When the Neosho City Council meets at 7 p.m. today, at the City Council Chambers in regular session, council members will consider an agenda with multiple items.
In unfinished business the council will hear second and third readings on Bill Number 2018-869, to dispose of surplus property. Some of the items that should be declared surplus include a variety of office and computer equipment, several vehicles, numerous bicycles a guitar, tools, vending machines and many miscellaneous items.
Council will also hear the second and third readings on a proposal to  rezone property located at 1304 Reid Road in Neosho. Lane and Swift requested that a 4.9 acre tract be rezoned from R-1 First Dwelling to R-3 Apartment House District in order to build 13 duplexes with a total of 27 housing spaces.
In correspondence, the council will hear two thank you letters from citizens of Neosho, one recognizing Neosho Police Department Officer Keith Brumfield and the NPD and the other thanking the Public Works Department.
Other items on the agenda include an appeal on a permit deal made by Chad Henry, 522 West Brook Street. Henry wanted a permit on a remodeling project for the property. His request was denied because he did not seek a permit until project completion was near, because there were no professional plans, and because the city requires living spaces to be a minimum of 650 square feet and this is not the case. Henry will make his appeal at tonight's meeting.
A new bill listing additional surplus property will also be heard as new business.
A bill for some budget amendments including a request to move the salary of the animal control office from development services to the Neosho Police Department, approval of emergency repairs made to raw water pump #2, an expenditure previously approved on December 5, and some increased insurance related costs.
A request to amend a public works agreement regarding sewer specifications with Allgeier Martin will be made because of a slight increase in the anticipated cost of $5,000 to $5,088.
Two letters of interest will be considered for one open position on the Neosho Housing Authority board. Letters have been received from Josh Dodson and Kenneth Clevenger.
A report on January financial will be made along with the Fire Department 2017 report, the Neosho Police Department 2017 report, and an update on Celebrate Neosho sponsorships.
