Askew and Hartley to be honored by F'ville City Council

Though the agenda at the Thursday night Fayetteville City Council will be brief, it will be a time to recognize the military service police officers Glenn Askew and Warren Hartley as they return from a 14-month deployment in the Middle East and central Asia.

The two will be recognized for their dedication to the country and to their community, said Police Chief Steve Heaton.

The council will also consider assigning a $19,000 balance in the Downtown Development Authority’s (DDA) Designated Fund Balance from the sale of the Hollingsworth House to the DDA regular account to support downtown revitalization.

DDA Director Brian Wismer in an April 22 memo said that the City Council in FY 2008 assigned $50,000 from the sale of the Hollingsworth House to the DDA Designated Fund Balance to be used for downtown projects as appropriate needs were identified. An appropriation of $31,000 was approved by the City Council for the Preserve America matching grant for the downtown wayfinding sign program, leaving a balance of $19,000, Wismer said.

The DDA is requesting that these remaining funds be assigned to the DDA without conditions where the funds can be directed to support downtown revitalization efforts including, but not limited to, the Downtown Façade Grant Program, Wismer said.

In addition, said Wismer, the DDA would use any remaining funds for downtown planning and improvements.
