In other action, the city council gave its unanimous approval to the 2019 operating budget.
The council also approved payment of a $110 annual fee to continue its partnership with the Northwest Arkansas Economic Development District in Harrison.
Mayor Hammack reports the council approved three other items of business.
Mayor Hammack also advised the council of a vacancy in 2019 on the planning and zoning commission, as well as two on the sewer commission board.
