Veto session ends, funds released

September 19, 2014

The Missouri State Legislature overrode a series of bills vetoed by Gov. Jay Nixon last week in Jefferson City, Missouri.

The veto session was Sept. 10-12 following Nixon’s veto of more than 200 line items from the state operating budget. Nixon also withheld funding for higher education in response to a series of tax cut bills passed earlier during 2014 that would decrease state revenue

Nixon relented the $2,089,000, or about 5 percent of Truman’s annual allocation money from the state, that previously was withheld because his vetoes on tax-cut bills were not overridden.

David Rector, Vice President for Administration, Finance and Planning said before the veto session there were some vetoes he would not like to be overturned, as they would lead to a release of the withheld money. […]

Contractors finish road construction

September 11, 2014

City of Kirksville employees and contracted construction companies are finalizing a series of projects around the city and Truman State’s campus that will end a summer of major roadwork and street overhaul.

The renovated streets span the residential areas of Kirksville as far north as Dogwood Drive and as far south as LaHarpe Street, as well as some of the business district near New Street and areas close to campus such as Halliburton Street and Normal Avenue. Construction began almost immediately after the spring 2014 semester ended.

Asphalt, concrete and general street maintenance projects have specifically targeted damaged areas of Kirksville roads. Streets chosen for repair varied in degree of damage. The Street Maintenance division took on streets in immediate need of repair. For the busier roadways requiring a more long-term approach to their construction, the City Engineering department hired contractors to complete the upgrades. […]
