Code Compliance Crackdown in Garfield

Is your property up to code? Citizens of Garfield have been duly warned to bring their personal and business property into compliance with the City’s codes.

At the August meeting of the Garfield City Council, Code Enforcement Officer Scott Wassman explained that henceforth ordinances governing property in the City of Garfield will be enforced by the collection of penalties, according to the provisions in each associated City legislation.

Officer Wassman specified that vehicles that are not operational or not registered must be removed. Grass that has been allowed to grow to more than one foot high must be mowed. Building projects must be compliant with the City’s codified regulations.

To access building, plumbing, and fence construction permit applications, visit the Code Enforcement Department page.

Welcome to the City of Garfield Website!

Mayor Gary Blackburn and Smoki

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.
