Maryville Mayor Jason McDowell presents the city’s Beautification Award for July to homeowner Carol Owens.

MARYVILLE, Mo. — Carol Owens, 415 S. Alco St., is the July winner of the City of Maryville’s Beautification Award.

The backyard has also been redone with flower plantings and decorative pieces.

Each month from April to October the city recognizes a property owner for beautification and improvement efforts at their home or business.

Winners are chosen from among nominations voted on by municipal code enforcement officers.
