BELTON'S NEW GREEN DEAL - BELTON TEXAS CITYCOUNCIL CROOKS
HWY 2271 (DAMNED-TO-DAMNED RD) - Another Belton Boondoggle
To the Editor:
Get ready folks, Belton has a “New Green Deal” coming. However, the Green will be going into developers’ pockets as well as councilmembers solidifying council seats.
The FM2271 project is another boondoggle just like UMHB’s 9th Ave bridge – to serve a few but cost everyone else. Let’s not forget the traffic study by Lee Engineering, LLC in Dallas TX, the bridge “will primarily serve university traffic” have minimal regional use. . . (Temple Daily 11-7-12).
I can already see the hazard of traffic backing-up over the entirety of the Belton Dam due to a crash at HWY 439 and Belton Dam road.
I have a sneaky suspicion that this resurrected FM2271-boondoggle started over Sunday Brunch at the prosperity church on Main St and 6th Avenue by none other than Belton’s City Council-Squad.
Since Gov. Gregg Abbott stopped Belton’s Christian city council officials from stealing land (aka Forceful Annexation) and lying to property owners – they had but one card left - send that overpaid lobbyist to use whatever means necessary to steal land for the Dam-to-Dam Road boondoggle.
Even though all property owners despise a highway wrecking their peaceful neighborhoods with no justification for it, they can expect hidden letters to start going out to state from the likes of KTMPO, mayors, UMHB, BISD, county officials, businesses, developers, etc.

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 racial bias in reporting and owner's refusal to publish news or opinion letters from citizens who oppose the actions of Belton's officials. The journal should be considered merely as Main Street First Baptist Church's personal hallway bulletin .
