GRAVETTE -- Members of the Gravette city council, at their regular meeting Thursday, Sept. 23, passed three ordinances and approved five resolutions.

Two resolutions were approved to declare city property as surplus. The first approved declaring as surplus four SCBA masks and two sections of five-inch hose which are no longer in service and donating the equipment to the Sulphur Springs Fire Department. The second resolution approved declaring as surplus a 2017 Ford Explorer totaled in a recent wreck and authorized Mayor Kurt Maddox to "exchange, sell or otherwise dispose of the property in an appropriate manner."

An ordinance was passed accepting the right-of-way, street, alley and easement dedications for Teri's Place Subdivision. The final plat for Teri's Place was approved with the following conditions still to be met: the contract with Empire Electric for utilities and lights, the bond for the unfinished storm drain and the one-year workmanship warranty must all be received.

An ordinance was passed rezoning a parcel of 8.41 acres off Highway 72 owned by Kayla and Colton Carlton, Jennifer Darline and Travis Arnold from A-1, agricultural, to C-2, highway commercial. Another was passed rezoning 1.29 acres at 13202 Camille Lane in Hiwasse from A-1, agricultural, to R-1, residential.

In other new business, resolutions were approved opening a new bank account for the Community Development Block Grant money at Grand Savings Bank, levying the city real property tax and the personal property tax for 2022 at 4.75 mills and approving adjustments for the 2021 budget.

Carl Rabey, city finance director, reported there had been no changes in the financial statement or the bond balances since the Sept. 9 Committee of the Whole meeting.

At the conclusion of the meeting, council member Ron Theis commented that the new bathroom in Kindley Park looks good, and Mayor Maddox reported that Katherine Martinez has been hired as a new employee in the water department. She will work at the front counter.
