Editor's note ─ The Home Rule Charter of the City, approved by the voters of the City at the regular election on April 3, 1973, is set out in this Part I as adopted. Amendments have been worked in with the source thereof cited in history notes in parentheses following amended Sections. The absence of such a note indicates that the Section is derived unchanged from the Charter as approved April 3, 1973. It should be noted that Article XIII of the charter is not printed herein since Section 13.04 provided that the Article would cease to be a part of the Charter upon the adoption of the Charter by the citizens of the City.
PREAMBLE: We, the people of Neosho, in order to secure the benefits of self-government through home rule as provided in the Constitution of the State of Missouri, do adopt this Charter for the good government of our City.
