The Polk County Quorum Court met Tuesday night in Mena for the last meeting of 2018. The meeting was brief and mostly routines business.
Polk County Judge Brandon Ellison read a proclamation honoring retiring Justice of the Peace Ben Finley thanking him for his years of service to the county. The proclamation was signed by the Judge and Quorum Court members.
The next Quorum Court meeting will be held in January 2019.
On a related note, newly elected county and municipal officials and those re-elected will be sworn in at 9:00 a.m. on January 2, 2018 in the Polk County Courthouse by Judge Danny Thrailkill. The swearing in ceremony will be open to the public.
