Is Macon making some noise with MoDOT?

It appears that Macon is making some noise with MoDOT. There are only 12 days remaining until a decision could be made about the future of the Macon District Office.

The city of Macon is fighting hard to keep the District Office on Highway 63 open, but the new MoDOT five-year plan is calling for that office to be shut down.

All services would be moved to the new District Office in Hannibal.

Residents have been protesting the new plan over the past month and it appears to be paying off.

Last week, hope appeared to be fading, but residents have continued making phone calls, writing letters, starting Facebook groups and letting their voices be heard at meetings and according to City Administrator Allan Muncy, MoDOT appears to be listening.

"I think they are starting to hear our message about the jobs and economy and input on the economy and that's always encouraging when you feel like they are listening," Muncy said.

For information on the final meeting, check the schedule below.
