Tomorrow the Carthage City Council will convene for its bi-weekly meeting. KRPS’s Fred Fletcher-Fierro has more.
At their meeting nearly two weeks ago, it was confirmed that Marian Days in Carthage, which draws 1000’s of visitors to Southwest Missouri, will be canceled due to the pandemic for the second year in a row. While this week, the city council is poised to enter an agreement with the Carthage Humane Society to continue to provide animal control services.
Also, seeking to add more sidewalks in the city, Carthage, in coordination with the State of Missouri and Missouri Highway Transportation Commission, will take the first step to add more ADA-compliant walkways with funds from the Transportation Alternative Funds Program. Finally, the council will likely approve a special use permit for a carnival at the Fair Acres Sports Complex. It’s scheduled this fall during the Maple Leaf Festival the 3rd week of October after being canceled last year. For KRPS, I’m Fred Fletcher-Fierro in Webb City
