If you’re a Joplin resident, you may not have to pay up to 75 percent of the city’s cost of paying to handle traffic issues in your neighborhood.
The Joplin Traffic Commission has voted that the city instead should pay 75 percent with residents paying the rest.
The issue arose out of complaints about speeding on 36th street west of Connecticut Avenue.
The Joplin Public Works Department has suggested putting in speed humps and adding stripes and signs.
A plan could be finalized next month.
