Fayetteville’s newest aldermen toured several downtown facilities on Tuesday as part of the city’s New Aldermen Orientation program.
Lindsley Smith, the city’s communication director, led Sarah Marsh, Martin Schoppmeyer, and Alan Long through City Hall, the Development Services Building, the Courts Building, Fire Station One, the Police Department, and the City Television Center.
Launched in 2009 by Resolution No. 41-09, the program requires an official orientation for newly-elected Fayetteville City Council members. The orientation typically begins in December and includes information sessions and tours of city departments such as Water and Sewer, Transportation, Fleet, Parks and Recreation, Animal Services, Airport, and Solid Waste and Recycling.
