This August, O'Fallon's voters will be asked to decide on an important ballot issue that will continue to improve the quality of life for O’Fallon residents, Proposition PARKS. If approved by the voters, this this proposition will allow the City of O'Fallon to issue bonds for the construction of an expanded Alligator’s Creek Aquatic Center and the construction of a brand new passive park off of Highway DD called O’Day Park. The cost for all of these projects would be an increase of .02 cents property tax increase per $100 assessed valuation.
Following a discussion on Proposition PARKS at the June 21, 2016 O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce & Industries board meeting, the O’Fallon Chamber Board of Directors voted to endorse Proposition PARKS. The O’Fallon Chamber encourages its members and the community to vote “Yes” in the August 2, 2016 election to support O’Fallon’s parks system.
While the O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce & Industries’ Board of Directors strongly supports the expansion of the parks system for the community’s quality of place, the Board is hopeful that upon approval, the project will have an open bidding process without the constraints of a project labor agreement.
“The O’Fallon Chamber recognizes what the expansion of our parks system means to the community. O’Day Park will be a great asset to the businesses on the southern end of O’Fallon, as it will surely draw visitors from all over the area. The expansion of Alligator Creek will give even more residents and guests a reason to visit our downtown area,” said Erin Williams, President/CEO of the O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce & Industries.
The O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce & Industries is encouraging its members Vote Yes for Propositions PARKS in the August 2, 2016 election.
