Northeast Coalition to meet on January 11
Jan 11 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

The Northeast Coalition for Roadway Safety will hold its quarterly meeting on Thursday, January 11 from 9:30 a.m.-11 a.m. in various locations using videoconferencing at Missouri Department of Transportation facilities. “We want to accommodate all our safety advocates, so we are encouraging anyone to attend who might be interested in the grants we offer or the programs available through the Coalition,” said Marisa Ellison, facilitator of the NE Coalition.
The agenda includes a presentation on opioid use and addiction by Jim LeBaron, administrator of the Adair County Health Department and Damon Kizzire, EdD, superintendent of Kirksville R-3 Schools, and an update on a radio campaign for north central Missouri. In addition to these presentations, discussion will be held about the number of fatalities in northeast Missouri, which is actually lower than in recent years; however, there were a significantly higher percentage of those who died who weren’t wearing a seat belt.
Other discussion will include information about free online resources available for older drivers and their families, and equipment that can be available to law enforcement and emergency medical services through the Coalition grant process.
The primary meeting will be held at the MoDOT district office, 1711 South Highway 61, Hannibal, Mo. in the Salt River Room.
The Mexico Maintenance Facility, at 1600 Christopher Drive in Mexico, will have videoconference capabilities for the meeting.
Some organizations that have benefitted from previous funding include local law enforcement, schools, hospitals, and health departments, among others.
