Jefferson City Council Decides on New Wal-Mart
Stephen Lepage's family has owned property off of Lepage Road since the 1840's. He may lose some of that farm land if this proposal is passed Monday night.
"The land is at stake because the city council wants to add an interchange at what is considered a dangerous intersection, on Highway 50 and City View Drive," said Lepage.
A Wal-Mart will be added to area as well, which would fund the project, by having an extra tax to those who shop at that Walmart. The Wal-Mart will raise $5.77 million towards the new interchange and the Missouri Depatment of Transportation is contributing $4.8 million.
