Bauxite City Council is scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. today to discuss the possibility of lowering the salaries of the mayor and the aldermen.
In an email to the Bauxite alderman, Mayor Johnny McMahan explained that he believes the current salaries for the alderman and for the mayor's office are too high based on the number of residents in Bauxite.
McMahan provided the aldermen with a list of comparable aldermen's and mayors' salaries from similar sized towns in Arkansas.
The Bryant City Council will hold a special meeting at 6:30 tonight to discuss the city's contract with CodeRED.
The meeting will take place at City Hall.
At the meeting, the council will discuss the contract and "any actions necessary to issue payment for service," said Heather McKim, Bryant City Clerk.
This contract came into question during the council's meeting last week. When asked why residents were not notified by CodeRED of a recent boil order, Mayor Jill Dabbs said the notifications were removed from the budget at the beginning of the year.
