The City of Lee's Summit and the LS R-7 School District faced off this week in a duel of big announcements. OK, it wasn't really a face off. Nor was it a duel. But there was big news coming out of both City Hall and the Tony Stansberry Leadership Center as the mayor held his annual State of the City address and the R-7 Board of Education met and approved the CFMP team's recommendation to move 6th into the middle schools in 2022-2023 school year.
This week's City Council meeting consisted of the annual discussion of the municipal tax levy. Jason and Nick take some time to break down what this annual review is and what it means for the average Lee's Summit tax payer and resident.
For this Friday conversation host Nick Parker sits down with Ben Rao to talk about the upcoming Lee's Summit Chilifest and to celebrate the entrepreneur's 1-year anniversary of the Bridge Space coworking space in downtown Lee's Summit.
This week, we remember 9/11, we remind ourselves to keep talking about mental health and we take a look at the CFMP team's recommendation to the Board of Education — which includes moving sixth grade students out of elementary and into middle schools.
