Neosho discusses performing arts center partnership with the school district

Neosho City Council Meeting Discusses Possible Partnership

NEOSHO, Mo. – The City of Neosho, Missouri and the Neosho School District are looking into a partnership regarding the construction of a new performing arts center at the school.

The city will waive some project fees in exchange for the school district handling construction features including: two crosswalks and sidewalks, rerouting hill street north of the high school and improving storm water handling at the site.

“I appreciate their willingness to work with us, said Neosho School Superintendent Jim Cummins. “It’s one of those situations where we are all kind of here to support our kids and our town. They got to think about their bottom line, and we’ve got to think about ours.”

The Neosho City Council Tuesday considered initial approval of the agreement. The council also voted to accept a $2.5 million grant to address flooding issues.

The city is contributing $150,000 to that effort.
