    Neosho School District is asking for a 39-cent increase in its levy. With safety, security, and the future in mind, the money generated by the tax increase would be used for two purposes:

    • To complete construction of a variety of buildings, including a Performing Arts Center, field house and locker room renovations at the high school, and safe rooms at Benton Elementary and Neosho Middle schools.
    • To gain extra money to improve teacher and staff salaries in the future.
    Community meetings are held every Wednesday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the cafeteria at Neosho High School. Additional information can be found online at neoshosfuture.org.
