City of Walker Moves Into New City Hall
Walker Mayor Jimmy Watson, Mayor Pro Tem Scarlett Milton Major, Councilman Richard Wales, Councilman David Clark and proud members of the municipal staff, welcomed the public to view the new City Hall on Friday, May 14th. The magnificent new building is a result of years of saving and planning by city leaders. During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Mayor Watson delivered generous remarks to over 150 dignitaries giving much of the credit to the city’s forefathers for constructing an extensive natural gas system years before the city started to realize its commercial and residential growth. Walker now has the second-largest municipal gas system in the state and ranks in the top 100 in the Nation. “We owe so much of our financial success to the prudent leadership and careful planning by the current Council and the city’s leaders before us,” said Mayor Watson. “We are so proud and grateful to have this beautiful and comfortable building that will no doubt allow our capable staff to better serve the citizens of Walker,” added Watson. LMA’s Deputy Director Richard Williams and LaMATS Executive Director Cliff Palmer attended the ceremony and took a few photos as part of the LMA’s new Drone Imaging Service.
