Neosho City Council will hold the second and third readings of a bill to amend the city code regarding fireworks regulations during tonight’s 7 p.m. meeting in council chambers at city hall, 203 E. Main St.

Council previously voted down an original amendment to the code, which has not been changed since the late 1990s. After making some changes to that first amendment and then approving those changes on first reading at council’s Oct. 21 meeting — with two of the five council members absent — Mayor Richard Davidson intimated that the amendment could undergo some additional tweaking before being given final approval.

Two additional bills are up for final consideration. One would amend the revenues and expenditures in the current fiscal year budget for general administrative budget — health insurance and police department budgets to account for unanticipated health care costs, and for the purchase of an additional police vehicle. The other would amend the revenues and expenditures to officially close out the previous fiscal year (FY) budget, ending Sept. 30, 2014.

Three bids are on the agenda. Council will consider bids for FY 2015 bulk fuel for the public works department and two bids regarding the fire department will be considered, for a roof at fire station No. 2, and for the repair of a fire truck ladder.

In new business, council will hold the first readings on three bills. One would vacate and abandon the alley between Randolph St. and the BNSF Railroad. Another would vacate and abandon the alley between the 700 block of Washington Avenue and Grant Avenue. The third is for the annexation of the property located 12009 E. Missouri Highway 86, as petitioned by Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores.

Council will also consider approvals of: CDBG funds request, the Westrum leak detection agreement, and for professional services.

After reports of city officers, council will consider two letters of interest from citizens desiring appointment to a three-year term on the Airport Industrial Development Board, submitted by Kyle Franklin for re-appointment and by Steve Herrin.
