WELLSTON, MO (KTVI) – The You Paid For It Team answers the call from a north county resident angry that her kids can't use the playground because the city of Wellston hasn't cut the vegetation and now it's overgrown. All kids can do is look at the new playground equipment in the city park from a distance.
Neighbors even complain of the overgrown park being infested with snakes.
Investigator Elliott Davis talked to an unusually candid Wellston councilwoman who admits the city is a mess. That citizen’s aren't getting service but officials are getting paid.
A judge threw out the last mayor. The Council can't agree on an interim mayor but all the officials are in agreement that they should get their paychecks even if services for citizens are lacking.
