Great Northwest Days at the capitol is designed to promote local issue awareness by unifying communities of northwest Missouri by creating a better way to present issues to the states legislators. This regional effort to influence legislation with the purpose to benefit all of northwest Missouri and the state as a whole started in 2003, and has been a voice for small northwest communities in the state. Maryville City manager Matt Lecerf says Great Northwest Days has been very beneficial in the past and is anxious for what this year may bring. One key topic Maryville council members wish to bring up is the state lacking 911 and emergency services improvement tax from cellular services. Missouri is currently the only state that doesn't bring any revenue for their 911 and emergency services through cell phone taxation.
