against all of them and you will get out voted!

Couldn't disagree more! I don't know Mr. Morris personally but he is definitely an asset to Moberly and he is a very positive role model. People are grateful for his service to our community.

Since you "don't know him personally", could you enlighten us on what he has done or how our city has improved. I mean that openly and fairly. I honestly would like to know and then I may stand corrected. Speaking with employees, that is not the impression that I have gotten and I have not "seen" much. But I will be the first to say, somethings are done behind the scenes and sometimes "forgotten about".
