The Garfield City Council holds its regular monthly meeting at City Hall on the second Tuesday of each month, starting at 6:00 PM. The meeting is held in the Alderman Terry Warren Room and open to the public.

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.
