MODOT officials have requested more construction bids to repave every Ozarkers driveway. Health officials hope to receive more H1N1 vaccinations in their stocking. The downtown officials are asking Santa baby to HUD provides loan money to renovate the Heers building.

Springfield residents voiced their wants as well by asking the great elf for another tower to complete the Plaza Towers conquest for multiple structures, free parking for the Christmas tree lighting ceremony and a stop light reduction campaign to remove 3,000 of the 10,000 existing traffic lights in the city.
