Mayor Maxwell’s “State of the City” Address

January 29th, 2011 by

We start a new year by turning the corner with a new set of goals for our great City of Monticello. A new direction will begin with new priorities. The safety of our citizens, City employees, and visitors is the number one priority for our city within all city departments.

The city will uphold five fundamental policies: safety, quality, productivity, effectiveness with others and attendance. These policies will allow the city to function in an efficient manner that will save time and money. This administration will make every attempt to save money both as a safety net and for future generations to maintain our city. Our goal is to stretch every public dollar to achieve maximum benefit for the City.

In 2010 new projects were completed to improve the city. Three new pavilions were constructed in the parks and new bathrooms were built in McCloy Park. Two new bridges were rebuilt that were damaged by flooding. New playground timbers were added in the parks and a new adult softball field was begun at the Sports Complex. The drainage problem in McCloy Park was corrected.

In 2011 projects that have already begun will be completed and it is our goal to construct a new girl’s softball field.

City Hall maintenance issues (includes Fire and Police departments) will be analyzed by professional Engineers and Architects. Once the assessment process is complete we will start the restoration process. None of this will happen overnight as these are lingering long time problems.

Our goal is to make Monticello the favorite living, shopping, and recreational City in South East Arkansas. We will need the cooperation and assistance of all our citizens to help us clean up and improve our HOME. The city will be cleaner and safer and all our community, both local and visitors, will benefit.

I am proud to be your Mayor for the great city of Monticello, “The Natural Place to Live and Prosper”.

Sincerely,

Mayor Allen Maxwell

    Sounds like a great plan!

  2. Jim Hall says:

    When are we getting the traffic lights back on the square?

    And can we move the stop signs out to Hwy 83 at Jordan Drive and Scoggins Drive intersection. That needs to be a four way stop. It is almost impossible on school days to turn left or go straight from Jordan Drive west bound. With all the traffic leaving MIS turning west it bottle necks into a traffic jam.
