[ARCHIVED] Perrin Renamed to State City Street Aid Committee

Mayor Harold Perrin

Jonesboro Mayor Harold Perrin has been reappointed to the State City Street Aid Committee. 

The committee is composed of nine Arkansas mayors — three appointed by the governor, three by the Speaker of the House of Representatives and three by Senate President Pro Tem Jim Hendren, who appointed Perrin.

The committee oversees the State Aid Street Program and meets at least twice a year. Cities request funding for specific streets and needs in their communities through the program. The mayors, assisted by the Arkansas Department of Transportation, then determine how that money is distributed.

“This is the committee that determines what cities need funding, and while it doesn’t require a lot of time, it makes important decisions for cities in Arkansas,” Perrin said.

The next State Aid City Street Committee meeting is Feb. 12 in Little Rock, in conjunction with the Arkansas Municipal League Winter Conference. Perrin is also president of the Arkansas Municipal League.
