The Parks Committee discussed making several possible changes at the city’s parks.
The Monticello City Council opened their monthly meeting by appointing City Clerk Andrea Chambers as President Pro Tem, to serve as Chairman and Presiding Officer over the meeting. As the County Clerk, and in accordance with established protocol, Ms. Chambers had already assumed the powers of the Mayor, following the death of the Honorable Mayor Allen Maxwell on March 10, 2014.
Monday’s groundbreaking ceremony was used as an occaision to begin the new improvment to city water service, move into the “electronic age”, with remote meter reading, and also a tribute to Mayor Allen Maxwell, who died last week. Many of Mayor Maxwell’s family members took part in Monday’s ceremony.
The City of Monticello held their first of four “Our Place” town hall meetings, Thursday night, hosted by assistant to the Mayor for planning, Zach Tucker.
A total of 9 folks attended the meeting, 4 from the TEA party, Tucker, a county employee from Ward 2, and 2 city hall staff, who were signing in attendees (both live in Ward 2), MLive.
The 40 minute presentation dealt with planning and vision concepts.
The discussion, which lasted over an hour, was unexpectedly open to all. The TEA party members and MLive, as well as others made the most of the opportunity to discuss the “SWOT” (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) to our area.
Monday’s meeting to discuss possible weather warning solutions was expected to be a quiet, notetaking event.
That was not the case, as voices and emotions begin to increase.
The full audio file of the meeting is posted below.
A 31-year-old Monticello man, while visiting a friend or relative in Drew Memorial, allegedly took the opportunity to vandalize at least 20 restrooms in the hospital, taking several unusual items from the “facilities.”
The suspect in this case also made the news a few months ago for the early-morning theft of a forklift.
In the next step of the ongoing weather warning saga between Code Red electronic notification and the traditional tornado warning sirens on towers, a discussion meeting was held at Western Sizzlin at noon on Monday, with Judge Robert Akin and the Drew County JP’s, who invited Monticello Mayor Allen Maxwell and other city officials he chose to include.
At the City Council’s Tuesday evening meeting, a local business owner asked the Council to pass an ordinance setting time limits for parking on the square.
The business owner requested an ordinance be passed, and signs installed, limiting parking to an unspecified number of hours, so that parking space can be more readily available for shoppers.
The owner of the attacking dog’s name was not mentioned during the meeting, nor was the fact that she’s the director of the Southeast Arkandsas Humane Society.
Due to technical difficulties, the video from the Quorum Court meeting is unavailabe.
The screens below, however, provide the audio from the meeting.
Posted below is the “2014 State of the City Report” as submitted by Mayor Allen Maxwell.
