HIGGINSVILLE, Mo – The onset of the Higginsville Country Fair is on the minds of Higginsville Aldermen.  The week of September 12 marks the 38th annual fair.

The end of the current fiscal year will also be an item of discussion in September.  The Budget Committee is expected to meet Wednesday to begin work on a new budget.

Employees will be recognized at the Aldermen Board meeting, September 6.  Pam Allen has been with the city for 30 years in many capacities.  Andy Maxwell with the police department will receive a 5-year service award.

The board will also set new rates for Emergency Services.  They have not been adjusted since 2007, and the increase will reportedly keep pace with the rates of other municipalities.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in council chambers
