On the second Tuesday of each month, starting at 6:00 PM, the Garfield City Council meets at City Hall to consider legislative business concerning municipal operations. These monthly meetings of the City Council are open to the public. The agenda for the November 13 City Council Meeting is posted here.
Mayor Gary Blackburn and Alderman James Teeselink have won their re-election bids. Mayor Blackburn will serve another 4-year term as the Mayor of Garfield, and Alderman Teeselink will serve another 2-year term on the Garfield City Council, representing Ward 2 in Position 2. Both new terms will commence on January 1, 2019. To learn more about the local races in the 2018 Midterm Election, follow the Learn More link below.
On August 14, 2018, the Garfield City Council passed two resolutions that paved the way for the City to seek funds to enhance bicycle and pedestrian areas, with a bicycle trailhead at Hamilton Park.

Welcome to the City of Garfield Website!
Abraham Lincoln’s barber, William de Fleurville, was about to shave his beard, when Mr. Lincoln said, “Willie, let’s give them a chance to grow.” And grow they did.
I believe, the day will come when people will say, “They gave the City of Garfield a chance to grow and grow it did.”
On behalf of the Garfield City Council, I welcome you to our new City of Garfield website. I believe you will find the contents of this site to be informative, enlightening, and entertaining.
As you browse about, please pay attention to our local business partners. When you “Buy In Garfield,” you automatically become a B.I.G. Spender, and thereby further the growth of the City of Garfield.
If you are a first-time visitor to our website, I encourage you to browse content about the historic Garfield Elementary School, with its iconic Bell Tower, and our own Hamilton Park. Also, Garfield is near travel destinations in the region, including Beaver Lake, Lost Bridge Village, the Pea Ridge National Military Park, and the Rob and Melani Walton Nature Preserve. No trip to Northwest Arkansas would be complete without a visit to one or more of these local jewels.
Lastly, it is my hope that this website will be the “tie that binds us together,” as citizens, tourists, businesses, and government. God Bless America, and God Bless Garfield.
