Fire Chief Josh Woods received the 2020 Mayor’s Impact Award, one given by the Mayor each year to an individual who has made a definite impact on our community, at the September 22, 2020 City Council meeting.
In addition to Fire Chief, he serves as the Building Inspector, Fire Investigator/Marshall, Code Enforcement Officer, and as a Part-Time 2 Police Officer for Mayflower, plus a myriad of professional and personal accomplishments. Mayor Holland presented a plaque, along with, a memory book containing letters from family members and former co-workers.
City Clerk, Barbara Mathes, stated, “I would be remiss not to acknowledge some others—your wife Dena. Thank you for your love and support of this man, and also to your children, Keeton and Kenzie. Thank you for sharing your dad with us. I know it’s not easy when a meal or a family function gets interrupted, or you are awakened in the middle of the night when Josh gets the call. Just know you are appreciated also.”
Thank you, Chief Woods!
Letter from Mayor Holland regarding the Covid-19 outbreak:
The City of Mayflower is now operating at LEVEL 3 status. This means no public access to government offices, water department, or Court offices. These offices will remain open with essential crew members, and residents can still pay their water bill through the drive-thru window or drop box.
In addition, we will be following the directives, lead by Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, the Arkansas Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control. I am in touch with our State, local and Federal agencies on a daily basis. Any updates will be posted here on our website.
Some of the most recent actions related to Covid-19:
- Governor Issues Mask Mandate
- City offices are operating at LEVEL 3 status (offices closed to public, but services remain active)
- MAYFLOWER SCHOOLS WILL OFFER 2 LEARNING PATHWAYS FOR YOU TO CHOOSE FROM.
- Limited Dine-in Restaurant Service
- BARS, and Entertainment still prohibited
- GYMS AND INDOOR ENTERTAINMENT VENUES
- Mayflower Waterworks temporarily suspends water service disconnections 501-470-1818
This is an unprecedented time, especially for Mayflower. We’ve been through many challenges, but this time we are dealing with Covid-19, a virus that not only affects our city, but reaches far beyond our borders.
I encourage all of us to take the necessary steps to keep ourselves, our families and our neighbors safe by doing all we can as individuals to limit the spread of this virus.
Thank you for your cooperation, your understanding and your sacrifices during this time.
Mayor Randy Holland
