PEVELY, MO (KTVI) - Pevely Citizens call the You Paid For It Team to their city after the latest push by the Board of Aldermen to keep citizens from speaking before Alderman vote on issues and other city business.
Under the current set up citizens can put their name on the Agenda to speak at the beginning of the meeting.
This week Pevely Aldermen gave first round approval to an ordinance to change that so that they could only address the Board at the end of the meeting. Angry residents call that unfair because it takes away their ability to influence the spending of their tax dollars. By the time they speak, votes would have already been taken.
Investigator Elliott Davis confronts Mayor Pro Tem Ed Walters who defends this deal telling Elliott they don't even have to let the citizens speak at meetings at all.
