From early as 2000, when city manager Sam Listi came to Belton, the mayor and city council have repeatedly ignored citizen’s requests to improve areas in south Belton that are dangerous and have dilapidated infrastructure and poor aesthetics.
Many south Belton citizens rely on good transportation systems (roads and sidewalks) to get to stores, public buildings and restaurants. Currently, due to existing, dangerous conditions of sidewalks, pedestrians are forced to walk in the streets which create more danger to the public. They simply do not care.
Many homeowners are not aware that when they purchased their homes, even though the property they purchased is within their property pins, a dangerous sidewalk that always existed in front of their home, in the city’s right-of-way, is the responsibility of the homeowner to repair. Should a pedestrian trip, fall and become seriously injured, the nightmare becomes that of the homeowner. The homeowner is liable and can be sued.
The Belton Journal is not listed above
due to the owner's refusal to publish news or opinion letters from citizens who oppose the actions of Belton's elected officials. The journal should not be considered as a serious news source, but merely a church's bulletin.
