Waldron Mayor Neil Cherry will be requesting that the State Highway Department change the speed limit in a section of Highway on East 80 from 55 mph to 35 mph. “It’s a residential area and considered inside the city limits,” Cherry noted. Adding that the reduced speed is needed due to the children who play in that area.
In other news, Cherry dated “Coffee with Friends,” which is held at Dalton’s Place, for September 18. The speakers will be the new Family Dollar manager and a representative from WAPDD, Western Arkansas Planning and Development District.
