This morning, we have an update to a story we brought you last week about Webb City staff not updating the city's website to comply with Missouri's Sunshine law. KRPS's Fred Fletcher-Fierro has more.

Last Wednesday, I reported that Webb City staff failed to update their communities website to reflect the most current agenda or minutes from city council meetings for nearly two months. Missouri Sunshine Law requires communities to post the meeting agendas, time, and location no later than 24 hours before it is scheduled.

As of last Wednesday, December 7, the final agenda published was for the meeting on Monday, October 24. The Agenda, Minutes, or Administrator's Report was never updated for the two meetings that took place in November. Following up on the story, I monitored Webb City's City Agenda and Minutes Archive at

Friday morning, the two missing agendas now appeared on the website. The agenda for tonight's meeting also materialized last Friday afternoon. On tonight's agenda city council will discuss how staff is managing electrical problems at King Jack Park and grants the town will apply for to improve sidewalks and other transportation needs.

Tonight's Webb City, City Council meeting is also the final session for 2022. It gets underway at City Hall at 5:30. For 89 9 KRPS, I'm Fred Fletcher-Fierro

Since 2017 Fred Fletcher-Fierro has driven up Highway 171 through thunderstorms, downpours, snow, and ice storms to host KRPS’s Morning Edition. He’s also a daily reporter for the station, covering city government, elections, public safety, arts, entertainment, culture, sports and more. Fred has also spearheaded and overseen a sea change in programming for KRPS from a legacy classical station to one that airs a balance of classical, news, jazz, and cultural programming that better reflects the diverse audience of the Four States. For over two months in the fall of 2022 he worked remotely with NPR staff to relaunch to an NPR style news and information website.

In the fall of 2023 Fred was promoted to Interim General Manager and was appointed GM in Feburary of 2024.
