Weather Halting Main Street Construction

The Main Street construction project in Union has been put on hold due to the weather. City Administrator Russel Rost says the freezing temperatures have stalled concrete work for the last two weeks. The project has moved into the downtown area where a majority of the concrete work needs to be done. According to Rost, the completion date has not changed from early April but it all depends on the weather. At this week’s Board of Alderman meeting a change to the projects budget was considered. The additional funds would be used to replace 19 Bradford Pear trees and install additional benches.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
