City of Jonesboro

Representatives of Jonesboro, including Mayor Harold Perrin, flew to Springfield, Missouri, this week to share experiences and ideas in city stewardship.

“It was wonderful to see what’s going on in Springfield, and they have been through a lot of situations that are similar to issues we are dealing with in Jonesboro,” Perrin said. “We exchanged ideas on quality of life issues, things you can partner on with your local university, and public-private partnerships – a whole range of topics.”
