CARTHAGE, MO – A program that helps to build a more colorful landscape in the “Maple Leaf City” is growing.
“Carthage City Council” members have approved more than $25,000 to help fund “Vision Carthage.”
The money will help transition what had been a part-time operation, to full-time.
“Vision Carthage” Executive Director, Abi Almandinger, says the expanded hours will definitely make an impact.
“We’re kind of a one man band right now so we need to build some staffing and expand a little bit.” Says Almandinger.
“Vision Carthage” handles projects ranging from “Carthage in Bloom,” and building revitalization, to “Route 66” and entrance points to the city.
