What a crock of shyt that is. Spend all that money in Parkfield Terrace?
Go through Cahokia and knock down all the burnt out houses like on Sandy Ridge Rd and all throughout Cahokia.
Put the money where it would do the most good, in Cahokia. This town needs help!
Hmmmm

It's not just Cahokia, GC cops ain't worth a shit either, work hard is not something they know about, they think they put their life on the line everyday, when is the last time you actually had someone shoot at you, that's what I thought, and if you deal with a real tuff guy 4-5 cops beat him down while 4 more hold guns on him then when he's handcuffed you taze him, it's the sad truth, and not likely to change anytime soon

Parkfield Terrace is an unicorporated area meaning no one claims or wants that subdivision.
It's no mans land and no one in their right mind would want to live there.
Bull doze the whole subdivision !!!!

here's a bit of news, in order to promote new building construction you have to remove old housing stock , if a house is a eyesore condemn it and tear it down what is the problem???

You had a police force that would fight crime insted of running away from it.Back when police patroled the streets getting to know people in a town by name. Now they just sit in the station and go out when a call comes in playing with dog .

I am paying higher taxes here than on a house worth at least three times as much in a town up the hill. The main cost goes to Cahokia schools. At least teach the kids not to tear houses down teachers. They tear them down piece by piece here and the parents care not. Pehaps the schools need to earn that money by teaching them just because a house is unoccupied for now does not mean a bank or a wealthy person owns it. Working stiffs pay your way day to day. Many of you anyway. At least treat their property right so every place you rent doesn't look bad because a landlord knows if they fix it up it won't stay that way for more than two weeks.
