City of Hartford Continues Mission to Aid Neighbors


By Tammy Moore Teague
The Hartford City Council met on Monday,  August 20 and through a motion, approved the continued support of the community’s food pantry, Mines of Abundance. –See related story
The council voted to approve renewing the lease for another year, and will continue to assist the charitable effort by paying the utilities, liability insurance and forfeiting rent. “The council is a huge supporter of the mission and their community and I could never thank them enough,” explained Pantry Director Christina Helms.
In other business, it was reported that the youth are enjoying the recreational center at city hall on Friday and Saturday nights. Volunteers are always needed, and organizers hope this idea will grow and attract more of the town’s young people.
Lastly, it was determined that City Recorder/Treasurer, Judy Adair lives a few feet just outside the city limits. To remedy the situation, the Arkansas Municipal League suggested the council appoint her to the position, which she currently holds, since she has temporarily moved into the city limits. She can then solicit the City of Hartford to annex her property. The council voted unanimously and passed the motion as recommended by the Municipal League.
