Support the Southwest Trail! - Pulaski County Quorum Court
July 27, 2017, 5:45pm - July 27, 2017, 7:00pm
Pulaski County is looking to approve $176,874, in matching funds (6%) of a $2,653,120 Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP) Grant. The Quorum Court tried to approve the funding last month, however with 7 votes yes , 5 votes no and 3 members absent, the ordinance did not have the required 8 votes to pass. Our understanding is that Thursday’s measure has exactly 8 votes currently in favor of the ordinance. That’s enough to pass, but if someone does not show up that night or decides to change their mind, the measure will not pass and the Southwest Trail will lose out on 2.56 million dollars of funding.
We need you help! Please attend the Pulaski County Quorum Court Meeting, this Thursday, July 27th to show support for the Southwest Trail. We need to pack the house Thursday night and demonstrate the support the Southwest Trail has to the Quorum Court. And this week please reach out to the 5 JP’s who are planning on voting no and respectfully voice your support for the Southwest Trail.
