A new park could make its way to the White City Community with the possibility of a grant from the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism.
The Faulkner County Quorum Court will consider a resolution that would allow County Judge Preston Scroggin to apply for grant funding to develop a public park in the community. If the grant is approved, the community has resolved to provide necessary resources to maintain the park and facilities for a 25-year period.
The court will consider the grant resolution as well as other items during its monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the county judge’s office.
The grant is part of the Facilities for Underdeveloped Neighborhoods [FUN] Park funds through the Parks and Tourism Department. These grants are targeted to areas of the state that do not presently have facilities, or whose facilities are inadequate in size or scope to meet local needs.
The court will also consider three ordinances which will transfer funds within departments, including an appropriation to 911 of funds reimbursed by grants. The court will also consider a transfer within the county judge’s department to fund a full-time position. This was a change from the original part-time position, which was approved by the personnel committee in June.
