City of Winnfield Invests in Water System Improvements

Pictured from left to right are Amanda Ames, LDH/OPH, Chief Engineer; Jennifer Wilson, LDH/OPH/DWRLF, Program Manager; Alan Offner, Foley & Judell, L.L.P., Attorney; Honorable George Moss, Mayor of Winnfield; Henry Shuler, P.E., Shuler Consulting Company.

Nearly 5,000 residents in the City of Winnfield and surrounding areas will soon receive cleaner, safer drinking water, thanks to a new $800,000 water storage tank and system upgrades that are being installed by the City of Winnfield’s Water System.

The new tank and site piping will replace an old, outdated ground tank system that had developed several leaks over the years, compromising the quality of drinking water for local customers.

“The existing ground storage tank had been cited as being out of compliance with the state’s sanitary code for some time. It was necessary for the city to make improvements and the state’s Drinking Water Revolving Loan Fund Program gave us an affordable means to pay for those improvements,” City of Winnfield Mayor George Moss said.

Allen Speaks at Recent Rotary Meeting

Jay Hinckley and Kathy Allen

Through the years, many Winn residents may have sold a home or a property. Whether it was their own home as they moved on to a new residence or a camp or the home of a parent as they’ve handled the estate, they may have wondered what steps they should take, what expenses they ought to make to help get the best price for that property.

Rotarian Jay Hinckley had program responsibilities for the January 23 meeting of the Rotary Club of Winnfield and invited Jonesboro realtor Kathy Allen to speak about things a seller ought to do to get the best sale price in the shortest time. Are there items on a must-do checklist? Are there things that some sellers spend money on only to find that it does not benefit the sale? Should they sell the property “asis” or should they seek a higher price by providing an allowance for certain items that need attention?
