Polk County Housing Authority wants to recognize the officers who serve our area. Pictured accepting gift cards on behalf of the individual departments are: Sheriff Scott Sawyer, Tod Cannon, Mike Thomas, Jessie Curry, Dalton Myers, Chief Tommy Stueart, and Ronnie Richardson. Present representing the housing authority is Donna Hendricks, Sheila Pate, Jeanne Mabry and Executive Director Dixie Shrader. PCHA was the recipient of a grant provided through HUD to assist during the COVID 19 pandemic. With a portion of the grant money PCHA was able to extend a heartfelt thank you and a gift card for $50 to each of the Mena Police Department Officers, the Polk County Sheriff’s Department Officers, Grannis Officers, and the Troop K Officers that serve Polk County. We truly appreciate each one for their dedication and service to our community. The housing department has also been able to provide each family in housing and on the rental assistance program with face masks for their family. Additionally, housing was able to provide assistance with electric bills in the form of a lump sum to cover approximately two months electric bill. Plans are in process to provide other services to the residents in the future. Submitted photo.
