The Helena-West Helena City Council is set to meet in regular session on Tuesday, March 1, 2011. The meeting will be held in the City Council Chambers, 226 Perry Street, Helena-West Helena, Arkansas across the street from the Phillips County Courthouse and Hicky Detention Center (County Jail). City Council Members were delivered their packets on Friday, February 25, 2011. See Council Packet Online. Complete Council Packet.
The agenda has nine names listed in the section labeled "employee hearings." Those persons are Victor Jordan, Oshea Burrell, Dana Flowers, Felicia Ross-Jordan, John Huff, Zellie Jackson Word, Renita Danley, Tracy Williams Davis, and Belinda Davis Covington.
The council may also discuss a new subdivision to be located off West Street which will include 30 new homes. This project was started under the Valley Administration. However, tax credits and other concerns delayed the project. Now the city council is likely to be required to pass the long awaited Revised Zoning Plan prior to this project moving forward.
The budget which was passed on February 15, 2011, was vetoed on February 16, 2011. See Mayor Willis's Veto. The budget remains in limbo pending a decision from the court or a voluntary compromise by the mayor and city council. See Pride v. Willis Lawsuit. Report: Willis Supporter Sues Him. Response: Willis Answer to Lawsuit. Action: 4th Budget Veto
