Benton Mayor David Mattingly has been given a 25 percent change order threshold for the Lower Military Road construction project.
The City Council approved an ordinance to this effect in a meeting Monday night.
The ordinance notes that the council previously had passed an ordinance giving the mayor a 15 percent contingency for change orders for this extensive project.
The original contract the city awarded to McGeorge Construction for the project was $7,837,272.
Bryant residents who were disappointed by the absence of fireworks on the Fourth of July will be excited to know the city plans to set off the fireworks display originally planned for Independence day at Bryantâ€™s Annual Fall Fest.
The festival will be held Oct. 6 at Bishop Park. The schedule of events includes a pancake breakfast at the Bryant Senior Activity Center at 9:30 a.m. The parade and festival start at 10 a.m.
A duct tape boat race is scheduled for 11 a.m., and the fireworks display will begin at 8 p.m.
Finding the perfect purse is no easy task.
It's a project the faint of heart should avoid at all costs because the quest is fraught with frustration and aggravation.
Whenever I find one I really like, it's a foregone conclusion it will wear out almost by the time I get all my stuff inside.
If it's really tacky, it will last till the proverbial cows come home.
I've found that most purses are either too big, too little, too plain, too fancy, too something.
