This week's regular Neosho City Council meeting has been pushed back to Thursday, in light of Tuesday elections.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Civic, 109 W. Main.

Mayor Richard Davidson said waiting to hold the council meeting until after knowing the election results — and the fate of a proposed $1 per $100 of assessed valuation city property tax — would give city management a couple of days head start in mapping out possible directions for the city to take financially, depending on the outcome at the polls.

“This way we can have a productive session and already begin the discussion about what way we're going to go from here, depending on the results of the election,” Davidson said.

He said the city council has a lot of decisions to make in the month of August and that waiting until the results are in before meeting in regular session might save the council from having to schedule a special session later.

Davidson said he didn't know why the meeting location was moved to The Civic.
