A bizarre story out of Missouri, as reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch :
In Franklin County, it takes one man to make a village.
Developer Bradley Ferguson is seeking a vote that would allow him to build a
102-lot subdivision on about 40 acres he owns just outside the Washington city
Only one person would be eligible to vote in the election: Ferguson.
That's why county officials are playing a tense waiting game. Franklin County
commissioners hope the Legislature will repeal the obscure law passed last year
that allows landowners to bypass county zoning by creating their own villages.
That law has county commissioners across the state furious. They gathered in
Jefferson City last week to urge lawmakers to do something about the law.
