This has been a tough week for the residents and city leaders for the City of Barling. The honorable Mayor Barling passed away last Thursday, and the city has mourned the loss of a cornerstone of the community. Read Barling’s obituary here.
Another loss comes as Police Chief Roger Hayden resigns. The circumstances under which he resigned are unknown, but we do know that as of this afternoon, no interim chief has been named.
We will continue to follow this story and update it as we learn more. Our continued thoughts and prayers for the family of the honorable Mayor Barling.
