I THINK THIS IS GREAT WHAT WEST CITY IS GETTING. I DON'T RESIDE IN THE COUNTY, BUT AN ADJOINGING COUNTY. I HAVE ALWAYS HEARD A LOT OF GOOD THINGS ABOUT THAT LITTLE VILLAGE. THE LAST COMMENT. OF SLAMMING THE CHIEF OF POLICE, I THINK WAS VERY DISRESPECTFUL. IT SEEMS LIKE THE LITTLE TOWN IS DOING SOMETHING RIGHT. I DON'T HEAR OF ANYONE QUITTING. SO THE CHIEF & THE BOARD MEMEBERS & COMMUNITY ARE WORKING TOGETHER. SO SOMEONE THERE IS DOING SOMETHING RIGHT! LOOK AT THE MONEY THEY HAVE, EVEN BEFORE SUPER WALMART!

ISN'T THIS IN EVERY TOWN? IF PEOPLE DON'T LIKE IT, MOVE OR QUIT YOUR JOB & GO TO ANOTHER ONE. BUT, LIKE I SAY, THIS IS IN EVERY TOWN, ETC.

to drew peterson, this is a quiet area, the enite county. my dad resides here in benton. i live in saline cty., but do come to visit my dad, weekly. i get on his computer. my dad has lived in benton for over 20 yrs. now. and I have never heard him complain, except west city does have better streets than benton. I think if you don't like the town you reside in, then you can always opt to move. no one is forced to live in a town. drew peterson, you will love living in this area. rend lake is so beatuiful. alot of wild life at the lake...

West City is not a "wonderful place." It's a village of 700 people with a Wal mart, McDonald's, and a Burger King. Of course they have good cops, but their chief is a major douche, and their mayor that is finally quitting is a corrupt big fish in a small pond loser.

I came through your town about 6 months ago. Our car had broken down and we had little money. The Chief that everyone is talking so cruel about came through for my family. He got us a motel room and food. For a man to give out of his own pocket for a family he doesn't know can't be a bad person. I want to tell him Thank You and tell the towing service Thanks also.

Prerequisite for employment within West City...be a family member of the Mumbower's. The only reason the chief is the chief is because his father appointed him and the current board is too scared to remove him. If he is so great, why was he admonished by a judge for listening in to testimony prior to testifying himself? Or, if he is so great, why does he continue to work in that little burg? Why not apply for a larger department or organization? Why, because the eventual employer would request a background check and, well, he wouldn't want those issues to "sneek up" and "look at him". ;)
