TOWN AND COUNTRY, MO (KPLR) – Public comments once again in Town and Country, for and against the idea of allowing stadium lights at, which was unanimously defeated by lawmakers Monday night.

People on both sides of the issue were decked out again in colors, those for it in blue, those opposed, in red.

Residential neighbors were opposed to the plan, which also would have included a new stadium sound system. The school hoped that having lights would allow for fewer games on hot Saturday afternoons, among other reasons.

A school spokesman said he was disappointed with Monday’s vote, even if the result was not unexpected. He added that the school will meet to discuss what might happen next.
