Blue Springs to hold budget hearing Aug. 28

The Blue Springs Board of Aldermen members met Tuesday night to discuss a variety of issues, including services that need to be provided now that the town has annexed.

Aldermen Sandra Boland said, “We are going to have to start providing street lights.”

The Town of Blue Springs still does not have sewer, which the board discussed as being a problem that would deter possible developers. The board discussed looking into grant funding for a sewer system.

The board also discussed raising the millage rate, which is currently at 9.35 mills. 

Aldermen Sandra Boland made the motion to keep the millage rate the same and Aldermen Shirley Allen seconded the motion.

 A budget hearing will be held at 6 p.m. on Aug. 28, 2012 at Blue Springs Town Hall. All public are invited to attend.
