JOPLIN — Joplin officials are planning a public meeting Monday to hear what residents need to help recover from losses suffered in the May 22 tornado.

City Manager Mark Rohr said a public meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday in Taylor Auditorium at Missouri Southern State University.

The Joplin Globe reports that information about debris removal, how the tornado recovery is proceeding and what assistance is available will be provided at the meeting.

Rohr says he's encouraging anyone who suffered damage in the tornado to be at the meeting.

The city's van and trolley system will provide free transportation for those who need it to get to the meeting.
