Louisiana is moving slowly but steadily toward upgrading its riverfront.
The City Council has given the Bicentennial Riverfront Commission the green light to negotiate for land and allow the city administrator to pursue a request for proposals on a design.
Mayor Bart Niedner cautions that the moves are preliminary steps and that the city is as much as a year away from a public hearing and a final decision.
One proposal calls for the city to support closing the South Carolina Street railroad crossing in exchange for Burlington Northern Santa Fe providing money and land to make the riverfront improvements.
Specifics have not been outlined and the city has not voted to spend money or approve an offer with the railroad. The public hearing would be held once a firm proposal is in place.
Missouri Senator Roy Blunt says there’s a long way to go before problems at the Veterans Administration are corrected.
The Republican met with Northeast Missouri veterans Wednesday (Aug. 26) and said he’s frustrated at the pace of changes.
It’s been more than a year since reports first surfaced that at least 40 former military personnel died while awaiting appointments at the Phoenix VA hospital. The scandal widened when an internal audit revealed that more than 120 thousand veterans across the country saw delays in care or never got it.
Veterans told Blunt at Wednesday’s stop in Hannibal that the VA still has not worked out the bugs. One concern cited was that VA doctors weren’t giving them follow-up appointment times.
The FBI opened an investigation last year after the allegations arose. Blunt said Wednesday that the Veterans Administration needs to be more concerned about what’s good for veterans, not what’s good for the VA.
A new report says farm income is expected to drop by the largest percentage in more than three decades.
USDA on Tuesday said net farm income for all of last year is expected to drop from 91 billion dollars to 58 billion. That’s the biggest decrease since 1983.
One reason is a downturn in the agricultural economy brought on by record crop prices and increased land values. Net farm income almost doubled between 2006 and 2011, but has decreased since then.
The government says one bright spot is that production expenses are expected to fall for the first time since 2009.
Illinois regulators may decide in November whether to approve a controversial high-voltage power line.
The Illinois Commerce Commission has finished up almost a week of hearings on plans by Clean Line Energy Partners to build the Grain Belt Express through the state.
The news comes almost two weeks after the Missouri Public Service Commission rejected Clean Line’s request for a re-hearing because it said the utility did not show sufficient reason. Missouri in July rejected Clean Line’s plan, saying it did not adequately show that the state or landowners would benefit.
The Houston company proposes using wind generators in Kansas to produce electricity and transmit it along a 750-mile route to Indiana and on to the East Coast. Randolph, Monroe and Ralls counties in Northeast Missouri and Pike and Scott counties in West-Central Illinois are located on the route.
Clean Line says it is reviewing its options for Missouri.
Louisiana may be closer to a major upgrade of a huge asset.
The Bicentennial Riverfront Commission will update the City Council Tuesday (Aug. 25) about a proposal involving Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad.
Under the deal, the city would support closing the South Carolina Street railroad crossing in exchange for Burlington Northern providing money and land to make the proposed improvements.
Mayor Bart Niedner supports the deal and says the city is in a good position to negotiate.
Tuesday’s meeting will be in closed session because it involves land acquisition. The council could reject the proposal, table discussions or give Niedner the green light to reach a deal.
