It just really disgusts me that Brentwood politicians think that putting a park where a family company is will make their community look better. I support family owned businesses more than I do corporation owned.
The City of Brentwood is condemning Brentwood Material Company, a local business of 35+ years, to put a parking lot in their location. Drew O'Brien started this business from the ground up in 1987. Not only is this a huge loss for the community, it will impact over 12 families who rely on this business to survive financially.
We understand change is necessary to evolve. We are asking that the City of Brentwood, Missouri steps up and helps us find a new location that won't be detrimental to business, and that is comparable to the current location. Or, alternatively, that they find another access point for their park and leave this business out of the new development. Brentwood Material has been in communication with the city's aldermen and attorney, and no one is stepping up to the plate to help in a way that won't totally put them out of business.
Please help show your support to this local hardworking family and business.
