JEFFERSON CITY - To learn more about regional transportation needs and to reach out to the citizens it serves, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission will hold the remainder of its 2010 monthly meetings in seven cities located throughout the state.
The commission road tour kicks off June 2 with a meeting at the Lee's Summit City Hall and ends Dec. 1 at the Hyatt Regency in St. Louis. Here are the other stops along the way:
July 1 Missouri Western State University St. Joseph
Aug. 4 City Utilities Springfield
Sept. 1 Hawkins Theatre Shelbina
Oct. 6 Ketcham Center Trenton
Nov. 3 Country Club Plaza Marriott Kansas City
The commission typically meets in Jefferson City, home of the Missouri Department of Transportation's headquarters, when the state legislature is in session - January through May. For the past several years, the commission has taken its business on the road from June to December to better serve state taxpayers.
"We want our meetings to be easily accessible to interested Missourians," Commission Chairman Rudy Farber said. "Traveling to other areas of the state offers communities a better voice in transportation issues and also helps us be more informed when making transportation decisions."
Additional information about the commission, including meeting agendas and minutes, can be found on MoDOT's website, http://www.modot.org/.
