WINDSOR, MO – Budget cuts seem to be hitting a small Missouri town very hard. So much so, that they’ve cut back on the toilet paper supply. The Mayor of Windsor gets why it might be funny to some folks. Everybody likes potty humor. But, he wasn’t laughing.

“The number one emotion is embarrassment. We have a lot of good things going on in our little town. And this is the topic.” said Mayor Justin Brown.

It was Tuesday when a woman came to the podium at the Board of Alderman meeting and asked if she could do some fundraising for the city. They were all smiles.

“And then that’s when she told us it was for toilet paper for the men at the city barn.” said Mayor Justin Brown

Nancy Dunbar was the one at the podium. The mayor learned indeed the men at the public works barn had been supplying their own TP.

Dunbar says others who stuck around after she left heard the administrator admit she was behind it.

The city administrator didn’t want to go on camera. BUt she told me over the phone that she never made any remark about the guys having to bring their own TP or even about them using too much. She says the public works director told the guys that the budget was tight and things somehow spun from there. The public works director did not return my call.

“We are always looking for ways to save money. We always are. I’m just fearful that this finally hit a fever pitch and this is where it got ridiculous.” said Mayor Justin Brown.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
