City managers once again prepare for international presentation

Posted March 25, 2014 at 6:28 pm

 Maryville’s City Manager Greg McDanel and Assistant City Manager Ryan Heiland are gearing up for their second presentation at the International Town and Gown Association conference.

The two will talk about their partnership with Northwest Missouri State on a number of projects. They spoke at last year’s conference about the Fourth Street Corridor Improvement project where the city worked with Northwest to obtain funds. The improvement project, which would enhance the main stretch of streets incoming students take to get to campus from the downtown, showed a partnership that the Maryville city managers shared at last year’s ITGA conference.

This year’s conference presentation will update those in attendance on that project as well as a number of other partnerships the city and Northwest have undertaken since.
