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.
Arkansas State Police have identified the two victims that were airlifted to Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock on Friday.

The driver, Gayle Moore, 39, of Little Rock was killed in the three-car accident that shut down the entire eastbound lane near the Alcoa Road Exit in Benton.
In a letter dated Friday, June 13, Mayor Johnny McMahan contends that three Bauxite aldermen are "meeting, discussing and making decisions of Bauxite affairs before an official meeting, which is contrary to state law."
The alderman accused of the violation are Karen Brooks, Paula Matthews and Mona Struble.
McMahan claims that on Tuesday, May 27, Brooks, Matthews and Struble met at City Hall and rode together to and from a settlement conference held at the federal courthouse in downtown Little Rock to consider a settlement in the Purifoy v. Bauxite lawsuit.
