Warrior gets state funding for new sidewalks along U.S. 31

WARRIOR — Warrior’s plan to install new sidewalks along the southern end of U.S. Highway 31 has finally gotten the green light.

The Warrior City Council voted to accept the proposal by state agencies to fund the installation of the new sidewalks, which will run along Warrior’s main road roughly from the shopping center that’s home to the Piggly Wiggly supermarket, then go southward to the city’s public housing area and end at Baker Street.

“We’ve worked on this for eight years — Rena worked on it for seven and I worked on it for one,” Mayor Johnny Ragland said, referring to his predecessor, longtime mayor Rena Hudson.

In other business, the council promoted Melissa Brannon from part-time to full-time dispatcher, and hired Emily McCombs as a part-time dispatcher. The move was necessitated by the city taking over dispatching and jail services for the town of Morris. (McCombs was formerly a dispatcher there.)

With Warrior now handling dispatching and jail services for Morris, Kimberly and Trafford, Police Chief Ray Horn said that residents are now seeing better police service with the cooperation between departments.

“It almost functions like a metro police force,” Horn said.
