Joplin Council Endorses Use Of Remaining Recovery Funds

JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) – The Joplin City Council has approved allocations for the remaining $97 million in federal tornado recovery funds.

The council on Wednesday voted to spend $50 million on infrastructure repairs, such as sewer and sidewalk projects, in the low- to moderate-income area of the tornado zone. Some of the money was shifted to increase funding for a program that gives financial incentives for buying a home in the tornado zone. Other funds will go to the Jasper County Juvenile Detention Program and Ozark Mental Health Services.

The Joplin Globe reports  Joplin received two allocations of federal disaster-recovery money after the 2011 tornado. The city had already committed to spending about $43 million of the two grants.
