Repairs have been completed after a broken water main caused disruptions in Jefferson City.
Missouri American Water says a 6-inch main broke Tuesday morning and that repairs wrapped up Tuesday afternoon. A boil advisory remains in effect. Missouri American has about 10,000 customers in Jefferson City.
Forty-seven percent of respondents to a recent survey conducted by the Jefferson City School Board favor a plan to build a new high school in the city. The school board purchased a tract of land in the beginning of October to build a replacement campus for the city’s current high school.
Jefferson City voters will need to approve the proposal because it would cause a property tax increase. Joy Sweeney, president of the city’s Board of Education, explains how taxpayers would help fund the new campus.
Jefferson City Council will hold a public hearing to discuss a proposed noise ordinance Monday.
The proposed noise ordinance limits sound levels in both commercial and industrial zones, as well as in residential areas. The ordinance contains limits that specify maximum noise levels for both day and night. Ralph Bray, Fifth Ward City Council member, said the proposed ordinance will be beneficial because it establishes a way to measure noise levels efficiently.
A Mizzou helmet and an SEC helmet were on display at the announcement. Sunday, Nov. 6, 2011. Announcer Mike Kelly was unable to find the white helmet for the official presentation to Brady Deaton earlier in the press conference. Photo by KAREN MITCHELL
