UPDATE 4/4: Link To Full Report Available Here

Missing pages from an investigation report surrounding Joplin City officials, will now be released to the public.

The City Council met in a closed session Thursday night, and voted to release the missing pages and interview transcripts, that were not included in findings originally released to the media and public.

A Jasper County Judge recently ruled the entire report from this investigation should be made public.

The city hired a private investigator to look into ethical conduct of two council members, but that soon changed as the the former city manager, Mark Rohr became the focus.

Council members had three options: to appeal the entire report, appeal part of the report, or to do nothing.

Councilman Woolston made a motion to release the missing pages, and transcripts. The motion passed in favor 6-3.

The report will be released on Friday before the end of the business day, a hard copy will be available for the public to view.
