This Sewer Tax Stinks!
Between the TDD, TIF, Sewer Bond and Road construction I was told our city will be $100,000,000 more in debt at the end of this year than 18 months before. DO WE REALLY WANT THAT?
That’s sounds more like Washington D.C. NOT POPLAR BLUFF!
Over the last few years I’ve become more and more aware of the wasteful spending of Municipal Utilities. Just ask someone in the know one of these questions:
How much money does the City LOSE from the Plum Point Energy Plant in Arkansas?
How much money do we LOSE by having our own electric generator that doesn’t operate but a few times a year?
I was told by an anonymous source that the CITY LOSES approximately $3,000,000 (yea, $3 Million) every year on these two line items. A $3 million dollar yearly loss because those in charge have made terrible decisions.
Have you heard that one of our new water towers cannot be filled to the max because it wasn’t built at the right height and causes backflow water problems in our system?
How can we trust MU with $20,000,000 more?

Say NO to the Sewer Tax!
Vote No on the following question on November 6th:
CITY OF POPLAR BLUFF, MISSOURI, QUESTON
Shall the City of Poplar Bluff, Missouri, issue its combined waterworks and sewerage system revenue bonds in the amount of $20,000,000.00 for the purpose of extending and improving the City’s combined waterworks and sewerage system, the cost of operation and maintenance of said combined waterworks and sewerage system and the principal of and interest on said revenue bonds to be payable solely from the revenues derived by the City from the operation of its combined waterworks and sewerage system, including all future improvements and extensions thereto?
