GRAVETTE -- Members of the Gravette city council dispensed with business quickly at their regular meeting Thursday evening, July 28. In a matter of just a few minutes, they passed three resolutions and voted to issue a conditional use permit.
A resolution was passed to declare as surplus a 1996 Spartan model 5288 480 ladder truck which is no longer in service.
A second resolution was passed to remove Carl Rabey, Cindy Pembleton and Mike von Ree as signers from all city of Gravette bank accounts and to add David Henzie, Don Turner, Kurt Maddox, Mallory Weaver and Margo Thomas as signers on all such accounts. Rabey and Pembleton will continue to have full log-on access to all online accounts.
The third resolution approved budget adjustments for the 2022 budget.
Unanimous approval was given to issue a conditional use permit to Key Ventures LLC to allow the construction and operation of an RV resort park known as Little Sugar Trailside RV Resort on a property at 2524 Forest Hills Blvd. The property is currently zoned R-3, multi-family district.
Council members voted to move the August council meeting from Aug. 25 to Aug. 18 and to pay $300 to the Arkansas Municipal League for police settlement.
Finance director Carl Rabey was not present but submitted written reports of the June financial statement and the bond update.
Mayor Kurt Maddox concluded the meeting by reading a thank you note from Gravette citizen Janna Sharp. Sharp wrote thanking the mayor and city council members for all they do to make living in Gravette a pleasure. She expressed appreciation for all the hard work city employees put in and said, "I love the walkable sidewalk, beautiful downtown area, and fun new park equipment."
