CRAB ORCHARD - Citizens who want to do their part to improve their community have a chance tonight at Crab Orchard's Community Association meeting at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.
The association will discuss several new city committees, including beautification, historic preservation, Neighborhood Watch and Fourth of July/event planning.
Anyone is eligible to join the committees, which were formed last month.
"This will be our second meeting. The first went really well; we had 20 or so people come," said City Clerk Cheri Manuel.
Manuel said the meetings average about two hours and are public discussions where everyone has a chance to speak.
"It's very informal, and we have a commissioner responsible for each committee, so it's more like a discussion," said Manuel.
For more information, call City Hall at (606) 355-2319.
