Outgoing volunteers of Boards and Commissions to be recognized at Nov. 17 Council meeting


With more than 25 Boards and Commissions, the City of Joplin appreciates the many citizens who volunteer to serve on these committees. Board members serve various term lengths, and often serve several terms to help review City projects, plans and proposals.
