CITY CORNER by Mayor Brent Hinckley

 

    The weather still seems confused with being both late summer and mid-fall in the same week, but with Homecoming and the Fall ArtFest both this past weekend and Halloween this week, I am pretty sure we are now well into Fall.  The City continues to make small improvements that sometimes make big statements.  The crews installed the new horse and cow puncher sculpture at the entrance to the park last week before the football game.  We will continue to complete that addition to our park entrance with rock around the base and some special lighting to enhance it.  We also have just received a new stage for the Community Building, thanks to the generous members of the Band Boosters and the Mason Community Foundation.  This should make most every big event at the Community Building a good bit easier to set up, and several groups have already been celebrating this addition.  At the City office we are working to finish out our fiscal year and complete several different projects that we want to implement before the end of the calendar year.  We have even begun considering a new source of renewable energy with the proposal of a solar farm just south of town providing some of the electricity for our residents.  We will keep you updated on that change as information becomes available and decisions are to be made. 

     Another new possibility in the near future is starting to take shape off of Hwy 29 to the east of town.  There has been a start at the site work and ground leveling for the new senior apartment complex, and they are planning a “ground breaking” for mid-November, so keep your eyes open for that news.  There will be 45 units for senior citizens, and I have already heard several from our community and others who grew up here and would like to return commenting that they are excited by these new options.  Sometimes it takes someone outside of our community seeing things with a new vision to bring about the change that might make our town a better place for everyone.  I know I have seen that many times before with the changing businesses in town.  It seems that many of our new residents bring fresh ideas and great enthusiasm to add to the many citizens that have been making Mason a better hometown for years.  It takes all of us working together to make the progressive changes that keep our town a great place to live and work.

      For the next couple of weeks I will be out of town for a little relaxing and refreshing break.  Monica and I are going to get away and enjoy the fall foliage and quiet of central Arkansas, and I am intending to try and put the daily challenges of our town aside for a few days.  I will not be writing a column or answering the phone, but that will not mean that I am not thinking about our community while I am gone.  In fact that has been my experience in the past, that a few days away makes the enjoyment of our home all the sweeter when we return.  Of course, the first day I get back will also be our next City Council meeting, on November 20, but that is just part of the job.  If you have any thoughts or concerns, please let the other City elected officials or the City staff know, and we will see how we can best meet your needs.  Mason is a great hometown now, and I look forward to how the future will enhance our community.
