New tornado siren expected at Oct. Walnut Ridge council meeting

WALNUT RIDGE, Ark. – After a summer full of busy city council meetings in Walnut Ridge, the city has earned a month to catch its breath.

Very little is on the agenda for the October meeting of the council, with the only notable item being a resolution for a new tornado siren at the Walnut Ridge Regional Airport, to serve the College City area.

College City will pay for $15,000 while Walnut Ridge will pick up the rest of the cost, if the resolution passes.

It was previously brought up at September’s meeting but there was a bit of confusion between the College City clerk and Walnut Ridge on the amounts being paid by each. The item was tabled for October’s meeting.

Old Business

The third reading of the ordinance to update misuse/abuse of recycling laws in the city will be held.

The third reading for the ordinance to raise sewer rates will also be held.

Other Business

The sale of a city airplane will be discussed by the council. Also, the sale of excess city equipment via auction will also be discussed.

The council meets at 6 p.m. at the police complex in Walnut Ridge.
