Avid golfers may have more room to tee off in Neosho.
The Neosho City Council voted earlier this month to approve a proposed $2.5 million project to expand the Neosho Municipal Golf Course.
The project would expand the course by nine holes, making a total of 27 holes.
Eighteen holes will be open during the four-phase construction project. Funding for the project will come from increased greens and membership fees.
Fishing retail shop Modern Outdoor Tackle moved; Healthy Spot LLC opened; and Springfield law firm Strong, Garner & Bauer PC changed names and moved its office.
