Council to vote on sign for bridge
The North Little Rock City Council will vote Monday on whether to authorize a Veterans Memorial sign on the Broadway bridge.
In 2017, the Arkansas Department of Transportation dedicated the Broadway bridge on U.S. 70 as Veterans Memorial Bridge in honor of those who served in the armed forces.
If the resolution passes, the sign will be installed on the North Little Rock side of the Broadway Bridge.
Condemnations on council agenda
The North Little Rock City Council is scheduled to vote Monday on whether to condemn properties located in various areas throughout the city.
The council will decide whether to declare certain buildings, houses and other structures located at 4210 Baucum Pike and 315 N. Hickory St. a public nuisance and condemn the structures. The council also will have to repeal a resolution that declared 11 Baker Circle to be a public nuisance.
Mayor Joe Smith said the City Council agenda usually has two to three condemnation decisions on the agenda for each meeting.
"We are very aggressive on tearing down these old, dilapidated buildings," Smith said.
