Helena-West Helena Ordered to Honor Voters Wishes

Chicot Memorial

HELENA-WEST HELENA, AR (Ben Caxton) — The city of Helena-West Helena has been ordered to immediately reapportion its city council into three wards. In 2016 62% of voters approved the restructuring of city government, and in his ruling Phillips County Circuit Judge E. Dion Wilson declared the city’s repeal of the vote illegal because an emergency clause attached to the ordinance did not conform to the requirements of the law and city officials did not meet requirements of Arkansas law to publish an ordinance in order for it to become effective.
