Newly appointed City of Hackett Mayor Trini Harper has been on the job a little over two weeks. She came into the position with veteran city employees and city council, a positive start for her tenure.
“Everybody does great at their job,” Harper stated. “They know their job and how to do it.”
She came in on day one asking what was expected of her, and in turn her
One thing she was clear on, that the city will back each of the departments and address any concerns. “I needed to change the hours for the safety of our street supervisor,” she commented. “It was for his safety, I didn’t like him picking up trash on the side of the road in the dark, it was too dangerous.”
Earlier this month, State Representative Matt Pitsch visited the city to discuss future growth and development with Harper. Part of that discussion included the sports complex and proposed location. “We’ve been in talks over this for three years, and we’ve still got a ways to go,” Harper added.
Currently, Harper is exploring the costs of engineering fees for the grant the city received from the Arkansas Department of Transportation for a sidewalk project. –See related
