Renee Westfall, candidate for Hot Springs City Director, addresses the Garland Good Government Group (http://ggggnews.com/) at the Garland County Public Library on November 12, 2015. Her remarks included some historical (1988) commentary about annexation, taxes, city finances, police and fire retirement, and water issues. She encouraged public attendance at the upcoming Board of Directors Meeting on Tuesday evening, November 17 when consideration of a revised 3-part property tax proposal for Hot Springs citizens is scheduled.
Garland County Judge Rick Davis provides an impromptu update on the Lake Ouachita and Lake DeGray water supply issue to the Garland Good Government Group (http://ggggnews.com/) audience on November 12, 2015 at the Garland County Public Library at the request of GGGG leader Bob Driggers.
Following the Judge’s remarks there was some follow-up discussion and speculation by others in attendance about whether there is a possibility of inappropriate political influence being brought to bear on the Corps of Engineers resulting in delaying (or potentially denying) approval of the Lake Ouachita option for increased Hot Springs water system capacity.
