Joplin City Council approves tower and sidewalk installations
Joplin City Council held a meeting Monday evening. One item that was approved during the meeting was the installation of a new wireless internet connections tower at 2340 South Range Line Road. The request came from Grundy Land Group. The close-to-200-foot tower will serve the Innovation Objects building, which is currently under construction.
The Council also approved two sidewalk projects.

Snyder Construction won the contract for $199,952.40. 86% of these costs will be covered federally and again, the rest coming from the Transportation Enhancement funds.
