The View from the Mayor’s Desk-
I hope this update finds all of Greenland’s citizens enjoying the beginning of the fall season here in beautiful northwest Arkansas. Here is a brief update of some things going on in our great city:
- With the help from the folks at the Beaver Lake Watershed group, we have installed a Bioswale at Taylor Park. This is a natural filtering system from runoff water at the park. This is phase one of a landscaping and construction project and is 100% funded by a grant from the Beaver Lake Watershed group.
- We have been approved to receive a $9,000 grant from the Boston Mountain Solid Waste District which will go toward purchasing a cardboard compacter at our recycling center. The volume at the recycling center continues to grow. We very much appreciate our citizens separating their recyclables.
- We are once again partnering with Code Red to alert our citizens of any significant weather in Greenland. In the next few days a link will be live on our website for citizens to go to in order to sign up. This service is free to all Greenland citizens. Go to www.greenland-ar.com to visit our city website and sign up. The link will be at the bottom of the page.
- We have several other projects in the pipeline that I will update our citizens on later. Great things are happening in Greenland!
