On Tuesday, Cole County residents will be re-voting on proposition one. If approved, measure would extend the boundaries of the Jefferson City area by approximately 160 acres.
Although they are not technically in the city, some Meadow by the Club residents are crossing city limits even as they exit their neighborhoods. If approved, proposition one would characterize these residents, two hotels and one furniture store as living in city limits.
Opponents of a Cape Girardeau ordinance that established an urban deer hunting program say they have enough signatures to put the issue to a vote.
The Southeast Missourian reports the organizer of Keep Cape Safe says more than 3,000 petition signatures are on hand and notarized. Only 2,446 signatures are needed to get a referendum on the ballot.
The City Council in July approved bow hunting of deer inside Cape Girardeau City limits. Last week the council rejected a request to put the deer hunts to a public vote, prompting opponents to begin the petition drive.
