Harrison Mayor Highlights Success in State of the City

Harrison Mayor Jerry Jackson highlighted many bright spots in Harrison.

During Thursday evening's city council meeting, the mayor began his State of the City address by mentioning the new city hall building. He explained what a blessing the new building is in comparison to the old one. City business has occurred in the new one for a year and a half. Jackson also covered city sales tax.

He said there's revenue to do "extra things." He also added that in contrast to 15 other Arkansas cities which are close to Harrison's size, Harrison maintains the lowest sales tax rate. "Not only are we the lowest, we're doing a lot with what we have," Jackson said.

Later, the mayor mentioned projects. Creekside Community Center is making progress. Finished projects include updating the lights downtown and more. Police performance was also put in the spotlight.

Jackson explained Harrison's police force is "really going after" DUIs and DWIs. He credited this to a shift in work shifts. More was mentioned in the mayor's speech.

The full council meeting is available online.
