Changes may be on the way at Saunders Heights.

At the beginning of Tuesday night’s meeting of the Berryville City Council, Mayor Tim McKinney said the city is working with a company to build a new tower in the area and remove the old towers as their leases expire. McKinney said removing the old towers will open up the view of the city and the new tower will help provide revenue for Berryville as the city collects a portion of the lease.

Later the council unanimously approved the use of City Square Park for the 34th annual Ice Cream Social and 5K Run which will be held Friday, June 7, and Saturday, June 8.

“It doesn’t seem possible that it has been 34 years,” said Alderwoman Cindy George.

The council also unanimously approved the use of George Pond Park for the annual Kiwanis Kids’ Fishing Derby, which will be held from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday, June 8.

Later, Alderwoman Linda Riddlesperger said she has received complaints about different properties breaking ordinances regarding trash and inoperable vehicles. McKinney said that some citations have already been issued and that these problems occur more often in the summertime.

The council’s next regular meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 2, at City Hall.
