WR City Council deals
with insurance, millage


Gloria Wilkerson
Staff Writer

The Walnut Ridge City Council approved Arkansas Municipal League fees totaling $18,133 for 2013, and approved the renewal of the Firemen's Pension Fund Annual Millage at their meeting on Nov. 13.

The council also approved a liability insurance policy that will cover Guitar Park. The policy will cost the city $2,028 per year but is required by the Union Pacific Railroad, who owns the property where the park is located. The insurance coverage was purchased from Commercial General Liability through Mullen Insurance Agency of Walnut Ridge.

A Floodplain Ordinance and Flood Damage Prevention Code was also approved by the council. The ordinance is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency in order to keep insurance for city residents.

Mayor Don House told councilmen that engineers were here on Nov. 9 for a walk-through on the more than $3 million sewer project the city hasbeen involved in, the South Point, Midway Road and Luther Bridges Road projects. House said the Walnut Ridge School project is also nearing completion and should bring needed relief in the area it serves.

In other business:

  • the Christmas parade will be held on Dec. 4.

  • a new furnace has been installed at the city shop because the old furnace was beyond reasonable repair. The police complex is currently experiencing furnace difficulties, as well.

  • the street department is working on the city's Christmas lights and decorations, replacing bulbs, etc. The park department has repairs to their lights completed for the displays in the park. As a safety issue this year, slighting will be placed on higher ground and less on low ground due to electrical problems incurred in the past.

  • work continues on industrial development with two significant prospects.

  • twelve dumpsters were filled during the two-week city cleanup.
