The Holts Summit community and the American Red Cross are assisting the residents of the Evergreen Apartment complex after a fire last Friday.

“We’ve been meeting their immediate needs with some funds to buy food and clothing since most of them lost everything in the fire,” said American Red Cross Disaster Specialist Kath Mayne.

Holts Summit voters will decide on Nov. 6 whether to renew a 20-year-old sales tax. The .05 percent sales tax is earmarked for capital improvements and if renewed, would continue until 2033.

Holts Summit City Administrator Brian Crane said the city primarily used the original sales tax revenue to build a new sewage system. He said the renewal would expand upon necessary improvements to city infrastructure.

Pro Food Systems Inc. is planning to add 43 jobs within the next five years at its operation in Holts Summit.
