A major project is brewing in the city of Marshall. City Administrator Connie Latimer said the Marshall Junction project has hit a minor snag. “They’re trying to figure how to get water there and what we are going to do with [the space]. There is still some discussion about whether it is coming from Marshall or Sedalia. It would be good for Marshall even though that’s outside of our immediate tax base. However, whatever is good for that our area is good for us. Whatever is good for the county is good for us and vice versa.” Click to hear KMZU’s Chelsea Wade talk with Latimer:
A representative from the Pioneer Trails Regional Planning Commission was in attendance Tuesday evening. According to Latimer, the group and city officials will determine the next step in the process of economic development at an upcoming meeting. Council also appointed new members to the Police Personnel Board. William Wright, a professor in Missouri Valley College’s Criminal Justice Program, and David Hayes, the director of the city’s Housing Authority, will join that committee.
