My name is Ron Sconce, Mayor of Troy. I would be honored and humbled to earn the opportunity to continue serving the city of Troy as your mayor. I am asking for your vote.
I was elected Troy Alderman by the people of Ward 1 in 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019. The board elected me president in April 2019 and I took over the mayor’s duties in January 2020 about a month before the pandemic hit.
I realize that because I don’t use social media (I much prefer person to person meetings, which I find much more productive and rewarding) that many of you may not have seen all the things we’ve accomplished this year or how we were able to tackle a few long-standing concerns in addition to dealing with the virus and unrest.
I’d like to tell you about the progress we’ve made with the projects we’ve undertaken, and why I’d like to continue serving as your mayor long enough to see them through.
Progress We Have Proudly Made During My Term
Wastewater Treatment Plant
- For nine years, as an Alderman, I watched as Troy struggled to start production on the new wastewater treatment plant. As Mayor, it became my top priority. It’s been a difficult journey from day one, but within less than a year, the project is already 75 percent complete.
Interceptor Line to New Treatment Plant
- We will soon finish the interceptor line that will connect the Highway 47 lift station to the new treatment plant, and a much-needed crosswalk on Highway 47 leading to Walmart was completed. We’ve also entered into a cost-share agreement with Lincoln County, MODOT, and the city of Moscow Mills to build a service road on the west side of Highway 61 from Troy to Moscow Mills.
The Mennemeyer Road Project
- Another project that was years in the making is the Mennemeyer Road project, finally got underway this year. Construction began in late spring and was completed at the end of 2020. This was a great project that improved major roadway and highway access that I believe will spur economic growth in the area.
Cherry Street Project
- We were finally able to secure a budget and get started on the Cherry Street project this year. The water line is nearly complete, and we anticipate the final stages of construction to start in June.
Continuing on These Strengths
I also have plans to install another sewer line that will eliminate an entire lift station. This will open up new ground for development that could utilize gravity to access the city’s main.
I want to see the projects through to completion and on budget. I sincerely believe the new service road will further ease congestion and spur economic growth. This isn’t the list in its entirety; there are many projects and issues that still needing to be budgeted and discussed.
Ron’s Commitment to You and Troy
I’ve served the city and our community for more than a decade, and when we needed a mayor, colleagues recognized I had the experience and leadership to serve. When the virus rocked our community, and unrest threatened the nation, I was proud of the way Troy managed to thrive while surviving 2020.
I am always available to discuss any issue in person or by phone. (636) 236-3674
Thank you for your time and God Bless,
Ron Sconce – Mayor of Troy
PS. I know Municipal elections don’t have political party affiliations, but many have asked so I’d also like to state for the record that I’ve been a Republican and fiscal conservative since long before it was cool to be a Republican and fiscal conservative in Lincoln County.
