City of Joplin mails quarterly newsletter for citizens



City of Joplin residents recently received the January 2014 issue of “The Citizen”, the City’s quarterly newsletter in their mailboxes in the past few days.

This issue includes an article announcing the release of Joplin Pays It Forward, a book of essays on the lessons the community learned from the 2011 disaster. Residents may also be interested in the article announcing the exhibition of a local artist Thomas Hart Benton’s work at City Hall.

An article regarding the Joplin Housing Assistance Program (J-HAP) can be found on page 3 of January’s newsletter. J-HAP is a forgivable loan program created to help potential homeowners buy homes in the redevelopment area. The program is part of a plan to combat population loss and encourage population growth. More information on J-HAP and its qualifications can be found in the article.

Other articles include a highlight of children’s activities at the Joplin Public Library and an explanation of trash pickup procedures during periods of inclement weather.

The January 2014 newsletter is the first of the quarterly publication for 2014, with the next issue to be published in April. The newsletter is mailed to every household in the City of Joplin, as well as posted on the City’s website at www.joplinmo.org/pdf/citizen.

For more information or to submit ideas for upcoming articles, contact Lynn Onstot, Public Information Officer, at 417-624-0820, ext. 204.
