I ask you to consider all of the amazing Collinsville improvements which were made possible (at least in part) by the county Vision sales tax that was approved in 2003. City Hall rebuilt, Police Station and Fire Station built, major park improvements, Main Street streetscapes and S-Curve overhaul, American Legion building re-roofed and remodeled, and several other projects. That county tax is expiring and now individual cities are asking to renew their portion (at the same rate). There are many more captial improvements to be made as Collinsville continues to grow and prosper. Vote Tuesday April 5th for Collinsville's future. -- Ted Wright 4/2/2106 -- Sample Ballot
