A request for an appeal on a permit requested by Chad Henry, Neosho, that the council previously denied was tabled until the next city council meeting on March 6.
Council members would like to gather more information about both the location and the work that has been already completed.                                                                                                                                      Henry had requested a permit for remodeling on property located at 522 W. Brook St.,                     but his request was not granted because the work was performed without any proper permits and no inspections were completed on a unit that will house multiple persons. Plans are for the property to become a 5-unit apartment building but council found numerous issues with the property. Henry appeared at council to make his case and the appeal will be revisited at the next meeting
In other business the council approved a bill to dispose of a variety of surplus items. Items include vehicles, bicycles, office and computer equipment, tools, vending machines, and many miscellaneous items.
Property located at 1304 Reid Road was rezoned from first dwelling R1 district to R-3 apartment house district as requested by owners Lane and Swift who plan to build thirteen duplexes on the site with a total of 27 housing spaces.
Two thank you letters were received and read to the council. One thanked the public works department and the other expressed gratitude to Neosho Police Officer Keith Brumfield.
A budget amendment to move the salary of the Neosho Animal Control Officer from development services to the Neosho Police Department was also approved.  A request to amend an agreement between the Public Works Department and Allgeier Martin for sewer specifications from $5,000 to $5,080 was also approved.
Neosho Public Relations Director and Events Coordinator Paul Richardson also provided information about sponsorships for upcoming city events this year. The Neosho Daily News will have an in-depth article and interview with Richardson in the near future.
The next meeting of the Neosho City Council will be held at 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 6,  in council chambers at City Hall, located at 203 E. Main St., Neosho.
